It's so rare to find a place that cooks with generous portions of vegetables, which is what makes this place so great. Its small... but its diminutive size is part of the charm. And surprisingly you never have to wait long to grab a table, especially if you are happy to share a space with strangers. The food is always... More

Blink and you can miss it as it's the width of a large cupboard but it offers great veggie and vegan food to take away as evidenced by the fact that it's always busy at lunchtime. I've never dined in but can heartily recommend the food as I regularly grab a bite at lunchtime. It's about £5 per main dish... More

Few and far between are the restaurants in London where you can get a 3 course vegetarian meal of excellent quality for around 10 GBP but this is one of them. They focus on vegetarian/vegan curries, soup, quiches and a couple of desert options. About the quality of the food and the ingredients I can be brief: they're crackling fresh... More

This is a no-frills simple vegetarian eatery with communal tables. The people who work there clearly take pride in doing so, and it shows in the quality of the food. I had soup and salads, and it was the best meal I had in London at a fraction of the price I paid elsewhere. Definitely worth a visit when you... More

The food was wonderful and there was a very large selection. Portions are also quite big, and the prices are fairly cheap. You don't have to be a vegeterian to enjoy a meal there. The place is quite crowded, which I usually don't enjoy, but I think it works out fine and adds the place character. Definitly not fancy or... More

As someone who goes to the theatre on a fairly regular basis, this place is an absolute gem of a find - a friend discovered it via an App - you could very easily blink and miss it, with it's very tiny frontage and innocuous menu posted outside. There is a very small eating area both upstairs and down -... More
