Love love Baku's! They know what vegan is, and they will tell you what's vegan. I've had their jasmine (safron?) yellow rice with black-eyed peas and vegetables dish... sooo good. The fried plantains are really good too, even though I'm not much of a plantains gal. Only downside is that I have a hard time catching them open -- they have "normal" business hours, not a late night place. Staff is sooo super friendly and cute. A family runs it including the kids.

Pros: MAzing, super friendly
Cons: hours, small (one loud person ruins whole place

This restaurant is a hole in the wall. I went here on a date, and we were the only customers for the 1 1/2 we were there. The meal was delicious, and the woman who owns the restaurant is very respectful of vegans. She promised me that vegan and non-vegan food never touch each other when they cook. The plantains are great. The menu is small, so I won't eat here all the time.

Baku is a welcomed surprise. From the moment you walk in the counter person welcomes you as if you were coming into their home. Once you taste the food, you then see why--it gives you that homecooked feeling. Sure there are many non-veg items, perhaps more than half the menu, but if you stick to the rice, black-eyed peas, and greens, you will leave incredibly satiated.

Pros: Intriguing flavors and spices, VERY nice & patient people, Reasonably priced
Cons: Sometimes they run out of items, Sometimes certain items taste dry
