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

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!

Posh but a bit busy - Edit

On arrival all tables had reserved sign on top but then they sat me anywhere... Strange, maybe if they don't like the persons face they say all tables are reserved...
This is a very posh restaurant but only on the appearances.
My friends food was seitan stroganoff which was quite tasty. I was dying for the burger and it was a huge disapointment. Portions were good.
The apple juice they say is freshly made, it may be true but half of it was water for sure.
I didn't had dessert but my friend said her cheese cake was "ok".

Cons: Expensive, Food not the best for the price

BEST vegan food in London! - Edit

Incredible food and service. My sister and I ate here while visiting London from the US and we loved it. We ordered the Heart's Desire and Bean and Tofu Pancake for starters, the Seitan Stroganoff and Ben's Special for our main meals and the Spice Island Pie and Apple Crumble with vanilla ice cream for dessert. All delicious. Had a chance to talk with Ben the owner and brilliant chef behind this cuisine and he is as wonderful as his cooking. Food is his passion and you can taste it in every bite. Definitely go here!

Pros: Delicious!!!, High quality of food and service , Very affordable

Tasty vegan buffet highly recommended! - Edit

Favourite vegan eat in London so far. Great food (buffet style) and lovely staff, very popular at the weekend, might be more enjoyable during the week as it gets crowded. Highly recommend it, for sure.

Pros: Food choice, Food quality and taste, Staff

Cons: Small

Too small for all its customers - Edit

We ate here on a Saturday afternoon, which I guess we should have known that it would be crowded, but really! There were people on top of us, brushing past us while we were sitting, and it was really uncomfortable. They've squeezed way too many tables into a small area. So if you want to try the very good food, arrive either early or late when the crowd thins out. A very good vegan buffet is on offer, with many dishes, all good. We'll be back if we're in the area.

Pros: Good food., Attentive staff., Reasonable prices

Cons: Super crowded at lunchtime.

Cons: None!

Amazing vegan food - Edit

This has got to be my favourite vegan restaurant in London. The choice of food is great and the lunch buffet is not to be missed. Make sure you try the chickpea curry and the stroganoff, and save room for one of the scrumptious desserts!

Pros: Stroganoff, Lunch buffet

Vegan Heaven. - Edit

My favorite vegan place in London. Has takeaway option, but I've always eaten in. Not to far from tube stations, and a few doors down from a great little vegan food shop, GreenBay.

The buffet is fantastic, for the price, I can never get through more than two plates, though I try. However I always find room for a desert. The chocolate fudge cake is my fav, with blueberry ice cream (Literally tastes like blueberry muffin in ice cream form)

The basics of the buffet are a curry, usually chickpea and veg, a grain; quinoa or rice, and variations of vegetable dishes including some sort of root veg; white/sweet potato wedges, sometimes baked plantain. Plus vegan quiche like tart (Half my plate is this tart, it is so good) and different salads.

The bulk is quite healthy. Though they do use oil, the majority are balanced full of good ingredients.

The lady who works out front (Or at least has worked out front the several times I've been) is super lovely, polite and helpful with questions. You can see into the kitchen, which looks clean, with chefs working to replenish the dishes as they disappear.

I have visited with a group, and by myself, and have felt comfortable and welcome both ways.

Pros: Great food., Great price., Lovely staff.

Delicious lunch buffet - Edit

There were around five different main dishes and a few salads available at the buffet, no desserts. Especially the broccoli curry and the Mediterranean bean salad were extremely yummy.
The restaurant itself is quite small what could be uncomfortable for you if you like a lot of privacy when eating.
Around 10£ for the buffet.

Get the pancake for dessert! It's delicious! Also, my brother had the ice cream and he's not a vegan and said it's better than dairy ice cream!
