Great selection, decent flavors

Ate couple times here. Had the beyond burger, the arrabbiata pasta, smoothies and some dessert. Nothing really special from taste perspective, but love the vegan selection.

Great expectations but …meh

The reviews read well from here, and the menu looks great, I had the beyond burger which was good, fries a little floppy but ok the freshness was simply missing which was a great shame. I will return to try something else as the menu is a good size for vegan eaters.

Pros: Choice on the menu, Nice cool seating outside in a funnelled breeze

Vegan pasta options, beyond meat burger better

We had the beyond meat burger here which was nice with their own vegan truffle mayo. We went back and tried a couple different pastas, my Mediterranean didn’t have many capers and weren’t cut up into the sauce, the olives were also still stoned but overall was good. The veggie spirulina pasta was nice!

Pros: Beyond burger , Spirulina veggie/vegan pasta

Cons: Slightly expensive

Quite nice, bit bland

The pasta Genovese was nice but a bit bland. I asked for salt and pepper but they could only provide salt. To improve this dish they could add a vegan cheese or blended cashew Parmesan. I tried my partners arrabiatta and it was more flavoursome.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Nice smoothies

Cons: Bland tasting , Not very interesting vegan options

Good for the SOUL

Deliciously abundant rice bowl was perfect for a light lunch that didn’t sit too heavy. My husband got the vegan burger and fries.

Vegan & Ayurvedic style

The ad for the soup did catch me. At a cold day it warmed my heart and stomach.

Tasteless and overpriced

I ordered the tofu buddha bowl and the tofu was only marinated and had sesame seeds on it, so it had close to zero taste and was just placed in the middle as a whole silken tofu block. The veggies were all raw besides the green beans that were very salty and sloppy. There was a tbsp of hummus which tasted like smashed chickpeas with nothing else added. The meal would have been better with some proper preparation both of the tofu and the vegetables and then a more spiced hummus with lemon, tahin etc.

Pros: Healthy

Cons: Overpriced for what you get, Badly prepared food, Tasteless and seemed effortless

We found this place on Happy Cow, and from the photos and reviews we were expecting good things. However it was a bit underwhelming. Menu was quite limited, we ordered the vegan pasta and a tofu Buddha bowl. Pasta was OK but nothing to write home about, bowl was a bit disappointing and just quite odd in the way it was put together (lukewarm rice, cold silken tofu, bland veggies, sauce lacked any flavour).

Shared a carrot cake, unexpectedly a "raw" cake, but still nice.

It did the job as we were hungry from walking around the city, but it definitely wasn't somewhere we'd recommend or go back to.

Pros: Friendly staff, Convenient location

Cons: Disappointing food

Just kept ordering more

We went for a snack and ending up ordering dessert and then hot drinks.
Sat outside watching the world go by.

I didn't like the tofu being silken style so struggled to eat it. I just don't like it as my preference.
Raw carrot cake was a dream and chocolate drink was so, so thick!

Excellent ! 5 Star

Venue was super easy to find - had a menu to view without having to sit down so we pretty much new what we wanted as soon as we sat down! We opted for the beyond meat burger - cooked perfectly the food came out hot and very generous portions. We thought it was reasonably priced given its an expensive mock meat in the UK. Would happily go back and try the other items on the menu if we weren't an hour away from the restaurant. Staff were lovely and friendly - didn't have any issues with ordering and the food came out very quickly !

Pros: Portion size , Value , Super friendly staff

Menu is mostly vegan/veggie

Big sign advertising vegan and veggie options
Menu was clearly labelled and the staff seemed well informed

The texture of the burgers could have been better as they were a little squidgy

Pros: Well signposted , Lots of options, Good location and quick service

Cons: Food wasn’t incredible - could have more flavour
