My father in law - a big carnivore - took my husband and I, along with his partner to Zoukini's for my husbands birthday. Great atmosphere, friendly service, food lacking. My husband and I are both vegetarian/vegan and were sorely disappointed at the lack of well... anything in the dishes. The menu is promising, but lack of flavour and seasoning... More

Zoukini's is a vegetarian restaurant (with vegan options) in the suburb of Westbourne (which is only 20 minutes walk from the centre of town). Westbourne has a large number of cafes, restaurants and takeaways, so competition is stiff. However Zoukini's has a distinctive if slightly limited menu, with only around 5 main course dishes. We went for a Sunday lunch... More

Went to Zoukinis with my daughter Lizzi for her birthday. As a non-vegetarian, I found the food to be excellent and the service very warm and friendly. A good place to start exploring the 'other side'.

Second visit in last few months to Zoukinis vegetarian restaurant in Westbourne. On both occasions food bland and uninspiring and service up attentive and poor. Decor lovely and it has so much potential. But not enough staff and owner hasn't got the people skills to pull it off. It feels more like a pet project than a business and it... More

This restaurant is great! cosy, chilled and lovely staff. I'm a massive meat eater and coming here definitely satisfied. it's easy to come with the preconception that it's just going to be veg and rice but it's really not. the portions were plenty and extremely filling. this sort of food really is a one off and i could not recommend...

From the lady who answered the phone when we were calling to reserve the table, to having a lovely chat with the restaurant owner just before we left, everything was absolutely perfect. We were given a big table even though we were only a party of two, the atmosphere was gorgeous and the food was exquisite. The Garlic Ciabatta starter... More

I'm veggie but my husband is an avid meat eater. He really enjoys the food. Good range of meals and tasty food. Shame it's not iron more often.

After waiting 15 minutes to be served, as they clearly serve friends before others, and then 45 minutes for food, we decided to ask how much longer it would be. The waitress we spoke to was extraordinarily rude in her response, telling us that we should have expected to wait that long as it was 'very busy'. The place was... More

The food was so scrumptious, I can't wait to go back. We all had a wonderful meal, and the bottle of red wine we chose was one of the best I've ever had.

There is so much choice on the menu that even as a meat eater I didn't feel like they were missing out on anything. Everything tastes amazing and it makes you try things that you probably wouldn't. I've only been in for lunch and I keep meaning to get in for their Thali night
