Really well thought out vegan options

The food here was amazing with really good range of flavours which I've never had before! Portions were a decent size and there were at the time 3 vegan mains options. As a group we had one of each and everyone loved it.
A little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for

Pros: Really really tasty, Innovative vegan options, Nice vibe inside

Cons: Little Pricey average £15 a dish

Definitely recommend

Pros: Extremely tasty food & well prepared, Nice staff & atmosphere in restaurant

Cons: A little expensive (£15-20) per main dish

Double dumplings!

A welcoming restaurant over three levels with a banging Dancehall soundtrack (e.g. the super catchy and situation-relevant Rice and Peas by Chi Ching Ching).

Caribbean food is well worth a closer look for its plant-based Ital diet of the Rastafari movement. Don't be fooled by the laid-back rum shack styling here - this is accomplished cooking, well presented and quickly served, kicking off with the sweet potato patties which come as three light croquettes on savoury callaloo spiced with Scotch Bonnet and (guessing) cloves, with coconut lending a buttery richness rather than flavour.

The vegetable curry is described in the menu 'with dumplings and steamed rice, bullet dumplings'. This is not editorial confusion. There are dumplings in the comfortingly rich curry, then rice and more satisfying, salty fried dumplings on the side. What's not to love? The mock jerk chicken is some of the most convincing on the vegan scene - borderline worrying. A good sweet potato fry is hard to achieve but these guys have nailed the non-flaccid cut. Be sure to get the hot sauce dips for them.

Cocktails are good value with a fresh pineapple garnish that brings holiday vibes to the table, but they could up the ratio of citrus to sweetness for ultimate zingy refreshment on a warm night.
