Firstly- you pay for your food by weight not what you actually order. Take note!

My girlfriend kindly brought us both here for my birthday this year. The food was fantastic. It's a buffet so you get to help yourself. Luckily it was vegan night when we went (we are both vegan) and so we could choose literally anything we liked. I couldn't remember the last time I had that privilege! Unfortunately because of this I piled my plate up full of a bit of everything. You pay by weight, and despite this I was expecting my food to come to about £10. It ended up being £20 for 1 moderately piled plate of food. Very overpriced- so be conservative with how much you order, trust me. It's a shame you have to be though as the food was very tasty and there was a lot of choice, like 40 different things to try.

Just be warned that I'm pretty sure they know that vegans rarely get that much choice, and so hike the prices up. What's more the food wasn't actually that hot, so was a shame. Best to probably start with a small plate as a starter to guess the cost of what the 'main' would be, that way you won't end up paying £20 for something that should be half that.

Be sure to try out the Booja-Booja hunky punky cashew-chocolate ice creams they have in the freezer by the tills. Delicious.

Tip- Self service water tap opposite the bar by the stairs- help yourself.

If you have a healthy appetite this restaurant can prove to be expensive. The food is very good and it has an agreeable ambience but a full plate can quite easily cost £15 as food is charged by weight

Dear C.G.
Hello and many thanks for taking time to review your recent visit to tibits London:)
We couldn't be happier to hear that you enjoyed our food and the restaurant.
At the same time we are very saddened that you consider us expensive.
We think our system of 'paying by weight' is a fair one and allows us to avoid, shameful these days, food wastage.
Here at tibits we strongly believe no food should ever be wasted and weighing system proves itself to be a great way to avoid it..
Prices of tibits' food are dictated by a lot of factors. The most important are freshness of our dishes prepared on the premises, by our own fair hands, using seasonal and where possible organic and local produce.
Hope this will help you understand better our concept and values.
We are hoping to see you at tibits soon again!
Warmest regards,
Magdalena

Our second time there, wouldnt go anywhere else in town. Veggie food superb all cooked to a very high standard. The blonde Polish lady and her team are a class act, nothing is ever too much trouble. So keep going everybody you do a great job and certainly know what a customer is!

Veg buffet, super fresh and tasty. Great ambiance and I enjoyed the selection of teas. The Roobios Chai was delicious. It is a bit informal as it is self service and they charge you by weight. I had a small bit of 4/5 of the selections and it came to $12. Not cheap but worth the experience as it is in Central.

I have visited Tibits on many occasions; in a couple, with friends and with large family groups. The reasons we keep coming back: Food is always fresh and tasty with enough variety to suit everyone's tastes. Drinks are lovely, especially the fresh juices. Plenty of vegan options (including dessert - yay!). Buffet food boat means you can always try a little something new. The green bean salad - divine! The staff are always pleasant and helpful and don't make you feel pressured to rush even when the restaurant is busy. The atmosphere is relaxed and child friendly, especially the downstairs seating area. The prices are reasonable when all the above is taken into account. We love Tibits and always look forward to another visit.
