Respond to Review of The Forest Food Lounge
Review: I've been to The Forest several times, each time hoping that last time I'd mistakenly ordered one of their less inspiring options, and that this time I'd really enjoy my meal. Sadly that didn't happen. It's a shame, because I really wanted to like this place. I've tasted about 8 meals (sharing with friends), and each one left something to be desired. The flavour just wasn't there, the portion sizes were often too small and I felt they did a very poor job of showcasing just how diverse and tasty a vegan diet can be. I was actually embarrassed because I'd brought some omni friends for lunch and they were less than impressed. I find it frustrating and incredibly disappointing that one of the only restaurants in Brisbane that I can bring friends curious about veganism to has such mediocre food. It's perplexing they don't try harder. Perhaps it's a lack of competition? Whatever the reason, I hope more inspiring and creative vegan restaurants open in Brisbane soon - the more down right tasty and well made vegan options people are exposed to, the better for the cause - this half hearted approach is counterproductive.
