💭  If looking for London’s best vegan tasting menu was my aim, this definitely came close. Those first five courses in particular were heavenly. There’s so much flavour in there and the portions are decent for fine dining. Dimly lit with that perfect buzz you get from a well-packed restaurant – the atmosphere is spot on. Everyone – from the wait staff to the chefs – was friendly and welcoming. It’s all about the food here. A couple of the chefs spoke to us and you can just feel the passion. I loved it here!

🏆 Faves: The first five courses from the welcome snacks to the nasi jagung. If I had to choose, the arepa probably just beat the others

🙅🏼‍♀️ Wouldn’t order again: Its part of the tasting menu so not really optional but the flavours in the dessert just didn’t do it for me
