Best Middle Eastern food I've ever had

We ordered hummus with mushrooms and unions, falafel, pitas and the stuffed eggplant salad. It was all absolutely delicious, especially the mushrooms, which were grilled and tasted fantastic 馃槏 For dessert, I shared the baklava (which was a little dry and too crunchy) and chocolate truffles. The truffles were phenomenal and paired very well with the pistachio nuts it came with. I can definitely recommend coming here!

Pros: Affordable , Delicious food, Plenty of vegan options

Cons: Baklava is meh

YES YES YES! / Hummoes dat ookalweer?

When in Lisbon, pleas go here. The service is great, there is a lot of vegan/vegetarian food and it was so amazingly delicious. The safayech is something I never had before, it comes with the most amazing tzatziki I ever tasted.
The one thing I thought was a little weird, is that the pita鈥檚 van only be orderd for take away after 22:30 p.m. The waiter recommended us to order a hummus and extra falaffel, zo we could build our own.

Hier weten ze wel raad met hummus! Echt fantastisch lekker. De kant en klare pita鈥檚 zijn helaas voor afhaal na 22:30. Wij hebben een hummus shakshuka besteld (krijg je 2 pita鈥檚 bij) en los falafel. Zo konden we onze eigen pita bouwen. Mijn vriend (eet wel vlees) had de hummus meatballs. Ook zeer goed over te spreken.
Als voorgerechtje hadden we safayech met echt de beste tzatziki die ik ooit op heb.

Als je in Lissabon bent, 100% hier naartoe gaan!

Amazing experience

There were a bunch of different vegan things on the menu. The waiter let us know that we could also do a vegan tasting experience, which covers about 80% of the menu. We chose this and it turned out to be an amazing decision. So many different things to try and all the food was absolutely amazing. All the staff was super friendly as well. Can highly recommend this place! Would rate 5/5 stars if I could馃槃

Great meal

Our family had a great experience at Tantura. Make a reservation! Our family is vegan and there were great options. I highly recommend their homemade lemonade with date syrup! We loved mixing the mushroom hummus and tabouleh into pita. Staff were great as well and in a good location, easy to find. My husband enjoyed his local beer.

Pros: pita, lemonade

Cons: cauliflower puree needed other textures

Not impressed

We went in for dinner and ordered the cauliflower hummus, eggplant salad, falafel, the one other vegan starter, and the bread with olives. We weren't overly impressed by any of the dishes, and I would not recommend the eggplant salad, it was swimming in sauce and was just not good. The falafel was the best of them, it did have nice flavor. I also have to say we found hair in two different dishes... one I ignore but two was just unfortunate.

Pros: Vegan options clearly labeled

Nice options, but the service

The food is great and not too expensive. The atmosphere is really nice. What I absolutely hated was the fact that I wanted to have a Falafel Wrap. They have them, but only for take away or after 10:30pm. This is absolutely ridiculous and they said they can鈥檛 do it because it would take too long. Well, if I am just ordering it as takeaway they have to do it either way so I don鈥檛 see the point in not offering it for normal guests.

The first and probably last time I went there.

Pros: Some vegan options

Cons: Most of the food is only available for takeaway

Reservation needed

Guys, you need a reservation before you come here, we wanted to eat 2 times here, unfortunately one time it was closed ( opens at 6 30 pm ) and the second time it was full. The staff is friendly and the restaurant was cosy

SO many types of hummus

Wow, amazing place! We were so lucky to be the 4 of us, without reservation, and we were able to get a table straight away.
We shared a bottle of white wine, Tosca, which was very good and very reasonably priced.
They serve you immediately some beer bread (!) with 3 different sauces such as carrot, yoghurt and a green one I'm not sure of? All amazingly tasty.
We shared a couple of dishes such as Falafel, Pita bread with pepper hummus and a spinach pita.
A must go! Plus, the environment was so cosy and the total price came as a bargain! Also, very vegan/vegetarian friendly.

Delicious food, lovely decor

I love this place. The dishes are so rich and flavorful. You鈥檒l be tempted to eat the bread they bring you but don鈥檛 do it. It鈥檚 so much and you won鈥檛 have room for all the other delicious food (and pita bread). I鈥檝e been twice and my meat-eating friends were just as satisfied as I was.

Pros: Vegan options, Delicious hummus!

Cons: Bread basket before the meal is too much, Hard to get a table - make a reservation

Friendly, tasty and lots of options

We had a very tasty family meal here with our non vegan son - menu is approx half vegetarian, quarter vegan and quarter meat. Salads and hummus lovely. Roast vegetables were gorgeous. Very good use of spices and herbs. Flavours made a real change from the other food we鈥檇 had in Portugal. Inexpensive compared to the other places we ate at (bill for the three of us came to about 鈧50 including two cocktails). Friendly service. Quite small - we got a walk on but were there quite early. Highly recommended.

Nice veggie friendly place

Lovely atmosphere and good foods.
The prices are reasonable, although the hummus plate is a bit pricey compared to the rest (around 7鈧).
The lady was super helpful and knew what was vegan or could be made vegan.
The falafels were okay but not incredibly tasty.
The cauliflower was extremely delicious, covered in tahin (sesame paste) !
Overall a very good experience.

Pros: loads of sesame paste, reasonable prices
