Much more than a cafe

Tight Aggressive is not only a cafe, but at the same time, they have best vegan burgers in the city. It's not pricey, is spicy and very delicious. No worries, portions are big.

The place is friendly. We said hallo, and asked for some burgers after a long day, even though they were about to close T.A. They prepered a small desk on the street and we enjoyed our perfect meal.

Pros: flexible staff, big portions, excellent food

Awesome vegan burgers

It's a small place, right next to another larger vegan cafe, but it serves more fast-food style compared to most of the typical veg. places here.

The vegan burgers are fantastic. There are a few different options, I think like curry, mushroom etc. and they're served with a side of chips.

What makes them special though is the generous portion size, the quality of the burgers themselves, and the garnishings of gherkin, fresh tomato, lettuce, veganaise etc. Delicious.

Prices are normal for the area.

Pros: Very delicious burgers, In an area with a lot of other veg. options

the best western vegan food in istanbul

some items are known for vegans all around the world and some are just created by tight aggressive community members; but be sure that all of them tasty and if you are after western style vegan food such as burgers and wraps; that is the best place for it in istanbul. after savoury options, i was also amazed that they have a cashew dessert which tastes almost same with magnum ice-cream with almond.

Amazing vegan food, not to be missed

I have tried this restaurant a few times since it opened just last month, and every time has been wonderful. The menu has a pretty good variety of options and is generally more western-style foods like burgers and fries with good portions. My favourite so far is the curry burger. Everything is homemade, and I definitely recommend trying an apple cinnamon cookie. Not to mention the prices are super affordable! The guys who run it are young and hardworking, active members in the creative community, and speak very good English. Not a place to miss if you are a vegan in Istanbul! This one is a game changer for the city's vegan options.

Pros: Delicious, more western-style VEGAN food, Welcoming staff, community atmosphere, Very affordable
