I love the food and I love the place. Generous portions, good value for money and you get a table faster than at a normal restaurant. I have visited many times in the last 10-15 years and always had good food. Great puddings as well.


I love this place - its not fancy, but it has good, hearty food, lovely free water with lemone, wonderful soup and home-made bread, salads selection and always a choice of tasty main course. There is even a hefty desert available, juice/ coffee/ tea. It is very small, but people are always ready to make room for you. It is a god send after a day of shopping in covent garden.


The staff are just the most ignorant people I've come across in London. Customer Service is none-existent. The older bloke just kind of grunts and is not the least bit bothered about being even slightly helpful. I bought a takeaway but decided to throw it away after the bad vibe I got from the staff.


this place is beautiful - downstairs into basement, queue, order, grab a table or squeeze in on one, eat super tasty healthy good food, help yourself to water on the table. Not for lingering lunches, unless you do a late lunch and it's quietened down.


So yummy... The permanent queue speaks for it. One of the best vegetarian places in London. Not good if you want a calm environment to sit down for a meal, but if you want a quick, cheap and extremely tasty meal in Central London, it is unbeatable.
