The Swiss know, it seems, what it means to live and eat holistically. tibits restaurant is the initiative of a Swiss family, three Swiss brothers indeed, named Daniel, Christian, and Reto Frei. With a little help from their friends and legendary vegetarian restaurateurs Rolf and Marielle Hiltl (of Zurich’s Haus Hiltl fame), they founded the London outpost of tibits in London’s Mayfair (not far from Apollo Victoria), an eatery that is a unique proposition in London’s already niche vegetarian restaurant scene. Choose from over 40 vegan and vegetarian dishes and drinks at tibits Heddon Street’s gourmet buffet, open for breakfast through to dinner, and only pay by weight!
It’s worth knowing that tibits is an international phenomenon, with eight restaurants in total across Switzerland and now the UK with the opening of tibits London’s Mayfair premises. Unsurprisingly for a restaurant committed to vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, the menus are highly seasonal, keeping an already exciting offering on its toes all year round. At the time of writing, diners to tibits Heddon Street restaurant were being treated to summer specials like the Turkish bulghur wheat-based kisir salad, Lebanese tabbouleh, Japanese nasu dengaku (glazed aubergine), Italian gnocchi Verano, Cuban yuca con cebolla, Indonesian tempeh and more.
Get the picture? With the utmost respect paid to the mighty artichoke this is the globe’s best vegan and vegetarian cuisine, cherrypicked and brought fresh as can be to table. tibits is fighting the good fight (alongside a good number of other London vegetarian restaurants) for the notion that you don’t need meat to beat hunger, and you certainly don’t need meat for food to be exciting. You can certainly do without meat for healthy eating, and it’s the balance struck between exciting, international flavours and a healthy conscience (on the ethical and biological levels) that tibits has got so very right, here in London’s Mayfair and in their continental outposts, too. Book a table at tibits’s popular premises down Heddon Street and watch the disappointed walk-ins turn green with envy!
I always love a trip to Tibits. A great selection of veggie options and a great ambience. Nice to use the downstairs area to eat.
Great food and cocktails. The self service set up is really convenient if you have somewhere to be afterwards. The food can be a little on the pricey side but only if you start piling your plate really high.
Just what was needed. Everyone had what they wanted. We could sit outside. The choice of food was excellent. No one missed having meat. Excellent.
