For a quarter of a century, Adrian and Michael Daniel have been serving London’s finest and most innovative vegetarian meals. Their restaurant The Gate in Hammersmith spawned a legacy for another wonderful place in Islington. And the brothers follow traditional cooking that they grew up with: blending Indian and Arabic cuisines, adding Jewish flavours and spices and methods of preparation. The Gate in Hammersmith is a celebration of everything that’s tasty and rich in natural flavours – by employing carefully sourced ingredients and showing great affection for every food item The Gate will surprise you in many pleasant and unexpected ways.
See, your grandmother was right all along: First and foremost you’ll need a certain amount of love and affection for the dishes you prepare – everything else will follow. By blending and combining foods from many different culinary backgrounds, Adrian and Michael Daniel succeed in giving each and every vegetarian meal that certain je ne sais quoi that makes The Gate in Hammersmith so very, very unique. Here, Arabic and Middle East meals meet Jewish cuisine, add to that a certain amount of Italian and French influences, and there you have it: London’s top spot to find out about the many pleasures of fine vegetarian dining.
Try feta and cous cous fritters for some authentic Mediterranean taste, or go for smoked tofu and spring mint vegetable roll served with a sweet and sour dipping sauce and pickled pink ginger. Teriyaki aubergine. Caesar Salad. Curious? We thought so. There seems to be nothing the Daniel brothers cannot do. The Gate in Hammersmith is an absolute gem, and it delights us to see that they’ve been successful at creating their own version of culinary excellence for a quarter of a century. Here’s to the next 25 years of innovative healthy food.
Great atmosphere, delicious food, staff was very friendly. Highly recommended
Food and service were excellent. This is a perfect venue for vegetarians and vegans and an excellent restaurant for non vegetarians as well. We will be revisiting again soon.
Friendly and helpful service delicious and imaginative vegetarian food. I loved the light space and the simple decor. A really lovely lunch and I would go again.
That was the best dinner ever! I love The Gate - both of them in fact. Last night was wonderful. The service as always was impeccable and the meal surpassed even those on my previous visits. The pea soup was unbelievable (what's the secret?!) I've never tasted gnocchi like that, and the best cheese I've ever had! Thank you.
We took friends from Yorkshire and we all had a great time. The staff were very friendly and the food was fantastic. The presentatin was excellent and gave us a few ideas for dinner parties. We will be back.
