This restaurant blew my mind and opened my eyes up to how many amazing vegetarian dishes you could enjoy. We went as a couple and shared the Meze starter which was to die for! Everything I love on a plate. Picture below! I then had the vegi chilli and my part we had the vegi curry. Both absolutely stunning and... More

I went on my own, paid for what sounded like a mouth watering rich tomato aubergine type bake. Received a small microwaved dish of unappetising watery, lumpy ricotta (?) 2 slices of aubergine(?) hotness. Wish I'd gone to the pub!

Midweek catch up with a friend. Really busy so I was glad I booked. All veggie options that sounded great. Jerk Halloumi - excellent. Shared some corn cakes to start with a chilli dip. Great food, really tasty. Great spot on the Chevin, quirky building which added to the fun. Definitely want to go back to try more delicious food.

As ever the food was very tasty and the service was first class, but please, please employ someone who can make a cup of coffee. On two occasions now I have fallen for ordering a cappuccino and I have been very disappointed on both occasions. I thought the first one was a one off mistake but no the next one... More

The positioning of our tables and seats in the dingy upstairs area meant other customers could not leave without one of our family members standing up and moving out of the way. Even when sat down, I was unfortunately annoying the man on the table behind me as my chair was up against his. Having the only menu downstairs without... More

Excellent veggie food, tasty, well presented and a great variety. Water on the table whilst waiting for the drinks order and arrival would be nice, not a criticism but a suggestion. Bravo to the chef 👍👍👍

Brilliant food, especially the cakes. Great wine too. You have to trek to find it, but well worth the effort

I have visited this restaurant a few times over the years and I'm always happy with the food. Staff are friendly the venue is informal and the food is a little bit different to other places and good value. Tonight I ordered potato skins which I was slightly disappointed by because what arrived was 5 potato wedges covered in cheese.... More

Wow!! We are soooo full of delicious vegetarian delights! Fun mid week girls night of chatting and a LOT of food! We opted for the 4 person banquette and the mezze, starters, mains and pudding were just endless! Enough to feed a small army!! You certainly won't leave feeling hungry! And all for less than £20 each! Lovely friendly staff,... More
