Just terrible

When we turned up it was empty which is fine but service was very poor. Once we finally got drinks and ordered the food and it came it was oily and bland. The tofu was the worst I have ever tasted and the restuarant was freezing. The kitchen which I glanced at made me feel a little ill with the... read more

We visited Riverside Vegetaria on the eve of valentines day. It was around 4 o'clock so we didn't know if they would be serving food as it was too late for lunch and too early for dinner. There wasn't a single other person in there, but this didn't put us off, our very own private sitting ☺️ From the moment... More

Finally visited this inviting little restaurant, but were disappointed by unexciting food served with iceberg lettuce and grated carrot, which should have been left in the 90s. Otherwise lovely staff and great location but won't be returning, sadly.

Super spot on the river at Kingston, pleasant staff and prompt service. The food was decent quality, well cooked and tasty.The tempura vegetable starter with chilli sauce was nice and lightly cooked, and the main course curries had good flavour and content. Perhaps we didn't order well, but the food seemed a little dated, old school vegetarian. This area of... More

I was taken here for lunch the other day, what a treat! The choice of food was dazzling. I settled for a vege lasagne which was delicious. This was followed by scrumptious chocolate pudding. The weather was miserable, but this did not detract from the river view. The staff were pleasant and helpful, all in all a great experience. I... More

Popped in to this riverside restaurant at lunchtime on impulse without a booking and was welcomed by proprietor and staff and given a table within a couple of minutes near the window overlooking the River Thames. Other patrons are a mix of couples, families, students, singles and silver fox. There are tables outside by the river but with cold weather... More

I've grown up in kingston all my life and I go back here for lunch again and again. The owner of the restaurant is incredibly gracious and lovely, and you come away feeling so well looked after. Food is excellently seasoned, portioned well and intriguing. Not sure what these negative reviews are about - or whether they even went to... More

Being vegetarian, I feel some kind of defensive loyalty to vegetarian restaurants; I want to give them five stars, as if to say "See? See how good veggie food is?!" And there's plenty of good things to say about Riverside Vegetaria. It has a huge menu (plus a large specials board) of veggie and vegan dishes from around the world... More

I went to this restaurant as my Dad is vegetarian and having read the reviews thought it was worth trying out. Starters were nice enough (though they didn't have my first choice available) but mains were not great, we had masalai dosa and nut roast and they weren't what we would expect. They also forgot my smoothie and then tried... More
