Majani Soulful Vegan Cuisine is an amazing place to grab a healthy bite to eat. The service is fast and the food is delicious! I have eaten more than a few times at this place and every time the food was on point! Must try’s are the greens and fried grits!! Mmmmmmm
Vegan deliciousness all rolled up into one at this cozy one of a kind gem on the SouthSide! From the customer service to the food, everything we had was an A++. I got the collards, sweet potatoes, Mac &cheese, & substituted the BBQ cauliflower for the jerk tofu. Definitely returning to get the fried okra, fritters, and more of the battered cauliflower! Great job, putting love into your food, Majani team…we felt and tasted all of it!
Best vegan cuisine I've eaten in a while. Service was amazing, a complementary cup of soup was exactly what we needed on a cold & rainy evening. The fried cauliflower in bbq sauce is a tasty starter, gumbo with yellow rice and greens was so good! Mushroom tacos looked pretty and tasted delicious, I did have to take half home, reheating didn't dry the food either. Try the ginger lemonade too.
