Respond to Review of Raw

Review: I decided to visit Raw for a special occasion and booked a table for three in advance. Raw was very easy to find, a short walk from Bayswater underground station. On arrival we were greeted at the door and led through two corridors. The interior design was very nice, all black and cream. When we got in to the restaurant, the place was dead, just the three of us. This was a thursday night. There was no music when we arrived, but soon after we sat down an array of relaxing music was played. We ordered drinks and starters, which arrived shortly after. The Passionfruit and almond mocktail was delicious and the carrot and coconut juice an unusual but tasty drink. Our starters of homemade hummus and sweet potato bread arrived. This was delicious, however there was only four very small slices of bread to one massive bowl of hummus. When our mains arrived we were all excited as the display of them was immaculate, however the taste did not satisfy. My boyfriend ordered the quinoa and mushroom burger and my mum the aubergine curry. The burger was bland and no flavour, my boyfriend mentioning he just tasted the bread and my mums curry was like soup, very runny. My main was dissapointing, I ordered the daikon ravioli, expecting a pasta ravioli filled with carrot and date pesto, I got a layer of pesto topped with some sort of sea cumumber which I later found out was Daikon, a member of the radish family. This was not clearly explained to me in the menu, and was not ravioli at all. My main was exchanged without questions as I did not like the ravioli, I had the collard wraps as a replacement. This was shocking, three cabbage leaves wrapped up with tiny carrot sticks, pepper and a cherry tomato inside. We were very dissapointed and asked for the bill straight away and left. We also got the idea that the restaurant was vegan for the wrong reasons, more for people with allergies than the main reasons of animal cruelty, environmental issues and world hunger.
