We're not vegans, used to be veggies but used to come here a lot for healthy lunches and the international platters were served in large portions with a real welcoming smile. As a result you would often see the unusual sight of suits next to saris, all happily munching away. Seems there have been quite a few changes as the... More

Our expectations were high as we entered WFC on our last London trip. And our expectations were met! Lovely and kind staff, loved the vibe of the place and being able to see the food being made. It's a small and friendly place with enough room to eat a lunch without feeling to crowded. We went back again just to... More

Very spacious inside, good food mostly eastern Asia, parking hall at the rear. Friendly attendants, but you are likely to be ignored on long queues if you don't book in advance.

First time in a place like this, while food, everything raw ingredients, the staff were all cute and synced in their uniform and their passion for the job. The price of the cheesecake was quite high but it was nice to give it a try! I also got a coconut drink served in a real coconut and it was very... More

We wandered into Neal's Yard looking for somewhere to eat thinking that this restaurant was still closed as it has been for months now. Lovely surprise to find it open again. Wholefoods, vegan & mostly gluten free with raw as well as cooked food. We ate the 'burger' made from shitake mushrooms with various trimmings & salad on the side.... More

Ok I'm not vegan but I'm trying to cut down my meat intake so this place is GREAT. You'll be sat with other people. Not always great. Service was a nightmare waiter/waitress not communicating so lots of wrong things (try and be very clear) - also never wait for them. Always grab the attention when you need something and be...

The place is clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. The chocolate tart and the lemon tart are delicious. The tea comes in a cup and it is average. Of course this is the vegan heaven, if not for the price. The atmosphere, the service and the cake are superb but it is too expensive. For two tea and... More

Came with my mum and her husband. Great atmosphere, amazing food. Love this place and will certainly be back. Had the masala dosa which was incredible. The super food salad which we shared as a starter is equally as good.
