Basilicum - Edit

Located in an attractive and classy type of food hall with areas open to sunlight through high skylights and serving vegetarian and plenty of vegan meals and options. Includes original and creative menu. Mostly indian / asian food with some hot ones. Very pleasant atmosphere and would also suite vegetarians and vegans dining with non-veg people as there are other outlets who share tables.

Pros: friendly, tasty

Delicious! - Edit

Went there for the first time for dinner, was a little skeptical based on the menu but we decided to go a head with Basilicum. We had a few smoothies and juices, the eggplant and the vegetable balls appetisers and the vegan noodles main. The atmosphere is really lovely, rustic and warm in the Elliot Stables. The food was absolutely delicious, the vegetable balls were amazing, the eggplant was hearty and tasty. The noodles was some of the best quality noodles we've ever had, the vegetables were cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. I highly recommend this place for vegetarians and vegans as well as non-vegetarians. I think you will find yourself pleasantly surprised.

Pros: Appetisers were cheap and tasty, Mains were fantastic, Great atmosphere

Cons: Mains were a little pricey, No vegan-friendly deserts

Heymilly 27 Jan 2012 - They do have vegan deserts in the cabinet, but I guess they are subject to availability! They make a FABULOUS vegan chocolate cake.
