It's not in the best of areas, being a bit outside of the city centre, and Allison St isn't the prettiest either, but it's definitely worth your while seeking this place out because of the great Vegetarian food. We came for lunch and had a burger, which was topped with curried cauliflower and served with wonderful potato wedges and a salad. Everything was yummy, and the staff were superb! The desserts looked fab, too!!

Really cool place. Very friendly staff offering reccomendations etc. Our waiter reccomended the arancini starter which I was very happy he did so. It was so good. Had the burger for main. I thought it resembled an onion bhaji. But a very nice onion bhaji! I was very happy with it.

A couple of things need improving to make it a 5 star place though for me ...
1. The chips. The chips were poor! Really poor to be honest. If I had cooked those chips myself I'd have been disappointed. Just needed a bit longer cooking time! ....
2. The choice of beer. Get some craft beers in eg Beavertown.

I have been coming here for years and the food is always great. I like the fact that they have a small standard menu but that the specials board changes regularly.

They are accommodating to vegans and really know their stuff.

I also like that it is now licensed and that you can get local beer to go with your food!

I went there to treat a friend who is vegetarian with high hopes but only to be very disappointed. The main course I ordered was the burger which was ok. Chips were not well fried, a bit soggy. Can't comment on the curry my friend ordered since I didn't have that. But the cheese cake was a nightmare. The base was so hard that it wouldn't be cut by a knife. No sure what it was made of. Won't go back again.
