First Review by Wolfonion

Yummy food. Friendly service. - Edit

I popped in to Redemption for a quick lunch between workshops and ordered the sparkling rosemary drink and Rendang jackfruit curry. Both the drink and curry were full of aroma and flavour. Loved it! The restaurant has a nice and cosy atmosphere, and the service from staff seemed genuinely caring. Would definitely recommend them to other vegans and while not low-budget, it certainly wasn’t the priciest I’d lunch options for London!

Nice food, expensive - Edit

We had the corn chips and dips to start which were pretty average. The jackfruit burger for main was great, really tasty. The banoffee pie was also really nice. The mocktails were ok. They don't do Seedlip at this branch yet, just Notting hill which is a shame as my friends said it's really nice. Service was attentive (occasionally a bit too much so). Everything was a bit too expensive for what it was.

Pros: All gluten-free, Good service

Cons: Expensive

Very basic food - Edit

Very basic food with little flavor. Been here twice now and found the Jackfruit burger and Jackfruit curry to be really plain....
Not worth the price.

Pros: Nice venue, Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive

Thank Buddha - Edit

Great little cafe serving the cleanest foods. My sister and I came here for lunch, she's gluten free and we're both vegan, it was such a relief to not have to worry about anything on the menu! I had the Buddha bowl and my sister had the soup of the day: cauliflower and carrot, both were delicious. I would definitely recommend!

Pros: gluten free

Finding Redemption in Shoreditch - Edit

Searching for somewhere for a vegan Sunday lunch, we found Redemption. We were told we might have to wait an hour but they managed to make room for us within about five minutes.

The food was delicious. I started with soup (celeriac and coriander) and followed it with a delicious penne. The place was busy (even spotted Alison Janney there) but not too noisy. Lovely atmosphere.

Pros: Excellent food, Cosy atmosphere, Friendly staff

Nice food - Edit

I enjoyed the food pretty much, but not my girlfriend who is not vegan. So it should be for everyone's taste. Anyhow it was surprisingly that desserts are made without sugar.

Pros: Great for vegans

Cons: Probably not everyone's taste.

Pulled Pork and Bliss Balls - Edit

Everything that came out of the kitchen here looked amazing! But it was definitely the pulled pork (jackfruit) sandwich that seemed to be the restaurant favourite with almost half the people around me ordering it. I had the sandwich, which was amazing! I also had the bliss balls for dessert, which were also delicious!

Try the "Temple of 10!" - Edit

This was my first time dining at Redemption at this location, and it did not disappoint. I tried the "10 a Day" which was a bowl of, well, 10 servings of vegetables. It was huge, at nearly a kilo of plant-based goodness. The flavors complemented each other very well and were tied together with a nice peanut sauce. There was more on the menu that I wanted to try, but dare I say the 10 a Day was quite enough.

Sneaky service charge watch out! - Edit

Very limited menu . With very pricy meals. I got the pulled jackfruit which to be fair was delicious but a bit over priced. Was very upset to find out that they had added a service charge for no reason.

Pros: delicious

Cons: service charge, pricy, limited menu

Hit and miss - Edit

I had beans on toast thing. Toast was dry and felt like something I would make at home. The people I was with had Buddha bowls and all said the aubergine was not cooked well.

People I was with raved about the pudding.

Great vegan food! - Edit

I had a late lunch at Redemption, when it wasn't busy. I had the daily buddha bowl, followed by the acai berry & vanilla cheesecake. Both were delicious and well presented. The service was prompt and friendly. For the quality of the food, I don't think the prices are excessive.
A good experience and I will eat there again.

Pros: Very good food, with a wide choice., All vegan, Friendly service

Good but overpriced - Edit

Good vegan, gluten free food, but quite expensive. Not impressed over all. Also the restaurant is tiny. I can get better food for that level of money in London.

Pros: Decent vegan food

Cons: Expensive

good food, but sketchy service and pricey - Edit

The food here was really good - the menu looked great and had a lot of variety. The place was a bit fancy rather than cosy but it was nice enough and had a great bathroom and terrace area.

My main gripes were that the prices were kind of obscene, and the service was borderline bad. It takes a lot for me not to tip but I didn't here. The service was slow and dismissive, the waitress was quite rude, and we were actually told when we sat down that we would have to leave within 45 minutes because we weren't ordering main food, even though the place was completely empty. When we did leave it was still only half full. Considering the choice of vegan places in east London (go to Black Cat or Boxpark) I wouldn't choose to go back here. Though the menu and quality of the food might tempt me...

Pros: taste, bathrooms

Cons: staff, price
