Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent vegan meal. Really tasty and original menu. We were spoiled for choice. Great selection of beers too. Lewis looked after us really well and was very helpful.

One of the best vegetarian/vegan restaurants we’ve eaten in. Good size portions and really tasty. Well thought out menu, would definitely recommend to anyone looking for this type of food next to Cambridge station.

Delight vegetarian and vegan food and now a favourite when visiting Cambridge. The food is delicious and there are several choices. A bit overpriced (like most of the vegan restaurants, unfortunately), service ok. Overall a great place to eat. This review has been written after...few visits: as usual it is based on food quality, staff attitude, atmosphere and local-standard value for money. Over the last twenty years I have been travelling for business (and not) reason and I have discovered a lot about the world of catering.More

We visited as part of our wedding anniversary weekend to the UK, and were looking forward to dining here as the menu looked interesting and the sort of food we enjoy. Firstly the positives; Very easy to find opposite the train station The venue itself...is welcoming, contemporary, clean Good ambiance The music was a really nice choice and at a level that was background, so enhanced the evening rather than interrupted it The American IPA beer was superb The temporarillo wine was very good The Schezuan Aubergine was excellent, very good balance of flavours and nice heat Friendly, relaxed waiting staff The starters were ok, nothing special (I make better hummus at home), though the sauce with the pancakes was good And now for the negatives; We arrived at 8pm and ordered quickly as we knew what we wanted and were famished. However, nothing arrived at our table until 8:25 .... at which time the nibbles we ordered arrived at the same time as our starters, which is not normal - nibbles should arrive straight away with drinks, whilst starters are prepared. So there ended up being far too much on the table and nibbles don't really compliment starters! As for the nibbles - we ordered the harissa nuts which had absolutely no taste of harrissa whatsoever and were very bland. The olives were not good quality. I'm a big fan of olives and the quality of olives often indicates how good the rest of the meal is going to be. I wouldn't expect to be served pitted olives in a restaurant. Redefine steak - I guess this is a personal choice, some people will love it - we didn't, and were still picking pieces out of our teeth the next day! But more disappointing was the sauce it came in, which had a very strong flavour of raw garlic and ruined the dish. We ordered tirimisu, which was extremely dense and stodgy, unlike traditional tirrimasu. I think it would be more reflective to call it tirrimasu cake ( We did not raise these issues at the time because we were both very tired after having a long day travelling, with a delayed flight. Plus it was our anniversary and we didn't want to have the evening marred any more than it had been already. We did make some positive comments on the couple of dishes that were done well (we always give credit where it is due) but we were not asked about any of the other dishes or if they were ok) We had 2 nibbles, 2 starters, 2 main courses, 2 desserts, 2 drinks (we hadn't eaten all day!) and the cost was £120 - I feel it was a bit expensive for what it was. But the worst was yet to come. That night and the next day one of us had a very upset stomach (and the other one of us experienced the same on the day after dining).More

Fabulous 5* Vegan restaurant, right up there with the best of them. Had a superb lunch, all 3 courses, and some excellent beer. Service and staff were good and only problem was deciding what to choose from the extensive menu. The highlight? Their take on...a black forest dessert - heavenly and honestly my favourite ever. Our first visit and liked it so much booked again before we left for later in week.More

Fantastic vegan food; great selection, great service. I can't wait to go back. My only regret is that I could only order 1 item out of the vast menu! Also, it's 1 minute walk from the Cambridge train station, very convenient.

I was telephoned earlier in the day and asked to move my evening back 15 mins as they would be busy - which was fine. However it became apparent during our visit that they had overbooked themselves. Service was very slow and they needed to...be promoted several times. My food was lovely. My friend found her curry too hot- madras- usually medium and her tiramisu was very cold and firm in the middle- obviously not quite defrosted . A bit disappointed to be honest. Visited a few years ago which was a much better experienceMore

Absolutely award winning meal! My husband and I are pescatarians but certainly open to vegan food also. Both our meals were soooo delicious. My husband had the ‘sea bass’ and I had the jackfruit bowl. The flavors were so well complimented and the presentation was...outstanding. I bought the cookbook and am looking forward to seeing if I can recreate some of these dishes. We are here on holiday for another six days and we are planning on going back at least one more time if not more.More
