“Who needs meat when you can eat like this?” – You don’t have to “be in touch with your green tea side” to be “seriously seduced by the grown-up vibe” and “exciting cooking” at this “sophisticated” and ambitious meat-free operation, “tucked away in a corner just outside the City”. “I’m a meat-eater and always thought vegetarian meals were about lentils and beans, but the food here is delicious, creative and elegant without being pretentious or fussy”.
“Beautifully presented meat-free food” – arguably “the most adventurous vegetarian cuisine in London” (and at “incredible prices given it’s so central”) – inspired numerous rave reviews and much more consistently upbeat feedback this year for this ambitious operation near Chancery Lane.
This ambitious and upmarket veggie operation near Chancery Lane has divided opinion this year, with its food scores falling dramatically. For fans, it still serves “vegetarian food lifted to the level of fine dining” – “imaginative, bursting with taste and barely a lentil in sight”. But there was much unaccustomed bitter disappointment too: “fell really short…” “landfill…”, “they must hate veggies to treat us like this!”
“Seductive and tasty vegetarian food” from an “impressive and expansive menu” at this modern Chancery Lane establishment make it “great, even if you aren’t a veggie”: “I went with a meat-eater, and it’s one of their favourite places!”
Vanilla Black Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Exceptional vegetarian and vegan food. Inventive, stylish, decent size portions. Charming efficient service. Amuse bouche and bread (with more offered) included in the (reasonable) fixed price. Recommended for veggies and non-veggies alike. "
"Makes vegetarian food exciting in a tucked away corner just outside the City."
"A sophisticated restaurant tucked away from the bustling streets of London. The dishes were delectable and very satisfying. Great for celebrating a special occasion or a special treat because you can."
