4 of the Finest Vegetarian Restaurants in London

BY cushion the impact

Luckily for those of us who enjoy a meat-free diet, being vegetarian no longer means soggy tofu, limp salad or a token dish on the end of a menu. As well as a more varied range of vegetarian food in restaurants in general, there are numerous vegetarian restaurants in London, which have well and truly shattered the common belief that dinner must contain meat and two veg. Next time you are planning a vegetarian meal in London, pay a visit to one of these fab restaurants.


Not only does Manna in Primrose Hill serve great vegetarian food, many of the dishes on offer are also gluten free. Diners can make themselves comfortable in the fairy-light adorned dining room or in the conservatory, before deciding which dish to choose, such as vegetable tempura, cannellini bean sliders, Indian pizza, masala spiced salad and manna meze are just a few of the regular dishes available. If you really enjoy your meal at Manna and would love to learn how to recreate it, have a look at the cooking classes and courses run by the restaurant.

 Food for Thought 

This cosy basement restaurant in Covent Garden has been serving Londoners for almost four decades, so it’s safe to say the team know exactly what they are doing. The menu changes every day, and sample dishes include Hungarian goulash with paprika roast potatoes, Moroccan chickpea and sweet potato bake, gado gado tofu noodles and a selection of mouth-watering desserts. Bear in mind that it is cash-only and you are welcome to bring your own bottle.

 Vanilla Black


For those times when only a Michelin-recommend restaurant will do, book a table at Vanilla Black near Chancery Lane. The owners and chefs have succeeded in their aim of challenging the preconceptions about vegetarian food being bland and boring. With a menu featuring brie ice cream, pickled plums and mulled custard, salted and ash baked celeriac and foraged sea oysters and goat’s cheese and toasted cauliflower mille feuille, the food here is anything but boring.

17-18 Tooks Court, London, EC4A 1LB Telephone: 020 7242 2622


When confirmed carnivores head to a vegetarian restaurant you know it must be excellent. Mildreds falls firmly into this category, with its range of internationally inspired dishes appealing to meat-eaters as much as vegetarians. With a menu including tagines, curry, ravioli, burgers, quesadilla and more, it’s not surprising to find how popular Mildreds is but remember you cannot book a table so, given the popularity, it is wise to head there before you are ravenous.
