“Good Find”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Rainbow café is in a narrow alleyway leading off Kings Parade down a stairway into a rather cramped basement but the reward is with a menu of vegetarian food. The atmosphere is friendly, the interest in vegetarian and vegan food a serious one and the service is good, I had garlic bread Latvian potato bake which were great.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I've been visiting here for years and it's always great food, friendly service and good value.
Great choice of vegetarian food and even my meat-eating children enjoy it.

“Good esp if veggie”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Great location near Kings College and ideal if strict vegetarian. You can't book so we timed it well as people were queuing to get a table. Ours was near entrance and a little draughty.

Typical veggie menu with good vegan choices too. Bit disappointed with garlic and rosemary bread - I expect fresh herbs as normal
now.

Staff friendly and helpful.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Visited for an early Sunday lunch, arrived at 11am which was just as well as apparently it gets really busy. The place is down an alley, down stairs in a small basement which is quaint and cosy. We are not veggies but having looked at the menu online the sound of some of thedishes attracted us. I had the Latvian potato bake, my wife had a special of nasi goreng, both veg and gluten free. Both were plentiful and very tasty. I enjoyed it so much it made me wonder why I eat meat if veggie can be this good. Prices are very reasonable, fruit juice drinks of various kinds are refreshing & tasty. Will definitely return.
