Great for Vegans! - Edit

Really nice restaurant setting with even nicer vegan food. We had the chilli dog calzone and the bbq jackfruit kebab and would highly recommend. Chocolate tart and orange sorbet were also amazing.

Nice junk food restaurant - Edit

Nice atmosphere, nice crowd, nice staff. Food was good but apart from a few exceptions it wasn't very creative, the sort of stuff you'd find as the vegetarian option in any other restaurant.

Pros: Nice atmosphere

Cons: Limited choice, quite junk-foody

Outstanding vegan food! - Edit

Almost totally vegan with a few dishes offering a vegetarian cheese option. The food was amazing, I ordered the jackfruit kebab and it was huge!
Starters are on the small side and the dessert was a bit small too, but by that time I was already pretty full. They only have a very limited number of wines (one white, one rose, one red) but a good selection of beer and cider and a large cocktail menu.

Going mid-week it wasn't busy, which was a surprise because when we booked they said they'd need the table back in 2 hours. The service was very quick though and the food didn't last long.

The decor is more simple and casual than upmarket with black and white photos of musicians / popular bands over the years and a more wood and Mexican look around the bar area. I definitely prefer this to the shine look of restaurants that are part of a chain.

The restaurant is wheelchair accessible and all on the ground floor, although the road surface outside wasn't fantastic. The disabled toilet is quite rectangular and doesn't have the space to transfer from the side that some people may need but there's nothing that could be done about that. Thankfully the was plenty of floor space for turning.

Pros: Excellent vegan choice, Amazing food , Fast & friendly service

Cons: There's only one , Limited wine choice

excellent - Edit

Came here has a party of seven for our wedding anniversary, adults and some children. The nicest vegan pizzas ive had anywhere in the UK. Even vegan cheese was nice and I usually avoid it. Had tempura, salad, fries. Nothing negative to say. Very good service too. On holiday from Sheffield so probably won't be returning, unfortunately.

Mama, Life Had Just Begun - Edit

Pink Lane in Newcastle is a fascinating little back street. It's got some very decent bars, a Thai massage parlour and since September 2015, a fabulous vegetarian (mainly vegan) restaurant. On our first visit as soon as we walked into Bohemian we knew we were in a good place. Legendary album covers adorn the walls. The Smiths, Joy Division and Kraftwerk to name some of my favourites. We ordered the raw spaghetti bolognese and a chilli hot dog which was served with a vegan coleslaw, skinny fries and onion rings. The atmosphere here is naturally, bohemian! For me this is mixture of Montmartre in Paris, Kazimierz in Krakow and the old absinthe bars of Prague. The lighting is perfect, you don't get pestered or rushed and you are made to feel relaxed with a lingering need to return. Since that first visit in September 2015 we have returned numerous times and seen the place evolve and improve. This is why I'm updating my review from 4 to 5 Happy Cows today. Tuesday nights are very special indeed. 3 tapas for £10 and buy one get one free on the cocktails. Need to find out if they still do that as since opening on Sundays and from midday every day they have introduced some great new offers. Now listen very carefully. I shall say this only once. They have a full 100% vegan pizza menu which can even be home delivered. The pizzas are pretty exceptional, I've tried quite a few and can highly recommend the chilli dog calzone. It oozes vegan perfection in a fast food, calorifically explosive, tasty and junky sort of way. The staff are always friendly and are justifiably proud of their ever expanding range of novel culinary creations.

Pros: Great food creations , Bohemian decor, Atmosphere

Cons: Expensive wine

Love Boho! - Edit

I have eaten here a number of times and tried lots of the dishes. They're all delicious, filling and particularly brilliant for those who love meat alternatives. There's even a meat feast vegan pizza!

Pros: central Newcastle, vegan 'fast food' style options, well priced

Fantastic! - Edit

I came here for dinner last night and was blown away by the range and quality of the vegan options on the menu. In particular the pizza and churros were both fantastic! The staff were lovely and it has a very nice and relaxed atmosphere.

