Being vegetarian I have been meaning to try this restaurant for some time. So at last tried it this week and was very pleasantly surprised by the excellent veggie food. Quite a variety of choices and really tasty. The chef knows his onions. Good amounts given and soon full. Should not have had so much garlic bread, but it was so delicious. Nice little place, could do with a little update to decor but a cosy place with a lovely aspect on to the Thames. We will be going back as the food is very tasty and lots of variety. If you like veggie food go try it.

The menu is well varied and the food was clearly well prepared and very fresh. The chef obviously knows what he/she is doing! Also very clean and really well located by the river. The only thing that stops me giving this a 5* review si that the prices are a bit steep, but then considering prices in other restaurants where the food isn't so freshly prepared I suppose it isn't unexpected.

A really great range of vegetarian and vegan food that still appealed to my non-vegetarian family. Location is fantastic with doors opening onto a river view. A haven of tranquility amongst the bustle of Kingston riverside. Cuisine ranges from staples such as veg lasagne, nut roast and garlic bread, to a huge specials board with unusual choices such as African curry. Good wine choice, although beware the English Golden Apple wine really is apple wine! Staff are a bit grumpy! But efficient. Worth booking as it gets busy!

Our second visit and as like the first time, the food was very nice. It's nice as a vegetarian not to have a "choice" of Goat's cheese, or....err not!

Great location looking out over the river and always nice to support an independent restaurant.

Took home 1 of the take away boxes as well to try at home...not yet had, but I'm sure this will be very nice.

I would push this up to 5 star if only the waiter (I'm assuming the owner?) bothered smiling at all.It appears to be an inconvenience that we are in his restaurant

I regularly eat in this restaurant and use the take away service because they serve a huge range of healthy vegetarian dishes at a reasonable price. As a vegetarian you're normally reduced to an over-priced rissoto or pizza, whereas here there is a huge range of vegetarian dishes from around the world. The restaurant is very homely and the service is friendly, and if the weather is nice you can sit outside by the river.I take my friends there when they come to Kingston and even the meat eaters seem to like it.
