My expectations were high as I read a lot of good reviews and the interior itself looked really nice and sharp. I expected great gourmet food..and got nothing of the sort.
My dish was essentially salty rice with some lentils. It could have looked fancy, but tasted like something one would make from leftovers. My boyfriend ordered battered tofu with chips, which was good, but it should have cost around 4 pounds for what it was. There was no ketchup or other condiments to compliment his meal.
The place does not know what to do with vegans..which is a bit odd considering it calls itself vegetarian. One of the dishes was topped with egg; when we asked what can we have instead of it if we choose vegan option the waitress responded they will simply take the egg away, without replacing it with anything. After ordering a gin sponge cake with ice cream our cake arrived drizzled with green cucumber water, which was supposed to replace the dairy ice cream..how dreadful. Even though they did have vegan ice cream on the menu! My boyfriend bargained to get it eventually, but it is not the kind of treatment I would expect from a vegetarian establishment.
The portions were very small too- so much so that we went to have another meal afterwards. I can only wonder why there are so many positive reviews here, including those from vegan users..maybe it used to have a different owner or menu?
Overall, it was a waste of both time and money.
