Have visited the Gate Hammersmith a number of times with mixed views but tonight's visit means I would not return. The food was average, certainly nothing special compared to other vegetarian restaurants but the service was the clincher. Starter and main courses arrived so quickly one after the other with barely time to take a breath and enjoy our wine.... More

The meals on the menu are so well thoughts and curated that even a meat eater would appreciate them!!! The place itself is also pretty unique. Good for any type of occasions really.

I always wanted to come to The Gate but for some reasons, I never could make it...but a cold evening looking for something to eat, I decided to give it a try with my wife, well......I am glad we did, from the first minute we walked in until we left, everything was perfect. The food, the drinks and the services.... More

One of the best veggie restaurants. Had the Dragon salad which was a work of art and delicious. The staff were very friendly and efficient and we will definitely be making repeat visits.

Fabulous lunch with my vegetarian daughter. If vegetarian food could be this good all the time I would definitely convert. So light and fresh, not the dairy heavy fare you often get. We had the sharing platter which is a little taster of about 6/7 dishes. All superb and tasty. Augbergine and the Heritage beetroot tart mains gorgeous. Will definitely... More

Went here before a gig at the Apollo and it was was excellent. Super convenient location from the station/venue, and we arrived at 6 pm for when they opened so were some of the first served of the night. It's cute where it's tucked away, and the decor inside is lovely. Staff were efficient and helpful, and the food was... More

We came here before a concert. We had got to Apollo early and called The Gate to see if we they can take us. They said yes and we were there in 5min. The menu was very appealing and the meal was excellent. The waiter helped in choosing the starters and the mains. We had to leave and did not... More

We enjoyed our meal here immensely even though none of us are vegetarian. A nice space, larger than you expect from the entrance. Food was colourful, presented well, tasted delicious and there were plenty of choices. Unfortunately, as we were there for a quick pre-show meal we did not have the time or for space for dessert, but we will... More

I had two friends visiting from Italy so I wanted to take them somewhere nice to eat. Unfortunately The Gate was a disappointment. We ordered starters and mains, bread and wine. The food took forever to arrive. We had to ask the waiter for our bread basket again as 40mins had already passed and it hadn't arrived. After the starters... More

So first and foremost, this is indeed a safe bet if you're going to the Hammersmith Odeon of my youth, the Carling Apollo of my middle years or the Eventim Apollo of my approaching dotage. First time visitors: just go through that gate, turn right in the corridor and go through the metal door that looks like it's the science... More
