Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“I’m not a veggie but this was one of the best meals I’ve had in the last year” – typical praise for these “ingenious” veggies, which offer “an unmatched range of such accomplished dishes, beautifully sourced and expertly presented”. From the “lovely hidden-gem original in Hammersmith” (behind the Hammy-O), they added a similarly “top notch” branch in trendy Seymour Place this year. Islington is probably the weakest performer of the three – “it’s let down by a noisy environment” – but even so it’s “decent and very handy for Sadlers Wells”.
“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”.
“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”.
“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.
