Beautiful freshly cooked food. Lots to choose from. Service both swift and friendly. I dine here often and for good reason :) The best veggie/vegan restaurant in Swansea.

Unlike the 80’s and 90’s when almost all restaurants only had one vegetarian option (if that)? Vegetarian food is now more popular than ever. Yet it is still amazes me that many places still don’t really see the potential of serving quality vegetarian dishes. I...More
