Review: Browns Brasserie & Bar

Happily there is at least one vegan option for each course, including nibbles, sides and extras. If you want a coffee or tea, there is soy milk available on request. For a pretty traditional restaurant (we entered to a live pianist) which I wouldn’t have expected to be particularly vegan friendly, it fares surprisingly well, even if there isn’t lots to choose from.

Review: Victors

Thanks to the lovely Tilly at That Oxford Girl, I was recently invited to try out Victors, a Hamptons style restaurant on the rooftop terrace at the Westgate shopping centre, with a couple of friends. I’ve heard mixed things about the restaurant.

Review: Cinnamon Kitchen

I feel like it wasn’t that long ago that I last reviewed Cinnamon Kitchen, but was excited to hear that Vivek Singh’s Cinnamon Collection was launching a new vegan menu and was grateful to be given the opportunity to visit their Westgate branch and check it out.

Review: Byron Burger Part 2

You may be surprised to see me revisiting Byron Burger after my notoriously bad experience there last year. I must admit I was hesitantly curious when I saw that they relaunched a brand new vegan burger and an overhaul of their veggie and vegan options a couple of weeks ago.

Review: The Folly Vegan Tasting Menu

A last-minute tip off from a friend led me to learn that The Folly was launching a vegan tasting menu, the test run being last Sunday evening. I wouldn’t ordinarily be looking out for vegan events at The Folly as they have nothing vegan-friendly on their regular dining menu at all, but a look at the tasting menu suggested this had the makings of a really great experience…

Review: The Nosebag

I had heard lots of good things about the veggie options at The Nosebag in town, so arranging a catch up with a friend felt like a good opportunity to try the place out. The Nosebag offers a seasonal menu featuring a handful of hot vegan dishes, as well as an array of salads which you can pick and mix from if you prefer.

Review: Cinnamon Kitchen

Cinnamon Kitchen was one of the first restaurants to open in the new Westgate on the rooftop terrace, serving up creative modern-Indian dishes in an elegant setting. I’d spied the menu before they opened and there are plenty of veggie-friendly dishes featured, but I wasn’t sure how much they’d be able to offer vegans with the dairy seemingly featuring heavily. I was happy this weekend however to be proved wrong…

Review: Banana Tree

I’ve visited Banana Tree a couple of times before when I wasn’t vegan, and felt that it was quite hit and miss – if you ordered well, you’d love it, but if you made the wrong choice, you’d leave feeling pretty disappointed. Exploring the vegetarian menu though (most of which is also vegan), I found myself faced with way too many choices.
