First Review by Marsglobe

Pricier but worth it - Edit

We went for an occasion so didn't mind paying a bit more, but while it's a little bit expensive the portions aren't small. We had 3 starters as a mezze for £23 and the mains were about £15 each but it was all totally worth it. My enchilada bake was delicious. Cocktails were also very good, as was service.

Pros: Loads of glutenfree, Good service, Nice busy atmosphere

Delicious all-vegan food - Edit

Great place if you want to go for a nice dinner. Expect a treat because the food ia absolutely amazing. The day after we are still talking about the tostada starter and vegan cheese cake. Be willing to pay a bit more, but it's definitely worth it. Staff are very friendly and professional and the restaurant's atmosphere is casual and welcoming.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff and atmosphere

Expensive and a bit dull - Edit

Has a nice atmosphere. But the food seems a little dull. I has the sausage and mash. It looks impressive but tastes bland. The mash was watery and so was the gravy.

Fantastic Birthday Dinner - Edit

We went here for the first time to celebrate my 40th birthday. It was fantastic. The food we had was amazing (the table next to had something even better).

First time I've had vegan cheesecake that was virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. Served with the best vegan ice cream I've ever had.

Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.

It is a little pricey but I'd happily return for a special occasion.

Pros: Great menu, Great staff, The ice cream!

Cons: Fairly Expensive

Lovely dinner, veganised versions of traditional dishes - Edit

We had a lovely dinner!
Big portions. Not really gourmet/gastronomical, but orginal variations of traditional dishes (like bangers and mash, cheese croquettes).
The mezze dessert plate (for 2) was heavenly!

Nice atmosphere, tables not that closely together, although there was one table with about 5-6, who were really loud and dominated the place. Much quieter after they left.
Friendly service

Excellent - Edit

Inventive and delicious food - which definitely falls into the 'fusion' category -and excellent ambience. One of the original veg restaurants in London and one of my favs. It is rather pricey though!

50 years! - Edit

I am so proud of Manna to have celebrated 50 years in London, in that same Primrose Hill location!!
I have taken a friend for her birthday, my mum for her birthday, and just for a dinner with a friend, and my partner for their 60s special dinner, so I have been a few times. For their regular A La Carte menu they got enough options to vary even after 3 times of going, although after 5 I could imagine it would get a bit repetitive. They got some great tea selection there though! Great hot chocolate too.
The 60s 4 course set menu was definitely the favourite for me though. Very very great food, much work and thought went into this no doubt. Those little extra touches like a mini sausage roll before the 1st course only added to the special feeling.
Very decently priced too. For a restaurant of its level, the price is more than fair for the service and food you get. Definitely recommend that place to people!

Pros: Great food, Well priced, Lovely atmosphere

Yummy but slow and loud! - Edit

Visited for dinner.

We had the caribbean platter and the chef's plate (tofu steak w/mashed potatoes and kale).
The chef's plate was delicious; but I cannot say the same thing for the caribbean platter. It was not bad; but I was expecting more flavors given the ingredients.
The choice of desserts was also quite basic, so they could put a bit more effort into creating more interesting ones.

The service was ok; but very slow.

My biggest issue with Manna is that it was extremely loud. It was so difficult to have a conversation with people seating in front of you. But perhaps I was just unlucky with the crowd that day.

Pros: yummy chef's plate

Cons: slow service, could be loud

Gets very busy - Edit

I was excited to visit Manna for a swanky vegan dinner, but to be honest I was disappointed with how crowded together the tables were. Food was very nice, my cheesecake was a bit rubbery but I forgive that because the lovely waiting staff put a birthday candle in it for me :)

A lovely little place with an imaginative menu which leaves you spoilt for choice. To top it off the staff are professional, friendly and helpful. A restaurant that is perfect if you want a break from hipster/alternative vegan places.

lunch review - Edit

I ordered the raw taco, the nachos, the baked potato, and the spaghetti and meatballs. The nachos, tacos, and baked potato are basically the same toppings. They come with a very bland cashew cream saúse and unseasoned beans. The guac is decent but there was a lack of taste on these 3 dishes. The last dish was the spaghetti, the sauce was alright, something you can buy at the supermarket. The meatballs were good.
The service was good but we were the only ones there.
I won't give them 2 stars because I can't say much about their dinner menu. All this with a bottle of water came out to £38 with service included.

Beautiful - Edit

A lovely, cosy yet lively restaurant with beautiful food. It seemed fairly expensive on the menu but when the meals came they were so large and perfectly cooked and presented you could see why. Staff were lovely and attentive. It was amazing to get such a range of options for a change.

Pros: Delicious Food, Large Vegan Choice, Attentive Staff

Cons: Not good if you're on a budget (but worth it!)

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

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 :)
