Delicious - Edit

One of the first places I tried after going vegan, so was a great introduction. Menu is pretty diverse and the desserts are exceptional. Lovely place. Would recommend booking though as it’s pretty popular on the weekend/evening.

Great food, shame about the service - Edit

I went for the lunchtime buffet here and I must say while the selection was small, it was delicious and you could tell the ingredients were top quality. There was a nice variety.

My gripe with it was that the staff were very standoffish and not overly friendly - they were perfectly competent and not rude, but not overly welcoming either, and I felt like how much I took from the buffet was being monitored, which I hate. There was also no sweet option for the buffet.

Given all that, and considering I travelled 1.25 hours to get to this place only to be met with that attitude, I wouldn't come back, but concede the food was great and the a la carte menu looked great too (atmosphere was a bit lacking and overly formal for me as well)

Pros: Taste, Selection

Cons: Location and ambience, Staff

best buffet , ok dinner - Edit

Their lunch buffet is soooo delicious and well priced. Visited them a good few times and decided to finally go for dinner. We were disappointed because the food was very bland! So much potential though as dishes sounded interesting.
Will be back for lunch buffet but not for dinner!

Pros: Eat as much as you like at their lunch buffet., take away option

Cons: can be very busy it's a small space!

The best!! - Edit

This is my favourite vegan restaurant in London! The food is just too good! I absolutely adore their plantain and the parsnip mash is something else! It gets super busy here but that’s expected with the quality of food.

Pros: food

Cons: really busy

Very cheap, but very crowded - Edit

We were here for lunch a couple of months ago (Summer).
The buffet is very cheap (and it is all you can eat), and the dishes were very nice. But (compared with other vegan buffet restaurants we've been to) there weren't thàt many options in the buffet.
The place was very crowded, loud, tables and chairs very close together. Even hard to just move around.
The young lady serving drinks wasn't really welcoming and seemed annoyed.
It is a far stretch away from the center, but we combined it with a visit to vegan shop Greenbay, just next door.

Pros: very cheap, all you can eat

Cons: crowded, not so friendly, very far away

forget loving hut,,,,legit lunch buffet - Edit

Forget loving hut ! Nothing against them, but I was surprised and refreshed that there were no Vegan junk food items. The lunch buffet items are all whole food creations such as Asian stirfry, a chickpea Indian dish, and a hearty, savory cooked quinoa creation. Plenty of raw items as well. Nothing was oversalted. I ate two full plates without feeling gross afterwards or guilty. Recommend, especially if you're on the go.

healthy - Edit

Managed to grab a £6 box at vegfest and thought it was pretty good.
Some great salad and vegan quiche although a little dressing would have lifted it. I always have a soft spot for people offering healthy vegan food and think you should visit if you get a chance.

Pros: healthy, 100%, stafg

Great! - Edit

One of the places I would never hesitate to go to. Been to their lunch buffet and the food are very delicious and varied to choose from. A La Carte menu is also very tempting with many dishes, plus the ever changing specials. Very fairly priced, always busy, so def book ahead for dinner. Happy to take any friend there.

Pros: Great food, Fair price

Cons: Very busy so book for dinner

great food and service - Edit

Arrived on Sunday evening shortly before opening but the staff let us in early. The menu had a good range of vegan starters, mains and desserts. Food and service were excellent and the restaurant filled up quickly. Price was about £50 for two - will definitely be visiting again.

Nice staff, lovely food - Edit

We went here after stopping in at the vegan supermarket Greenbay just a few doors down - we arrived at 5.15pm and realised that it doesn't open until 5.30 but a staff member (possibly the owner) came out and told us we were welcome to come and sit down while they were getting ready. They have a main menu and specials board, all vegan and quite a few wheat free and some gluten-free options. I had the special chickpea, pinto bean and okra curry, which tasted more stew like than curry, but very tasty. My husband had the mushroom and spinach raclette which was amazing. I had the ice cream (99% sure it's the Food Heaven brand) and my husband had the pancake. Everything we had was delicious and all the other food we saw coming out looked great. The service was very attentive and we'd definitely come back. Even at 5.30 it was almost immediately getting busy so I'd recommend booking.

