First Review by Stevie

Good but... - Edit

Busy, overpriced and a little bit overrated. I tried the Polish burger and was completely disappointed about the taste... cause there was any. But it was quite big and the potatoes were good. I'll have to give it a try next time I'm in London!

Pros: Nice place, Huge portions

Cons: Expensive, Busy

Tasty but busy - Edit

On our second try we managed to get a table (they do not take reservations). Food was nice and service fast. Downside: Chocolate brownie more of regular chocolate cake though but still tasty.

My favourite restaurant! - Edit

Mildreds now has 3 branches in London and all are on par with each other. The menu changes regularly with plenty to choose from each time. Mildreds gets very busy so you normally have to wait for a table but that just proves how great it is. Half the charm is the family seating so you are sat next to other people so I've met some really interesting people here as well.

Pros: Great food, regulary changing menu

Cons: Can get very busy so can be quite loud

Awesome! - Edit

I was in London for a few days and I had lunch here twice. I loved the place! It's though crowded and a bit noisy. The vegan hamburger with sweet potatoes fries and vegan mayo was absolutely amazing! I had desserts both times. The vegan pavlova was delicious. I highly recommend it!!

Pros: Awesome food!!

Cons: A bit crowed and noisy

Thumbs-up - Edit

Extensive vegan options and interesting atmosphere. Enjoyed the food, but what I ordered (veggie burger) wasn't anything special. Our server wasn't pleasant at all, and I thought not much of it until reading many of the reviews on here. Overall a decent restaurant for a veggie lunch, but not a fantastic place due to subpar service.

Pros: lots of vegan options , unique atmosphere

Cons: Noticeably bad service

amazing vegan food!! - Edit

This place is awesome. Great quality vegan food and tonnes of choice. I've been to the other branches before but this one is more traditional design and more cosy but very busy. I had mushroom and ale pie with chips and mushy peas and it was delicious. Highly recommend!!

Long wait for good food - Edit

If you come here during dinner hours, expect to wait, as you cannot book. The food is wonderful and vegan options are clearly marked. I've been to the Soho and Kings Cross branch and both were good. Only downside is that it's not vegan.

Pros: Tasty Food

Cons: Long wait, Not vegan

Awesome Dishes - Edit

This restaurant is always busy so expect to have to wait for a table since you cannot book. However, the wait is oh-so-worth-it. The classic burger is literally the best I have ever tasted in my life and the sweet potatoes fries are so soft and cooked to such perfection. You will probably be very full after a meal here but if you can manage it - try one of their amazing desserts too!
Just be aware that it is always busy.
Portions are huge and reasonably priced.
Vegan food is clearly marked and most dishes are vegan.

Pros: Best tasting food ever, Huge portions, Sell nice drinks and cocktails

Cons: Very busy and crowded, Not entirely vegan

My favourite restaurant - Edit

I've now been to this restaurant 3 times and each time was better than the last - every time I've got the vegan burger with vegan cheese, sweet potato fries and vegan mayo and it's just the best. Will have to try to order something different next time - I've also tasted the Thai green curry and that was amazing too!!

Pros: Easy access, Delicious food including cheese and mayo, Amazing staff, most are vegan

Cons: Would advise getting there early!

Worth the wait! - Edit

I love this place, wide interesting menu. On my last visit I had pie, mushy peas and chips which were so tasty and a proper chip shop size portion, none of your tiny morsels soho eateries often present you with. They have a great range of vegan wines too. There is usually a loooong wait but you get allocated a number so can relax in the bar with a cocktail until they come and get you. The staff often seem a little harassed with how busy it gets but I've never had an issue with my order or the speed in which I'm served. The dessert menu is amazing and I shall be ever thankful for vegan brownies and ice cream!

Pros: Vegan wine & cocktail list (all well marked), Amazing food, Big portions

Cons: Long wait for a table/ No booking, Small seating area

Great value and fantastic food. Great venue to take omni/vege/vegan/anybody. Only downside to this branch is the cramped tables and long queues. But friendly staff and worth it!

Tasty food, but very busy! - Edit

I came here yesterday with my husband and was surprised to get a table straight away despite it being busy. The service was okay, although the lady who served us wasn't very friendly (the other waiters and waitresses seemed quite cheerful towards their customers). We both ordered the tofu burger and it was lovely! The vegan cheese inside was very tasty which surprised me because I'm usually not a huge fan and the sweet potato chips were also good. Overall it was an okay experience and I'd definitely come back, but I didn't enjoy the cramped conditions and slow service. It also would have been nice to have been offered a dessert menu, but oh well, maybe next time!

Pros: Delicious food, reasonably priced, many vegan options

Cons: Very busy, unfriendly service , cramped seating

Decent place - Edit

We ordered a veggie burger for each of us. One was Polish burger and the other escapes me. Service was decent. Location was good, passed by it first time as it's small on the street front. Expensive as the burgers didn't come with any sides or anything. If I'm paying that much for a burger it should come with sides.

Pros: Decent food, Service was pleasant

Cons: Expensive, Burgers come with no sides

Always great food! - Edit

Had the burger with chips - the garlic creamy dipping sauce was a bit rich but otherwise the meal was fantastic! We were seated upstairs in a small but nice room. It's a great place to take non-vegan friends and family!

Pros: Good food, Friendly atmosphere

Cons: Having to queue for a table

Great food but long wait for a table - Edit

Extremely busy, went in on a Thursday. Greeted and told we'd be waiting for a table of two for about thirty minutes. In the end we waited for nearly an hour. Very cosy as the tables are nearly touching together, but as its a busy place, I guess they want to fit as many customers in as possible. Lots of choices on food and drink, variety of cocktails. Beetroot burger was great, but if you want chips, you need to order those as an extra. I enjoyed a Moroccan style curry, lots of flavours and finished off with rum truffles. Pricing is around the middle, not cheap but not expensive. But if you're waiting for your table, you may want a drink or two while you wait.

Pros: Delicious food, Best beetroot burger ever, A range of cocktails

Cons: Waiting time for tables and you can't book, No air con and can be hot in the summer, Tables are very close to each other

Great meal! - Edit

Since it was my first time visiting London, I was unsure about where to eat. I was ecstatic when I came across Mildred's. I got the sweet potato and green bean curry which was delicious. The menu is full of goodies that even meat eaters would enjoy! My only con is that the restaurant is small, so it can get a bit tight. However, the staff is friendly and accommodating, so it feels kind of homey.

Pros: Fast service , Fresh food, Kind staff

Cons: Small space

Amazing british vegan food - Edit

We were here on an afternoon and still had to wait for about 15 minutes to get a seat (reading the other reviews here I guess we can consider ourselves lucky).

The food we got was plainly amazing, I had a vegan pie with mash and a great panna cotta for dessert. The price was what you have to pay for good food in Central London, not cheap at all, but it was worth it to me that day.

Pros: great food, lots of choices

Go Now!! - Edit

If you don't go here while you're in London, you are absolutely missing out.
You can't book a table, so get there early or get there late......or be prepared to wait!!
Food is incredible.
The Drunken Tofu is definitely worth ordering!!
