Nice, but expensive

Milgi is a really cute, alternative place and has a lot of comfy sofas in the front which is nice. It also has a nice outdoor area for the summer and a yurt outside, which I haven't been in other than to have a look.
The food is good and they do have vegan options, but not everything on their menu can be made vegan. The portion sizes aren't huge and the food is fairly expensive in light of this.
They don't have many vegan desserts (for a veggie place). There is always something, but again many are vegetarian where I do not understand why they couldn't just make them vegan.
The cocktails are great though and one of the main reasons for me to come here. They are expensive, but not more so than they would be in other places and they are beautifully presented. If you order a fruity cocktail, it will have fresh fruit in it rather than that weird puree stuff some places use. The cocktail menu is great and they have a lot of variety and great flavours to choose from. All the ones I've had have been great.
The staff can be a little unfriendly. I went with a large group of girls to eat one time, but we weren't out for drinks, so most of us ordered water with our food and the waitress was noticeably annoyed about this, which I don't consider good service. And all of us ordered food and quite a few of us desserts, so it wasn't like they were doing badly off us!
There have been other similar instances of staff unfriendliness, just making you feel a bit uncomfortable or unwelcome. This is the main thing that has put me off of this place, although I've gone a lot as I used to live very close to it.
Great food and cocktails, Nice alternative place, Outside area
Not very central, Staff can be unfriendly, Expensive for the portion sizes
