Bomb comfort food and super friendly service. Worth the schlep from Brooklyn. Had the Soul Tray with fried chicken, collards, and mac & cheese. Also shared buffalo cauliflower wings. Loved everything. Will definitely be returning to try more dishes as well as breakfast.

Vegan Oasis in Staten Island

Getting some dinner before visiting family on Staten Island, I picked out TRI Lounge from the 3 vegan restaurants listed with Happy Cow and we were not disappointed! Everything is made from scratch and so delicious! We went for the Soul Tray so we could try a few things, we chose the fried chicken which is made from deep fried oyster mushrooms, mac and cheese, of course and then collard greens, everything was amazing, the fried 'chicken' and mac n cheese especially. It also came with a really yummy corn muffin! We also got the baked ziti which was incredible, we had leftovers for breakfast. We wanted to bring dessert to the family so ordered a pound of zeppoles and more corn muffins, incredible! My partner is not vegan and loved it all. We'll definitely be back to try more items, we saw pizzas getting picked up for takeout and would like to give that a try sometime. The owner is super sweet, does all the cooking and served the food, quite the personal touch! The space itself has a very homey feel with a small entertainment area and music (not live) playing while we were there was great too.

Pros: Amazing food, Great service , Cool vibe

So Good, Want to go Back Tomorrow

Went there with my mother today for the first time and we both had the smothered chicken and it was so good. My mother is not a vegan, but absolutely loved it. The owner who also owns Nacho Mama is so nice, and we had some great conversations about food, veganism, etc.
Looking forward to trying more dishes from there the next time I am in Staten Island.

Pros: Large Menu, Super Friendly Staff, Great Space

Cons: A Little Slow, But was Made to Order

Lots of hits, some misses.

I've eaten here many times. The best item is the mix and match soul plate. The mushroom based fried chicken is great, as is all the sides. The chicken sandwich was too dry, the bun not toasted but otherwise good. The chili dog was soggy and had no topping. The breakfast options are all awesome with huge portions. The cinnamon cupcakes are very good. Usually vegan cake can be dry or gummy but these are excellent. The brownie is also awesome. I hope they improve where needed, but overall the food is satisfying and tasty.

Pros: Mix and match soul plate can't miss, Pancakes, Cupcakes

Cons: Soggy buns, No topping on chili dog

Amazing food

I was in town visiting my father . I’m from jersey and was hungry . So I googled vegan spot, Tri lounge came up so gave it a try. The cauliflower and broccoli cheese soup was so rich in taste and delicious. Also bought sea moss gel and elderberry syrup. Staff are so pleasant, definitely recommend this place. Will go back for sure!

Promising new vegan spot

Appreciate a new vegan spot on Staten Island! The staff was very friendly and prompt in service. The pizza was out when we went, but they accommodated by adding extra veggies to the pasta with marinara, which was pretty tasty. I also got the quinoa chili that was quite flavorful! They were a good deal too--our bill came out to be about $15!

Pros: Many vegan options, Friendly staff, Very affordable
