Lovely, relaxed atmosphere in this basement café. Very friendly staff, who offer a taste of the dishes if you can't decide or, like me, wanted to know how hot the curry was! You don't need to be a Buddhist to go there.

Was impressed with the lovely atmosphere as soon as I walked in. I'd thought about trying meditation for a while. And this centre gave me a good introduction to it. Very reasonably priced. And very relaxing.

After discussing meditation with a friend she recommended the buddist centre. I said i wasn't really into religion but she said it didn;t matter to just go.They have rooms just to try out meditation techniques. Friendly people in the centre and a really peaceful vibe.

This is a very relaxing and friendly, welcoming place to visit. They have so many different events and a great bookshop, including second hand books at decent prices. There is also a great vegetarian and vegan restaurant. Well located. Nothing to complain about at all.

A friend and I dropped in here whilst wandering through the Northern Quarter.....it's ok. Cute shop, nice atmosphere and clean. Nobody really seemed to say hello? It seemed like the kind of place that you have to know a bit about (or someone!) before you...More
