Vegan Friendly Restaurants in Lagos

 It can be a struggle being vegan or plant-based in Nigeria when you’re away from your sacred home kitchen and looking for somewhere to eat out. Although the options are limited all hope for a cruelty-free healthy meal is not lost. We have listed some of our favorite vegan friendly restaurants below.

  • Veggie Victory

Freedom Park, Broad St, Lagos

Nigeria’s only vegan restaurant has various options of veganized Nigerian food (swallow & stew, rice etc). The shawarma with VegMeat is arguably one of the best available!

  • So Fresh

92 Awolowo Road, Ikoyi

Features fresh made to order salads and willing to accommodate vegan requests. They also have vegan friendly snack items on a display stand.

  • RSVP

9 Eletu Ogabi, Victoria Island, Lagos

Friendly staff that are willing to concoct special plant-based meals that are off the menu, just mention you would like a vegan option when ordering. We love the spicy hummus and mushroom trip (be sure to ask them to leave off the parmesan).

  • Spice Route

36 Adeola Odeku St, Victoria Island, Lagos

Indians are known for being vegetarian and their extensive menu has plenty of veggie options. Make sure you request them to exclude cream, milk, butter and ghee as it is normally added to meals. Be sure to try any dish with lentils or chickpeas for a protein boost.   

  • Mint

33 Grace Anjous Drive, Lekki Phase 1

This hidden gem in Lekki has plenty of yummy veggie sandwich, soup and salad options that are vegan or can be veganized.

  • Shiro

Water Corporation Road, Eti-Osa, Lagos

Asian fusion that includes lots of Japanese options that are vegan like sushi and edamame. The food is tasty and the ambience is exquisite.

  • Hard Rock Cafe

Water Corporation Road, Eti-Osa, Lagos

Nestled between Landmark and Shiro and has a separate menu listing dedicated to vegetarians. You will need to veganized some food items but it’s definitely worth it. Try the onion rings for a quick bite!

  • Casper & Gambini

3 Agoro Odiyan Street, Lagos

A bit on the pricey side but has delicious options that can be veganized. Try the tomato basil soup or arrabiata pasta for a simple vegan selection.

  • Nuli at BLD

15a Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1

Great option for vegan brunch and located inside of BLD restaurant. We like the qunioa oatmeal but you may want to bring your own agave for a low-glycemic pairing.  

  • Simply Green

17B Musa Yar'adua street, Victoria Island, Lagos

Most popular for their juices, this juice bar also offers salads that are vegan. Light and fresh lunch option to the rescue.

  • Lagoon

Ozumba Mbadiwe Ave, Victoria Island, Lagos

A trio of restaurants- Lagoon, Fusion and Churrasco, however you will find more veggie friendly options on the continental menu outside and Japanese menu. Let your creative juices flow while you veganize their food options.
