I'm a meat eater, but went with a friend, and found the food amazing. Great taste, good portion size, really, really enjoyed.

Having walked passed on so many occasions I am so glad I finally booked a table and got to enjoy EVERYTHING before SLAW closes on Saturday to morph and emerge into the next phase of its life-cycle. The restaurant base in Upper Street will certainly be missed.

We really enjoyed the whole experience. The care it looked great, tasted amazing and is the healthiest food you'll find this side of a raw carrot. It's a shame they will be leaving Upper street when there is so clearly a demand for what they offer.

Really lovely food, pulling from the best local producers have to offer. Got chatting with the chef/cofounder, and we talked about their ethos of sustainability, creativity, flavour.

Really enjoyed my experience. Will be back.

Lovely restaurant, totally veg and vegan, nearly completely gluten-free, great concept, incredible tastes, top prices..
Please do go to Slaw to spoil your taste buds and spent a great evening!
Quick though, they are a pop-up, and sadly exist only until end of July

Nice healthy and vegan food, interesting place too, but just very noisy (probably because quite small and busy).

We had a selection of dishes to share among us. The food was exceptional, absolutely delicious. This is not "fast" food, but it is well worth the wait. Service is very friendly.

Wonderful! Complex, savoury and imaginative food. As a carnivore myself, I always worry about vegan restaurants, but vegan friends brought my partner and me and we couldn't have been happier. No sense of sacrifice to eat vegan here -- a great accomplishment, from our point of view, and our friends were delighted too. A huge bonus in this already well-restaurant-ed neighbourhood; we'll return even without vegans in tow!

I wanted to find a vegan restaurant for a Tuesday night dinner with a friend who is vegan. I wasn't expecting much, being an avid omnivore. But I didn't even notice Slaw's food was vegan - it was all so delicious, surprising and I will definitely be coming back. Highly recommend booking a table as it was totally full - even on a Tuesday. Beautiful interiors, plating, tables, ambience and service too.

Great food, very tasty and original flavours. Presentation was nice but could have done with being slightly bigger portions. Personal preference here - but I’m never a fan of seeing the words ‘we recommend two dishes per-person’ and then seeing the price of a dish is the price of a regular plate.

Great plant based restaurant - we loved their attention to detail and commitment to using the whole plant to reduce food waste. Really delicious small plates, would definitely recommend.

The menu is very short, and for two people we ordered everything on it apart from one. We enjoyed the beetroot dal soup and the mushrooms with tamari. The carrot dish was very small and would have benefited from more carrots and the puree and pesto felt out of place. The staff were helpful and smiley which is a great bonus.

We came here as a group of 4 and ordered everything on the menu. Without fail, it was all fantastic - special shout out to the beetroot dahl and the rhubarb and cardamon dessert. The ambiance is great - busy but not in any way overcrowded or loud - and they have a great selection of beers. My husband has previously refused to go to any vegan restaurant and he was a total convert - we already have our next visit booked in.

Food, setting and service were all incredible. So great to have a new vegan restaurant that isn't junk food. This is now my new favourite vegan spot. None of the friends I went with were vegan and everyone loved the food.

We love this place. The food is innovative and delicious and love the fact that are sustainable, seasonal and low waste. The squash curry and carrot dish are particular winners. The guys who own it are really personable and you can tell how passionate they are.

I came to know of this place through a friend and decided to take my husband here for a surprise birthday treat. The food was packed with flavour, staff was kind and pleasant, their minimalist theme and presentation was elegant and well executed and their ethos of using locally sourced produce with reduced waste is the most inspiring. We were the first customers for the day, so got to choose the best table - which is beneath the sun roof by the kitchen station.

We tried nearly all the items on the menu and they were delicious. Also, their pistachio ice cream and chocolate ganache is something not to miss!!

Im so glad we went here. We will definitely be returning with more friends.
