First Review by Marsglobe

Good food, all vegan - Edit

I'm limited in what I can eat (practically no carbs). Therefore I appreciated that they have an option of making a main dish out of several starters or side dishes. I found things that I would eat. The portions were not skimpy. The quality of the food very good and the presentation quite nice, though not like a super-fancy chef type place. The service was very good. I'd recommend going.

Pros: nice selection, flexible menu, decent portions

Cons: on the expensive side

Vegan fine dining - Edit

The food was good quality in both taste and presentation on the plate. Staff were very polite and accommodating. An interesting array of food as we chose the build your own players but all in all very satisfied.

Updated from previous review on 2016-10-25

Pros: fine dining experience , quality of food , presentation of food

Cons: small tables , small desserts menu

WOW amazing!! a must - Edit

I came with my meat eater husband and we were both amazed! The food was so so good. The atmosphere is fancy but not a suite and a tie fancy. Prices aren't cheap, but definitely worthy for a special event. The service was kind as well.

Awesome location for restaurant - Edit

The location almost seems wrong when you approach it as it seems like a residential area. However, it is nicely tucked away from busy streets. It's a bit tricky to get to as it's not on any of the main train/tube lines but it's right near Primrose Hill so makes a lovely excuse to walk via that for a great view.

Pros: Location (next to Primrose Hill), Lovely food choices

Cons: Bit difficult to get to via tube/train

so much choice - Edit

Not what I expected and exceeded expectations. Portion sizes were huge, really enjoyed the raw tacos to start which would probably have satisfied me as a main. Pecan cheesecake with berries on the side for dessert were delicious, as was vegan wine. Very close to primrose hill to walk our lovely dinner off and look over London :)

The Best!!! - Edit

The most amazing place to eat so far. We didn't have reservations but they found us a table even though it was Mothers Day. The food was absolutely delicious and perfectly presented. Everything we saw coming from the kitchen looked wonderful. They even gave us two mothers a bag of delicious homemade cookies when we left!! I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Even the non vegan members of our party were blown away. I will definitely visit again and wish I lived closer so I could go every week

Pros: Excellent Food, Excellent Presentation, Excellent Staff

My favourite vegan restaurant in London! - Edit

I am not sure why it took me so long to try Manna but I will certainly be back. It is the perfect place for a special meal - lovely food and vibe. We ate the arancini, courgette and corn fritters, nachos and green curry. Save room for dessert - the semifreddo was spectacular.

Delicious but pricey - Edit

Can't fault the venue or how tasty the food was. I had the spaghetti and veatballs, with the houmous and pita bread on the side. The houmous was delicious. And the veatballs were very tasty.

I was only disappointed with the portion sizes, especially considering the price. My meal came to £18 (very pricey for lunch) and it didn't fill me up as the portions were tiny. As a one-off treat it was lovely, but too expensive for me to go back again.

Pros: Delicious food, lovely venue, great service

Cons: Expensive, small portions

Lovely little restaurant - Edit

I went for lunch and had a great salad, big portion, nice mix of very fresh raw and cooked veggies, very tasty. It is off a lovely street in Primrose hill, full of nice little shops. Easy to get there from Chalk Farm Tube Station. Definitely want to go back for a bigger meal!

a not so lonely lunch - Edit

Went here for lunch on my own and immediately fell in love with the menu. I chose the nachos as I was wanting to try their vegan cashew cheese. It was great and super filling. Everything was ordered and came to me with in about 5 minutes which was awesome. Certainly going back

Pros: service , fast, tastes amazing

lovely New Year's Eve dinner - Edit

Went with my vegan husband and vegetarian friend on NYE before seeing the fireworks from primrose hill . Set menu for only £54 which included 7 courses, a cocktail and a glass of house wine. Really nice atmosphere and good service.

Pros: delicious celeriac soup

Cons: main course a bit disappointing

I want to love this place but I don't - Edit

There are so few vegan restaurants in London that I wish I could be more positive about this one. I have been here probably 6 or 7 times over the past few years, and every time I feel that the food is OK but nothing special. I keep hoping it will improve. We could really use an amazing vegan restaurant in London.

Pros: vegan, Thanksgiving dinner

Cons: food is just OK, difficult to get to, usually requires reservations

Manna mia (sorry) - Edit

Me and my partner visited Manna while staying in Camden Town... easily one of the food highlights of our trip to London. We heard that it was the oldest veggie restaurant in London and it seemed quite prestigious so we had high exceptions, which I'd say were met.
We decided to book and good thing we did, as it was busy even on a Tuesday evening. The staff were very welcoming and friendly.
We both had the lasagne which was gorgeous although they may have gone a bit overboard with the tomato sauce, which overpowered the other flavours until you cleared it a bit.
For dessert my partner had the cheesecake of the day (coffee and chocolate) which really tempted me but in the end I went for the semi-freddo... three different flavours of vegan ice cream layered with cookie dough topped with fresh berries and coulis anyone? Gosh, I loved it, tasted so good. Very photogenic also.
Sung my praises in the little message book on the way out, great experience.

Pros: Great service, Fantastic food, Chalk farm looks like a nice area

Cons: I've had better bloody marys but still, Expensive for small town Welsh folk

incredible food!! - Edit

My sister and I went last night. We were dressed really casually, on the verge of 'will they let us in?' And they were so welcoming. Then we got to the food- great options, and oh my days the pumpkin soup was divine. Divine.

great for a posh meal - Edit

Lovely upmarket restaurant for the posher vegan dining experience, lovely food but pricey. I went for my birthday with my Omni mum, she loves trying vegan food but didn't enjoy the menu as much as I did, so not best place to take non-vegans.

