Foursquare Tips

  • 4/5 stars: Much of the food has an Asian/Middle Eastern flavour, probably because the original owners, brothers Michael and Adrian Daniel, are Indo-Iraqi-Jewish, which means lots of spicing
  • Very good vegetarian food! Quite slow service though.
  • Ignore the fascist meat-obsessives. Have a great veggie meal here free from the smell if cooked horse.
  • The Halloumi Kibi is a perfect summer dish, while the Huevos Rancheros (Mexican breakfast of fried eggs on salsa and tortillas) make a hearty brunch.
  • The bunch of meat eaters sharing this meal with me loved it - especially the aubergine Schnitzel. The starters were okay, but the mains are so much better. Really creative kitchen. Have a rosemary G&T
  • Finally a vegetarian restaurant that just feel like a 'regular' restaurant. Good service, nice place, great dishes.
  • Excellent food. Risotto is superb
  • The chipotle polenta was delicious and everything else looked good too. Lovely service as well.
  • The food is good enough to satisfy a meat eater easily. Amazing.
  • Trs trs bon, des plats de toutes beauts!
  • Not clear if "optional" service charge goes to staff or into owners pockets. Food OK.
  • As the quintessential carnivore, I was a bit skeptical, but the involtini starter was really yummy and tasted meaty! I did not leave hungry :)
  • What a find! Incredible food. Try the carrot and ginger smoothie. Amazing!!!!!
  • The best cheesecake of my entire life (with caramelised pineapple and coconut).
  • Go to Ottolenghi instead, the food here is very uninspiring and overpriced...
  • Has vegan and gluten-free options
  • The mezze is a good way to try some of the dishes
  • Great vegetation food
  • Amazing vegetarian. Try the biodynamic wines!
  • I'm a hardcore carnivore & was a veggie restaurant skeptic until The Gate made me a believer. The Miso Glazed Aubergine is delicious, melt in your mouth goodness. The wild mushroom main is also tasty.
