First Review by Stevie

fav restaurant in london - Edit

those chips tho?!?! amazing vegetarian and vegan food, worth the wait you may face if you come at busy times - but you can always have a cocktail at the bar (i love the Turkish rose)! the classic burger w cheeze saved my life. wish i had room for dessert but the portions are ginormous!!

Pros: excellent food, great vibe, huge portions

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 food - Edit

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!

Pros: Food!, Price

Cons: Long queues and no booking, Cramped

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!!

Okay when you can get a seat - Edit

Two out of the five or so times we've tried to eat here it's been way too busy (>1 hour wait times), even when it's not lunch or dinner time. When we have managed to get a seat, it's very crowded and noisy, which is at odds with the sophisticated decor and menu. The mains are a bit bland and not very memorable - they often feel overpriced. Once a member of staff misheard us and brought out the non-vegan option instead of the vegan one we had specifically asked for - we then had to wait ages for the correct version. You would think they would be a bit more attentive in a veggie restaurant. Otherwise the staff are friendly but busy - it's a struggle to get their attention. The vegan desserts are incredible (the best one was coconut panna cotta with salted caramel) - much better than the mains!

Pros: Amazing vegan desserts, Friendly staff

Cons: Not enough space, Boring, overpriced mains, Staff too busy to help

nice! - Edit

Weren't really hungry so shared a main and entree. Had the dumplings and the stir fry.

All good. Always room for improvement (slightly cold and a little oily) but so lovely to not have to worry about vegan options... And pretty damn tasty.

Very Busy, but Very Worth the Wait! - Edit

The place was packed when we arrived, but three different staff members assured us we would be seated as soon as possible. After a ten minute wait, we were indeed seated. The atmosphere is very casual and the staff is very friendly. All the dishes we had were delicious, but the risotto dish and the sausage dish really stand out. Sadly, they were out of the chocolate peanut butter brownie, but the puddings we ordered were all top notch. The crumble of the day was especially good.

All in all, a very good late dinner!

Love the food here - lots of choice for both vegetarians, vegan and those following a gluten free diet. The peanut butter brownie is to die for! You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Vegan options, Good for non-veggie friends and family

Cons: None

Great food - Edit

This restaurant let's you reserve a table (unlike the other Mildred's brunch in Soho)
The staff was very friendly, the restaurant was relatively clean but the food... The food was great.
I ordered the classic burger, my hubby took the Wellington dish and our friend ordered the curry dish.
All dishes were excellent! Each of us finish everything.
Than time for sweet....
Peanut butter brownie with vanilla ice cream - delicious is you like chocolate! For me I enjoyed the ice cream very much

Pros: yummy , quality , easy to reach

A great institution; but too long to wait - Edit

We love Mildreds; we really do. But the waiting times for a table are getting ridiculous. We were told 45-60 minutes at 6.00pm this evening and gave up.

Updated from previous review on Friday January 15, 2016

Good tasty comfort food. Great portions. Great prices. One of our favourite go-to places in town.


Cons: Too long to wait , in a tiny entry lobby/bar area

Good Food and Buzzing Atmosphere - Edit

Tried this place on Monday. Very sassy atmosphere and good food. Pretty good value too (I think most mains were around £8.50). I had the Polish burger with sweet potato fries for mains and the peanut butter brownie with vegan ice cream for pudding.

Make sure you get there before 18:30 or else you'll be stuck in a long queue with no booking options.

Pros: Good food, vibrant atmosphere, Central London location

Cons: reservations are not possible

The best food and friendly atmosphere - Edit

Amazing place to eat. Have been going to Mildred's for years now and I think we always will. The food has always been wonderful and the super friendly staff have always been so welcoming. This place does get busy but then there's a reason why! Have never had to wait for long, but then a little wait is worth it. The new Camden restaurant is also very, very good. Everybody I have recommended it to have also agreed.

Pros: The food, fresh juices, friendly staff and atmosph

Cons: None.

Waiter mixed up order and have me non vegan cheese - Edit

We used to go to Mildred's quite a lot. Only just joined the Happy Cow community and wanted to let people know to be REALLY clear when ordering. I had a panic attack here a year ago when I bit into my burger and it had dairy cheese in it despite asking for vegan cheese. It really worried me as I want to not have to worry about these kind of things in a veggie/ vegan place. The waiter was very apologetic and we were given our meals for free as well as the offer of free desserts (I just wanted to get out of there)... Haven't been since.
Just to be clear this was approximately a year ago.
