I chose a Yakisoba from set lunch menu. Al though It's little bit strong for me but tast like real Japanese source YAKISOBA. I liked thire presentation and tableweare. Good taste.
Overall it is a good veg restaurant. Had the set lunch. A bit expensive. Beet root Soup was only ok. Starter was Kale salad, excellent. Main was stir fry, good.
Service quite slow, very friendly but given it wasn't very busy, was surprised about how long the food took to arrive. Otherwise very happy, although portion sizes were quite small
Disappointing service. Took visiting colleagues there for a lunch appointment and found the service to be disengaged. Most of us ordered the lunch course. At the end of each dish, we had to tell the waiters to clear up plates. Nobody asked if we were in a rush, or whether we were done with your food. A colleague who ordered the Ethnic platter had it sitting there throughout dessert--nobody bothered to ask if he was finished or why he barely ate it. Finally, they served 2 colleagues the desert while keeping the 3rd one on wait even though they ordered the same thing. Service seemed friendly, but in the end it was disengaged and oblivious to what we needed.
Better for brunch than dinner, where the dish portions aren't quite filling enough. Great setting though - lovely space with homely decor. Service felt a bit rushed.
The environment is good. Service is okay but the food is not that impressive especially the raw tiramisu taste strange. I will try it one more time.
Waitress forgot our order several times and kept coming back to check but otherwise it was a nice atmosphere and nice, original food. Will go again.
This is a very nice vegan restaurant! Enjoy dining here for weekend brunch! The drinks are very tasted and healthy. Will come back again for sure.
The smoothies and juices were impressive. Not many options for vegans. Most of the popular dishes had free range eggs. The desserts were pretty good too.
health conscious food with vegan options, good vibe, beautiful decoration, spacious seating. It has a very interesting and special alcohol menu with Chinese herbs infused