Pros: posh vegan food

Cons: I didn't like the layout, looks like a house, but , exotic menu may scare Omni friends

Best Sunday roast ever! - Edit

This is my boyfriend and I's favourite vegan restaurant in London, we always visit for special occasions and events. There is always a great atmosphere and the staff are really friendly. Everything on the menu is delicious, but we always go for the special Sunday roasts! The puddings too are unbelievable - the best vegan cheesecake ever. Go with an empty stomach and have three courses!!

Good to visit all-vegan restaurant - Edit

It was good to see that the restaurant was full and thriving with an all-vegan menu. Very nice atmosphere and attentive service.
We liked their version of a thai green curry with tofu skewers, cashew nut rise and mango salad. The nacho platter was nice, very fresh-tasting dips and salsa. The enchilada lasagne was very tough to cut, especially the bottom layer and was pretty much the same things as the nacho platter reconfigured - our mistake in ordering without spotting this.
We were keen to try their creme caramel as have never had this dish. It was a pleasant peanut flavour mouse with chocolate ganache and caramelized nuts on top.
Also, Freedom lager!
The food was good, and it was nice to have a meal in a proper restaurant rather than cafes, though to be honest it's not as amazing as we were expecting for the price.

Pros: All vegan , Restaurant setting , Vegan drinks

Cons: Good but not amazing, Pricey

Classic Vegan Soul - Edit

Walked in and Marvin Gay was playing, so instantly the mood was set for an enjoyable meal. Then the oldies kept coming to the tune of our fabulous meal. Misa ordered the falafel burger and mixed green salad, I went with the organic spaghetti & veatballs while the kids graved the marinated tofu, chana masala, garlic greens and manna humous. They also serve desserts, fresh juices and organic wines if that's your thing.

Pros: too many options, wifi

Cons: none

Best meal in London! - Edit

I went to this restaurant with my vegan sister and nonvegan mother, and we all loved it! It's a bit out of the way if you're staying in central London, but definitely worth the trip. I got the bangers and mash as an entree and nachos as an appetizer. Best nachos I've ever had, and the bangers and mash was SO good. Lovely atmosphere and great service. It's also cool because it's the oldest still standing vegetarian (now all vegan) place in London.

The best London vegan restaurant - Edit

I was born in London and have been vegan for over 15 years. manna is my favourite restaurant. The ambience is great - it is a suitable place for a romantic dinner or special evening of any kind. The food is all vegan and always fantastic. They make their own cashew cheese and various complex sauces and always have a variety of dishes, including hearty fare like vegan meatball pasta, as well as healthier, lighter options. Their desserts are always to die for and they make their own petit fours too. They have a great wine list and also do nice cocktails. The service is friendly and down to earth despite the upscale location. Over the years I have taken lots of people here including omnivore friends and relatives. Everyone always loves it and it is now the favourite restaurant of my omnivore best friend and my partner. Just go!

Pros: Lovely decor, Amazing food, Great wine

Nice setting, average food, pricey for what it is - Edit

Came here for dinner with the BF. I 100% agree with the average reviews that the food was middling and bland, and that the menu could use an update. We ordered the cashew cheese croquettes, the bangers and mash, and the potato and cashew cheese roulade, all of which were IMO the more interesting items on the menu. Everything else looked plain boring.

I had some expectation on the bangers and mash, but it turned out to be a disappointment. The onion rings weren't even salted. The "bangers" had an off texture and flavor—they were too soft, fell apart easily, and tasted nothing like sausages. I dare say I can make better ones than these. The roulade was unmemorable. However, I did like that they threw kale into both main courses—I love my greens! Best thing of the night was the croquettes. We did also share a sticky toffee pudding for dessert. That was pretty good, but overpriced at £8. Actually, I thought the price point as a whole was on the high side for what it was. That said, the setting was nice and cosy, service was friendly, and the portions were substantial. I think three cows is fair.

Pros: atmosphere, big portions

Cons: pricey, uninspiring menu


By submitting this post you agree to HappyCow Terms

Mediocre - Edit

We went here for dinner, having not been for a few years, and were reminded why we'd not rushed back. The food is decidedly average and presented in a way reminiscent of 90s gastropub fare. The sauces are poured on with excess, there is way too much lettuce lying around and the flavours lack vibrancy. There is a distinct lack of seasoning that results in an overall blandness that could easily be remedied. Things that aren't bland, like the chana masala, are almost sickly sweet. The desserts are heavy on what tastes suspiciously like the Swedish Glace one can buy in the supermarket. I applaud their decision to go all vegan, but with an edited menu and a clearer taste profile, this restaurant could be so much better. Given the price point, that seems fair to expect.

Pros: all vegan, nice location

Cons: boring flavours, dated presentation and decor

Average.. - Edit

Been there once for lunch during the week. I liked the mixed greens (containing Kale this day) but the bean taco did not leave me any strong memories.
I also have to say that the menu is not appealing (you cannot really figure what you are going to eat and it is not well described on the menu).
The service is very friendly and smiling though
I would probably go back for dinner to give it a second try, but not my priority.

Lovely Meal - Edit

I had such a good meal here; firstly, the whole menu is vegan so there's no deciphering what you can or can't eat, second the staff are so friendly and helpful, Michelle was our waitress and she was patient enough with me to help me pick a meal that suited my preference (high carb low fat) I got a bowl of spaghetti with two extra child's portions which filled me up nicely, it tasted fantastic too. I was also treated to a little birthday biscuit and chocolate selection with a candle on top and the chocolates were hands down the best vegan chocolate I've had. We were the last to leave the restaurant and felt in no way rushed out, the staff all said goodbye and I was left feeling completely satisfied. will definitely return to this lovely place. Thank you.

Pros: Welcoming, friendly atmosphere and staff, Delicious food, lovely location

Cons: not so cheap butyou get what you pay for

closed in afternoon - Edit

Looks like a great place to eat unfortunately it was closing when we arived on Saturday afternoon. Oddly the waitress didn't know of any other vegan restaraunts and was just wanted us to go away. (the place was still full of diners so could have perhaps spared a minute)

Great food experience! - Edit

I was so excited to try this place! I though they still had brunch but the waitress explained us it didn't work so well so they stopped but anyway, after a quick look at the menu, I wanted to try it all!