WOW - Edit

Literally the best takeout I have ever had. I had the Catch Of The Day pizza and the churros and it was absolutely delicious. The pizza tasted like seafood and the churros and chocolate were amazing. Well good!

Pros: Amazing

Cons: Little pricey

The pizza is AMAZING! - Edit

Recently my husband and 4 children visited The Bohemian and were really impressed. The choice on the menu was fantastic, but we all agreed we HAD to try the Vegan pizza. So we ordered Pizza and fries and we absolutely loved them. Really good proper melty type cheese. My children and husband also tried some dessert from the specials board. Some chocolate cakes and churros later we all rolled out of the restaurant full and happy. The staff were really friendly and patient , the decor and atmosphere were both great and we will definitely be taking a trip back to Newcastle to try some more delicious food there.

Pros: great menu choice, nice atmosphere, close to train station

two good visitS - Edit

had a jackfruit kebab and a glass of Shiraz, it was really tasty.
I have to say the fries were a wee bit oily, but the chilli sauce side was as spicy as they said, which was great. the kebab was tasty and full of salad and the vegan slaw was as good as could be.
if you are in ncl try and visit. a winner
returned for a vegan chinichanga and fries and onion rings. the food was great, my only criticism, maybe harsh, but maybe make your own onion rings. big and chunky is best.
a great option.

Pros: selection, tatsy, staff

Awesome pizza with jackfruit on it - Edit

this place was amazing! All the food we had tasted super nice. I had a Tex-Mex pizza, which had jackfruit on it and vegan cheese as well, and it was really yummy! I highly recommend that if you go there choose something with jackfruit, it is such a unique thing to have in Europe on the menu (even in vegan/vegetarian restaurants). We also shared for dessert brownie and churros and they were a perfect ending of such a nice meal. Also the stuff was really nice as well! So yeah I am highly recommending this place!

AMAZING! - Edit

I can't fault this place! The food was fantastic and there was a great choice. Staff were extremely friendly, they even managed to squeeze us in on a busy night when we didn't have a reservation and offered to make me a mocktail seeing that I was obviously pregnant. The atmosphere was excellent, very cosy and great decor. We have booked to return here on our second night staying in Newcastle. The only problem is choosing what to have from the menu!

Wonderful all around dining experience. - Edit

The place is packed. Always a good sign! I was fortunate enough to get a table for one on a busy Thursday evening so you way want to reserve you place! Menu is almost completely vegan adaptable if not completely. ? Servers and bartender (I think the cook as well) are all rad women with great taste in music. Nice upbeat energy and the food hit the spot to perfection. Pulled Jack fruit fajitas and nachos with a vegan caramel cheesecake for dessert. Canny!

So good, hard to pick! - Edit

Had a really lovely meal for two. There were so many good options on the menu, it was hard to pick! Went for spring rolls (plentiful) and hoisin jackfruit (amazing) for starters, chilli dog calzone and jackfruit fajitas for main. Good portions and super tasty, only feedback is that I'm rubbish with spice so milder options welcome! Lovely staff, nice atmosphere, only regret is not getting the cinnamon churros. I'll be back next time I'm in Newcastle for sure.

Amazing - Edit

Cannot praise this restaurant enough. Cool tranquil environment, lovely pleasant staff and absolutely amazing vegan food. The vegan pizza I had here was better than all of the non vegan pizzas I've had in the past. Starter and main were both incredible and very reasonably priced, couldn't recommend more!

