What an amazing vegetarian/vegan restaurant. The food was delicious,appetising and presented so beautifully even a simple salad was made to look like a work of art. The service was quick,efficient and friendly despite the restaurant being fully booked. I am not vegetarian but could happily eat from their menu every day and not crave meat or fish. And the desserts... More

This is the second time I have visited this restaurant and yet again I was impressed by the delicious food. The flavours and textures of the dishes are fantastic and it is good value for money. The staff are very knowledgeable and are keen to serve. The surroundings are light and airy.

I know some people really want to add meat to every dish, that isn't my case but my boyfriend would eat steak every day. Had some convincing to do but I finally won and we had lunch here. Food has lots of flavours and is nicely presented. Good food and good price (they have some cheap lunch prices so even... More

Each dish was packed full of colour, texture and aroma. I might as well have had an allotment on my plate. The menu was varied, yet not too extensive and the chocolate dessert with the recommended tawny port was simply heaven. The only thing that let it down were the stereotypical 'veggie' men who were wearing shorts and Birkenstocks. It's... More

We went for Sunday lunch, two couples. The choice and presentation of the food was good in general. Most dishes were appetising but the Thai Green Curry was disastrous. Very wishy washy and little taste. The biggest complaint is reserved for the Mezze Starter for two at £22. The quantity of food was totally inadequate and the choice limited. the... More

Went here for my birthday with my family at 9pm. The food was very tasty - particularly the miso Aubergine starter and the thai green curry main. The tomato and lentil soup was fairly average and the feta triangles (main) were a bit dry. Very interesting place - you wouldn't find it easily! It has made me want to go... More

Great food and service. We ate here before a concert at the Apollo which is just around the corner. A very interesting building with a light and airy dining room. One wall and part of the ceiling are of glass which makes the room a very pleasant place to be. I had beetroot tart with a side order of sweet... More

It was such a good find for a vegetarian restaurant! Amazing ambience and more so amazing was the food. We had the meze platter for starters which was very delicious. I could have had the whole platter as a main in itself, had I not been sharing with anyone. For mains I had the Aubergine Schnitzel. I would go go... More

This was my first veggie restaurant in London and I will definitely go back for seconds. The food was creatively prepared, with innovative combinations of flavours that I would never have imagined, and REALLY delicious! My only regret is that I could not have tried more dishes. Another surprise was how plentiful the servings were. I was actually full when... More

I came here with a friend without booking they were really busy but fitted us in. The starters were nice I had lentil pate and for main the beetroot tart which was the best puff pastry I've tried. The Thai curry had lots of flavours and the polenta chips were tasty the cauliflower side I wasn't so impressed with but... More
