Genesis Vegan Restaurant
I feel like downstairs was a bit bland and could have done with some of the cactus/ decorations that upstairs had. The food is nice but not worth the money , especially as you have to order it yourself. I’ve been to better vegan restaurants in London
Really pleasant experience at this restaurant, nice, chilled staff. Only complaints: expense for what it is, plus being too heavy handed with chilli and salt, otherwise totally delicious.
The service at this restaurant was shocking. Particularly given the price charged for food. Firstly, I booked using this website and when I arrived, the waitress looked confused and acted quite rudely as though we were lying when we mentioned our booking. Next, the male waiter/server was extremely softly spoken. The music was reasonably loud yet he refused to speak at an audible level, causing both my friend and I to have to awkwardly lean over to him in order to hear what he was saying, as well as having to ask him multiple times what he had said. The servers also kicked up a fuss about offering us tap water for the table. First they tried to convince my friend to pay for "still water" instead of simply allowing us to drink water from the tap. Next, we were not allowed to have a bottle of said tap water on the table and were only served small glasses. I had walked a long way to get to the restaurant was was quite thirsty and when I asked for a second glass, I was assured one would be brought to me, which did not occur. Overall, very disappointing. This restaurant is very expensive for the shocking service.
Great concept, really enjoyable and has a great menu. Food was a little too saucy which overpowered some taste.
My partner had a burger which was delicious. My Middle Eastern salad was fine, but a little mushy. The cocktail was awful, I couldn’t drink it. Service was good - I’d go back for a burger but wouldn’t waste money in the expensive but bad cocktails again.
Amazing food, really cool restaurant, and even my meat eating friend absolutely loved it and wants to come back. Cocktails are also amazing! Will be returning soon :)
Food is lovely but so expensive for what it is, i mean fries with some kimchi on them for 7.50... bit over the top. also the tables are extremely close to one another so don't come wanting to have a private chat.
This was my first visit to Genesis, which had been recommended to me by friends and colleagues as a place to visit when in London.
I was told I’d be surprised by the quality, however I was blown away at what dishes (that would be traditionally protein based) the Genesis team recreate with plant based ingredients.
I’m a lover of burger and fries, however my partner is a lifelong vegetarian and generally, when we do visit a restaurant that caters for my preference, she cannot access much other than a few vege’ options. It was terrific to be presented with a full menu we could both choose from and share - even better with the very welcoming team on hand to explain each menu item in advance of ordering.
The milkshake is phenomenal, make sure to try this if you visit!
Fully recommended for everyone, it will certainly be on our itinerary for our next trip to the area.
A great venue, amazing food, blew us away. Service wasn't fantastic - forgot one of our dishes and some staff were a bit too stoned.
Stunning food from a fantastic menu and helpful staff. What's not to like!
Great food, gorgeous interior! Very good panko avocado tacos. Good value for money.
I love this place! Have recommended it, and will be back soon
Fantastic service, absolutely brilliant food and lovely place
Really delicious and different vegan food. Best place to go if you are new to vegan or want to know what things you could eat, or are trying to convince somebody else!! Great cocktails too!
The food here was delicious, and I especially enjoyed the tacos and the matcha mint milkshake. The chef also accidentally made an extra portion of sweet potato fries which we enjoyed. The pink theme throughout is also really good. However, it is relatively expensive but worth the price.
Such a great variet for food and tasted great. Great for a casual dinner or catch up with friends,very relaxed very chilled. Great decor. Have the vegan bbq chicken wings, they were delicious. Nando's style service so you order at the till and pay and then it comes to your table. Portion sizes were good too, we order two mains and two sides and struggled to clear the plates
The food was over cooked and not as tasty as I was hoping for.
The food was really amazing, the staff is super friendly, the interior is beautiful and photo worthy. Everything goes really fast and the location is really good
The vibe of this place is amazing, we loved the food and would come back! We had one lovely waitress look after us and was super helpful but in between we had another girl seve is food who wasn’t overly friendly! But all in all great place, amazing decor, yummy cocktails! A vegan dream!
Amazing variety for vegans and veggies. Looked and tasted great. Cocktails were expensive or i’d have had more than one. Would visit again.
The restaurant is okay, I personally feel it is overpriced. My vegan shewarma wrap arrived luke warm, and the total cost was £85 for 4 adults and a toddler. There did not seem to be much leeway or room for people with allergies to be offered alternative foods. My allergic child did not eat any of the food she was given and we paid full price for her (adult sized) meal.
Genesis had some really nice dishes, the genesis burger was fantastic alongside the jackfruit taco. However, some dishes didn't seem to be that flavourful, such as the souvlaki. However, the brownie and ice cream were fantastic and I would definitely make this trip again!
The venue is quirky and interesting and the food looks and tastes great. Food wise is pretty good value but the drinks are a bit expensive. Disposable cups were a bit of a surprise and quite unnessary for a business oriented around being a bit more sustainable
Really really enjoyed my experience. Easy to find. Nice location. Staff were very friendly. Menu was easy to read and food was tasty. 100% would reccomend and come back. This is my first vegan restaurant but defo not my last.
Amazing as always. Tried the shawarma which was perfect and large portion. The peanut butter milkshake was the best and so filling. I couldn't finish part of my food but I don't like waste so the staff gave me a takeout box to take the rest home. Lovely service :)
Amazing little find! It was our first time there and all the staff where so friendly. We were offered recommendations which where rightly recommended (Doner and zucchini fries) Our waitress also told us about the brand and it’s founders which was really interesting and lovely to see staff have been taught this. Coming from a hospitality background it was lovely to find a current, warm and friendly little restaurant that have great staff and great food! Also hats off to your marketing team - every little detail has been thought about. Branding on point! We both will definitely be back! Lizzie x
LOVED IT the food is stunning and tasted amazing. Defo recommend the brownie with honeycomb ontop! The genesis burger is an absolute banger and i cant believe its all vegan. A little pricey but definetley worth it
What a great find. Super use of amazing ingredients!!
Amazing food! Really nice decor too. It's my second time here - love it.
Really cool looking restaurant, but the food was a bit naff. I was really disappointed.
Love the food and cocktails. Staff are friendly and the lady who served us was soooooo nice! We had a big group, she was very patient and helpful when it comes to food allergies and intolerance.
Had a very average burger (it was quite sloppy) and we were seated in a windowless basement which I didn't really enjoy but others may not have a problem with this. Reasonably priced so good for a quick lunch.
Some dishes were amazing, others were terrible. It's just far too hit and miss to recommend.
This was a fantastic experience the food was absolutely brilliant especially the duck tacos and the mac and cheese! The restaurant has a great ambience and the service is quick. The staff all know what theybare talking about... it is great for a change to order anything I what not having to worry about diary, milk, cheese or soya! Prices are reasonable... one you try is out you will want to go back!
Delicious food! Warm friendly service. Very cool atmosphere, jackfruit taco is a must!!
Great variety of food, funky, cool décor. Been twice now and will definitely go back. Lots of variety and good for non vegans to show them how exciting veganism can be!
Too expensive for a no table service. Not enough variety.
Not vegans but party had 2 vegetarians, food tasty and good choice and variety. Creative menu in diner style which had s really nice vibe and atmosphere. As previous comments have said although staff friendly and attentive 1 meal and 1 side came out after everyone else’s had eaten. Sort this out and you have 5 stars
Lovely atmosphere and tasty food Im definitely planning to eat there again !
Great restaurant. Lovely vibe, accommodating and friendly staff. Food was fantastic and I’d definitely go again.
