Absolutely incredible kebabs - Edit

The doner kebab here is incredible, so much so, I had it twice in one day the first time I had it. Mainly because I was hungover, but it turned out to be perfect hangover food.

So tasty. The couscous and doner boxes are great too!

Am yet to try the pizza and baklava though, but judging by their other offerings I'm sure they're awesome.

Updated from previous review on 2017-11-07

Pros: Reasonably priced for the amount of food you get, Super tasty

Cons: Hard to order in their tiny space sometimes, Boxpark can be crazy busy and unpleasant

Good stuff - Edit

So this place has a short menu offering a sietan doner kebab wrapped with salad and humous etc or a box with seitan bits, chips, salad and sauces or a salad pizza they call a Turkish pizza. All three are pretty good value, though I think the doner wrap comes out on top. Despite the simple menu its not super quick service but they are friendly and the price is ok given where it is. Where it is being the main downside to the joint! I recommend grabbing your food and escaping the hipster hell hole that is the box park, head across Bethnal Green Road and up Chance St till you come to the fine old band stand in the middle of Arnold Circus its a 5 minute walk which will bring you to a historic bit of London thats relatively peaceful and picturesque. Eat your tasty treats here and your can savour their flavour without the din and chagrin of the trendy masses.

Pros: Tasty fresh food, moderately priced, decent portions

Cons: Rather sugary sauces., Box park is hellish when busy

heaven in a wrap - Edit

This kebab is delicious! The meat is made from. Soya apparently but it's the best meat substitute I've ever tasted! Portions are hummungous and very filling. Location is great in the funky box park and well worth a visit

What The Pitta? Rules...Hard - Edit

They even make the bread on the spot. It just adds to the multitude of tasty fillings and sauces. The only negative element of my Doner experience was that after saving half of my kebab (they are a generous size) and nursing it around Shoreditch during a social outing (which involved drinking), I lost it/someone stole my half eaten kebab... I have since, been pining for it as I feel I was never fully able to appreciate it in its entirety and at a time when it was most needed (breakfast this morning). And the first half was amazing....and now I'm stuck out in Surrey and can't get one. The pain is real.

Great customer service but food wasn't for me. - Edit

The hospitality was great but unfortunately I found my order of vegan doner quiet bland, the sauces lacked flavour and the soy meat didn't have much taste, the salad, wrap and size of the portion were however fresh and decent value. Perhaps I caught them on a bad day. I also think it was tainted by the delicious vegan doner I had in Ealing earlier in the week which was amazing.

Pros: Portion size, Customer service, Freshness

Cons: Soy meat taste, Backlava, Sauce flavour

Hit the spot - Edit

Up and running in boxpark on the top floor. Even though it was a busy day/time the service was prompt and the blokes running it were friendly. Food was good and the mock doner was cooked really well and was juicy (I have others that have been dry). Definitely will be back and it's great to have the chance to eat a kebab as a vegan!

Best Vegan Doner - Edit

Travel into Brick Lane every day from Brighton, and found these guys in Shoreditch about a year ago. A regular stop off point at least once a week, often twice! Really upset when they closed down. Very very happy now they are opening up again in the Boxpark. Look forward to the opening on June 1st

SO yum - Edit

Love this place. They roll out the wrap fresh and fill it with delicious ingredients. Normally I'm not a massive fake meat fan but this one so tasty. It's handily placed on the pavement so you can swing by super easily on the way to somewhere or you can sit in the food courtyard. Recommend to anyone!

Wow! - Edit

This place is amazing! I'm so glad I came here when visiting London this weekend. My husband and I were contemplating coming back for another delicious doner the next day! I can't fault a thing. The service was great, very friendly. The food was cooked fresh in front of us (even the wrap itself!) and it was soooooo tasty. Literally the best thing I've ever eaten when out and about, and I've eaten in a lot of veggie restaurants. I will definitely be coming back here.

Pros: Delicious, all fresh ingredients , great service
