Bad coffee and average food - Edit

Ordered a soy cappuccino which was nothing like a cappuccino, super watery and horrible, especially for 45k! However, the iced coffee we got was quite good. Also had the vegan omelete which is tofu scramble with bread and salad. The scramble was very bland, the tomatoes in the salad were almost rotting, but the bread was good. Probably wouldn't go back, the other stuff on the menu might be better...

Pros: Fully vegan

Cons: Bad coffee

Vegan haven in Hanoi - Edit

Came here on my first night in Hanoi, and was so lovely to walk into a 100% vegan place.

My dad (who is an omni) had the sweet potato and chickpea burger and loved it. I has the mushroom and tofu clay pot, which was really lovely, awesome mushroomy flavour.

The juice with turmeric was nice, slightly too strong of a turmeric flavour for me personally, and it was served warm (just a heads up).

And if you can't find it, look up for the signs, and then look for the group of men sitting in the entry way (they happily move for you to walk past).

Lovely decor here. Overall more expensive than other options in Hanoi but still cheaper than what you'd pay in western countries!

Wierd place - Edit

Ordered the "bean-me-up", however, no black beans were present at the dish. When I asked, I was told they ran out of beans and replaced with sunflower seeds without asking me 😐 Waiter did not know English, so I just kept the dish which turned out to be a small salad. Very expensive for what you get.. smoothie was ok. Burger was good but small.

Pros: fully vegan place, no oil, no added sugar and salt :)

Cons: expensive, small dishes for westerenrs

Amazing Gnocchi, Cute spot! - Edit

Here right now, on the second level of a building and when it’s warm you could sit on the balcony and watch the people on the street while you eat. Inside I cute too, very chill. Free wifi.
Had a masala chai, incredibly delicious Gnocchi and the banana peanut butter ‘cheesecake’.
Everything was amazing, besides the cake, it tasted good but was still frozen.
Definitely would come back.

Really tried but really dissapointed - Edit

Got here three times within 10 days because of the raving reviews. Either I got really unlucky every time or it’s really just not to my taste...
Burgers ok, fries coldish and lacking crunch
Lasagna ok’ish, but too sweet to my taste and lacking texture
Lentil stew/clay pot ok-good
Pesto pizza was barely eatable, no taste of pesto but rather sweet soy sauce.

On the side: masala chai and the juices are really tasty.

Pros: great tea and juices, good desserts

Cons: too expensive for the quality it offers, needs some fine-tuning

One of the best - Edit

I tested 4 different main dishes and their delicious choco banana cake. Its fine, fresh, maybe a little expensive but I think its worth to taste.
Its not traditionnal vietnamese food but its one the rare restaurant to offer something else than tofu for your proteins.
The Massala Chai is also very very nice !

Pros: Very fine and fresh products, Original recipes, Cosy place

Not much the get excited about - Edit

Got really excited when I read the reviews from this place and also when we got there - it's a really cute place. We went for dinner and had the mushroom tofu burger and spinach pasta. The burger patty just tasted eggy and was really bland, and was more like a mini-burger with five cold potato chips. The pasta lacked flavour (and salt) and was just oily. The waiter also seemed to forget many people's drink orders, including ours. Because of this experience I would not recommend this place. If you do decide to come here I would try a smoothie or maybe a dessert.

Pros: All vegan, Cozy

Cons: Small portions, Bland and oily food

Yaaaaaaassss kween - Edit

This place is the cutest, and the food is bloody excellent! Plus the severs are also very cute! We ordered the Energy Buster smoothie - dear lord it is the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth. We also got the braised tofu hot pot 🤤 and the spinach pasta. Both amazing, and whilst we were on a winning streak we got the banana peanut butter cheese cake, and it was also tops. A definite must visit! You can sit on their cute balcony and eat delicious food as the streets of Hanoi pass by.

Just get around it already!

Pros: delicious, dessert, cute views

One of My Hanoi Favorites - Edit

Jalus is one of my favorite restaurants in Hanoi. It serves great food, has a great little seating area with some outdoor balcony seating, and is centrally located.

The vegan omelette was fantastic with a gummy texture I've never seen replicated anywhere else. It was hands down my favorite of the dishes I tried. The braised tofu and mushroom in clay pot was also pretty fantastic with great flavors and a phenomenal tofu. The bean me up bowl was the only dish I was a bit disappointed with, despite some recommendations in other reviews. The menu specifically points out the benefits of amaranth but the final dish includes maybe 2 tablespoons of it. I also found the portion of beans to be quite minimal compared to the other dishes, mostly containing spinach and basil which was fresh, but kind of boring as the major part of this dish. The only seasoning was a balsamic vinegar-type reduction which didn't quite fit the palate I was looking for- full disclosure that I am generally not crazy about sweet-tasting entrees. I wish the dressing had been a tahini or something different.

