Great food, flavours and textures fantastic. Service very good. The cocktails are delicious. It's absolutely brilliant if you need gluten free dishes or vegan. Non vegetarians needn't worry, the food is so delicious you don't miss having meat. My only slightly negative comment would be the queue for the one toilet. For the number of diners in the packed restaurant,... More

Visited here twice in the last year and have been treated to excellent vegetarian food both times. The starter and dessert platters are delicious and reasonably priced. As a non-veggie there was never a moment where I missed meat!

The surroundings are nice, but you are sat very close. The food was very nice we both had halumi with harissa to start, I had the tortilla... More

I generally dont like giving negative reviews. But i expected much more from this restaurant. Been here few months ago. Food was okay and price was average. But the Place was over crowded and short of staffs i believe. They kept running all over....not knowing what happened to my order. We waited nearly 45 minutes just for a salad and... More

My wife - 'How about a vegetarian restaurant for a couples' night out?' Me - 'Really, do we have to?' My wife 'It's gotten excellent reviews and besides, it's right down the road from the Apollo theatre.' Me - (sighing heavily) 'Ok'. :( Well, joke was clearly on me as we had A GREAT MEAL at the Gate Hammersmith. Truly...and... More

We ate here on Saturday, before a concert. We're both non-veggies - my husband is a real carnivore, but he enjoyed his meal so much that he didn't miss the lack of meat and even said that it was one of the best meals he's ever had in a restaurant. High praise from an excellent cook. I'm coeliac, so was... More

It just shows what some imagination and skill can do for veggie food. One of the best plates of food I've had. Take a carnivore here and they won't miss the meat! Delicious!

Three of our party of 4 were meat eaters and none of us missed the meat! The beetroot tart is yummy and the aubergine teriyaki is imaginative and tasty. The halloumi starter was great if a little on the small side and the asparagus starter was cooked to perfection with a delicious sauce. It is a buzzy place, not pretentious.... More

This is a fantastic vegetarian restaurant. Great food , great staff, tremendous selection. My only criticism is the proximity of neighbouring tables...our last visit felt like we were at the same table, the gentleman had a voice that carried making it difficult to have a conversation ourselves and to ignore his!
