Absolute perfection - Edit

Large, amazing quality portions and great service. Lovely interior with possibly the best food I have ever tasted at a fair price. A pleasure to experience! I was left almost speechless. Plenty of changing options, healthy and flavoursome.

Delicious - Edit

One of the best vegan restaurants we've been to and we've tried many over the years.
I really enjoyed eating the Ultimate Burger. The onion ring was an interesting addition. My partner had a wrap. It was beautifully presented and he said it was very tasty.
The cake was superb. Amazing texture for a vegan cake.
If I could give 6* I would have... .

Banging Food - Edit

We were visiting Cardiff and our non-vegan friends took us here as there lived nearby. The food was fantastic, we had the trio of starters, all excellent and for mains we had Tofish & Chips and the Chilli Dog. That sausage in the Chilli Dog was the best I've eaten, the garlic mayo was sublime and the Tofish had seaweed inside and was delicious. Even our non-vegan friends loved their burgers and this was their first vegan meal. I wish this was in Manchester and comes highly recommended

Pros: All Vegan, amazing food, reasonably priced, excell

Cons: None!

Pretty Darn Good - Edit

Visited here with my non vegan/veggie friends. She had the seitan burger with sweet potato fries & I had the other one..beetroot & something with triple cooked chips. Both were excellent. Really fresh, big portions and super tasty. One thing I would nitpick on would be mine could probably have been a bit hotter. It was verging more on warm..but it didn’t matter as we ate so fast due to it being so nice! My carnist friend declared it the best (non meat) burger she’s ever had..success!
Pudding menu was on the limited side but we had the chocolate orange cheesecake which had a great, smooth texture & the beetroot & apple cake which was super light & sweet & moist.
The only other negative thing to say is the coffee/hot chocolate cups are pretty tiny..definitely could do with being bigger. The cafe itself though is really well presented with plenty of seating and friendly enough staff. A few other reviews mention it being pricey but we didn’t agree. £10.50 for a burger & chips (of high standard..not just fast food/takeaway style) is very reasonable. You’d easily pay the same for the equivalent in a “normal” pub!

Pros: Portion size, Fresh, Cucumber water for the table 💚

Cons: Little way out of the centre, Small coffee cups

wonderful food, but quite pricey - Edit

We came to Anna Loka in a bit of a hurry, which was a shame as we would have liked the chance to try a bit more! My husband is not vegan, so I am always a bit nervous when we go to a completely vegan place. However, I needn’t have worried.

The food was delicious (I had a curry and he had a burger), but both of his initial choices had run out which was unfortunate. It was only 6:30pm, so we wouldn’t have expected them to have sold out of so much of the menu. Still, what we had was delicious and we also had a couple of milkshakes. My husband was pleased to have a protein one as he had been training and was looking to up the calories of his meal.

The food was amazing, but it was the most expensive meal we had in our 4 days in Cardiff which we were surprised by. Admittedly, this was probably because of the shakes we had (they were £6 each), but in the middle of the student area, a long way from the centre of town, it seemed a bit much.

Pros: delicious food, friendly staff

Cons: had run out of a lot of the menu, seemed expensive.

Could not love this place more! Bring your Appetite! - Edit

From the ambience and the phenomenally friendly staff to the delicious range of menu options there isn’t a thing I don’t love about Anna Loka. We started with smoothies (I’m a big fan of the “Berries and C”) then moved on to the Tofish and Chips - a vegan twist on traditional fish and chips. It was a generous portion but it didn’t stop us from trying the chocolate and salted caramel cake for dessert. So glad we opted for dessert - it was fabulous; the kind of vegan cake that has you wondering how the heck they’ve made it. Thanks to the entire Anna Loka team for their attentive and friendly service!

Fab Night - Edit

Hubby & I had a lovely relaxed evening here .
Music & atmosphere were the best.

I chose to have the Rodeo Burger with chips & Hubby had the curry.
I couldn't finish mine as it was a large burger but hubby happily finished it off.
I LOVED the spiced cauliflower that accompanied his curry.

We both had dessert Salted caramel cake & an Apple, Beetroot & ginger cake, both were absolutely stunning.
We then chose a Raw Chocolate Hazelnut cake to take home also.

We will definitely be going back.
Thank you to all the friendly staff 😃

Great food, nice atmosphere - Edit

We really enjoyed our lunch at the Anna Loka. The smoothies were very tasty and nutritious, and the aubergine fillet was great. We'd recommend this place!

Perfect vegan cafe - Edit

Anna Loka's philosophy, vibe and delicious food makes this place my favourite restaurant in Cardiff. It's amazing being able to eat 100% of the options on the menu...the only negative is that it's impossible to eat all of them at once! Perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I took my (non-vegan) mum here today and she said it's the best vegan food she has ever tried- I'll look forward to my next visit and so does my mum!

birthday meal - Edit

I went to Anna Loka with a few others for a friend's birthday meal.

I had made a cake and the staff offered to bring it out after we finished the meal.

There was a bit of a wait for the food (as there always is it seems) and despite ordering at least 24 hours in advance, some of the dishes weren't available (this is also something that has happened every time I've been), which was disappointing. The food, however, was extremely tasty, couldn't fault it.

We had to ask for the plates to be cleared (after a bit of a wait) and for the cake to be brought out, but the staff did put a load of candles on and lit them too, which I thought was a nice touch.

It's a shame about the above problems and the expensive price tags - £10.50 for a burger and an extra £2.00 if you have to have gluten free, minimum £3.95 for a juice! We would love to be regular customers as local vegans, but just can't afford it and get very frustrated by the long waiting times and the fact that there never appears to be enough food in stock, usually the items that we want to order too.

Pros: very tasty food, friendly staff, all vegan

Cons: very long wait times for food & drink, expensive, they always run out of food items

17/12/16 & 18/12/16 - Edit

We were in Cardiff for the weekend and initially planned to only visit once (our first time) on 17/12/16 but it was so good we came back on 18/12/16 to try the Sunday roast, which was much needed and was fantastic! Very friendly service on both days from all staff. Thoroughly recommended, our new favourite place to eat in Cardiff, it's easy to see why it's so highly rated on Happy Cow. We can't wait to go back!

If you're a vegan, and you're in Cardiff, you MUST come here! Thank me later...

go to vegan place - Edit

Been many times to this place and will keep going back. Great variety to the menu and all the food is tasty and filling. The decoration is so cool and quirky and is fitting of a vegan premises. The owner Adam is really friendly and always so welcoming. I recommend the burgers and one of their ice block dessert things.
