Review: We visited this restaurant through a special offer and got 2 main courses and a glass of prosecco for GBP 9. As a result of this we had to book a week in advance to get a table, they were not picking up their phone when I called to say we were running a bit late and the restaurant was very busy. On first glance, we thought the menu looked unimaginative when compared with the exotic/ creative choices at other vegan restaurants. However we were really impressed with the food. For starters we had a tofu and cucumber salad with mint - sounds simple but was very tasty and refreshing. The texture of the tofu was wonderful. Our second starter was a squash salad - again simple but very good quality squash, and well textured and balanced. For mains we had a seitan and mushroom dish - this was delicious. The seitan was probably the best we have had. The aubergine and potato cake was a bit oily. Unfortunately the dessert wasn't up to the standards of the starters and mains. There was only a selection of ice cream and sorbets for vegans and some of the sorbets lacked taste, with the exception of the lemon which was very sharp/zesty. Portion sizes are fairly small - you need two courses to fill yourself up minimum. Service was excellent - we had a well informed, polite waitress who helped us select our dishes.
