Description: amazing Vegan food for those who miss meat!! Souly vegan is an amazing restaurant with an amazing story! You MUST go to there web sight & check them out. Great collard greens, amazing no meat chicken & free oranges wail you wait. I am a vegetarian who used to love a good meaty sandwich & this place makes me forget all about my old habits. The first time I eat the chicken sandwich I knew going vegetarian wasn’t going to be as hard as I thought, as long as souly vegan is open!!!

Before heading to SF, i did my homework and checked for good places to dine. This restaurant, located at walking distance from Jack London square, was my worse experience in East Bay. The food is fat, uninspired and not apealing. The name is promising a healthy meal, while you will get a heavy, high carbs meal that takes you out... More

We couldn't decide on just a couple of items, so we split a large sampler plate. Loved it all! Will definitely have fried okra, mac and cheese, potato salad, black eyed peas and BBQ tofu again. We were pretty full after finishing off every bite from the two large plates of food, but couldn't pass up sharing a slice of... More

I had very big expectations for Souley Vegan, but the food didn't quite live up to them. I had heard this place was pretty much the bomb for vegetarians, and several people recommended it, which is why my expectations were so high. My wife and I were pretty excited for our food, after checking out the menu. We ordered A... More

Oh Souly Vegan.... How you have disappointed me on this New Years Day. I just wanted some vegan soul food and black eyed peas to start the New Year. I was careful to check the Groupon for black out dates. Nope, New Years Day was NOT listed as a black out date. When we arrived, we were told that there... More

I was overwhelmed with the delicious choices offered on the menu. As I struggled with indecision, I was offered samples of various dishes to help me narrow down my choices. I ended up getting the chicken fried tofu on grits with gumbo (all vegan, obviously) and was THRILLED with my decision. I also got a biscuit with gravy to take... More

Let me begin this post by telling you that I am not even a vegan. I was in Oakland attending a conference and I stayed at a hotel across the street from Souley. The place was amazing. My colleague and I ate there two nights in a row. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was great. We had... More

My husband and I are not vegans, but we eat here often. The food is great - especially the portobello mushroom burger and the bbq tofu, the prices are extremely reasonable, the portions huge, and the atmosphere is fun - especially the back room with a DJ spinning and old episodes of "Soul Train" streaming on the video monitor! It's... More

The owner,Tameara, and staff are friendly and welcoming, the food is awesome! Being vegan I usually am happy with a salad or something simple, however there are times when soul food is in order, and Tameara does it right! I am so thankful we found this place! Bashi and I went in to order dessert because we ate a big... More

I am not a vegan, but I had heard so many positive comments that I decided to check it out. I enjoted the visit. I went by myself, so was not able to try much on the menu. The place is very informal, so do not expect anything elegant. The set up is ordering at the front desk and then... More