Pros: Yummiest vegan food for cheapest price, Cool music/art atmosphere, Polite staff

...and I'm feeling so bohemian like you - Edit

Exciting times in Newcastle for all vegetarians and vegans, as The Bohemian gatecrashes the culinary scene. There is lots of menu choice available including burgers, nachos, chili dogs, pulled jackfruit fajitas and chimchangas to name a few, all at affordable prices. Portion sizes are generous too. All desserts are also vegan including a cheese board. The decor is very modern with some great album sleeve artwork that makes for a very relaxing vibe. The staff are also very attentive and friendly. The addition of pizzas to the menu including vegan cheese has just propelled Boho to a new level and so far I have sampled the meat feast, chili and Hawaiian, which were all delicious. Takeaway options are also now available. I am also pleased to see service has improved considerable since it first opened. Looking forward to seeing The Bohemian grow even more. I will definitely be back again.

Bohemian - Edit

A really decent choice and I couldn't decide. I was going to go for the jackfruit but I had the pizza instead. Decent vegan "meats" and they even grated some vegan cheese on it for me. My other half had the Chimichanga and really enjoyed it.

Pros: Great choice, Attentive staff

Cons: Not much to see out the window

Great food but slow service - Edit

I've only been here once but I had the pulled jackfruit fajitas which were absolutely fantastic. Jackfruit is such a pain to make at home so it's great to be able to get somewhere out that makes then - and makes them so well! The only negative thing is the service was really slow. It took us around 45 minutes to get served. We went when they first opened up so thought it might just be teething problems but a friend went again at the weekend and said the service was still slow :(. But if you don't mind the wait then I'd recommend because the food is fantastic!

better and better - Edit

Better and better.

The food, surroundings and ambience improve with every visit I make to this cool restaurant in a fab location of the city. My first visit was shortly after it opened and my expectations were high due to Boho's own description which includes the restaurant being unique, welcoming and relaxed. At first I thought the reception and atmosphere felt a bit formal and reserved and I didn't feel as relaxed as I'd envisaged but I think they are now achieving what it says on the tin.

We had a delicious meal comprising of dishes on the tapas menu during our most recent visit last night. The tempura vegetables were formidable, the standard you would expect at a fine Thai restaurant where they are a speciality. We were very thankful to be squeezed in as they were fully booked, it's good to know the restaurant is so popular and we will def book in future to avoid any risk of disappointment. I would also like to try one of their tempting cocktails on my next visit.

Pros: cool interior. , great food with good vegan choice, good location

Cons: toilets could be better.

Yummy yummy - Edit

Went there twice in the same day. For lunch, I had a kebab, which I found was a bit expensive for what it was. So for dinner I had two starters instead - the macadamia nut mozzarella plate and duck pancakes. I highly recommend those two! Really amazing tastes there and comes to a full meal as a combo :)

Also had a glass of "The Nuts" which is a hazelnut and cream cocktail. It tasted like liquid tiramisu - soooooooo good! ^_^ You can sip in in tiny sips because it's so full of flavour.

Gourmet Fast Food - Edit

Great ambience in this place, pleasant background music (they actually sell vinyl records) and some interesting decor.
The food is good, with the menu mainly comprising of (vegan/vegetarian) burgers, hotdogs, falafels etc.
I wanted to try the cheeseburger (made from walnut and black beans, with a choice of vegan or veggie cheese) but went for the jackfruit kebab as it was something I've never had before (neither jackfruit nor kebab). It was really tasty and nicely presented. I stole some onion rings from the partners plate (he got the hotdog) and they were lovely!
We both had cheesecake with raspberry coulis (all desserts are vegan).
I would definitely eat here again, although my partner felt it was not on a par with some of the other local veggie eateries whilst being priced pretty much the same.
I don't feel that I can list price as a con because you're eating quality ingredients in a restaurant without meat contamination!

Pros: Good food, Great venue, Friendly staff

Authentic vegan comfort food - Edit

Good varied menu. I had the jackfruit kebab, was interesting (I've been vegan since 2007) and satisfying (I eat well). Staff really nice, took 3 flavours of vegan cakes away with me, and all were amazing (even my fussy non-vegan wife thought the lemon cake was the best she's ever had).

The Bohemian will be a go-to for me whenever I am in Newcastle!
