I craved soul food for so many years but I became vegan about 5 years ago. I was pleasantly surprised to find this place. I am from Hawaiʻi but I love soul food. Itʻs like Hawaiian food! I had the collard greens black eyed peas...More

Our family group went here for dinner recently because one of our sons had highly recommended the restaurant.. Before we even saw the menu, three things bothered me: one was the very loud music, which meant that conversations had to be carried out by shouting,...More

I've tried Souley Vegan so many times over five years. It just isn't my magic. And that's sad. I want to support and like this restaurant, but it's the worst of vegan and the worst of soul food. Yes, it's all fried. But what isn't...More

Souley Vegan was better than the last time I camento Oakland. I ordered the nachos, lemon cake and black bean burger with lettuce instead of buns. The burger patty was good, the lemon cake was delicious and the nachos were yummy as well. However, since...More

Vegan is not over salted, over greasy and a lot of gluten but Souley Vegan is. In addition for the quality of food that you get it is so over price. The interior spells D-I-V-E. It used to be a nice place but it has...More

I was excited to visit this vegan restaurant I had heard about, but my first impression was, "who turned out the lights?" We sat in a corner that literally had no light fixture anywhere near it. This led to problems like my husband mistaking the...More

When you arrive you order at the front, are asked to pre-pay the tip, and sit with a number and wait for them to deliver food. Very chaotic and the servers were very confused. Multiple servers came by asking what we were missing as our...More

Such good food I had the macaroni and cheese with yams and lentils. The hands were so tasty and the fact that they melted in my mouth melted my heart. I would recommend this to even non-vegetarian friends

amazing Vegan food for those who miss meat!!
Souly vegan is an amazing restaurant with an amazing story! You MUST go to there web sight & check them out. Great collard greens, amazing no meat chicken & free oranges wail you wait. I am a vegetarian who used to love a good meaty sandwich & this place makes me forget all about my old habits. The first time I eat the chicken sandwich I knew going vegetarian wasn’t going to be as hard as I thought, as long as souly vegan is open!!!
