I discovered this place, whilst walking back from a day at the beach, on the outside, looks quite dainty and intriguing. The inside decor is quite cute, and charming. The annoying thing about this place, was everytime someone opened the door, all the bells and jangly things that were tied to the door, would shudder really loud, so kinda made you jump if you had your back to the door.
I really, really wanted to like this place, but sorry guys the food was just tasteless. I had the vegetable jalfrezi which was accompanied with rice and a chappati. There was no taste what so ever, the jalfrezi seemed to have too much cumin seeds added to it, and the rice was just terrible, in fact I've had better from a microwavable packet. I only picked the potatoes from the food and had a glass of water. My sister wasnt too happy with her meal either, which was jacket potatoe, cheese and beans. The cheese was obv vegan and it left a lot to be desired.
If your palate is used to tasty food and good value for money, then I suggest you save yourself a visit from this place. Whilst Im not vegan, I do like vegetarian dishes, and im willing to try new things, as long as the food tastes of something at least, rather than feeling like your chewing a piece of rotten cardboard.
Overall it wasnt cheap and I was dissapointed that no-one had asked if we were happy, or if there was anything else that we needed, Its something Im used to when eating at any kind of establishment. Even when we sent our plates virtually full, no-one had asked for feedback.
When we left this place, we just went somewhere else for proper food. It was disheartening that we had wasted our money.
Whilst I appreciate everyone that works at this place are volunteers and good for all of you, that give your time to help others, unfortuantely places like this will only die out. Meat is on this earth for a reason and its there to be eaten. :) It would be nice if the resources and money could be saved and spent on something else like poverty.
