Best Vegan Restaurant in BCP

We have been eating here every three months or so over the past four years. It has recently expanded its vegan menu significantly. Its food was always tasty and unique. Now it has even got better. The staff/service is great too and the pricing represents very good value for money. Highly recommended!!

Pros: Range of vegan dishes , Taste, Pricing

Amazing must try curries

Ordered a takeaway for 2 from here, some of the best curries I’ve had in a long time, flavours that you haven’t experienced before combos that you wouldn’t have thought of. Amazing!

Wealth of vegan options

While not being fully vegan/veggie, this restaurant has so many delicious dishes to choose from. Have visited with non-vegan friends and they’ve loved their plant based dishes too!

Cannot fault

Been here a few times now, and every time it has been absolutely wonderful. Huge selection of vegan tapas style options, I’ve tried all of them (except the 2 or 3 mega spicy ones) and they are all great. Service has been so great every time, everyone is so cheery and friendly. 50% off of food Mon-Wed (!!!) and a great selection of cocktails! It’s a shame you can’t give this place 5 stars because it deserves it!

One of the best places I've eaten at!

We happened upon this place when the place we had booked was closed due to being pinged.

We hadn't book and the place was busy but the staff were great. We would have taken anything and we managed to sit at a small bar in the corner.

The food was exceptional - great selection of vegan options - so we tried a bit of almost everything! It was all delicious!

The staff were lovely and so helpful.

I wish there was one nearer where I live!

Would have been a five star of allowed.

Food was really great, loads of vegan options clearly marked in fact most of the menu was vegan or able to be made vegan. Worked for us as my non-vegan husband was able to order a couple of things for him but everything else vegan to share. We also got 50% off food as we went between Mon-Weds so meant we could order loads to try. Service was quick and friendly too. Would give 5* if we could :)

Pros: Loads of vegan options, Delicious food, Great service

So many vegan options

Delicious food! Fantastic vegan options, particularly the pineapple curry. A little pricey because you want to order so much, but worth! Also really good cocktails.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Bit pricey

Really nice placd

Had the delicious Fat Sisters pumpkin curry with a roti, and also the mushrooms but they were too sweet for me due to too much caramelised onion - would get them on the side in a separate dish. Tonnes of other vegan dishes, including GF options, on the menu too.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Affordable, Good staff and music
