Our history is our mission and passion for the community.

After many years of catering, we decided to open a vegan restaurant in our own sprawling lakefront neighborhood of South Shore. Frankly, we grew tired of leaving our community every time we wanted a healthy meal so we created the solution.

Majani Restaurant is a low-key, easygoing stop serving a range of plant-based cuisine, and vegan offerings. Majani uses the freshest ingredients from local gardens and farms. This is why we chose the name Majani, it is Swahili for 'green'.

We believe every community should have healthy eating options, and Majani is committed to this cause. We believe resilient communities need jobs, and this is why over 80% of our employees live in South Shore. Majani proudly features reclaimed and recycled building materials adding to its cozy warm atmosphere. Our unique living awning, hand crafted community table, and repurposed tin ceiling are features making Majani feel like coming home.

Our Chefs are dedicated to their craft and service.

Majani was created by Chef Nasya & Tsadakeeyah who have 30 plus years combined experience as vegan chefs. Majani in South Shore is a dream come true, a labor of love, and a gift to the community. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
