Vegan place that doesn't love cats.

T├╝rkiye=Holy cats, right? Well, I got a big surprise in this place. THE ONLY RESTAURANT IN TURKEY (ALSO VEGAN) THAT HAS NO food or water or beds outside for street cats and the worst: every cat that comes in is thrown out running. For that reason, I put one star. The food was average, the service could be better. Angry faces all the time.

Mediocre food but nice service

We came to yuzu late, so we were warned that it closes in half an hour. So we ordered immediatly and were served the food within 15 minutes.

However, the food did not taste good. In fact, the Sushi tastes like the ready made sushi from the store.
We ordered a fried california roll. Sadly they came burned, a fact which was never brought up.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Taste of the food, Sometimes burned food, Too expensive

Must visit

A restaurant where you will leave happy. My favorites are, phak soup, gyoza, fried rice and buns with meatball. I can say that I ate better vegan sushi than the sushi here.

Pros: Location

Cons: Expensive, Sushi

High level service and tasteԺɴŞĆ

To find vegan sushi is always a tough task, so IÔÇÖm really glad to find such place in Istanbul ­čÖĆ­čĆ╗
If u here for the first time I highly recommend you to order a set (one or both) to try all kinds of sushi and define your favs­čŹú
Stuff here is friendly and unobtrusive - appearing only when u need them­čĺÖ
And the place itself is cozy and niceԜǴŞĆ

Pros: All vegan, Service, Atmosphere

Lovely people, not the best sushi

Really lovely people but I was a bit disappointed by the sushi. The meaty pastes, substitutes werenÔÇÖt great but the makis were good. A cool place, probably more of a summer place

Okish Fried Roll - Dull Maki

We liked the fried roll, but the Makis we had where not really tasty. The tofu and mango were dull only the bell pepper had taste. In addition, it took very long until we got our sushi.

Average food, above average waiting time...

We waited for about an hour while everyone around us got their food. They did not say anything about it nor appologized for it (except when they finally brought the food). We then only had half an hour to actually eat, as they were closing afterwards. The sushi was really average, I could not see why it is called a "fusion kitchen". I had way better vegan sushi at all-you-can-eat reataurants ...

Unfortunately not good

The food was not so good unfortunately. The sushi was below what one would expect (raw tofu in ordinary rice for example). The curry was better, but the soy balls in the sauce were not tasteful, that would not convince a meat eater at all (that's a shared objective I hope)

It was so good we went there 2 days in a row out of our 3 days in Istanbul

The fried sushi is really nice (even through I donÔÇśt like sushi that much, we only went there because my girlfriend loves sushi)­čśé
The tempeh one was our favourite

Trendy Veggie Sushi

We really liked this place. We came for lunch and we were the only people there. The space is well designed and they sell some vegan products. We had the two sushi menus. They were presented beautifully and a nice variety of flavors.

It's alright for a fancy date

If you know how to cook you will be bored here. But if you don't you will have great time. I guess the most " worth the try " dish is kumo donburi. The portion is big and filling. And I like the beets in it. Ah, actually their spring rolls are really good. The rest is kind of bland and just lazy-made recipe.

Pros: Very friendly staff, Nice garden area

Cons: Expensive, Dangerous staircase to the toilet
