A visit to the original Gate in Hammersmith has always been a special treat - one that I haven't indulged in for too many years. I remember saving up for a meal there when I was much younger. I used to be vegetarian and the choice of decent restaurants was very limited. The Gate and Blah Blah Blah always stood out.

Excellent vegetarian restaurant. I'm a meat eater, but I'm always on the look-out for places to take my vegetarian girlfriend.
