Vegan crossiants! - Edit

Came here for breakfast and got a vegan croissant made up with salad and tempeh inside. It was really good, but there are a lot of better vegan restaurants nearby so we never came back to try anything else from the lunch menu.

Always a good idea - Edit

It was the first vegan restaurant I've tried, and one of my go-to places ever since.
I've been there several times, so I can tell that the quality of the foods have been developing.
Any choice you make, you're gonna love it! The burgers, salads, vegan cheese, tofu, cakes.. everything is pretty good.
It's like a cafeteria, you have to stand in the queue than choose.
Very nice staff (with handsome guys haha) and a comfortable place.

Pros: Good location, Vide selection of delicious food

I liked it a lot - Edit

Vega city is a nice restaurant, I ate an Indian dish and it was delicious. It's also very cheap, so I recommend it. The staff was very nice and patient with me while I was figuring out what to order.

Healthy, affordable, refreshing - Edit

Staff speak English and are friendly; delicious hearty smoothies for roughly $1, pleasant environment. We enjoyed the arugula salad, red lentil stew, pita, and beetroot smoothie!

All vegan - Edit

I always get exicted when going to a place all vegan.
But sometimes the quality just does'nt live up the expectations I have.
My boyfriend had a burger, and was quite dissapointed.
My friends and I had the carbonara and some deepfried vegetables. Both kinda tasteless.
I hope to go back again and find the food more flavourfull.

Pros: All vegan , Fair price, Friendly staff

Cons: Looks better than it tastes

Loads of choice - Edit

Loads of savoury and sweet food to choose from. You pay by the weight, really reasonably priced. Only con is it would be nice to have the option to heat up some of the savoury foods

very satisfied - Edit

I've been three times there, I had always a warm meal and a dessert. Every time it was very tasty! The employees are friendly and they explain (also in English) about the food.

pre-made burgers in stale buns - Edit

Unfortunately disappointing ... The burgers looked really good on photos but we were surprised that they are served cold as they are pre-made waiting on shelves for order. So it's really a sandwich by my standards not a crunchy, hot, cheese melting burger. The buns were also rather hard so we ended up leaving the bread part. We also had chickpea curry which was ok but not fantastic. We won't be coming back for sure. Shame as this place has potential.

Cons: pre-made burgers, very crowded, stale buns

Really tasty food - Edit

We went to Budapest with school for one week. The first time we were there (with my friend who is also vegan), we were overwhelmed by the options. We ended up ordering too much for two people but we still somehow managed to finish. One reason for our success is the great taste of the food. We ate there the following 3 days, too. You can also take your food with you. It was so cheap that we always tipped nearly the same amount the food cost. I can highly recommend the Retroburger and the breaded vegetables (but everything else, too)

Pros: Great variety of cheap options, friendly staff (not annoyed by too many questions), delicious

Cons: Scary stairs made out of glass (but manageable), very full in the afternoon

Great place! - Edit

Went here not expecting much, but my expectations were blown away! Amazing food options and everything is so tasty! My biggest regret is being so full I couldn't try everything. Non vegan hubby loved it too.

Pros: so much variety , tasty food

Cons: can be a little crowded at peek times

not impresed - Edit

When I saw this place I made sure I went in to try it whilst in Budapest but now I feel I cheated myself out of a better experience.
It says vegan restaurant on the front but I was told some of the smoothies were unsuitable because they had milk in them so not sure why cows milk wouldn't be subbed in a vegan restaurant.
I went for the falafal plate and maybe that was a mistake because it wasn't even average. Not that cheap either.

I felt, on the whole they were trying to cash in on the clean eating/healthy food fad rather than striving to offer good quality vegan variety.

With hindsight I should have gone to one of the other great vegan places in town and that would be my advice to you also. However, I guess if you're stuck and hungry it's good to have somewhere as a choice.

Also, no dogs allowed - any vegan establishment worth its salt allows dogs and has snacks/water for then too.

Pros: clean, friendly staff

Cons: milk in some smoothies, no dogs allowed , food average

Lots to choose from! - Edit

I have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed by this place and not entirely sure how it worked. I think payment related to plate size or weight, but there were also burgers that, perhaps, were priced differently? (I should've used Google Translate, I think!) They had a really wide range of dishes, with lots of vegetables, which I was dying for! Be very careful carrying a full tray up those glass stairs to the mezzanine - I nearly took a tumble!

Updated from previous review on 2017-05-27

Pros: Big range and all vegan

Cons: Glass stairs are tricky!
