Vegetarian Restaurants in London
Scandinavian restaurant in Marylebone
34 Portman St - W1
Aggi Sverrisson’s “sublime”, Icelandic-inspired cuisine – in particular “a refreshing and very imaginative twist on fish” – again wins one of the survey’s highest food-ratings for his well-established flagship, just off Portman Square. To the odd reporter, the low-key space (actually part of a hotel, although you only find out when you look for the WC) can seem “dull and cold”, but most reporters like the fact that “there’s something a bit different about the style of the place”. “Very warm and welcoming” service only adds to its refreshingly un-poncy approach.
Indian restaurant in Peckham
38 Holly Grove - SE15
For “ace food” and “an upbeat local boho vibe” – “Ganapati does it every time”. Chef Claire Fisher opened this small Peckham venue 15 years ago after travelling around South India. “Everything is home-made from the pickles to the parathas and you can even buy jars of pickle to take home” – and there’s a “fantastic choice for veggies and vegans too”. Top Tip – “great lunchtime thali for £8.50”.
Vegetarian restaurant in Bayswater
74 Westbourne Grove - W2
“Vegan at its best”, agree fans of this contemporary Californian-style operation from Camilla Fayed (daughter of the former Harrods owner, Mohamed Al-Fayed). The cooking is “interesting and highly competent”, and while “vegan food can often be bland, that’s not the case here” – so “if you want your first vegan experience, it’s the place to come”.
. The Spread Eagle
Vegetarian restaurant in Hackney
224 Homerton High Street - E9
“Top vegan food in town, courtesy of Club Mexicana” is to be found at this “cool” east Homerton hostelry: London’s first 100% vegan pub. Even those who feel it’s “hyped” and only “OK if you’re in the area” say “they must be doing something right as it’s packed”.
. Vanilla Black
Vegetarian restaurant in City
17-18 Tooks Ct - EC4
“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”.
Indian restaurant in Fitzrovia
57 Cleveland St - W1
“Unpretentious but brilliant” Keralan veteran near the Telecom Tower, which offers some of the “best-value curry in London”. It’s “still rough as anything in terms of the building but the food consistently nails it” – including some “proper veggie choices”. Top Tip – “the dosas at Ragam are the best I’ve found in London”.
