4 out of 5 stars

A menu of healthy food designed by a nutritional therapist and a diverse non-alcoholic cocktail list.

The definition of redemption is ‘the action of being saved from sin, error or evil’. But don’t let that put you off visiting this oh-so-healthy eatery. Redemption’s not on any sort of preachy mission. Despite the lack of booze, and the abundance of vegan and wheat- or dairy-free options, a meal here is not a hair-shirt experience. 

The restaurant – which follows three successful pop-ups – has non-alcoholic beer and a small range of mocktails served in vintage-style glasses. The Apple ‘Mock-jito’ was refreshingly minty, and the ‘Lettuce Spray’ a full-bodied blend of iceberg, lime, wasabi and aloe vera.

But it’s the food that really stands out. The grilled aubergine slices with tahini were chewy – almost caramelised. If we hadn’t polished off every morsel of our beetroot-and-barley risotto, and raw courgette spaghetti with walnut-and-sesame pesto, we might have left room for pudding. 

Sadly, we lacked the willpower. At an adjacent table our neighbours opted for a cashew, coconut and strawberry ‘cheesecake’. We eyed it covetously, plotting a return visit. 

Redemption now have a second site, in Shoreditch. Time Out eating & drinking editors.

As somebody that enjoys plant-based and raw foods - yet does not restrict to this diet completely - I am always looking to try out the 'healthy' London joints. Having visited the Shoreditch Redemption branch, I was keen to try out my local west venue. 

I ordered the raw bowl and, although I don't think it was quite worth the price, it was delicious. The service was incredibly friendly and as a laptopper, I was not frowned upon. The fresh juices they sere are also wonderful. I opted for the Bombay love, it was firey but not too overpowering. 


As a flexitarian, I enjoy trying new vegan/vegetarian restaurants. I recently went to this place with a group of friends. I ordered the jack fruit curry. All of us tried a bite of each other's foods. Apparently my order was the tastiest among all. One friend ordered the maki roll platter and even though I liked it, she thought it's lacking flavour. Another friend ordered the jack fruit burger which she wasn't happy about,but again I quite liked it (I have had a jack fruit burger in another vegan place and in my opinion they tasted the same). I personally have an open taste and it rarely happens that I don't like anything. However, when it comes to healthy food, it really depends on personal taste. For many people taste is of great importance. Other than that, everything went well. The staff were attentive and helpful. The speed of service was on point. And we even got a bowl of blue chips with hummus as a treat from the chef :)


I wanted to love this place. A healthy, vegetarian restaurant would really solve my social calendar dilemmas. Sometimes my weeks are packed with back to back eating out and I worry I'll end up the size of a house. However, the food was a little bit lacking in my opinion. Not awful, but not great either. I ordered the "pulled pork" jack fruit burger which was basically just fruit and sauce shoved in a tasteless burger bun. If you're not going to try and emulate meat then don't have it in the title! My friend ordered the black risotto which did taste better but was far too salty. We both liked the sound of the banoffee pie and I'm not usually one to leave my desert but the "biscuit" base made from dates was so thick and stodgy I really couldn't bring myself to eat much of it. 

They do have a good range of non-alcoholic cocktails (only one alcoholic drink available FYI) but the service was really slow even though the restaurant wasn't busy and one of the waitresses was quite rude. However, my main concern was that the food wouldn't be filling enough which is often the case with healthy restaurants but we were both pleasantly full by the end of the meal.

All in all it was a fairly average meal. Not really worth the trek it took to get there though (it's not that close to any tube stations).

We went for the Gastrolab tasting and it was fantastic!!! We were greeted with a welcome drink which was so refreshing followed by some snacks (I.e. Kale chips, olives, etc.). It was exactly what we needed. The rest of the tasting came out perfectly. I must say, all courses were delicious and I'm not a vegan myself. My boyfriend is vegan and he was quite pleased! Compliments to the chef and team at Redemption. Definitely one of our favourite coming from a foodie couple. Will make our way back!


My partner surprised me with a booking to this restaurant. I am vegan so I was pleasantly surprised that they accommodate vegans. 
He ordered the daily soup and I got the aubergine tahini. Both were excellent, very filling. The drinks were quite tasty too. 
Very nice quiet restaurant with a romantic feel to it. We did however find it was slightly pricey.


I really want to give this place five stars but I just can't, sadly. Nama Raw in Notting Hill just has, overall, better-tasting food.

My husband and I got many of the menu items so I feel qualified to give a thorough review. I got the aubergine and tahini with toasted pine nuts and pomegranate seeds and the baked sweet potato and sumac, with coconut yoghurt and more seeds as a side. The main was just...OK. Whilst the aubergine was well-roasted, it still lacked flavour, even with the tahini. Disappointing, despite the generous amount of slices. However, the coconut yoghurt on the sweet potato was awesome. It comes as a light foam and it really ramps up the potato base, which is dense enough but cuts well with a fork. The yoghurt is so good that even my husband, who proclaims how much he hates coconut, loved it. 

He got the asparagus black rice risotto with "Parmesan" and rocket. The portion is generous again but... the flavour is again just "meh." It could have been so much richer IMO but was bland overall.

I got the spiced chai latte to drink and my husband got a berry smoothie. My chai was served lukewarm, which drove me nuts. Why wouldn't you serve a chai hot??? I think it tasted fine- nothing particularly special- except for the lovely presentation. My husband liked it much more than me. His berry smoothie was fine, nothing too exciting.

For dessert, we got the bliss balls: which come as 4, are dark chocolate and date truffle, rolled in coconut. A few berries round out the dish. The balls are quite good, with a perfectly dense texture and not overtly sweet.

My husband got the apple crumble with almonds and it was AWESOME. Seriously, I am a chocolate girl through and through and I couldn't stop raving on this. FYI the menu warns this takes 15 minutes to make as it's hot, but this came to us in less than 10. 

However, AVOID the dark chocolate and cashew mousse; raw cacao and avo mousse layered with orange and cashew cream. It is literally tasteless. We talked to the manager after and even she made a kind of face when I mentioned this dish, noting the chef is likely taking it off the menu soon.

My husband got the orthodox Russian cold press coffee. He asked for it be warmed though and said it was OK overall.


The skies may be grey and full of gloomy rain but from inside the doors of Notting Hill’s exclusive vegan, non-alcoholic restaurant Redemption, comes their angelic January detox menu, filled with colourful, clean food.

The food is filled with goodness (and quite a lot of quinoa) and as a result the dishes are filling and won't leave you craving more.

The drinks are also a highlight as although there is no alcohol insight, they have created a collection of feel good cocktails, including the flu fighter, which helped wake up my tastebuds!
