Don’t be misguided by the name – everything at this North End Road eaterie is 100% vegan. Still, being led a little down the garden path is perhaps apt for somewhere championing the kind of fresh ingredients you might find growing in the backyard.
Dishes here range from bean and tofu pancakes, raw asparagus spears and a spinach and avocado salad to vegan roasts, stroganoff made with seitan and burgers made with organic tofu and veggie mince, and served with oven baked chips and homemade ketchup. Desserts include tofu cheesecakes, raw chocolate tortes and vegan ice cream.
Keep an eye out for a good-value all-you-can-eat lunchtime buffet, too.

222 is a great place for delicious vegan vegetarian food. I have tried many different restaurants in the UK and abroad, but 222 remains in the top range of my list.
I got shocked to see this place given only 3 stars... In my opinion was one of the best vegan places I've ate!
And I am not really vegan ... The food is so tasty, the heart of artichokes are to die for!
I am not Vegan but a friend took me to this restaurant and I loved everything I ate. The food was so fresh and very tasty. It awakens taste buds I didn't know I had. I wish I had some recipes to cook like this. I will probably convert to Vegan if I can eat like this all the time. I felt so energised after eating the food in this restaurant. I want a cookbook. The chef was friendly and spoke to us.
Beautiful food, beautiful staff and clean hygienic friendly atmosphere. Food was absolutely delightful
Simply the best restaurant in London if you want truly healthy, delicious food made with love and care!
Excellent vegan restaurant, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the seitan strogonof is superb.
This has to be one of the worst meals I have had in London, or anywhere else in the world for that matter. It almost was uncomfortable to be sat there, the staff had good intentions but were all incredibly meek, as were the other customers. The food took ages, the place was aesthetically pretty drab and after about half an hour there I could feel the life energy being sucked out of me. Don't bother going here unless you are already miserable, in which case you will feel very at home. It was a relief to make it out of there alive :)
I went on a Saturday evening and it was honestly one of the worst dining experiences I have had in London. Two staff were not enough for a crammed restaurant. Even then they still kept squeezing people in by asking existing customers to squeeze up. The food took AN HOUR AND A HALF to arrive. I appreciate any restaurant can have a bad night, but we were not given any explanation or apology by the staff. In the end all tables were complaining about the long wait for food and no one had a smile on their face. The food itself was ok, nothing special at all and certainly not worth the wait or price. An oily salad was a particular low point. Maybe this was down to the strain of a busy night (although that is not an excuse). After all this, we were presented with a bill for nearly £50 for 2 people. There are so many better vegan/veggie restaurants in London. AVOID.
This is one of the best vegan restaurants I have ever visited.I can see a damning negative feedback here but the wirter doesn't even seem to know the difference between vegan & vegetarian cuisine. This is NOT a vegetarian restaurant, although by default all vegan dishes are vegetarian as well. I don't think this writer has ever coooked a vegan meal at home, else she woulld have known that how difficult it is to get the right flavours whilst cooking vegan. And right flavours that's what you always get at 222. She goes on to write "the bun huge & dry...and salad on the side boring". Lady you sound very constipated, do you ever get happy in life, talk about flavours if you really want to write.
The above review is unfair. I have had the same starter many times and it was anything but bland. To my mind, 222 has certainly the best vegan food in London and among the best in Europe. It also excellent value, unlike some other more pricey vegggie places which disappointingly can never make vegan puddings. The puddings and cakes at 222 are absolutely scrumptious, dairy substitute or not.
Really lovely food. I am a non veggie and I love the food at 222. This restaurant has been a great introduction for a non veggie meat eater like me, introducing me to new foods and really good flavours.
The food really is delicious and filling - also very experimental, so you are really getting authentic dishes. The ambience is great! I love 222!!!!!!!!!!!
