“Amazing choice of vegan dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Tibits is a vegetarian buffet where food is paid for by weight. The evening I went it was quite busy but there were still a number of tables to choose from.

Everything on the buffet was vegan - apparently they do this every 10 days - and obviously I wanted to try some of almost everything. Salads were fresh and had nice dressings and there was a wide choice of hot dishes.

Of particular note: Okra Tempura; Onion Rings; Mediterranean Salad, all the dishes with tofu in (and there were a few); the Japanese Noodles and Rice; Falafel; Hummus; Babaganouche ...

The only problem with trying everything was that my plate weighed in at 1.325kg and cost £34.50. With a glass of carrot juice and a chocolate rooibos chai tea I was not far off fourty quid - quite a lot for a single serving.

I'm not bitter - it was all delicious, but next time I might no eat quite so much!

Dear Jonathan,
We are absolutely over the moon to hear how much you enjoyed your recent visit to tibits.
Due to huge demand we started organizing our 'Vegan Days' where everything on the Foodboat is 100% free of any animal involvement.
We still have two more to go in July 18/28 and then August 7/17/27.
Hope we will be seeing you soon again:)
Kindest regards,
Magdalena

“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I ate in this restaurant a few weeks ago with friends and I found the place very cool. It is an unusual restaurant. You should take the food that you prefer with a buffet. In the middle of the restaurant there is a huge table and the customers can take what they want.
Pasta, rice, salade, potatoes, falafel, bread, fruit...there is everything!
The price is 26 £ for kilo. I think that a normal dish is around 450 gr , so 11.5£ per person.
I suggest with restaurant to young people or to someone that don't mind to have a perfect and present customer service.

“Very nice place for vegan food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Im pleased with my visit to Tibits, the waitress was nice and friendly and showed me how it works as it was my first time in a Tibits restaurant, you grab a plate, put the food you want on your plate, get your plate weighed then pay. The food looked great, nice options to choose from, and easy to see which ones are vegan or not. The food tasted great. It was a little expensive, a plate of vegan curry was around £8 pound, but it's worth it as it tastes great and it's healthy.

Dear Jack,
Hello and many thanks for your kind words.
Even though we are mainly vegetarian we listened carefully to our customers requests and about a year ago we set up our 'Vegan Days'. These are happening every tenth and everything on the buffet is 100% free of any animal involvement, starting at 11:30am.
Keep those days in your diary:
July 8/18/28
August 7/17/27
So you never miss our on vegan extravaganza!
Once more - thank you for your lovely feedback and we are hoping to be seeing you at tibits soon again:)
Warmest regards,
Magdalena

“Fresh, healthy and tasty, just what it says on the tin!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

A little gem tucked away from the hectic Regent St.

Not your normal buffet place with a great selection of fresh items to choose from.

A ideal place to meet with friends for lunch!

“Interesting way to do buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The average plate should cost around £8-10, mine was £13 and I didn't think I'd picked that much stuff! And I'd managed to pick up a small plate by accident.
Great selection of food, and it's good to know as a veggie I can pick from anything at a buffet and not just a small selection. Everything I had seemed to be freshly prepared and was yummy.
Definitely worth a look in if you are in the area, and great to see something like this busy at lunch time.
In case you were wondering you pay a set price per 100g of food (lunch and dinner are 2 different rates), and you fill your plate with what you'd like to eat, take it to the bar, order drinks and pay. If you want more you have to go round again and do the same.
