This is a vegetarian cafe and though I'm not a vegetarian, I loved this place. It's small so be prepared to queue. But it is worth it. The food is really good with generous portions. I had quiche and salad (£8.50) with three different salads. My son had the curry made with sweet potatoes. It was good too and was... More

Yes the place is a bit small but if you are looking for wholesome food with a taste of grandma cooking this is the place to go. Portions are the perfect size and there is always the possibility of a nutritious treat! I'm definitely coming back!

It's a lovely small vegetarian and Vegan restaurant by Covert Gardens, the food looked great and tasted amazing, good sized portion to fill me up, the price wasn't too bad either, around £8. If your a vegan you should check this place out for sure.

the menu changes daily. I had the thai tofu curry with salad. the curry was served in a bowl on top a bit of brown rice, and salad meant a selection of 4 salads. water is on the table; just grab a glass and serve yourself. because I went on Sunday, there was no queque and in fact they had... More

They had me at the clever name! As vegetarians, we were pleased to find a purely vegetarian restaurant that severed actual food: not just glorified twigs and leaves. All the food was warm, delicious and relatively inexpensive. We had bowls after bowls of the mouthwatering lasagna even at the risk of getting our tongues burnt. The desert was a scrounge... More

I use to go to Food for Thought quite often because I really like that place, sometimes you have to queue for a little bit but the food is really good, vegetarian with a lot of vegan options. Prices from £4 to £10 for a whole meal with salad and main course. All the main courses are from £5 to... More

Nice atmosphere, cramped interior and a bit chaotic but all adds to the charm. You can chose between 3 different vegetarian dishes with or without rice. The food was simple and tasty. You eat healthy and you don't feel heavy after lunch. Big portions so was unable to fit in a pudding! Great value for money!

A great little restaurant to drop in to for a quick hunger fix when on the move in this very busy part of London, especially good because it has gluten free options for coeliacs so my daughter who is coeliac did not have to make do with a boring salad, will definitely go there again, the price, the atmosphere, and...

Me and my spouse ate here. I took a stew with salad and my spouse a pie. Neither the stew nor the pie tasted good. Typical boring cantina food. I did not finish my stew since the flavour was so boring. Good thing since my spouse's stomache broke down a couple hours later.

A great stop for healthy food in the middle of London. Not far from the British Museum. Not fancy atmosphere, but tasty food serves fast.