I went for the vegan gluten-free(!!!) onion rings, with the best batter I've ever had, seriously.
The raw pad thai was okay as well, not so my thing but still good. My BF had pasta with Vegan meatballs was okay, not so original but good cooked. The waitress was just so nice, so friendly, very attentive. The place is super lovely! I definitely recommend it!!!

Pros: raw and GF options, delicious food, cosy, nice place, lovely waiters

Cons: a bit pricey

Food good but on the expensive side - Edit

We came to manna with high expectations, having read a lot of hype. Sure enough, when we got there, the place had a pleasant atmosphere, a little less casual than some places, with napkins to drape across your lap (or whatever else you do with them). We were attended to quickly and I ordered the mezze plate and a sweet lassi. For my taste the lassi was not really thick enough. As a starter we shared the tempura vegetables, which were delicious in themselves but unfortunately accompanied by chili jam (too sweet for me) and a tamari-type sauce (too salty/sharp), both of which are not my thing. We also ordered the home-made organic bread, which I found nice but a bit on the dry side. The mezze platter was huge, and after the starter I struggled to finish it (but did). All the components of this were good and had an interesting array of complementary flavours. The falafel were crisp on the outside and perhaps a bit soft on the inside, but I didn't find this unpleasant. Delicious vegan vanilla ice cream finished the meal off nicely, as we wanted dessert but nothing too rich. This place is a bit on the pricey side and, while it's good, I'm not sure the price is quite matches by the quality. It might be a nice place to go for dinner occasionally with people visiting from out of town, rather than regularly.

Pros: Pleasant ambience

Cons: A bit on the pricey side

A Sublime Pleasure - Edit

Set in idyllic Primrose Hill, it was a pleasure to finally come here after reading and fantasising so much about it. Let's get straight to the food. Starters were cashew nut and jalapeno cheese croquettes. Verdict, awesome. We had two main courses. An outrageously delicious and sublimely presented grilled vegetable and chipotle tofu kebab with black bean and green pepper taquitos served with salsa and a salad dressed with vegan sour cream. The other main course was a crazily tasty Lebanese mezze platter with hummus, falafel, peppers and various dips and sauces. To finish, the cheescake of the day to share was just outstanding. An exceptional choice in London worthy of a place in my Happy Cow top 10!!

Pros: food, relaxed staff, location


By submitting this post you agree to HappyCow Terms

Delicious! - Edit

Lovely food!
We had the nachos to share to start which were lovely, the cashew nut cheese intrigued me and was very nice. I had the chef's salad and my partner had the stuffed polenta & wild mushroom ragu - both of which were varied and delicious. For dessert we shared the peanut butter cheese cake with chocolate ice-cream which was also yum!

It's quite an expensive place - mains are around £14 and desserts £8 but all the food was so fresh and beautifully prepared and presented. I would definitely go again.

Pros: tasty, good range of mains & dessert, very pleasant staff

Cons: quite expensive, could be a little noisy

One of the best Vegan eats in London - Edit

Great tasting food and big portion sizes. Fine dining experience which can seem expensive but is good value for money and a nice treat for a Vegan restaurant. Drinks were definitely overpriced. Bangers and mash and nachos starter were both standout.

Pros: friendly staff, nice atmosphere, delicious, well prepared food

Cons: Some items overpriced

Amazing! - Edit

Manna Cuisine is definitely the best restaurant we've done in London. 100% vegan, it offers an excellent fine cuisine, associated with big portions. In absolute terms, it is relatively pricey, but considering their food quality and the place, it is very fair.

We took an Indian thali which was great, a vegan bangers, a burger and hummus as a starter, and we were definitely too full to take a dessert (but they looks delicious on the other tables).

The place has a very nice atmosphere and the whole experience was great!

Pros: excellent food with big portions, fine cuisine, nice place and atmosphere

Cons: a little pricey, but fair for food quality

Manna! Don't You Wanna?!? - Edit

Amazing! That one word sums up the whole experience here. Such a fun & cute neighborhood it's in. The service was amazing. We ordered the jalapeño cashew cheese croquettes for a starter & mmm mmm mmm it was delish! The ranch that's served with it really steps the flavor up a notch. I was so excited before dining here when I seen their menu online & noticed they had bangers & mash VEGAN style. This is a very popular traditional English dish that's heavy on the sausage & casein infested products so when I seen they had a vegan rendition I was excited. It was delicious the "sausage" was my favorite part. I still think about that dish. My boyfriend ordered the mushroom Ragu & polenta & he said it was delicious. I was nibbling off of his plate & definitely agreed. Overall, we left here very satisfied.

Pros: Delicious food, Attentive Service, Fun Location

are you a foodie in London? come to Manna, quickly! - Edit

I made a reservation for one person at Manna for a Wednesday evening and was promptly seated at a great little table with great courtesy. The restaurant is small and cozy and it feels like you are seating at someone's dining room. The friendly waiter immediately offered me water and proceeded to read me the chef's specials. I chose a tart and main courses that were in the specials menu . OMG, what a great decision! The tart was flaky and I felt that I was eating a tuna pie without the fishy flavor. Then, came a tower of potatoes, a wild rice patty and a rucola and broccoli salad on top. All on a bed of a bell pepper sauce and flanked by a corn ratatouille. Heavenly tasty! The dessert list was wide and encouraging, so I ordered sticky toffee pudding and a capuccino. Everything was as delicious as it was beautiful. They offer a 5-course dinner for £40, which is a steal for London.

