Seriously yummy flavoursome veg food and a great ambience. I am not a vegetarian personally but this cooking really left me satisfied whereas I do normally always feel that vegetarian restaurant food is slightly lacking. The portion sizes are also really generous!

Being perfectly located in Covent Garden, this is a lovely little place to have lunch. I was there slightly after peak time, so it wasn't as crowded as I had expected it to be after reading the reviews here on HappyCow. Service was super friendly and my meal, a veggie stew, quite tasty albeit of the very homemade, simple style.... More

While the accommodations are a bit cozy, you can't beat the comfort food and the experience. Such interesting dishes. Of all the places we ate in Great Britain, this was the one we talked about most when we got home to Canada.

This place hasn't changed much since I first visited in 1980. Always packed as there are only a few tables. Therefore very popular as a take-out. If you want to get hold of a table, wait 15 minutes. If you take-out, find a nice spot on Covent Garden Piazza to enjoy the most delicious food. Everything on the menu is... More

This place had a line outside of it so I figured it had to be good but it was great. I am not a vegetarian but every bite was amazing and almost tasted like pizza. I got the butternut squash and fennel special with the beet and olive salad. Amazing!

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
