So I didn't realize it was Vegitarian/Vegan when we saw it on yelp. We sit down and the carnivore in me immediately notices there's nothing with a face on the menu. So we started with the Mediterranean Tart and a Miso Glazed Aubergine. The Aubergine was surprisingly tasty, while the tart was also a real treat.

The bread was ok, the wine and beer were ok, and the thail was just ok. I really liked the courgette... more

I really want to give this place 5 stars! But the issue is that I have been slightly underwhelmed both times I've visited. Still, I will continue to return, as veggie restaurants deserve all the support they can get! This time around I had the veggie burger - the menu was a lil misleading as I thought the patty would be made from jackfruit, (as using it as a meat substitute certainly seems to... more