Pros: service, presentation, all vegan

Cons: small menu

xmas divine - Edit

They know how to make vegan food truly special. I had the Christmas dinner and it was divine, the risotto is the best I had so far. I got mince pies to take away, also delicious. Beautiful atmosphere and friendly staff. Well worth the price.

Cons: none

Loved, loved my meal here. Such a great menu and it's so wonderful that it's all vegan. Staff was really friendly. Really enjoyed the special which was a beetroot risotto.

Sublime - Edit

This food is as good as New York's finest vegan restaurants. My partner ordered four starters instead of a main - garlic greens, hummus and bread, crispy tofu and mash with gravy - these were all amazing. I had the bangers and mash with greens which was incredible - the sausages tasted very gourmet. It was topped with onion rings which were great. We had fresh mocktails which were delicious. So good!

For dessert my partner had peanut butter custard topped with chocolate and caramel sauce which was divine. I had the semi-freddo which was the the BEST DESSERT ever! It was ice cream mixed with chocolate chips and cookies - so, so, so good.

Expensive but worth it! Great service.

Pros: Amazing food, All vegan

You Must Go! - Edit

The food here was fantastic I cannot recommend it enough.

I went alone last time I was in London. I felt relaxed and found the staff genuinely helpful and friendly when asked for advice.

The price of food is fairly high for my budget but I went as a special treat as there a few vegan or vegetarian restaurants where I live. It is NOT expensive as the food was worth every penny.

What a treat to go somewhere and not to have to dissect the menu or skip dessert. I had 3 courses (bread to start) and a hot cinnamon drink and the bill was just over £40.

Highly recommended.

Pros: Everything

Blown away - Edit

I was literally amazed the first time I visited Manna. Everything was perfect. Everything was delicious and it seemed incredible that it was vegan. I had a white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake that was faultless. The same thing happened the next time I visited, though the last time was a bit of a let down after the previous two visits (only in the dessert area - the only chocolatey option was a not very chocolatey brownie with a strange consistency).

I think this restaurant leads the way for vegan cuisine. I am disappointed not to be able to go more often but I cannot justify going because of the price. It is the most expensive vegetarian/vegan restaurant and despite its top quality food I don't know if it should be quite that pricey.

It truly is something special though.

Pros: Incredible, innovative vegan food, Nice location, Menu is updated regularly

Cons: Very expensive


By submitting this post you agree to HappyCow Terms

I want to be more positive - Edit

I generally try and focus on the positives for reviews. There are not many vegan options out there and it's good to support places that provide for us.
So the good points for Manna include a good location, great ambience and a wide menu. There are not any other five star vegan or vegetarian places in London.

For the negatives, I went on what must have been the hottest day of the English year and had to ask for water. We then got two glasses which were not replenished at any point. We had to get up and help ourselves at the bar. Not great. The food was interesting and creative. i could be wrong but the croquettes seemed a bit pre-prepared. The desert portions were also extremely small for the price.

We ate the croquettes, the carribean platter and special of the day, which was a nice tofu dish. We got deserts to take away bit had to ask for a plastic bag to carry the containers.

Overall. manna is set up the nicest of any vegan place in London. It has an interesting menu and can be great. I write these criticisms not to detract from its good points but to let the restaurant know that they do ask a reasonable price for their experience. It probably needs to make sure service matches this.

Delicious vegan food & friendly staff - Edit

Great delicious vegan food, including amazing desserts! It is expensive but its worth it! The staff was very friendly, making us feel welcome & comfortable.

Pros: Delicious food, Great desserts, Friendly staff

Cons: Annoying 'elevator-style' music

Wonderful Vegan Restaurant! - Edit

We had 1 shared starter, 1 shared main course, two sides and two fantastic deserts: Vegan cheescake with coconut and passion fruit, raw cake with cahews and choccolat . Not a cheap restaurant, but very good value considering the quality (26 pound each, for us).
Also available a wide selection of organic and vegan wine.
Delicious food, very well presented. Good portion size.

Very friendly service.
All the menù is vegan.
Excellent place for romantic dinners.

Cons: Prices

Great meal. - Edit

I had not been to Manna in years before yesterday, and was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, with generous portions, and we were able to have a very relaxed meal over several hours. The staff were pleasant and gluten free options were clearly marked on the menu. However it remains as expensive as ever. I will certainly be trying to go back sooner this time.

Pros: Good food., Good portions., Pleasant atmosphere.

Cons: Expensive.

Nice but I don't think I'd go back. - Edit

Went on a Saturday night with a couple of friends, one an omnivore and one a pescatarian. It was really busy which is a good sign, no spare tables anywhere. The food we had was good, probably my favourite dish of the evening was the nachos we had to start (I miss going out and having nachos!) They use a cashew cheese sauce on them along with all of the usual fixings and they were really really good. However, I do have to warn you that the (average sized) plate of nachos was a whopping £12. The main courses we had were good although there wasn't much on the menu that really inspired me to be honest. I had their Thanksgiving tempeh roast and it was delicious, my friend had the bangers and mash which was really tasty. For dessert I had their supposedly famous Irish cream cheesecake which I think is made from soy, and I have to say that I found it quite bland. The chocolate and nut ice cream that came with it however was amazing. My friend had the sticky toffee pudding and that was a winner, wish I'd had that! The main negative for the evening (I expected it to be expensive so I was prepared for that) was the service. It was polite but fairly indifferent and we were left alone for long periods of time with no one paying any attention to us. It took quite a while to get a dessert menu and even to get the bill and while we were waiting we saw the staff hanging around at the bar just chatting to each other. So while it was nice, it wasn't exceptional or great value, although I was especially happy that my omnivore friend really liked her vegan food!

