First Review by Nancy B

Delicious but inconsistent - Edit

I've been here a few times, and the food is delicious. It's not toting itself as healthy, holistic, or holier than thou. It's got flavor, texture, and filling-quantities. If that makes sense. The vegan crab cake is amazing, and I was pleasantly surprised by the chicken fingers. Even my non-veg husband enjoyed the food, but especially enjoyed the collard greens.

The only down side is that they are a bit inconsistent with their food quality (food that's cold) and their speed. But, they're super flexible and super friendly, which helps to make up for that!

Pros: Delicious Food, All-vegan, so no cross contamination, Friendly Staff

Cons: Sometimes cold food, Can be slow

I must say I'm disappointed - Edit

I have been going here for years. The food is often great but occasionally it is very bad. The customer service is where they struggle, there really is no customer service.

Pros: The food can be very tasty, The portion sizes are sometimes great

Cons: Taste is hit or miss, Very poor customer service, Portion size is hit or miss

Great word of mouth but poor selections - Edit

A friend of mine suggested that we make the long trek to Baltimore to check out this restaurant. The word of mouth about the vegan treasure trove was that the mac ‘n cheese was amazing and the other selections were just as wonderful. When we got there the line was out the door (in 20 degree weather no less) and it seemed that this place was insanely popular. That was probably our down fall during our visit. By the time we got to order they were out of their mac and yams and basically everything else we wanted to try. The food we did get was cold but still tasted good. It definitely wasn’t worth the wait or the drive.

Pros: Great atmosphere , Celebrates local artists

Cons: Long waits, Ran out of the popular food options

Pretty good food! - Edit

Pretty good vegan food. Was disappointed that my iced coffee wasn't delivered until after my meal was eaten and then had grounds all in it. But, I would still go again for the food!

Fantastic Visit, Will Return - Edit

I went for lunch and the food was delicious. I ordered the BBQ ribs, collard greens, and mac and cheese. I especially loved the BBQ ribs. The sauce on them was amazing. The restaurant was also having a complimentary tasting while we were there, for new items they were looking to add to their menu.

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Great portion size

Cons: Unfriendly Staff

Okay... will try something different next time - Edit

Decided to visit because of the reviews (and of course, I’m on the vegan track). Ordered their famous crab cakes. Disappointed because they were very salty. I also got a fruit shake which was good.
I will return to try something different.

Great lunch - Edit

When I try a place I haven’t been to, I usually try the special to see what they are highlighting. This didn’t disappoint! Huge serving a Mac & cheese, a serving collard greens (delicious and savory), and a big bowl of “ribs”, with tons of veggies and a great mix of flavors.

Well done!

Friendly staff, asked how our food was when passing by the table, etc.

Satisfying Splurge - Edit

Land of Kush is not a monetary splurge but one of richness of the food. I have loved every soul food selection I have made. Combo platters are a good deal. The availability of catering is an added plus.

Pros: location, catering, consistency

Cons: only rich comfort food

My go-to vegan spot in Baltimore - Edit

The Land of Kush is a vegan soul food joint known for their southern style mac ‘n cheese. This no-frills, order at the counter restaurant offers platters where you pick your entree, two sides, and a drink. You can also order each item separately or get a platter of three sides. Don’t forget to check out the baked goods on the counter. The cornbread is a must. Sides include collard greens, carrot “tuna”, and more. Entrees include BBQ ribs, eggplant parmesan, “chicken” salad, and a Maryland staple, crab cakes! Some entrees are only available on weekends and different specials are offered daily, so you definitely will never get bored of this delicious food. Metered street parking is usually available right outside the restaurant. If you are in the area, definitely stop in for a meal that you will remember.

Pros: excellent food, good value, best vegan mac 'n cheese

Cons: sometimes run out of food, customer service not a priority

Just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's good - Edit

I've been to a good half-dozen vegan "soul food" restaurants, and by a huge margin, this is the worst.
I live in DC. We have two similar places there.
One owner was disorderly and swore at my wife.
I'd rather go back there than this place.
Food tastes like no one bothered to try it before serving it.
Been vegan/vegetarian for almost 20 years. This about as bland and flavorless as anything I've had in that time.

Pros: i guess it's not super expensive?

Cons: everything tried 5 menu items. they all sucked.

They also have raw dishes and desserts which are amazing . Haven't had anything from here that I haven't enjoyed ! Also large portions for cheap

Pros: great price , amazing food

Down Home cuisine - Edit

Owners are often in the establishment and are a nice husband and wife. All of the food is great except I haven't tried the breakfast yet. My favorites are the rib tips and the curry chicken.

