More about Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant, Edinburgh

Established in 1962, Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant is more Edinburgh institution than trend-following vegetarian eatery. Still, the flagship of this famous family of eateries can certainly compete with any chic inner-city vegan and vegetarian joint in terms of cool points. Decked out with sleek furniture and creative lighting, though still with a comforting and casual atmosphere in their historic Hanover Street location, this vegetarian restaurant befits cool cats and business types as well as it does health-conscious or ethical eaters. That said, however, Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant doesn’t rely on its enviable New Town location, cool design or suave lunch crowd for its reputation.

You may be impressed by Hendersons recent expansions around Edinburgh, or their growing popularity and praise around Scotland and beyond – but the proof of the pudding is, as always, in the eating, and Hendersons proves that being guided by vegetarian and vegan principles in no way limits possibilities in terms of flavour, creativity and enjoyment. Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant on Hanover Street has become one of the New Town’s most beloved restaurants over the past half century, a reputation undoubtedly built on the superb quality of their food. The menu changes regularly, but you can be sure of a bevy of heart-warming treats, from internationally inspired dishes like Thai spring rolls and slow-baked Moroccan stews to local necessities like organic fresh bread and oatcakes.

Lovely! Food was great and a lovely atmosphere. A good place for vegetarians and even people who aren't. The staff were very friendly. Would eat here again!

Table for large party reserved as planned. Quick efficient self -service even at such a busy lunchtime coming up to Christmas, and great selection of good quality food.

We both had an fantastic vegan lunch, the soup was flavoursome & our main courses delightful. Later that afternoon we came back to meet our son for afternoon tea. We were so impressed we returned for the excellent vegan breakfast the following morning. The vegan porridge was outstanding.

Very enjoyable meal served by friendly and helpful staff. Main courses were served hot and were tasty. Service was prompt without trying to rush. Excellent choice for a pre-theatre meal.

The food was great as usual. Having dined in the Hendersons vegan restaurant recently, however, the decor in this one could do with a refresh and our table was so crammed in beside other tables that I had to ask a person at the neighbouring table to move so I could sit down. Close to our table was a 'Danger: Asbestos' sign on the ceiling which was a bit distracting, and nobody informed us that they weren't accepting card payments until we'd received the bill so my husband had to go and get cash from the nearest ATM. The food was wonderful but these few things marred an otherwise lovely evening. The satay skewers with pineapple salsa is amazing, and we really enjoyed the falafel with tartare sauce.

Fantastic restaurant. Really quaint lively little place. Decor really suits the atmosphere they are trying for. Staff very extremely nice. Food was really really good, and the portion sizes were massive. Take mental note, make sure you are really hungry, or only have 1 course :). Service was unbelievably fast too, we had our wine before we had even finished ordering our food and the food itself practically appeared as if by magic with no wait, and was extremely hot so knew it was freshly prepared. The piano playing while we ate just added to an extremely wonderful experience.

We visited the salad table and had a wonderful meal. My husband and cauliflower wings as his appetizer. He had the Henderson's Haggis and I had Vegan Pad Thai for dinner. Both were wonderful! My husband loved his meal so much that we bought their cook book so we can make it at home back in the US. Dessert was incredible too. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone!

As a consummate omnivore, I booked this restaurant more for sentimental reasons-to celebrate mom's 72 birthday-as she and my late father had celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary there some 34 years ago. Out large party was seated immediately, I was pleased with the food, mom enjoyed the ambience-live music etc. Our waitress was attentive, if a little rushed off her feet. The cake was yummy. I'd recommend this but I am confused, as I love meat but really enjoyed this food.

Overall our experience was fine except that the waiter was very keen to clear plates and took away any that were finished with, even though the others at the table were still eating. I don't feel that this is particularly courteous of the waiter as I was always taught to wait until all had finished before clearing. It felt a bit as if he was in a rush to get us out! However, the food was lovely and we would probably eat at Hendersons again if we were in the town.

Great food and location. Service was a bit slow but it was busy. We booked online but when we got there the folks knew nothing about our booking - something for Quandoo to look into? Luckily there was a table free for us. Recommend the Haggis but remember to not eat a thing all day as you will be VERY full after a visit to Hendersons. One of our favourites.
