“Excellent vegetarian food”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Really enjoyed choosing from the wealth of luscious dishes on the menu. It's not often that you find so many good choices. Quantities were good and presentation appealing. Very reasonable prices. The only downside is that the access is difficult. Friend on crutches made it down the narrow stairs but it simply wasn't worth her effort to try to get to the bathrooms, back upstairs.

“Birthday meal”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Decided to go there for a big birthday, had a delicious artichoke in filo pastry for my main course which was very filling and told the waiter it was my birthday. I had a delicious pudding and when it arrived it had a candle in it and people in the restaurant sang happy birthday! Fresh, tasty food as ever. Only downside to this place is disabled access.

“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.
