Worth waiting for

Managed to get a table at 5:30 Friday. The waitress upstairs was lovely and very helpful. Out of the group we had two veggie's and the rest of us wouldn't normally eat veggie. The food was delicious and we will definitely be back.

I've been to Mildred's 3 times for a variety of occasions: midweek celebration dinner, hosting a non-veggie non-Londoner, treat date night and it is such a welcoming and buzzy restaurant that no-one feels out-of-place. The food is always delicious, always arriving hot and without a long wait. Starters would be large enough for a small appetite but the mains are... More

If you want to taste the real vegetarian spirit of London (and Soho), you can't afford missing this place. Even if you have to queue (no table reservation), it is worth visit. My daughter keeps asking me all the time when we are going to London next time as she would like to go to Mildred's once more ... No... More

Go to Mildred's! It's everything you've heard and more. We visited as a couple early on a Saturday evening, had the wait explained and started ordering cocktails. We were seated before I'd even half finished my Old Fashioned, and given the tall chairs in one of the windows. The menu choices are great. We would happily have tried everything on... More

Great vegetarian and vegan food - never fails with food and service. Highly recommended. Can get fairly busy but is worth the wait

I did 'vegan January' which was tough, I was feeling deprived, until dinner at Mildred's. Great options, clearly marked veggie or vegan on the menu. I had a VEGAN chocolate brownie and ice cream for dessert which was unbelievably good, I kept asking the waitress if it was definitely vegan!

Not much to add to what others have said. As a recent convert to veggie-ness it was great to eat somewhere where I genuinely didn't miss the meat options. As others have stated, it gets busy! We turned up at 5.20pm on a Tuesday and got seated straight away (although it was still busy). Tried the same time a few... More

Excellent restaurant with a really nice menu. We had to wait during 15 mins for a table but it was worth it. Food was very tasty and nicely presented. Wine was very good - there's even a note on the menu when the drink is vegan. Very crowded place - hence loudy. We'd go back for sure!

Had lunch here on the Friday, very busy even when we arrived at around 1 pm! Shown to table (it is quite cramped but aren't some of the best eateries in London?) The service was a straight 10/10 friendly and completely genuine by people who clearly enjoy working there! And possibly most importantly the food was great! The falafel sharing... More

I'm a non - veggie but came her with my friend who is a vegetarian. We had a long wait of 1 hour before being seated. The restaurant was very busy and quite loud as you're all sat quite close together. The food was nice. I had the butternut squash coconut curry. My friend had the mushroom pie but said... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
