From the Customers:
“Great food and great atmosphere. I had a the chick pea bunny chow and my friend had the ginger peanut tofu wrap. Both dishes were delicious, well presented and wholesome! Its awesome having a restaurant that serves such great plant based meals in Jhb. I would definitely recommend this establishment to people who follow a plant based diet or people looking to just try something different. wonderful staff as well. I’m sure going to be visiting regularly!”

“I landed up at Conscious by pure accident yesterday. I was looking for a restaurant that would serve something hearty and healthy and because it looked so attractive from outside, I stepped right in. When looking at the menu I couldn’t find anything meaty or fishy until the waitress told me that this is in fact a vegan restaurant. I was nervous at first but decided to go with the flow and try the not so chicken may wrap and salad. DELICIOUS! I was so impressed by the taste of the food, the presentation, atmosphere and service. I am definitely coming back here soon!”

Address
Shop 5B, Reithmere, Corner of Delta Street and Corlett Drive, Birnam, Sandton

From the Customers:

“My most favourite restaurant in the world. You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy everything on the menu. I fell in love with the chickpea burger when Free Food opened and I can’t deviate from it. Now there’s milk tart, which is sublime. When the owner and his staff are always ready to feed you and you leave guilt free, you know you’ve found the perfect place to indulge in an incredibly tasty, healthy meal”

“ This place is on another level. I’m ruthlessly addicted to their dairy-sugar-gluten free milkshakes. And I usually love my dairy, sugar and gluten. I recently had their chickpea burger which was just as amazing. Other than the milkshakes, they’re more than well-priced and the atmosphere is lovely and welcoming. Definitely a favorite.”

Address
103 Komatie Road, Emmarentia, Johannesburg

From the Customers:

“I love Fresh Earth both for shopping for food and for eating food. I always find it hard to choose a meal as they have so many amazing and delicious options. Not to mention the wide variety of drinks with sugar free milkshakes which are divine. This time round I went for the Halloumi salad and my husband for one of their Hummus bowls. So fresh and flavourful!”

“Great restaurant. This is a haven for vegetarians. A must-try is the buffet, which always has fresh, tasty food and the most unique salads. The flavors really compliment each other in all the meals and you don’t miss meat at all. The smoothies and fruit juices are delicious and the cakes are fantastic. You can eat as much as you want without feeling like you’re overdoing it or pigging out.”

Address
Rocky Ridge Road, Off Beyers Naudé Drive, Muldersdrift, West Rand

From the Customers:

“ As a vegetarian, this is one of the best places I’ve been to. The food is amazing, very healthy and organic. Love the chilled vibe they have. If you’re looking for somewhere to relax on a Sunday afternoon, this place is definitely recommended. Foods are all freshly made and even the ice cream is homemade. It may be a bit pricey, but it’s worth it !”

“Absolutely love this spot. The food is absolutely sublime. Such an incredible selection of homemade vegan deliciousness. My husband is the most anti vegan, meat loving human you will ever meet. I basically had to drag him here. Well, he loved it. Didn’t even notice the lack of meat/dairy in his food. Bookings are essential, and would suggest getting there early for the first pickings. God bless the owners of leafy greens!”

“This is my favourite vegan restaurant in Johannesburg. The food is divine – even carnivores will be hard-pressed not to enjoy their meals. There is nothing better than having an entire menu to choose from, and their menu is extensive. As a vegan, getting spoilt to a burger and shake is the best! The service is awesome and the decor is clean and fresh …”

Fruits & Roots Restaurant

Address
Shop 13, Hobart Grove Shopping Centre, Corner of Hobart and Grosvenor Roads, Bryanston, Sandton

From the Customers:

“Our waitress was very sweet and helpful, making suggestions when someone was confused in making a decision. The menu had many nice options, which made choosing difficult. The roast vegetable sandwich was very filling, interesting and tasty. Wasn’t too fond of the pineapple, apple and ginger juice – found that the ginger was quite overpowering. Would like to return to try out more dishes. Came here for a second visit – loved the falafel wrap”

“I love this place for its health alternatives – gluten-free, vegan, etc.! The food is generous and actually tastes wonderful! The falafel is delish! I wasn’t a fan of their smoothies, but the juices are fresh and good. It’s also great to be able to buy groceries – I do wish there were more organic fresh produce!”
