Great food here

We had mushroom and jackfruit wraps served with sweet potato fries.
I live the mushroom/soy meat wrap so much. It’s packed with favors; sweet n’ salty.

Although the price was quite high for Sri Lanka but understandable since it is probably for tourists.

The place is clean and friendly.

Gute Burger und Wraps

Viele vegane Optionen. Leider gibt es dort scheinbar keine Pizza mehr - schade! Burger und Avocado-Wrap waren auch sehr gut. Wir waren noch ein zweites Mal zum Frühstück dort. Perfekte Avocado-Toasts und frischer Saft!

Thanks a lot. We transferred our pizza oven to our new branch in Sigiriya where there is more space and open air. There we serve pizza soon :)

The vibe is amazing, the food is amazing (tasty and fresh) and the place itself is amazing. A lot of options are already Vegan but they veganize everything upon request as suggested on the menu.
Highly recommended.

We had to wait some time for our food but it was worth the wait. The food was delicious (especially the coconut-chocolate bar!) and the prices are absolutely fair. High recommendation and so nice to find such a place in Kandy!

Pros: Viele vegane Optionen, Faire Preise, Nette Bedienung

Cons: Lage an der Straße

Nice peaceful break from crazy Kandy

Plenty of variety, staff were friendly. The atmosphere was relaxing and peaceful. The staff double checked with me if I was vegetarian or vegan, so they have a great understanding of what's vegan.

Pros: Peaceful location , Huge portions, Lovely staff

Heerlijke burger en zoete aardappel frietjes

Ik bestelde de jackfruit - zoete aardappel burger. Erg lekker! Werd geserveerd met zoete aardappel frietjes, ik denk dat ze huisgemaakt waren. Ook deze smaakte goed! Het was volledig vegan, ze gebruikte kokosnootboter. Top!

Pros: Heerlijke burger, Home made sweet potato fries

Cons: Klein tentje in druk gebied (bij bushalte), Weinig sfeer

Hard to find and limited variety

Despite a menu that looks like half of it is vegan, only two dishes are marked vegan and we were assured by our server that that was all we could have as vegans.
It was really hard to find and didn’t feel like a very safe place to be, so we left and went to the nearby food court on the fourth floor of the shopping centre which had lots of choice of Thai, Chinese and Indian dishes suitable for vegans.

We were messaged afterwards inviting us to come back and they would tell us what on their menu could be veganised. Seems a shame that they don’t just mark all the items that are quite obviously vegan (unless they add mayo or something?). The menu is very limited too. Pasta, wraps and a bowl or two. So not a spot for an evening meal.

Thanks for your review. As we have already told you this was a misunderstanding, that's why we invited you back to highlight our vegan options. And as you can see from other reviews mainly all dishes can be veganized. A review based on a marking on the menu which for sure had its logics when we created it seems a bit picky. Especially when we made so many vegans happy before you. Also mentioning that this "didn't feel like a very safe place" needs more information. It's not on a main road but otherwise it's safe. Also our menu is definitely not limited, we never heard this before. You can't compare a food court in a shopping mall with multiple stalls to a normal restaurant. Other restaurants even have less variety. Again, we are sorry that we didn't match your needs. Thanks and best, Soul Food

Good food and amazing people!

We were in Kandy during the curfew when most things were closed. Fortunately, a guy on the street told us about Soul Food and personally escorted us there which was wonderful because we never would have found it otherwise! It's tiny and a bit hidden. There were so many friendly people... the owner, staff and it seemed just friends hanging out that were all so lovely and appreciative we stopped by. The owner also feeds the people who live on the street and the homeless dogs! I wish we had arrived hungry (we had unfortunately just eaten at our guest house who told us every restaurant was closed!) but I was able to force myself to get a smoothie bowl and am glad I did! It was delicious. We hoped to try the vegan avocado mousse but they were out due to curfew / shopping restrictions. Definitely stop by if you're in town!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Reasonable prices and your $ goes to good causes! , Friendly and kind owner and staff

Cons: Hard to find, but hopefully you'll get an escort!

really good pizza

the staff were all very welcoming and they were open during a power cut which was very handy ! the pizza had vegan cheese options and the hawaiian was very tasty, all cooked in a proper stone pizza oven. pricier than other places in the areas but worth it and something you can’t really get anywhere else in kandy.

Un petit restaurant Végétarien à découvrir !

Des produits et une équipe au petit soin.
Un lieu original qui mérite que l'on s'y arrête.
Ne vous laisser pas repousser par l'ambiance extérieure, rentrez et vous découvrirez un petit lieu cossy avec des personnes agréables.

Pros: 100% végétarien et option vegan , Service attentionné , Ambiance et rapport qualité prix

Cons: Emplacement difficile à trouver