The juice I had; containing ginger, turmeric, pineapple, and other fruits, was incredible. I'm sure I'll be back to try some other meals soon!

Tasty food - Edit

I had the pesto pizza which was delicious and a slice of chocolate cake which was also good but a lot for one person. It would have been better shared. A few if the menu items were not available and it was not an extensive menu to begin with.

Pros: Delicious food, Decor

Cons: Service was very slow, even to be seated with menu

Just Wonderful! - Edit

Amazing food. Simply amazing. I was only in Hanoi a short while and I came here twice because the food was so good and nowhere else really compared. Order the pizza, the platter or the amazing chocolate cake. Or anything. All of it is amazing.

Pros: 100% vegan, 100% delicious

Tastes like home - Edit

I really like this place! The people who work there are super friendly and the food is just delicious, for me it tastes like home! I had the vegan Omelette, which is actually more like scrambled eggs, but non the less really yummy and the bread that comes with it is great! It is healthy but very flavourful! Highly recommend! It is definitely a place where you can eat every day without feeling bad about it :)

Food and service were not very good - Edit

I ordered the potato curry and my girlfriend the pesto pizza, and we ordered the spring rolls on the side. They said many entrees and ingredients (i.e., the vermicelli in the spring rolls) were missing in the kitchen.

The spring rolls arrived first and were good, but they were missing the vermicelli. Then my curry arrived and I had the time to completely finish my meal before the pizza came a good 20 minutes later. The curry was okay but not exceptional - my girlfriend ate some of it while waiting for her pizza. We asked the staff what was going on with the pizza and they said they were sorry about the delay so they offered us a free juice, which was nice of them! We had the time to receive our juice and drink it all before the pizza finally came... and it unfortunately did not taste good, we could not finish it. We told the staff and they offered to take off the pizza from the bill and said they were sorry.

Overall not so good experience in Hanoi!

Pros: The pineapple juice was very good

Cons: They were missing many ingredients on the menu, Difference of 20 minutes between the two meals , The pesto pizza did not taste good

Delicious - we'll be back! - Edit

My girlfriend and I ate at Jalus twice. The first time we had the gnocchi and a potato curry. The gnocchi was especially delicious - such wonderful flavours and one I am sure to order again at some point! The curry was rather sweet for our taste, but still very hearty and yum. The next time we got one of the platters, it was good value for the amount of food we got. The dips were especially nice. And spring rolls were delicious! There's a nice drinks selection and the waiter is very friendly and smiley.
Word of advice: buy the chocolate mousse!

Pros: Delicious food, Perfect location, Nice vibes

Cons: Slightly expensive for Hanoi standards

Fantastic Vegan Restaurant and Cafe! - Edit

Love this place so much we came back twice! The mushroom clay pot is delicious and the energy buster smoothie is sooo yum! The staff are super friendly and the menu is very clear. It is more expensive than the local street food but that is so understandable and I would happily pay their prices for the food and drinks. Downside is that there are mainly western style meal options as opposed to Vietnamese, but we didn’t mind this as we have eaten plenty of Vietnamese! There is also a small balcony overlooking the street which is nice for a drink!

Pros: everything is vegan, food is tasty , staff are great

Cons: mainly western food

veganvirtues 07 Dec 2017 - Jalus caters more western style, with some Vietnamese dishes starfruit salad, banh chuoi, banh xeo. There are other places that caters Vietnamese style Loving Huts.

Terrible service - Edit

Lunchtime and they had run out of about 4 dishes that I wanted, so I ordered spinach pasta. After about 20 minutes the waiter comes back to tell me they had run out of that too. I didnt mind too much and I ordered the vegan omelette, and was excited to try it. When my food comes out, it was the pasta, and the waiter said turns out the chef could make it. It was pretty average, 90% capsicum and the smallest amount of spinach. Tiny portion too. Annoyed because I was there for a while and I had gotten excited to try the omelette, and was instead served something really average. Im sure the other dishes are nice, but I wont be going back to find out.

All vegan menu so you dont have to worry about ingredients - choose at will. Entrance looks a bit dodgy going through into a building then upstairs but it is fine. Go there, pick amazing food and relax

modern restaurant and very tasty - Edit

You reach the restaurant, which is on the second floor, over a narrow house entrance. The entrance is easy to overlook. You should pay attention to the small sign with the logo, which is not at eye level. the dining room is relatively small but adequate for about 15 people. There is also a small balcony from which you can observe the hustle and bustle on the streets. The selection of food is good but not too extensive. nevertheless everyone should come here to his taste. there are, for example, spring rolls, pizza, omlette (all vegan). The prices are a little bit higher but still reasonable. I liked it there very much. the employees are friendly and attentive. something unusual is unfortunately the toilet, which is located on the first floor behind a grid. definitely uncomfortable, but probably because of the architecture is it not to changeable. but the restaurant is recommended.
