Middle eastern restaurant blends Indian and Arabic cuisines with Jewishness. I like! It looks good AND has vegan options clearly marked. Anyone been? It looks a little pricey, but probably fancy?

I've been to the Hammersmith one a couple of times, but all pregan. I think the general verdict is that it's excellent for vegetarians but the vegan options are either a bit lacking or dull. The Hammersmith venue is lovely though. We took some omni friends there a while ago who still visit fairly regularly.

I went last year. All good apart from the vegan crumble which was a tower of stewed fruit with some dust on the top, not a crumble.

I have the first cookbook but have never cooked from it.

Mat.

I went to The Gate in Islington the other week. Was fairly impressed. I left a review on Happy Cow if you're interested.
