phenomenal! - Edit

It is really phenomenal eating here.
They even have a vegan dessert and everything is listed vegan.
If you wish to have something you are able to just ask for it and they will prepare it.
It is my go-to now :)
you are able to sit on the floor and dine on wonderful sheets

Pros: MANY vegan options, vegan dessert, wondeful atmosphere

Cons: a little bit pricey

Teuer mit kleinen Portionen - Edit

Nette Atmosphäre, man sitzt auf dem Boden und isst mit den Händen.
Sehr leckeres eritreisches Essen, aber die Portionen waren nicht mal annähernd groß genug für uns (kleine Frau großer Mann), so dass wir von einer Vorspeisenplatte Hauptgericht (jeweils für 2 gedacht) immer noch nicht satt waren.
Billig ists hier nicht, also war das echt ne Frechheit.

Pros: Sehr lecker, Nette Mitarbeiter

Cons: Teuer --> schlechtes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, Viel zu kleine Portionen

Delicious food, great vegan selection - Edit

I am bias, because I love Eritrean food, so I have to give this restaurant a big thumbs up! The food was very yummy, prices decent (about EUR 7.50 for a main and 2.50-3 for dessert), and therefore the sizes also perfect to satisfy you without feeling stuffed. Super friendly staff and very accommodating for vegans. Also a very nice atmosphere.

Pros: yummy, normal sizes, atmosphere

Cons: Meat served

Good place for a late-night dinner - Edit

The baobab serves warm food until 11 pm, good to know for a vegetarian in Darmstadt.

The menue is not very extensive, the four vegetarian main dishes are vegan. We had a plate of mixed starters (hummus and eggplant puree) which I found a bit bland and disappointing. The main dishes are delicious. They are served with a soft, pancake-like bread that has a very nice taste and consistency (you can order additional bread if you like). It's definitely not haute cuisine, but since it's not expensive, I'd still consider it a good option.

The restaurant calles itself "Erlebnisbar" (Erlebnis means adventure or experience) which refers to the furnishing. There are different kinds of tables: regular ones, one where you sit on the ground on cushions and a hut, which is basically a table with a roof. It's all kept in an adapted rural african style. There is no bad design, it's a nice mix of modernism and cosiness. However, of course it's hardcore exoticism. I guess that comes with the adventure-aspect.
There is no cutlery, you eat with your hands, which works fine due to the soft bread. But after your meal, they place a big plastic box with tissues on your table, which to us felt like you had to clean yourself up after your ethnic adventure. I think a simple napkin would have sufficed.

The staff was very friendly, the music at our last visit was Jefferson Airplane.

I have the impression that the restaurant is well-liked by the people of Darmstadt and I can imagine it being fun for children to eat there.

Pros: food is tasty and inexpensive, friendly service, nice atmosphere

Cons: trying a bit hard to look exotic, all dishes are rather simple

Tasty eritrean food! - Edit

When you live in Darmstadt, unfortunately there are not many vegetarian restaurants with a big menu. But fortunately there is Baobab. Half of the menu consists of vegetarian food(maybe even vegan). You can also order a mix of all vegetarian options. The food is really tasty and the atmosphere is nice.
