The food here is great. I've been many times and always love the food. The ambiance had changed over various referbs and not necessarily for the better but it's still one of my favourite restaurants for vegetarians. It feels hidden away and the staff are always friendly and make you fee relaxed in no need to rush. My only downside... More

If all vegetarian food tasted this good I would stop eating meat! Friendly staff, great atmosphere, excellent menu and wine list. Food was hot and well presented. Only downside was the hard wooden chairs which left my 60 year old bum numb. Will definitely go again.

I went to The Gate several years ago and was dying to go again to see if I got the same dining experience. I was not disappoint! I'm a big carnivore so having no meat or fish on the plate doesn't happen often, but at this restaurant you don't miss it at all. The food is flavoursome with decent size... More

Went for a dinner with my wife as she prefers veg. The menu looks impressive but were really disappointed by the taste, quality and quantity of its starters, particularly at that price. Ordered the CARCIOFINI and SESAME COATED SMOKED TOFU. Both were not at all good and really small portions more like tasters. The main was quite good in taste... More

After 25 years of being a vegetarian, I (we) finally made it to The Gate for lunch today to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant was quirky, the atmosphere was buzzing, the food and drinks menu were varied, the staff were very attentive, but best of all...the food was AMAZING! I (we) would highly recommend a visit - if you're veggie... More

Having tried lunch at the Islington branch, a friend and I went here for dinner. Not the most salubrious location but once inside it was quite reasonable, though again tables far too close together. Identical menu for food but much more limited drinks with no spirits or cocktails, so obviously aimed on feeding and fleeing market rather than leisurely dining.... More

Booked in as my wife is vegetarian and we were going to the Apollo, right next door. Very quick and courteous service although the waitress forgot to get my beer. Starter great but my main of risotto cake was pretty bland and not upto my expectation.Unfortunately both our meals were not what I'd call hot, just lukewarm. I'd try again... More

I am not a vegetarian but I would return to this restaurant again and again. The food was scrumptious. It was in a bit of an unusual place - behind a sort of modern church, up and down stairs and then in a door next to a hotel or accommodation place. I wondered at this point if it was the... More

This restaurant is quite tucked away, difficult to find especially with the building work that's going on at the moment. We were seated quickly in a long line with very little room between tables, so much so that I nearly set fire to myself squeezing in the the seat and trying not to sit in the dinner of the person...
