    Classy place with warm atmosphere, variety of vegan options and good service. The only minus for me was the fact that almost all foods were spicy and since I'm sensitive, I did not have many options.

    Mouthwatering vegetarian dishes, worth the long wait. Finally a restaurant that explores all the vegetable world has to offer, instead of serving carnivore dishes ruined with fake meat substitutes.

    Lovely service, good options. Maybe I chose the wrong thing in the menu for my tastes, but I was underwhelmed by the kofta. The waitress' favorite was the noodles, probably should have gone with that!

    The kofte were really, really tasty.
  • Karolina C.
    Tried aubergine, chick pea and cashew koftas and left very pleased. Pleasantly surprised by hot fresh bun with butter and a bottle of water with mint, none of that was charged. A glass of Cava - perf.

    Incredibly delicious. All-veg meals can often feel a little heavy, but with portions not too big, this finds the balance really well.

    Menu lacked a coherent theme, as did the ambience. Food was tasty and obviously all vegetarian but left feeling a bit "that was alright" rather than blown away.

    To be honest I was very disappointed. Service and wines fantastic, but dishes were so pretentious and just a random mishmash of ingredients with no proper thought. Such a shame for the "#1 vegetarian"

    Thai fritters were sooo good. Banana chutney is 👌 mushroom wellington for main was also rather tasty. Staff were excellent and food came very quickly (and it was very fresh).

    Delicious food, very well thought-out dishes. Good value for the quality, friendly staff. One of the best vegetarian restaurants I've been to in the UK. Book ahead, understandably popular.

    Don't try the cheese plate unless you are really really really into cheese. It's intense.

    The service is excellent but the food is what makes this place a gem! Try the Thai fritters for starters and udon noodles! They taste like nothing from this planet especially considering its veggie.

    I recommend dinner here even for non-vegetarians. Great,interesting meals and super value. Actually - it might be even more interesting if you're not a vegetarian to try something new!

    Delicious veggie restaurant. Foodie quality not outrageously priced. Whisky panna cotta FTW.

    Everything we ate was delicious but the chocolate sauce with the chilli pancake was on another level. Enjoy!

    Go here for some hard to find, fancy vegetarian dining, with interesting flavors bases on vegetables, herbs and spices, rather than an overload of mock meats. There should be more of these restaurants

    The vegan chocolate ice cream is divine! Couldn't believe a vegan dessert could taste that good.

    The smoked tofu is really unusual and unlike any other tofu I've had. Fantastic range of dishes, good size portions and the food isn't bulked out with carbs like some vegetarian meals.

    The vegan chocolate ice cream (hidden without a V on the dessert menu) is outrageously good, can't recommend it enough, fantastic!

    As a non Vegetarian I actually liked the creativity and flavour of the food. Had the Jerusalem artichoke which was nice and peppery. Also very impressed by the choice of beers and ales