Pros: Lively atmosphere, Vegan desserts!, Nice neighbourhood

Cons: Fairly terrible service, Pretty damn pricy, Not a very varied menu

Some of the best vegan food in London - Edit

Over the past couple of years we have found that Manna is one of the best, if not the best, restaurants for vegan (and vegetarian)food in London. The service is friendly, and the restaurant has a really good ambience. Most importantly the food is great. It is always beautifully presented and there is always an interesting additional daily option.

Pros: Great vegan food, Good atmosphere, Friendly service

Inconsistent - Edit

What's up with Manna these days? Once Manna was excellent, truly excellent, not quite world class but pretty good, certainly the best in London. Then it started getting worse so I wrote a bad review on here and then removed it after a good experience and now been back again and not so sure I wasn't right the first time.
So our recent experience with Manna
Menu- really is getting more boring each time for main courses, starters they are more adventurous with and we'll get to desserts later. One special a day does not do it.
Staff: friendly enough but seem to have less autonomy than they used to.
Food: Starters- portions have got smaller and smaller, had satay and was markedly worse than ever before, soggy,little flavour
Main course. DH had the special and was excellent, old Manna standard definitely, good food. I had Chef's salad, it is not as good as it used to be, small portions of the tasty stuff and too many leaves but still good enough
Dessert: we got unlucky here. Now why go to Manna and not to somewhere like Amico Bio which serves great simple fresh food? It is because Manna is one of the few places which does decent vegan desserts. Having had a fab experience of their Knickerbocker Glory in the past, we opted for the Banana Split. Bad choice! three scoops of Swedish glace (we can buy that in the shops, why homemade ice cream for everything else but not the Banana split), a halved banana, a teaspoon literally of sauce and squirty cream. Now I'm sorry but that is way below standard. So we complained.
Apologies and you can have it off the bill, okay, we were pleased with that, we hadn't intended for them to take it off the bill, just wanted to let them know that perhaps they could reconsider how they made their banana splits
two minutes later "no we can't take it off the bill"
well fine but why tell us you can.
£100 bill as usual and left feeling disappointed.
This is our Manna problem at the moment,you leave disappointed, don't go back for a while and eat in other places and then get tempted back by the great sounding menu and fond memories of the past, you go back hopeful and leave disappointed. It is a vicious circle. The question is can we break it. Is it possible to have a great experience at Manna now or will we eventually realize that our hope is misplaced, that the best we will get will be okay.
I am giving them four cows because comparing to other veg places they are still above average but will they continue their downward slide or improve?

Pros: some great food, friendly staff

Cons: inconsistent, menu dull, on a downward slide

Awesome reviews are deserved - Edit

Of course its subjective (see previous review), but in my experience the food here is absolutely superb. I've been several times, with groups of non-veggies and they have also absolutely loved it and wanted to return.

I applaud what's been done here.

My only word of warning is book a table and perhaps choose a slightly earlier time than usual. It can get quite busy and the staff can get a little frantic.

Pros: For me, phenomenal food, Great Location

Cons: Busy busy busy

awful! - Edit

can't believe how many good reviews this place has, it's terrible. Very expensive, but serves bland, mediocre food. We don't mind splashing out for a treat, we went for our anniversary, but it's cheeky charging so much for this food...

The menu was a vegan version of 'Abigail's Party', trying to be posh and impressive but the cheese croquettes reminded us of Findus Crispy Pancakes! Also tried tasteless jerk tofu, nothing else was memorable enough to have stuck in the mind!

Admittedly the cheesecake was good. It's great that anyone opens a vegan restaurant aspiring to gourmet food, but this is gourmet prices without gourmet quality

Excellent - Edit

The menu was extensive and totally vegan. Nice atmosphere - classy but relaxed with friendly workers. We had the polenta feast, a thali, the cashew cheese croquets, and spaghetti and veat balls. For dessert we had a banana split and a nut cheese cake. Everything was awesome.

Pros: Fully vegan, Extensive menu, Friendly workers

Fantastic choices! - Edit

Manna did break the bank a little bit but we still went there twice during our stay in London. It was worth every pound! We had starters, mains and desserts on both occasions because we're not sure when we'll be back.
The bangers and mash were amazing and more than filling enough! The desserts were out of this world, we tried the coconut cheesecake, trifle, and tahini pot de creme. Seriously it was so rich and decadent, non vegans were surprised and amazed by the taste. The staff were super friendly and easy going, and very knowledgeable about the food options and ingredients. I look forward to trying Manna again on a new visit to London!

Pros: all vegan gourmet food, great desserts, friendly staff

Cons: a lit pricey, expensive wine

Best Vegan food in London!!! - Edit

On my last night in London, I really broke the bank at Manna, but it was absolutely worth it! (For the record, you can eat there without breaking the bank, I just chose not to, electing instead for drinks, an appetizer, main course, and dessert!) I had conversations with all of the staff there that evening, including the proprietor and his wife; I've never dined by myself and felt less alone!! I highly recommend the bangers and mash (how can you not, when you're in London?) and the banana split is divine. They even provided me with some free snacks to take with me for my train the following day! Manna is a fantastic restaurant. You won't be disappointed. (Check the website for directions; they're spot on, even for someone as prone to getting lost as myself.)

Pros: Fantastic food, Friendly staff, Nice ambiance and neighbourhood

VEGAN CHEESECAKE! - Edit

The desserts are excellent! My husband brought me here for my birthday and we enjoyed the meal, but especially the desserts.

The main dishes come in very generous portions (maybe a little too big!).

