“Serious, thoughtful and imaginative” veggie cooking has carved out a big name for this Hammersmith fixture, and its newer sibling near Sadler’s Wells; they’ve lost their mojo a bit in recent years, though, and W6 seems more “densely packed” and “café-like” since its recent refurbishment.

"the noise level is so loud, it's impossible to have a conversation. wooden floors, concrete walls, glass ceiling--there is nothing to absorb the sound. the food is becoming less original and most recent visit main courses were served lukewarm. in addition, we noticed that many of the dishes were actually prepared in advance and just reheated--very poor form!"

"This restaurant will make any carnivore turn vegetarian. Everything on the menu is delicious we have never had a bad meal at either hammersmith or islington location. easily the best vegetarian in town. unfortunately, the renovation at the hammersmith location has made the restaurant extremely noisy (wooden floors and wood panelling with high ceilings--dreadful. even worse, the tables are almost on top of one another so forget about having a private conversation or even having a conversation if there happen to be 4 or 6 people next to you. perhaps they could add 1GBP to the price of the meals and remove a few tables. They also charge 3GBP for the breadbasket--i wouldn't mind paying for it, the bread was stale and ordinary."

"As a long-standing fan of The Gate, I returned after its revamp with some trepidation. The wooden offcuts on the wall soften the big space, but the tables are jammed in very densely. The food, though remains excellent."
