Ok food

Friendly service. The incense inside was a bit too strong so we sat outside.
Portions quite small and expensive. We had the plate of the day (soup, salad, zaatar flatbread) for 18.50 and the artichoke flatbread which was 15 or 16 but were still a bit hungry.
The flatbread itself was really good but we weren't so keen on the filling (it might be that we just don't like zaatar). The quinoa salad was OK but not particularly interesting.
It was a really pleasant lunch stop and I think worth a visit but we wouldn't go there a second time.

Clearly labeled vegan

The food was very good. The portions were much smaller than other restaurants in the area and the price seemed a bit high.

The lemonade is good, but it’s carbonated lemonade. They have different flavors. Everyone at our table enjoyed the passionate fruit more than the blood orange flavor.

The hummus is tasty. I ordered gluten free Rougettes. The red pepper paste on it was very flavorful.

Great Lebanese food

The staff here are incredibly friendly and explain the menu very clearly. We ordered two flatbreads, a side salad and the gazpacho soup. All really tasty. The waitress recommended some puddings to us and we couldn’t say no! The lemon cheesecake was great but the granola pudding was exceptional. Make sure you book in august because it gets busy. Outdoor seating available.

Nice Food and People in Nice

Quite Nice! I love love loved the food. It was so refreshing and flavorful. The food was light but filling. It was a cool peaceful oasis after a hot day at the crowded beach. The staff was so kind and friendly.

Pros: Staff, The rougette flat bread, The wine was cheap but cheerful

4* - Nice little restaurant in Nice

First let me talk about the staff, they are very very nice people and explain the menu and the restaurant concept really well.

The food is also good, all was tasty, even if nothing was the best I've ever had or wowed me completely.

Had the hummus, the gaspacho and the saj with red pepper paste and arugula. All was tasty.

Vegan dishes are clearly pointed on the menu, which is nice (nicer would be if everything was vegan tho😄).

Delicious and healthy vegan food made with true passion

We ate here and loved it so much we hustled right back a couple days later. The daily lunch meal combo is VEGAN and so creative and delicious and inexpensive compared to the pricey and mediocre food you get elsewhere. We had a delicious and creative soup, salad and flatbread. They even have vegan desserts and vegan frappes! The owner is clearly passionate about creative and delicious food. This is what the world needs more of….healthy vegan food made from whole plant ingredients not fake meat substitutes. I wish they would open a SAJ in California!

Hidden gem, worth visiting

Found this place by accident actually. But we were very happy that it happened. The owner was very nice and friendly to talk to. Half of the dishes were vegan and very good. My favourite was spinach flat bread and the Baba ganoush. The decorations are also something very special and worth mentioning. Check it out.

Light meals and nice staff

This restaurant specializes in lebanese flat bread with different fillings - savory and sweet. The vegan ones are clearly labeled on the menu. In my opinion, it is a good place to have a light meal and if you already explored the fully vegan restaurants. The owner is very nice and explains everything.

We love this place!

It is rare to find a menu full of amazingly tasty food. We eat vegan cuisine extensively and this is one of the best you will find. With an authentic Lebanese menu prepared with, and served with, obvious care and attention. We really liked the soups for the range and depth of flavour, the choice of wines and the incredible desserts (especially the Halva). Daniel, the host, buys food fresh from the local market daily and even grows produce on land on the local Chateau Colline.

Nice place

Nice and cozy place in Nice, with lots of vegan options (and gluten free too).
The Hummus was really good.

A small note: the ingredients could be fresher (many are packaged).

Delicious food!

A welcoming place with great food. We had the dish of the day, soup with a salad and flatbread. Delicious mix of flavours in the salad and soup. Lovely taste to the flatbread. The white 'coffee' was also a delight.
No need for animal products. I would encourage them to become completely vegan.

Pros: Imaginative, delicious food., Welcoming and helpful.

Cons: Not completely vegan

Best vegan restaurant in Nice/South France

We had a family meal here a few days ago & absolutely LOVED it. I can’t fault the experience in any way. The restaurant is in the old town area of Nice & as soon as we stepped into the restaurant from the mid-day heat into the cool, air conditioned restaurant, we had a fantastic time. The owner, Daniel, was warm & friendly & explained the menu concept to us in fluent spoken English (we’re from the UK). We had delicious flat breads with melon gazpacho & a delicious quinoa/rocket leaves/salsa-type dish. It was original, extremely flavoursome & good sized portions. Service by all staff was efficient & friendly. The decor & ambiance was inviting & even the bathroom was clean & fresh too! Thankfully Daniel encouraged us to have desert & I’m glad we did. We shared a tiramisu cheesecake & some fig & geranium ice cream.
Everything we had was vegan. We’ve been vegan for years & have never eaten restaurant food as creative, original & delicious as this, it was obviously curated with so much care & imagination - it had Ottolenghi style vibes but more vegan options & attention to detail. For the quality of the food we had, in the location, I felt the meal was very reasonably priced. We don’t have anywhere this exciting here in London, other than French restaurant Gauthier Soho. An absolute treat to visit Saj, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. It’s also the only vegan restaurant in Nice which is open in the evenings. Well done Daniel, you have an outstanding restaurant.

This must be the place

We ended up going here on a whim and are so glad we did. To say the experience was amazing is an understatement. The owner and the staff so clearly care about the food they are making and the customers they are serving. They explained the food incredibly clearly and asked us if we had any dietary restrictions (so rare in France). The inside ambiance is calm and beautiful. The food was amazing, highly recommend the tiramisu cheesecake (vegan!). AMAZING value.

Pros: Lots of Vegan options & very good vegetarian too, Vegan options clearly labeled , Kind, considerate, and friendly staff

Fresh Lebanese sandwich salad soups, small restaurant in old town

Fresh made, pleasant competent service, fluent English spoken. Sandwiches served in baskets. Look out for upsell and what you order to receive what you expect. It’s small restaurant so understand but can be deceiving.
