Had the spicy tofu and black bean burger with polenta fries and avocado salsa, the texture and taste was amazing, absolutely gorgeous! Would have loved the sticky toffee pudding but was absolutely stuffed! Fabulous vegan choices can't recommend highly enough, lovely service too!

The food was excellent (as always) and the staff were very friendly. Some of the less positive reviews really seem to have missed the point of Caban: quality food in a friendly environment, without any pretentiousness.
