Since my last visit some time ago the menu has changed and there is now so much on the menu that appealed to me more, I was keen to go back. The old favourites remain and I had the tried and tested burger of the day with chips and salad which was enormous and really tasty. For dessert I had a wonderful rasberry and dark chocolate truffle, which was like a chocolate mousse torte with a rasberry coulis. It was so delicious I really need to go back soon and have a another piece!

Other points to make - the menu is now much more suited to vegans as well as vegetarians. It's still very busy and the seats are placed very close together so it can be rather noisy but the food is definitely worth the visit.

We visited Mildred's on Feb 2013 based on our hotel's recommendation, and we were not disappointed! We chose a hamburger and a wok, and the food was delicious (suitable for vegans, too). The place itself is rather small and cramped, and quite noisy as well, so expect a casual dining experience. We went there early and got a table straight away, but later there seemed to be a long waiting list. Don't worry, the food is worth the wait!

We visited Mildred's on the advice from tripadvisor comments. We were blown away. The meze was amazing plus every thing else we chose was 10/10. From the bread to the desert these guys absolutely hit the mark. We aren't vegetarians, we just love good food and the tastes here were fantastic. Not a big place so expect a wait but it's worth it.

Enjoyed the food at Mildred's but the cramped table layout and the slow service meant this felt more like a cafe than a resaturant. Having said that they seated us much quicker than they originally told us we would have to wait (less than 10 minute as opposed to 45 minutes). Had the soup of the day which was spiced carrot, sweet potato and coconut milk, smoked tofu and apple sausages and then vegan banoffee pie. Soup was good and sausages with sides were tasty, but banoffee pie was a miss. Sister had dumplings to start which she said were great, curry, which had too much rice and not enough curry sauce making it dry, and fruit crumble for desert which she said was delicious. I'd go again but I'm not in a rush to do so.

Mildreds is a great little restaurant in a small road in soho. its easy to miss so go up Lexington street (to no 45) its at the top end. you can get real good food for vegans & vegetarians (most are organic produce) & their chocolate cake is to die for. as a vegan, chocolate cake is pretty much off the menu in every place i eat - there is a choice of vegan meals for all tastes & even if not vegan/vegetarian - go on give it a try. it can get very busy so go early (12.00) or late as lunch time its heaving due to the popularity of the place. you can do a take away & go sit in the park (ask for a fork to take out). its very clean & the seating might be a bit cramped at times but its so worth the effort. have a glass of wine while your waiting for your food or a smoothie & soak up the scene & people watch. its one of my favourite restaurants when in london & i NEVER miss out when in the city & even take 10 pieces of chocolate cake home which they wrap up so well in containers so i can get them home in one piece. its closed sunday & opens midday monday - saturday.
