Their Mexican street corn is a MUST. Nachos are amazing too but a little spicy for me. Still highly recommend!

Words cannot describe how delicious their food is! Everything about this place is 5 stars - food, ambience, location, staff... I’m tempted to say this is number one, favorite restaurant ever. Would absolutely fly to NYC to eat their churros as soon as I can 💚

Amazing Food - Excellent Service

The restaurant has a great atmosphere. I think it is great for a drink with friends/colleagues or a date night.

The food was amazing. The nachos were very large. The chorizo burrito was not too spicy and well balanced. The chorizos were very soft and warm, and the elotes (corn) were especially great.

The prices were pretty good for New York.

Pros: Great portions, Priced Well, Great for Non-Vegans

Absolutely amazing vegan Mexican restaurant! The dishes are delicious and unique. Vegan enchiladas were great, as was the Mexican corn side. The drinks are well thought out and tasty. 100% will go back.

Better than Mexico City’s vegan places

As a resident of Mexico City, I have to say that this place is better than all of the vegan restaurants over there, at least the ones listed in this app as of December 2018 -yes, I’ve gone to all of them.
I deducted one star because the service was incredibly slow. I had dinner on a Thursday between 10:00 and 11:30 (should have been 11:00 with a more decent service). Staff were friendly, nevertheless

Pros: Many options , Delicious, Open til late!

Cons: Slow service

Last minute on a Friday night and they made my day.

This is a busy and slightly up scale establishment with out the fancy pricing. The staff was attentive and very helpful. Without reservations, we were politely asked if we were not going to be too long. I only wanted the nachos and my friend wanted a burrito. We both don't drink, so they sat us knowing that we won't be long. I got the mock fish tacos also at the last minute and they were very nicely done. But the star of the show was definitely the nachos. Just the right amount of spicy and I totally enjoyed it.

Pros: Lots to choose from

Cons: Nothing

Another terrific branch of Jajaja!

Visited this spacious and comfortable Jajaja restaurant in the West Village on Thanksgiving and, gee, was I very thankful! The latest addition to the group, this spot has all the same great Mexican dishes as the downtown original. I also had a lovely, organic rose wine. The staff were super helpful and cheery (even though working on a holiday).

Pros: Great new location , Excellent 100% vegan , Moderately priced

Loved our lunch here. The staff is friendly and the decor is cool, even liked the bathroom! We had the nachos, elote, side of rice, chorizo burrito, and barbacoa tacos. The barbacoa tacos were bland for my taste, but everything else was so delicious! For dessert, we had the flan and coconut cake, also very good. Lemonade was so tasty too. Looking forward to coming back here.

Great vegan Mexican food

The food is really nice and a great vegan take on Mexican food.
The nachos were delicious and big! Lots of choices so it was hard to decide, but that's a good problem to have.

Great dinner spot

The environment in this place is awesome. I’ve had a couple dishes that I didn’t enjoy here but the burrito and tacos are always delicious! Brunch here is really good as well! It’s a pretty small spot so I wouldn’t go with a huge group but definitely good for small groups or couples.

Great food, friendly staff

The food here is excellent, much like their place in Chinatown. This place is roomier and cozier than the Chinatown place, however, so it might be more suited for a party. On the other hand, the Chinatown Jajaja has takeout, and this doesn't. You can have a small bite of a pair of tacos for just 8 bucks here, or spend a bit more for a full meal.

Pros: Great tasting food , Healthy vegan options, friendly service, nice atmosphere

Fun atmosphere, try the nachos!

The ambience and decor are very trendy and fun. Good music and great service. Enrique is one of the waiters and he was very friendly and helpful. Jajaja’s seitan chorizo is delicious - I recommend the nachos with chorizo and the chorizo tacos! The tacos all come in pairs for $8.

Pros: Nice decor and music , Great waitstaff, Chorizo
