Oda garden is good, Oda is better

So actually in Tirana there are two Oda places: Oda Garden (the one here) and Oda, just a street away. The Oda, which is smaller is a lot better! The food tasted better, the vegan dishes are clearly marked and actually the prices are a bit different, too.
Nevertheless the place here, Oda Garden is really good, too. Just keep in mind that the portions are huge, since you have to pay a fee if you don’t finish the meals!

Amazing food and atmosphere

There is a whole vegetarian section, you can check which of these are vegan. The food we had was delicious and the place is so pretty. There was am amazing live band as well. Definitely recommended!

Pros: Delicious food, Beautiful

Confusing options, yummy food

Lovely garden atmosphere with (extremely loud!) live music and string lights. I didn’t find the vegan options clearly marked as per the other reviews, so I asked the waiter to advise. He showed me the options to include the pies, so I ordered a spinach pie and the stuffed eggplant. However, when it arrived I found the pie had cheese. The next waiter was not able to advise on more vegan options, so I ended up with only the eggplant which was delicious but not completely filling, and more pricey compared to typical restaurants.

Pros: Yummy eggplant dish, Lovely garden

Cons: Confusing vegan options/ unhelpful staff, Price, Music too loud to talk

Bonne expérience !

Oda propose quelques options véganes clairement indiquées sur le menu, que nous avons toutes goûtées et qui étaient vraiment bonnes. Les prix ne sont pas les moins chers de Tirana mais restent très raisonnables. Le décor est calme, très traditionnel, et le personnel très attentif et aimable. Le serveur qui s'est occupé de nous était très au point sur le véganisme et soucieux de ne pas nous servir des produits animaux par mégarde (étant donné que le restaurant n'est pas vegan)

Pros: Le personnel serviable et attentionné, Plats albanais traditionnels végan, Le cadre agréable

Cons: Tout n'est malheureusement pas vegan

Fantastic authentic food

Brilliant service, plenty of vegan options in a country which gets quite meaty. Prices can get a little steep but the portions are insanely filling. Highly recommend!

Tasty tourist trap!

If you plan to go, especially on a weekend summer night make a reservation! People were standing out waiting for 40' for a table, including ourselves. But staff was lovely and brought Rakia and water and kept the queue.

There was live music, playing quite loudly, which was kinda fun. But not for those with sensitive ears.

The food was nice, and there were a few dishes which were vegan by default; but nothing that you can't find in other restaurants too..and possibly a bit cheaper. But generally speaking the price is lower than other countries.

That being said, personally I wasn't a huge fan of the dolmeh, but beans and stuffed peppers were nice. Eggplants just ok.

Overall we said it was a tourist trap, with some nice food and lovely staff.

Awesome dinner

All vegan options are clearly indicated in the menu. We tried the filled eggplants, filled peppers and filled grape leaves. We loved them all and we were both really full in the end.
The waiter was very friendly, great service!
You can pay with the card, they will just add 7% of commission.

Pros: Quality of food, Friendly staff , Fair price

Beautiful garden and quick service

A bit confusing to find as this is not located where the pin is on the map here on HappyCow and there is another restaurant nearby with a similar name.

But once I found it everything was amazing! The staff, the cute garden that smelled of jasmine flowers that were sorrounding us and the service was really quick even if there were many people there!

I had the filled aubergine with rice and it was a bit much for just one person. But it was SOOO GOOD! It was somehow creamy(?) and it was like the first food I've had in Albania that was actually flavored.

Plus for well marked vegan items on the menu!!

Pros: Vegan items marked, Fast service , Jasmin smell

Incredible food & setting

The food was divine and the staff were wonderful. The vegan options were so great and really filling. Also, pricing wise you get a lot for the buck. There are 2 gardens and I recommend sitting out back. Would go again ✨

Great dishes

Absolutely loved the plant-based food that was served. Think it says a lot about a place and how future proof they are when they have multiple vegan options on the menu. Great inititative that has to be mentioned and applauded, well done! Very friendly staff as well. They were really kind to us. Would highly recommend to visit the place when in the city. You won’t be left disappointed, that much is for sure!

Pros: Tasty vegan selections, High quality ingredients used, Friendly staff

The staff clearly explained which dishes are vegan. We ordered three of them (stuffed pepper, stuffed aubergine and beans) and everything was very interesting and tasty. Furthermore, considering large portions, the prices were very reasonable. Highly recommended to visit!

Pros: Tasty, Good value, Interesting dishes

Cons: Serves meat

I was here 3 years ago and was impressed by the vegan options and friendly staff. I came again recently and had the stuffed pepper with rice, which was amazing. The portion size was good too. They had a live band playing traditional Albanian style music. You may need a reservation because it's one of the most popular restaurants in Tirana. I paid about 6-7 euros for a small beer and the meal.

View very great options

There are only a view vegan options but the ones they do have are amazing! I ordered the stuffed eggplant and stuffed peppers. The bread unfortunately isn’t vegan (contains egg). The staff is extremely friendly and does know the ingredients of the food very well. The backyard of the restaurant is lovely and if you are lucky, they also do have live music.
Big recommendation for traditional food.

Pros: Tolles Ambiente , Freundliches Personal

Cons: Wenige vegane Optionen

Stuffed eggplant

Busy restaurant to come with omni friends. Stuffed eggplant and Lima beans were fab (one person not super super hungry could just get the eggplant). A bit chaotic but a great find! Lots of cats to snuggle with while you eat but they try to get a snack haha

Pros: Eggplant , Prices, Music/vibe

Amazing Albanian cuisine, with lots of delicious of veg-options!!

Oda is a very popular traditional albanian restaurant in central Tirana!! (And, for a reason!). It has a gorgeous patio space to sit, some adorable frolicking kittens, helpful staff, live music, and, most importantly, DELICIOUS VEGAN FOOD! They have their own vegetarian section in the menu (all of which is fully vegetarian) and many of the options are vegan as well. Just ask the staff (and maybe specify what you can’t eat) and they will be sure to help direct you. I have been several times, and love to get the beans, stuffed grape leaves, stuffed eggplant, and others (I think the stuffed peppers may be vegan, but I’m not sure). It’s also pretty cheap which is nice— Definitely due a visit! You may want to make a reservation since they get busy.
