Have eaten here a few times and find the food very good, and great value. However on my last visit we found one or two of the staff to be a bit "off", bordering on rude really. You are a bit squashed in and they do fill up quickly. We didn't stay for coffee/cake as we normally do as the... More

The food here is very tasty vegetarian fare. At a very reasonable cost, you can choose from a variety of piping hot dishes served up with a green sald. The dahl with rice is delicious, as is everything I have ever tried there. I can highly recommend this place for the food. My only issues here are the size and... More

It's the second time I have been to this restaurant and I had a great lunchtime main meal of lentil and cheese bake with a roasted tomato and garlic salsa. Yum! (maybe I should add that this is a vegetarian restaurant). I went with my young son (aged 7) and he chose salad. There was a lovely selection of different... More

I visited with my mum yesterday and it was amazing. Great food selection, friendly service and the food was delicious! I had the lentil Dahl and my mum had the tomato and spinach lasagne. I also had some vegan chocolate cake. OMG it was AMAZING!! Can't wait to return and bring my husband! :)

This place just amazes me, how do they cool food so well with no meat, I love meaty dishes but am so converted to vegetarian food, well done to all.

We live just around the corner, so we seldom eat lunch out. In fact the only reason we lunch out is so that we can enjoy the excellent food here. We are not vegetarians, but when you can have food as good as this, who needs meat? The meals are all freshly cooked and very varied, and we have never... More

What can i say other than thank you for another cracking lunch. The best dhal and chutney! Mr B had spinach lasagne which was tip top. We followed with a slice of carrot cake and a slice of courgette cake too as could not resist. Well worth the "ready to burst" feeling! See you real soon!

Went in with a girlfriend as we were that end of town and were hungry. She had tomato, mushroom and green bean lasagne with a dressed salad and I had the delicious cauliflower and tomato tagine, spices blended perfectly. It is a scrubbed pine table type of restaurant, where you collect your own knives forks and napkin then the food... More
