Felt like home

Really lovey restaurant with an “at home” vibe. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful with suggestions from the menu. But I would always recommend getting a little bit of everything if you’re in a big group. And some injera. Mm-mm.

East-African vegan cuisine done right

First time I tried east-African cuisine.
The restaurant owner was so friendless and humble. She helped me out a lot ans was extremely willing to make this acquaintance as pleasant as possible.
With great success!

We had a varied selection of their menu.
Super delicious and enough.

Great experience, will visit again!

Pros: Fully vegan menu, Service - Super friendly lady!!! , Cosy atmosphere

Cons: Location with lots of traffic

Beautiful Gem

Happened to pop in here for lunch, the food was amazing, the people in the cafe were lovely and the staff are genuinely some of the nicest people I’ve come across. A Deliveroo driver was waiting one of the women gave him an orange to eat, just because. She didn’t have to but she chose to. They heard it was my birthday in conversation and gave me a slice of cake! Very sweet people, couldn’t recommend coming here more.

Pros: Fully vegan menu, Lovely staff, Great atmosphere

Wholesome delicious food

Great for those who can’t decide and groups. We had sharing meal for three- 5 different options from the menu and big bowl of rice. I asked for the Eritrean sour dough bread as I prefer it over rice, the lovely lady said it’s on house and instead of few little ones we got the whole big plate:-) We had very nice spice tea with it and got dates to try as well.
The food was amazing, so bad it’s far away for me. But I’m sure I’ll made my way back

Pros: Good food, Many options , Price

Best vegan restaurant!

Finally some authentic, home cooked vegan food! Everything down to the drinks and. the desserts are home made and reasonably priced. The owner is the loveliest woman ever and makes the experience even nicer, not to mention how clean and cosy the restaurant is. The best dish is definitely the yellow curried chickpeas!

Pros: Hibiscus and the organic cocoa, Friendly staff , Great portions for the price

Cons: That more people don’t know about this hidden gem!

Highly, highly recommend!

Apart from the friendliest staff, this place boasts a great menu and a lovely atmosphere. It's mine and my husband's favourite restaurant in North London and we are lucky enough to live just around the corner. We own another local vegan restaurant on the same road but do not hesitate to talk about Keren View. Please, please, please support this amazing small mother-daughter run business. While you're there, you might be lucky enough to have a cup of tea with the owner and learn about Eritrean culture. Honestly, Keren View is North London's hidden gem.

I recommend their hummus and salad, injera (if you need another portion to finish your meal, I believe it is free), Brsa, Hamli, Atter, and my favourite, Ades. I must admit that these are the only dishes I have tried. For dessert, I recommend the dates with a cup of Camomile Tea or their sorbet. Sometimes they have different cakes available too which have always been delicious.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Pros: Excellent food., Great value., Friendly staff.

Super friendly restaurant doing all vegan Eritrean food

I visited Keren View twice in December 2019. The service is examplery, both times we got extra freebies in order to try somethin else we hadn't ordered! The food is classic Eritrean (like Ethiopean but with rice options!?) with Injera soda bread at its heart. Then you choose from a variety of veg, bean and lentil dishes. Beware some of the veg dishes are very spicey.

Pros: Very friendly service, Some rather spicey options, Inexpensive

Cons: Some rather spicey options

Cons: Not the quickest service

Keren View

We were heading to another restaurant when we saw "VEGAN" in the window of Keren View... So we decided to eat here instead. It was the best decision of our trip so far. The food was phenomenal and was just the perfect amount- We got three lentil dishes (the spicy one, number 5 I think, was the best!) and injera bread. The injera was very light and delicious and didn't weight me down like it usually does. I liked the lentil dishes so much, too! We ended with the chocolate dessert which was like a chocolate pudding. It was out of this world. I wish I could give this place 100 stars, it was really that phenomenal!

Delicious, reasonably priced food

Hard to come across this in London! Tasty food that doesn't cost the earth. Owner very friendly and explained everything to us. No side dishes as mains are big enough. Highly recommended.

Pros: All vegan, Friendly, Delicious
