Really enjoyed lunch here. We had the deep-fried buffalo cauliflower tapas as a starter, which was fantastic. Then I had the Saitan burger (excellent texture and flavour and well garnished) and the italian 'sausage' sandwich, which my wife seemed to like. The charcoal lemonade was an experience too (black, as you'd imagine).
The concept here is to serve vegan versions of non-vegan style food (burgers, tapas etc) and they do it very well. I'd love to see a slightly broader menu but appreciate it's better to do a few things well that a lot of things badly. The interior's lovely and the service friendly and relaxed. Prices are perfectly reasonable for a very tasty lunch (£32 for two mains with one starter and two soft drinks, no deserts)
Still can't get that buffalo cauliflower out of my mind.

Thank you - overall we had a lovely evening. I offer the following feedback - I understand you may not agree or change anything as a result. The starters were lovely - the tapas selection was a great way to sample lots of different dishes - particularly for those of us who are not vegans. The main courses were a lot of all the same thing - the nicest one was the Beetburger - the others were either bland (Buttermilk burger) or over-sauced (the Ribs) - the sauce was so rich that my friend, the vegan, was unable to finish the dish. The cocktails were fun but the non-alcoholic beer was not mainstream - we thought they were a bit too specialized in an effort to be cool. The wine selection is too limited for us and the red we chose wasn't a particularly good example of a Shiraz. The staff were very helpful and gave good service and the ambiance was good. As a non-vegan, I don't really understand why most dishes had a meat-related name - although I did like the play on FRYDAY - very clever.

Lovely ambience and staff were lovely. We weren't rushed and were able to sit and chat and relax. Cocktails are a must and the Pecan and Macadamia Tart was to die for!

We came with a family member who is vegetarian so this seemed the perfect choice to cover all bases when I googled. As fully paid up member of the carnivore race I am not averse to trying anything fresh and healthy this restaurant was all that I could have wished for and more. I will definitely go again and tell others.

As a confirmed carnivore I was surprised at how tasty and filling the food was I had cauliflower burrito and did not miss the meat
I tried some of my wife’s noodle dish and could happily have eaten that
A lovely evening will definitely go again
I only really booked it as it was close to Norwich arts centre but would go and take other carnivores

Inventive, fun naughty but nice cooking! Naughty in its calorie count and feel-good factor, nice in it's no cruelty vegan selection. Highly recommended for fun flavours and delicious sharing dishes.

My only real criticism is that it took a while to get staff attention at each point in our meal. Had to wait quite a while to place our order for food and drinks and I noticed other people waiting too. Food actually arrived pretty quickly and was really lovely but then it again took some time to be offered a dessert menu and nobody popped round to see if we needed any more drinks. Ended up taking our bill up to the counter as it was hard to flag someone down to make payment. This wouldn't stop me returning, however, as the food is really great.