I would recommend this place :)

Pros: Desserts, Friendly service, All vegan

Cons: Some dishes missed the mark

Classy and Delicious - Edit

My omni boyfriend surprised me by booking us a table at Manna for our one year anniversary. It was the perfect choice: the food was amazing, the interior elegant and classy, and there was a pleasant atmosphere. We basically gorged ourselves on raw maki rolls to start, followed by vegan enchiladas for my boyfriend and a chef's salad for me. I worried I was rolling with a boring choice, but I couldn't resist the sexy siren's call of caperberries, caramelised onions, potato salad, artichoke, greens and all sorts of other exciting ingredients piled onto one plate. After dinner, we shared a Mexican hot chocolate cake with tequila sorbet and berries. It was vegan. It was amazing. It was so good, I sometimes still think of it wistfully and am considering getting its image tattooed on my chest. We lingered over our Freedom beers and moonwalked out of there with full bellies. Basically, Manna's delicious food made my boyfriend look like hot shit, so everyone was a winner.

Pros: high quality ingredients, ridiculously good deserts, beautiful interior

Cons: it isn't in my house, too expensive to be a regular haunt

Good but not excellent - Edit

I've been to several vegan/vegetarian gourmet retaurants already, so my expectations were high. The food at manna was good and the dessert (banoffee trifle) absolutely fantastic but altogether I would have expected a little more (creativity and excellence) for the prices.

Pros: banoffee trifle

Cons: pricey

Very good, a bit expensive - Edit

Manna is located in a small road, a few minutes' walk from the Chalk Farm tube station (be sure to check their website for instructions and not google maps!). The atmosphere is immediately warm and welcoming, and the staff very friendly. We were not very hungry when we got to Manna, but the menu was so full of attractive options that is was difficult to chose. We opted for a mezze platter consisting of 3 starters (among which the jerk tofu was the clear highlight) as well as the nachos, which were ok, although the guacamole, salsa and cheese were a bit bland for our taste. Every Sunday they serve a different "roast", and the one we had, consisting of a great variety of vegetables, was very good. For dessert we enjoyed both a banoffee trifle and the strawberry cheesecake, which as the menu states, you shouldn't miss. All in all a very good meal, just make sure to check the prices first if you're on a budget.

The best meal ever - Edit

I have traveled alot and always eat in vegie restuarants and I think this was the best meal I have ever had.
I started with the natchos (to share) as I have never had them before. the tortillas were crisp and it had black beans and guacamole and a cream made of cashew nuts...it was amazing
My husband had the ravioli which had a mushroom walnut pate and a fennel cream sauce....also delicious.
For my main dish I had bangers and mash....it was all organic and the bangers were made from fennel and pumkin seed and was crispy ,the mash was made from parsnip and carrots with a red wine leak and thyme jus...YUMMY....
My husband had the enchalada which was also very yum-o
I then had to have desert ...which I never ever eat...It was the baked stuffed apple in a puff pastry wrap.!!!
The staff were very knowledgeable and the owner Robin was a delight ,
When I am in London again I will absolutly eat there.
I live in Canada

Pros: great food, great staff, very satisfying

A very pleasurable experience at Manna - Edit

As others have observed, great to have so many vegan choices, (all vegan menu). I visited Manna in December 2010 and opted for the set Christmas menu, 3 courses, aperitif and petit fours. A very pleasurable experience. All courses were utterly lovely. Great choice of booze.I left feeling very satisfied and not at all hungry. Upmarket sort of place in terms of interior, but at the same time relaxed and very reasonable price range for quality of food and location.

Pros: all vegan and tasty, great service, great desserts

Nice to have many of vegan choices - Edit

After I hadn't been for a couple of years, my partner and I booked a table this Valentine's Day 2011. Manna offered a special 7 course menu, which at £50 and including an aperitif and a glass of wine was reasonable.

I was pleasantly surprised when I realized all food was vegan - including the desserts, which was a choice between raspberry tofu cheesecake and dark chocolate pot with whipped cream.

The waiter was very friendly and attentive in a non-obtrusive way. He was also knowledgeable about the wine choices and when he realized that we struggled to finish the 7th course (petite fours), got the course wrapped us for us take away (something that is not necessarily that common in the UK).

I really enjoyed the canapes and mushroom shooters, the sweet potato soup. I absolutely adored the desserts, especially the tofu cheesecake. While the polenta cakes were nice, I'm not sure that the edamame beans went particularly well. The fried courgette flower however was very nice.

The restaurant is just off the Primrose Hill high street. Closest tube station is Chalk Farm, from which it's a 5-10 min walk to the restaurant. Just around the corner is the famous Primrose Hill from which the views over London are stunning, particularly on a clear day. Walking up before or after a Manna meals also relieves one to some extent of the dessert guilt.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, Wide vegan choice, Vegan wines and spirits available

a MUST VISIT! fantastic! - Edit

i have been to manna twice now, and each time they served me one of the best meals of my life.

the first time, we went for dinner and had an absolutely astounding meal which included fresh bread, quinoa & millet, croquettes, and bangers and mash. everything was cooked to perfection. so flavorful and beautifully presented. unfortunately, we didn't care for our dessert, but the owner was so nice and offered us a free one on our next visit!

our second meal at manna was for their vegan sunday roast, and it was SUPERB! crispy "meat" made from macadamia nuts, wrapped in a pastry and topped with rich gravy. it was served with delicious roasted vegetables, and we even got some morning cocktails. a perfect meal, if you ask me.

while in london, BE SURE to eat at manna!

Pros: amazing food, great service, sunday roast

Cons: expensive

New Fave - Edit

My wife and I made our first trip to Manna just before Christmas and absolutely loved it. Couldn't believe we'd never been before, but sounds like things have improved recently, looking at other reviews, so perhaps a good thing that we waited.

Buzzing atmosphere, great service, superb food - made me proud to be vegan seeing so many people of all ages and walks of life enjoying themselves, whatever their dietary philosophy. I would bring all my carnist friends along and challenge their preconceptions.

I know what another reviewer meant by almost too much good food for the Christmas set menu, but we were able to take away a doggy bag of what we couldn't wolf down there and then, so enjoyed the tiramisu the following day too...

Me and the missus are booked in again for a Valentine's Day meal although they're closed on the actual day because it's a Monday (maybe you're missing a trick there Manna!). Can't wait!

