Having recently moved back from Brighton to London, we were keen to find a good vegetarian restaurant. Yesterday was our second visit to Mildred's, which I would call a cafe, rather than a restaurant. On both occasions we were blown away by how unfriendly the staff were. Yesterday the young lady in front couldn't even bother to walk us to a table, instead gesturing towards the back for us to make our own way there, only to be left standing there as two other members of staff did pretty much the same thing. The guy who took our order, was the first and only person during both visits who a actually made us feel welcome. The other two yesterday, were just robots. My partner ordered a burger, with sweet potato fries, and I had sweet potato and broad bean curry. Our food arrived shortly after our drinks, which was surprising. Was it cooked to order, or simply microwaved? If only, both our meals were cold and the sweet potato fries, had clearly been cooked much earlier. The guy who served our meals was as cold as the food. Our food was taken back, and re-appeared, this time piping hot. The food on both occasions have been average, no more. Presentation scores 2 out of 10. I was rather surprised that on receiving our bill, no one had really offered an apology, or even a coffee on the house. On leaving I mentioned it to the one lady who had served our drinks. She offered to call the manager but as we were in a hurry, she asked for my email address. She whipped a pen out that was wedged in her hair for me to use. Nice touch I thought. It's now been a day later and I've not heard from the manager. Perhaps we've been spoilt by the vegetarian restaurants in Brighton, as Terre a Terre is our benchmark of what veggie food can taste and look like. My advice, get on a train to Brighton and eat at Terre a Terre. Even AA Gill rates it very highly.

Considering the reputation this restaurant in the hear of Soho has gained during the years I wanted to try it myself. I heard enthusiastic comments about it so, in my mind, it was a sure shot. I was wrong, very wrong. I had a dish of curry with rice and some sweet potatoes, my friend had the meze mix. Starting from my dish: the potato chunks were ok but the curry was absolutely tasteless, watery and runny, the rice clearly microwaved (cold outside, piping hot inside, not many doubts about it) and the overall presentation quite poor. But my friend had the best surprise: the dish looked visually ok, nothing outstanding a bit pricey for a meze mix but still reasonable. The only thing is that he found a massive hair that looked like a chunky human hair but turned out to be a brush hair. The waiter apologized and called the manager who came explaining that the hair was coming from a brush and my friend has been offered to order something else for free and that the dish would have not been charged. He ordered a side side dish because he had lost his appetite in the meantime. But when the bill came, another surprise. They still charged the dish on the bill, they charged the service and no-one said even goodbye on out way out. Mistake happens, they shouldn't if you have such a reputation, but there are many ways to handle them. But more than the hair, more than the bill, more than the service, there are no excuse for microwaved rice. I can have at home all the times I want.

Food is ok however service can be hit and miss. Not a comfortable nor nice environment to eat in and if you need to query/raise an issue do not expect to get resolution readily or easier. Customer Service seriously lacking.

SHOCKING ..... rude rude rude..... honestly i will not want to give them the time of day or the change from my pocket. They have no comprehension of service or indeed basic manners. if you fancy overpriced food with a side portion of arrogant attitude swing by to Mildred's

disgustingly RUDE. it is just bizarre to think they can get away with it.... charm school evaded the front of house staff, instead they managed to fall out of the arrogant tree and ht eery branch on the way down. Well done Mildred's for be a shining example of how NOT to do it.

this is one of my favorite places in london, the food is really good and while im always a little skeptical of places that serve a range of world cuisines, everything I have tasted here, from burritos to laksa to burgers has been delicious! it has friendly funny staff, nice lighting and really buzzy atmosphere. It is a great place to go with a vegetarian date.

Great food, the final bill was more than expected. However, meal was ruined by the service. Our meal took almost 45 minutes to arrive. When we asked the server finally about our food - we were rudely told that it had only been 15 and to wait patiently. After that it was impossible to get any service at all.
