Had a delicious valentines meal. It was a set menu that evening - a surprise when we arrived - but perfect for the occaision which we hadn't expected to be more than a quick snack after we had donated blood at the nearby hospital.
Fabulous menu, the food was perfectly cooked, the restaurant was decorated very nicely with a pianist in the corner. The staff were busy but also attentive enough that we weren't left waiting too long between courses.

Really well put together menu with lots of options for everyone, whether you like meat substitute or are gluten free. Lovely to have so much choice. Definitely on a level with Mildreds.

Waitress was cheery and helpful. Would recommend.

Really nice modern looking restaurant down the St Georges end of Garratt lane.
Went for Sunday lunch. long and interesting Vegan menu. Sadly after ordering
were told quite a few things were not available. The starters took 45 minutes to arrive
and then main courses quite a while too, BUT they were absolutely delicious, Black bean burger, ToFish and Chips, and best Vegan Pizza we've had anywhere. So if you are not in a hurry and feel
like a nice long chat with your companions I would recommend highly .

The food was amazing but the service was really poor. They had been let down by their regular staff resulting in only having 1 waiter (on his first ever shift) on a busy Saturday service (practically a full house). He did his best trying to manage all the tables and assist the deliveroo and Ubereats drivers but he could only do so much! The manager was apologetic and happily discounted our bill.

I cannot stress enough that the food was amazing. This Saturday was just a case of some unfortunate events. It won't deter us from coming back.

Not only imaginative, but absolutely delicious! A great range of things to try and enjoy as a couple or with friends. I can personally vouch for the excellent Moussaka, and the Portobello Mushroom Stack. Warm, friendly staff are able to recommend dishes to those looking to experiment, or who just want a hearty meal. The professional but relaxed atmosphere means this is a perfect place for date nights, special occasions, and any time you want some delicious food for lunch, or by candle light. There were 2 vegans, out of a party of 6, who were really happy to have such a wide choice of dishes, and our meat eaters were amazed by how tasty and satisfying everything was. This was a our second time going, and we will be going again, and probably again, and again.

Interesting place in rather a boring part of Garrett Lane. The food is aiming high with prices to match. However feels like a cafe so maybe more suited for lunch. Excellent olives, hummus and bread started and the triple fried chips were good.

Delicious, beautiful food. Had three courses and cannot pick a favourite! Flavourful array of food from fresh mango salsa and guacamole to tasty tempeh, seitan and tofu to fried plantain, onion rings and chips...and that was just for starters. It was hard to choose from their pizza menu, but was happy with my white pizza choice. Somehow fit in dessert - raw chocolate tart with soya cream - and it didn’t disappoint! Can’t wait to go back! Easy to get to and just a short walk or bus ride from Tooting Broadway or Earlsfield.

We're a couple of non-vegans who had heard great things about this place and wanted to try it out on a date night. The food was absolutely amazing. Beautifully served, wonderfully varied, and delicious to taste. The service was also very good, as they are a really friendly couple

The only point to note is that it has a bit of a 'canteen style' diner in terms of interior and ambiance, rather than a restaurant vibe, but the basic and natural décor does suit the ethos

Overall, we thought the place was brilliant, amazing food for decent prices and served by friendly genuine people. We would recommend it to anyone

Above everything else, I should stress that the food was beautiful. However, the service was extremely poor. We arrived at 8.25 as a table of four and there were only two other tables of two in the restaurant at that time. Our orders were taken straight away, but we then waited over an hour for our food to arrive while another table who arrived after us were served first. It was disappointing, especially when a service charge is added automatically to the bill....

After searching online for vegan places to eat I came across vegan express. Had two different main meals and some sides and I must say, their food is impeccable. I'm a massive potato fan but would give up potato for life for their sweet potato chips, such goodness. The place was very calm and serene. Went home feeling refreshed and so very nourished.

The nachos were really dissapointing, the guacamole was really cheap looking and tasting (similar to the kind you get at cinemas) not at all what I would expect at a restaurant.

There is a long way to go for this restaurant until it becomes a place I would actually recommend to anyone.

Food was delicious; certainly one of the top 5 vegan places in London. The service was slow despite the fact that we were one of only 3 or 4 tables at the time. The sharing board came without the sauces; we had to ask separately for those and inspect the board against the menu description to figure out exactly what's missing, as the kitchen staff assured the waitress we must have everything.

The pizzas were certainly the best vegan pizzas we've tried in London. Also, a very interesting selection of vegan beers and wines. Certainly worth the drive if you're not from around that area. Free street parking after 5.30 pm weekdays and all day weekends.

Love this place. The food is fresh and tasty, sometimes can take a while to cook but at least you know it is cooked from scratch! Great place to catch up with friends whilst knowing that nothing on the menu has harmed an animal-guilt free eating :-)

I am really impressed by the broad vegan menue. The food was fine dining quality. I had the bean loaf and my date had the tandoori tofu - both delicious and very nicely presented! We enjoyed this with a good IPA and topped it off withe a toffee dessert - just great! The staff was really friendly and welcoming as well!