Pros: Great food, Friendly service

Cons: Relatively small (booking probably an idea)

Decent choice - Edit

Decent choice for lunch buffet, very busy during lunchtime. I liked the food, however the ambience and service were just ok. Myself and my partner tried all the dishes on offer, and left happy however both couldn't digest it for hours. Not sure if it was the oil used, but the food was heavy on the stomach.

Wonderful whole-foods vegan cuisine - Edit

We visited 222 Vegan Cuisine for the lunch buffet and arrived a few minutes before they opened at 12:00. The chef/owner (Ben) himself came to the door to tell us they were setting up and it would only be a few minutes. The restaurant is a short walk from West Kensington Underground station and is small, casual and impeccably clean. The buffet (9:50 pounds when we visited) had 5 different salads and 4 hot dishes along with brown rice. What impressed us was that everything was made with whole foods, unlike many vegan restaurants that serve a lot of fake meat and cheese. The buffet was continually topped up to keep the dishes fresh and Ben made the rounds of the dining area, chatting with diners and taking orders for optional drinks and desserts. By the time we left, every seat in the small restaurant was full with a mixed crowd of all ages and ethnicities. It was obvious that many diners came to lunch from nearby businesses and medical clinics. This will be our go-to restaurant in London, even though it's on the opposite side of London to where we stay with family.

Pros: Whole foods vegan cuisine, Well-priced lunch buffet, Friendly and engaging staff and owner

Cons: Small and gets crowded, as it's so popular

Very busy when we arrived (on a Thursday evening at 8:15), glad we booked in advance or we would have had a long wait. Although the food was good, the menu was a bit limited for my taste, but that's just me and the portions were on the small side. Service could have been better but I think it was the waitress' first night! Would definitely go back, but not before I've tried the other vegan restaurants London has to offer

Great buffet: healthy, varied, tasty - Edit

A totally vegan dining experience. It's a small restaurant but has a great atmosphere. The staff and customers obviously love the place and the food is great. Not just well prepared from good ingredients, but cooked or combined in interesting ways.

Also, the girls sitting next to me just came in for vegan chocolate cake, which looked brilliant!!

Pros: tasty, healthy, interesting menu

Cons: slightly small space (but great atmosphere)

Best Vegan Food in London - Edit

My family and I ate here for dinner based on the many positive reviews on Happy Cow, and it definitely lived up to its stellar reputation. The food is phenomenal. For the apps we recommend the pita dips, for entrees get either the seitan stroganoff or the oyster mushroom spinach raclette and try a Classico smoothie. The 222 veggie burger is also good, though we did not like the homemade ketchup. There is an extensive dessert menu and the vegan ice creams are heavenly. Restaurant is small, so it is best for couples and small parties. Gets crowded on weekends so there could be a wait.

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Desserts, Selection raw foods

Cons: Slow Service, Small Restaurant

Honestly just awesome! - Edit

The buffet has a mix of raw salads to cooked curries and the flavors are good.The apple crumble looked amazing and tasted delicious.The onlt shame is that there are many choices at the buffet.

Pros: Good quality all-vegan food., Desserts are stunning., Prices are very reasonable.

Cons: The buffet does not have a huge variety., The atmosphere is not as good as big restaurants.

Excellent high quality food, and consistency! - Edit

I've been here a few times and the service has always been excellent, the food excellent, and the quality of the food very consistent! You know you will get the same high quality food when you go here time after time! I highly recommend this to everyone. The food is not only delicious but very healthy. At lunchtime they do a buffet, and in evenings they do a set menu. The desserts (separate to the buffet), are amazing! Well worth a try if you are not in the area often!
