Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

A neighbourhood veggie spot with an informal terrace.

Lunch-only spot Bühler + Co serves the best kind of small plates: seasonal veg in well-executed vignettes, which showcase unexpected flavours and aren’t so small that you’re left fighting over the last mouthful of ancient grains.

Bao buns filled with jackfruit or to-fish (yes, tofu-based ‘fish’) were the only vegan options that tried too hard, and they were the least successful. The rest of the eclectic menu was confidently vegetarian; favourites included beetroot salad that was a jamboree of feta, smoked almonds, crunchy Chinese cabbage and truffle dressing. It shouldn’t work. But it did.

Heartier small plates included the Galushka Hungarian dumplings, which were twizzles of comforting dough in a bright pea and mint dressing, and pearl barley risotto with a snow of hard cheese covering juicy mushrooms underneath. Some dishes fell short of expectation; the halloumi fries were overcooked and dessert truffles were one-note of coconut oil, but the wait staff were friendly enough to make up for it. Interiors are also charming, featuring a terrace and conservatory room out the back, and inside a look-at-me gold ceiling, terrazzo tiles, and Scandi aesthetic wooden hooks around the walls. It’s a well-loved local’s restaurant, and it’s easy to see why.
