We had the vegan special platter for 2. Best Eritrean food I’ve had in London! Very friendly staff and good atmosphere. Will definitely come again.

Tasty, but not sure about ingredients

We ordered the vegan mixed platter for two with rice. I can’t eat mushrooms, so we asked for that to be separated, and the waiter said they could easily leave it off.
We waited a long time for the food, and when it came there were clearly mushrooms. There was also a strange meatball/falafel dish. I asked the waiter if it was meat I was so unsure, he reassured me that it was not, but couldn’t precisely say what it was. It looked like a nearby table had a similar experience.

Despite all of the above the food was very tasty. The dahls and spinach dishes were particularly nice.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Slow, Unsure of ingredients, Fairly expensive

Beautiful food, wonderful people!

The vegan platters have so many different dishes included and are all delicious with the Injera. The place has a lovely atmosphere and the team there are very kind.

Pros: Lots of Vegan Dishes, Good prices!, Can bring your non vegan friends

High quality food.

Though this isn't a vegan restaurant, what you get here that you don't from your fast food vegan diner is food with vitamins. Wholefood traditional cooking.

Lentils, beans, greens and ancient grains.

The vegan sharing platter is the perfect wholefood gluten free meal.

Pros: Amazing vegan options, Really pleasant owner

Cons: They do serve some meat

Tryin' Eritrean

This is pretty close to the Adulis in Oval (same people, slightly different menu, very different feel).

Here there's a dedicated vegan section. It's good and an interesting experience if you've not had Ethiopian or Eritrean food before. Go for the mixed thingy with injera (a spongy sourdough risen flat-bread). It's much more filling than it looks.

This branch of Adulis is much smaller than its counterpart in Oval and much less swanky. The food's just as good, although I'd say it was slightly on the expensive side.

Pros: Tasty, interesting food

Cons: A tad expensive