Pros: 100% gorgeous vegan nosh, Easy to get to - 5' walk from Tube, Lovely service

Cons: Er ..., Um ..., ... None so far.

Tiramisu cheesecake - WOW!! - Edit

Went with my partner for the set Xmas menu. We got LOADS of food - probably too much. The highlight of the meal - we fought over it - was the tiramisu cheesecake. It was honestly the best vegan pud we've had anywhere. We felt the Xmas menu was a bit light on vegetables (only 3 tiny carrots and a bit of something green accompanied the main course - a very tasty en croute with a good sauce). Can't remember the starter but it was ok. A nice touch with the set menu was a plate of petit fours at the end and a free cocktail to start. It was our first visit to Manna and we'll definitely go again.

Pros: Tiramisu cheesecake!, 100% vegan, Friendly staff

Cons: Too much food

Manna From Heaven - Edit

We just had a wonderful meal at this almost entirely vegan restaurant located near Regents Park. The vegetables are very fresh, the faux meats way above average, and the homemade bread was excellent. The food was gourmet and elegantly presented, but the portions were not at all skimpy. In fact we chose to postpone desert (one of their specialties) and left feeling quite satisfied.

Highly recommended.

Pros: creative menu, romantic atmostphere, homemade bread

Cons: expensive

Totally amazing vegan food - Edit

Firstly ignore any bad reviews below, this place has undergone a major overhaul and is now totally vegan and has been for several months now. We visited this place yesterday and was met by the owner, Roger, who was really friendly. The decor was just right, subtle but tasteful and the music was generally of the 60's/early 70's (Rolling Stones, Georgie Fame, David Bowie etc) and on loud enough to hear but low enough to ignore if you wished (my husband wasnted the Stone to be louder!!) The menu, which is totally vegan, just blew my mind, I wanted everything on it and the specials that the friendly, helpful, waiter told me about. We were only having lunch so just stuck to a main course and a dessert though the starters others were having around us looked wonderful. I ate a hazelnut roast (the Sunday special) with roast new potates, vegetables and a superb yellow pepper dressing, my husband had sausage and mash with huge battered onion rings and a red onion gravy. Both dishes were perfect. For dessert I had a divine lemon cheesecake and my husband a delectable banoffee trifle. I also had this lovely hot drink infusion of mint, orange and maple syrup, sweet but delicious. Along with two soft drinks and service this came to just under £60.00. No, this isn't cheap but this standard of food isn't. If you want a cheap meal there are plenty of great places in London but this is fine dining and the price is comparable to other similar veggie establishments (and, of course, it is set in the lovely Primrose Hill!!) around the country and a hell of a lot cheaper than many quality meat based places. I really cannot recommend this place enough and I have eaten in veggie places around UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Don't miss this place if you are looking for a divine, totally vegan, dining experience in London.

Pros: All vegan, Fantastic Food, Friendly staff

Cons: None

Not Bad - Edit

We have been for Sunday lunch about 5 times now. It is very hit and miss on the food. The sunday lunch is OK but nothing to sing about. The deserts are OK but again not very inspiring. The chefs need to stop adding tofu to everything (personally I hate the stuff). They have gone all vegan now which is better. a £15 taxi ride from central London.

Pros: all vegan, good staff

Cons: hit and miss on food

i like it - Edit

I have only been to Manna twice, both visits were in the past 10 months, but both times have been good and I would definitely go again and recommend it. The staff have been efficient and very pleasant, attentive but not over the top or patronising. The food I have eaten has always been great. At my last visit in February I had nachos followed by bangers and mash finished with a slice of cake all of which were really tasty, the rest of the party were all pleased with their food as well. Maybe the chef has upped his game in the past few months.

Delicious food and beautiful environment - Edit

We had lunch here yesterday, and it was such a treat! We had the organic bangers and mash, and the malai kofta. Our server was very attentive and charming, and she was very good at explaining everything that we needed to know. The desserts were pretty amazing, and most of them were vegan. We had the mango cheesecake and the cake of the day which was a blueberry sponge cake, which came with a scoop of blueberry ice cream. All the dishes came beautifully presented, and the portions were quite large.

Pros: Yummy good, almost everything is vegan, wide range of vegan desserts

dissapointing - Edit

Manna last week, terrible once more, who's writing the pos. reviews? Review frm Nov.07 : back from my birthday meal at Manna. After reading the glowing reviews I expected fantastic food, imaginative and tasty. Even in this city of over-priced average fare, Manna disappointed in so many ways. Upon entering the restaurant, we both remarked how nice it looked, well-lit and good looking, nice lay out if a little too many tables in the space, we could live with that. Very neat and clean and definitely giving an impression of fine dining. Strange then, that we ate the meal with an indie-rock cd playing over the speakers (dont get me wrong, I like indie rock, it just wasn't appropriate there at all). Starters were an average price of £6.50(expensive even for London)and we had Perogis and a Fondue dish. The perogis were nice, full flavoured and the highlight of the meal. The fondue was awful - a badly made sauce, with cheese split from the wine and came presented within a small squash, with two miniscule bread sticks as the edible tool. Mains were 'pinto and lime chilli' and 'thai red curry'. Priced between £12.50 and £14.00 these were completely overpriced and not what I expect to see on a fine dining menu. I expect to see fare like this offered in a typical veg. buffet style restaurant. Nevermind, I thought, I'm sure it'll be something different than the usual fare. I was right, it was different than I'm used to - both mains were bland and unsatisfying. My chili had some falvour but lacked any heat whatsoever. It came with a tiny ramekin sized dollop of rice, a heap of undressed leaves, another egg-cup sized helping of tomato salsa (I counted 1 cherry tomato cut into 6 slices at it's core) and a similar sized bowl of guacamole. My partner's thai curry was also bland, although this time a reversal of my meal, whereas it lacked any substance of flavour but was chili'd to the max. The curry bowl consisted of 3 green beans, 2 baby sweetcorn stalks and 2 leaves of pak choi. It was accompanied by another egg cup of rice, a spring roll (that was tasty admittedly) and the obligatory pile of undressed leaves. I'm not a great cook, but I make better food here at home - this was bland, uninspired food that left us £60 lighter (Yanks you must be laughing right now...) and still hungry when we left. 88

