Summary

“Still producing exceptional veggie dishes after 25 years”“the best in town” – this popular duo are “a good advertisement for meat-free food, proving it can be interesting and full of flavour”. The original – an intriguing “converted artists’ loft” that’s “hidden away” behind Hammersmith Odeon – is “splendid in an area devoid of decent restaurants”, while its younger sibling is “really convenient for Sadler’s Wells”.

Summary

“Who needs meat?” – some of London’s best vegetarian cooking is to be found at this quite “stylish” duo; the Hammersmith original occupies a “bright” and “airy” hall near the Broadway (recently refurbished), while its “noisy” newer EC1 sibling is “handy for Sadler’s Wells”.

Summary

“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.

Summary

“A welcome addition to Islington” – the new N1 branch of this veggie duo wins praise for its “calm” style and “fresh and interesting” cooking; it’s not yet as highly rated as the stellar Hammersmith original, however (reopening, after a major refurb, in late-2013).
