I intend to follow up on this to see how this place is. I will re-draft the review accordingly.
Updated from previous review on Monday March 09, 2015
I agree with much of what has been said before by other reviewers.
1stly I asked what was vegan. I don't think they get asked that too often as the gentleman serving me was unsure of what that meant and also of which dishes were compliant. Very sensibly he called on the input of the chef to guide us.
There's 6 dishes in big serving pots. 1 is chilli con carne and another is chicken soup. The 4 remaining soups I was told were vegetarian including 3 that are vegan (one of the soups contained cheddar).
I was then directed to the other part of the counter. There's a mix of salads (e.g. pasta, quinoa, mixed veg) and sandwiches. Some were meat based, some contained cheese (feta by the look of things) and a couple we vegan.
I thus plumped for a soup and salad combo deal. The pumpkin soup tasted just as you would expect pumpkin soup to taste. The quinoa salad was running a low so I was offered a combo of that with the mixed veggies. This was fine as well. At the end I have to say that I was pretty full.
I prefer places that are 100% vegetarian so I would like to be transparent about that (in other words I would rate this place higher out of 5 if it was 100% vego). Where places like come in especially useful for me are when dining with someone who refuses to eat vegetarian. Places such as this offer a reasonable compromise option.
Cons: Not 100% vego