Fails to live up to its billing - Edit

Unprepossessing exterior with box addendum extending out from the front of building. The decor inside is very pleasant with lovely silver and cream wallpaper and low lighting.
They had arranged seating for the big group I was with toward the back of the restaurant on the left as you walk in. It was a sort of enclosed area and they had placed the tables in a position skewed to one side. While there was at least a metre space behind chairs on one side there was less than a foot on the other side. The last people to arrive had to crawl under the table from the spacey side to get to the remaining chairs at the end of the table. I can only imagine the disruption had they had needed to go to the toilet during dinner. The enclosed area with the low ceiling meant sound bounced around and made it very noisy. It was really difficult to hear yourself speak and we were shouting just to make ourselves heard to those sitting next to us. By the end of dinner my ears and voice were a bit sore. I ordered soup for starter. I think it might have been pumpkin on the day. It was quite a large serving. Other than pureeing the pumpkin they added something, worsening the taste. It was bland. For main I had Vietnamese broth/ soup with leafy greens. It tasted bland. I have not had this before so am not sure how it should taste. Perhaps it was mint they used to create the effect they achieved. In other Vietnamese dishes I have had elsewhere mint complemented other flavours. When I went to see wait staff they were very pleasant, but they left us alone throughout dinner only coming to see if we wanted dessert toward the end. At over ₤20 for the two courses and service here it was definitely overpriced. That it came to this amount which was out of all proportion to what was delivered means it is a two.

One of the best vegetarian resturant in London - Edit

With a beautiful atmosphere and creative menu of mixed world cuisines, this is one of my favourite veggie haunts in London. It's a lovely place to go with an extensive drinks list if you enjoy soaking in and hanging out. Centrally located in the lovely Primrose Hill area and easy to find, the food is gourmet and delectable and the staff friendly and helpful. It's so much better than other so-called high end veggie eateries like Vanilla Black and The Gate. At least when the bill arrives you can feel it was worth the money!

Pros: Lovely decor, Great food, Centrally located

Cons: A little pricey

Wonderful - Edit

My husband and I went to Manna to try their Christmas menu. The restaurant is rather packed in with tables, but it's beautiful at the same time, and the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and service was good. I had the 4-course Christmas menu, which was absolutely delicious (and vegan). The canape was a pumpkin-filled filo pastry--the pastry was perfect, and the filling was good. I can't remember the starter, but it was some sort of timbale with wild mushrooms that was rather so-so. The highlight of my meal was my main, which was a jerusalem artichoke gallette with roasted veg. It was absolutely amazing, and I wished that I could have the same thing for my actual Christmas dinner! My husband was not as impressed as I was. He had the tempura for a starter, which was very good, but his main (something with wild mushrooms?) wasn't at the same standard as the rest of our meal. The sauce was good, but the rest was rather bland. He did enjoy his fruit crumble. My dessert was rather disappointing unfortunately. It was a "trio", but even with three pieces of cake, it didn't add up to a full dessert in my opinion. The apple bakewell was average. The chocolate cake (with rum I think?) was fantastic, and the vegan cheesecake had potential, but seemed as if the pieces had been cut and left in the fridge to dry out for a while. On the whole, we enjoyed ourselves, and are planning on going back soon to try the new menu. I think this may be the best veggie restaurant we've been to in London thus far. Although it is a bit pricey (to be expected in Primrose Hill), the quality of food was better than others, such as Mildred's.

Pros: good food, good service , nice atmosphere

Cons: a bit pricey, some dishes lack inspiration, dessert trio

Quite good - Edit

The food here was quite tasty, if a bit heavy. Prices are extremely high, but the quality of the food and its presentation justify the prices. I highly recommend trying their desserts, especially the vegan cheesecake, which is one of the best I've tried in the world.

Pros: Quality, Taste

Cons: Expensive, Heavy

My favourite restaurant in the world! - Edit

I love Manna. The food is gorgeous, with a brilliant selection for Vegans. My Omnivore boyfriend says it is his favourite restaurant in the world too :) I had the chef's salad which was awesome - a taste sensation on a plate. The desserts were great too. It's a little pricey - but worth it for a treat. Definitely go here if you're in London. Madonna, Stella McCartney, Moby & Gwyneth Paltrow have all been spotted here :)

Pros: Great food, Lovely staff, Seasonal menus

Cons: A little pricey

A Very Pleasant way To Pass the Evening - Edit

I took a party of 12 omnivores here to celebrate me leaving my job. The ever friendly and funky staff coped admirably with the barrage of questions and queries from my colleagues. The food was delicious, I had a filo wrapped black bean & monterey jack chimichanga which tasted fantastic and looked bloody marvellous!. I can strongly recommend the desserts here, the best chocolate tart I have ever tasted came from Manna, shame it's not on the menu currently. However, the mind blowing rasberry torte more than made up for it.

My colleagues all enjoyed the food too, (after initial squirming) and I think the meticulous attention to presentation helped. The only downside was a miso soup that tasted like something you'd strip drains with but that's a minor quibble.

The restaurant itself exudes the air of monied boho, think chemically abusive rock stars deciding to clean up their acts and go organic, and you get the idea. Set in lovely Primrose Hill, if you're up for it afterwards, a nice stroll up to the top of the hill to look at London at night is well recommended.

I'll be back (again)!

Pros: delicious food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere

Cons: horrible miso