Pros: cute location, clean, nice staff

Cons: a little pricey

Really delicious vegan food! - Edit

Land of Kush is perfect for delicious, quick vegan soul food. You can choose from just sides, salads or make a combination platter. The cornbread is slightly sweet and very tasty, so make sure you grab one with your meal!! They are very generous with the portions :)

Pros: Excellent food, Large Portions, Fast

Twice as nice - Edit

Land of Kush was a neat little spot perfect for a quick and affordable meal. We had all of their entrees. The sauces were delicious! We tried most of their sides as well including carrot tuna, collard greens and mac and cheese. We took a few desserts to go and sampled their homemade lemonade, iced tea and ginger beer. All were hits! If you don’t believe us ask Stevie Wonder. We went there twice when he was in Baltimore!!

Great Find - Edit

I will come back to Baltimore just for this restaurant EXCELLENT. They were out of some of the entrees that I wanted to try but, I enjoyed the chicken salad and the Mac and cheese was great also . Thumbs up!!! The only reason I won't give a perfect rating is because they were out of some of the entrees that I wanted to try.

Solid, consistent, affordable - Edit

Friendly staff/counter-service. My favorite are the "crab" cakes, served Fri-Sun and the macaroni and "cheese" and the kale salad. Also have good desserts from Cameron's. Very affordable. Consistently good.

Pros: Great food, Friendly, Affordable

Land of Kush is Lost - Edit

The lowest I can give is two stars, HC? Okay, I guess the fact that I did indeed swallow one of my two bites meant this dish was edible.

It's been at least a year since I've visited LOK. The first experience, and up until today, was the last, was less than favorable. I found the food unpleasant--looking and tasting.

This visit was more of the same. I ordered a side of the Mac n cheese to go. Before I got home, I tried it. Yuck. I swallowed. I tried it again. Double yuck. I spit it out.

I then drove to Red Emma's for Mac n cheese. Much, much, better.

Why, LOC, does your Mac n cheese taste like fake butter that's been burned in a cast iron skillet, doughy flour, and old nutritional yeast?

Pros: Pros: quick service, but without a pleasant smile.

Cons: Cons: unpleasant smile, but with quick service

Okay... - Edit

Visiting Baltimore and tried LOK for a nice vegan dinner for takeout. Efficiency and service was great. I ordered drummies, mac&cheese, candied yams, collard greens, and pineapple cake for dessert. Food tasted fresh. Flavor and seasoning was just okay. I travel a lot and try many vegan spots around the country and for me this one probably was a one and done experience. You should still give it a shot as you might just love it.

Tasty Vegan Soul Food - Edit

This place is pretty satisfying if you only want vegan food. It's far away from the popular touristy places, so, that makes parking really easy!

The food is simple and to the point - a few smoothie options, some juices and a handful of desserts like pineapple upside down cake or cheesecake. They also sell some vegan popcorn. The cold display case holds the salads and sides for the day, like potato salad, live kale salad, cucumber and tomato salad, sesame spinach, pasta salad, and carrot "tuna."

If you look towards the back, you'll see them creating your food. There is seating by the window and a few tables scattered around, so it isn't just a take-out place. It has a similar vibe to other vegan soul food places - very low key, understated decor and powerful food flavors.

They offer brunch, which obviously for vegans, is very exciting! Vegan pancakes, vegan spinach lasagna and vegan crab cakes on the weekends? Ok, sounds good, if you like cooked food and can have gluten. All vegan though, pretty sweet traditional style food - veganized! Great to have something like this in B'more.

When you order here, the menu is pretty small for the number of entrees, but, I like it better, because it feels like they can manage a smaller menu and keep it up to date, with fresh ingredients and be fast to cook for you. Add on a side or two - best cooked choices, obviously the collard greens and mac and cheese! Good eating of "comfort food" that will make you forget the challenges of vegan eating when out with your non-vegan friends.

Prices are good, portions are good, staff is nice.

Pros: All vegan, Some raw choices, Mac n cheese, collard greens

Cons: No raw entree

Good takeout place - Edit

So, if you've eaten at Soul Vegetarian or any of the myriad other vegetarian soul food eateries across the U.S., you should know what to expect here. Smoked greens, mac & cheese, curry chik'n, BBQ 'ribs', etc. However, there is some variability. On weekends they serve a spinach lasagna and vegan crab cakes, and on Sunday they offer a pretty good brunch with blueberry pancakes, seitan scramble, vegan sausage, and home fries.

The main point to keep in mind is that this is mostly a takeout place. Seating is very limited and usually has been completely taken anytime I've been there to eat in. Which means I have stopped going there with the intention to eat in. My girlfriend and I went to try their brunch one day and there was one table open with a single chair. After eating most of my meal while standing, the owner finally came by and told someone to get a chair for me from downstairs. Meanwhile kids were running all over the place and it was very loud due to one large table of customers. So, yeah, get your food to go or catch them at one of the many events they cater in the area. We got catered food from them for my birthday one year and it was delicious. The food is good but rich, as expected.

Pros: good food, good value

Cons: very small dining area, service can be slow
