Respond to Review of Kingsland. Healthy Vegan Restaurant
by birdcage_al

Review: i've been coming to kingsland since living in canberra during early 2000's. back then, i visited waaay too often and sampled most of the menu, several times. i've since left canberra, and upon every returning visit i've gone back to kingsland. this visit has seen new management change just recently - the new owner is lovely, very friendly + a cup of green tea while awaiting my takeaway. apparently the decor has changed, though my memory doesn't serve well as to what it looked like last time. now it's tiled, clean looking - personally it's not to my taste, i prefer 'warmer' restaruants, cosier - but then i don't come here for the decor. the food, is where its at. it's great, really exceptional, and that hasn't changed over the years. i've been to a lot of vege places around the world + still, very little surpasses kingsland. i enjoy the mock meat, that's their speciality. i've taken countless meat eaters there, and they still discuss their visit to this date, amazed at how great it was. this visit i took the roast duck and honey chicken. both were very good. the roast duck has definitely improved since my visit years ago, when it was very dry and crusty on the edges. this time it was back to good form. price wise; they have mid week discounts. i'm visiting from london, so out of touch with current prices - my mains were $13 each and yes, i thought this was a little steep. but then again i'm not familiar with the competition AND i don't mind paying knowing the food is exceptional. so lots of positives; from someone who is typically very critical! and this is honestly the only place i've continued visiting for 10 years!!
