My main course, the vegan thali, was honestly one of the nicest things I’ve eaten in a long time. As the menu explains, ‘according to Indian food custom, a proper meal is a perfect balance of all the six flavours sweet, salt, bitter, sour, astringent and spicy’ and this meal really did deliver on that!
Followers of my Instagram will know that I’m a big fan of The Coconut Tree, on St Clement’s Street. In fact, whenever new followers send me a message asking for recommendations of where to eat, I will always tell them that the Sri Lankan bar/restaurant is my number one place to get good vegan food in Oxford.
You might recognise the restaurant featured in this review, Bbuona Pizza Bar, under its former name, Buonjourno e Buonosera. As a pretty traditional style pizzeria, Bbuona Pizza Bar isn’t on board with the vegan cheese, but there are plenty of labelled vegan options on the menu.
