One of the best meals I've had in years. And to think that I stumbled upon it on a brief stop in London! The ambience is cool, relaxed, but with an attention to detail tipping its hat to fine dining. My server was friendly, gracious,...More
Came for lunch to the Bistro when I saw that PMK in Wortley changed their menu just the week prior and for me it seemed a bit more limited than the Bistro. Had the enchilada which was outstanding. I would have that again in a...More
While the restaurant is vegan, you don't have to be to enjoy a great meal out downtown. This is the second spot to open in the Plant Matter Chain under Glen Whitehead and the quality and value one expects at a Plant Matter location is...More
On such a very cold night we wondered if 'going vegan' was a good idea (would it be hygge enough??). Much to the delight of our taste buds it was very good: tasty, inventive, fresh and nice serving sizes. The wine was good and not...More
This "high end" vegan restaurant did not disappoint from beginning to end. My friend and I had the following apps, mains, and desserts and ALL very were of very high quality and taste: pumpkin soup, roasted beet tower, bistro bowl, root vegetable ravioli, chocolate cheesecake...More
We tried Plant Matter Bistro for the first time today after many years of enjoying Plant Matter Kitchen. Some how they out did themselves! The service was phenomenal, there was only one waitress, almost every table was full and she was killing it. The entres were so good. I had the sweet potato gnocchi which was absolutely delicious despite my distaste for mushrooms. We shared the chocolate cheese cake and the vanilla bean creme brule, They were both amazing, I cant even pick between the two to make a recommendation.
Preface: I'm not a Vegan or Vegetarian, but I am a Celiac. I'm always open to any type of food, and I was blown away by how good my entree was. We shared an appetizer, which I would recommend getting more than one (for a group of 4) but it was great as well. Gluten free options were clearly labeled and plenty of options. I would recommend for anyone, and if you are a meat lover do yourself a favor and order the pulled jack-fruit bowl. You will not be disappointed!
this is one of the best restaurants i've ever been to. the staff are incredible, and the food is incredible and so pretty! they have many food options and many drink options!
Delicious vegan food served in a more upscale atmosphere. Definitely a date night place.
Small portions but it is a high end restaurant so it was to be expected. The food and atmosphere were perfect.
Soooooo yummy!! Amazing service!
Most ahhhmazing gourmet vegan restaurant in London. Food, service, atmosphere, everything. Perfection. Would recommend 10/10 to anyone and everyone. ���
Great atmosphere, great food, great drinks!
Went with a party of 6 for a work lunch. The service was very fast. I ordered the po boy with ceasar salad. The ceasar salad was AMAZING but the sandwich was a little bland. It would have been nice to be offered condiments, unfortunately the server didn't ask how our food was so I didn't have the opportunity to ask. It was not air conditioned and was very warm on a hot day (might have just been down). Overall though I would return!
Went for the first time with my Vegan sister from San Francisco. She said it was better than any Vegan restaurant there! We had stuffed portabello mushrooms and sweet potatoe gnocchi. Both were fabulous. Have returned many times since and highly recommend to all my friends. Vegan or not, you will love it!
A work lunch brought me here but I was curious to try since it came on the scene. The space is long, deep with tall ceilings so the atmosphere can be quite boisterous when full. Our party was 10 people and we pre-ordered but our meals still took a little while - they claimed a rush before we showed up. Not really an issue, unless time is a concern. However, even with (despite?) the pre-order, our presence was kinda...overlooked? No drink orders taken without prompting and the servers seemed very disorganized.
My meal was the Po'boy sandwich (crispy tofu | avocado | lettuce | tomato | onion | garlic aioli) with a side Caesar salad. The tofu had a great crispy batter and all the toppings worked very well together. The salad was good, the classic taste not missing a bit, but the lettuce was a bit wilted/soggy. I ordered the chocolate cheesecake as well and was very happy with every bite.
My first time at a vegan restaurant and I was not disappointed.
We shared three different mains (ranked in order of deliciousness):
1) chickpea & mushroom burger
2) sweet potato gnocchi
3) the pomodoro linguine
In addition, we tried the daily soup (a strong Thai-flavoured concoction) and the dark chocolate cheesecake. I was thoroughly impressed with how well each item was made despite great ingredient limitations.
Unfortunately, this review is brought down a star due to some bizarre service. Near the beginning, while our waitress was listing off some of the specials, a green bead-like object suddenly dropped onto my napkin. I thought it was a piece of jewellery that had come off her bracelet, so I picked it up to return it to her. It was at this moment that I regretted my action, as the bead was sticky. Turned out it was her cough medicine, and she nonchalantly said: "Oh that's just my cough drop", picked it up, and proceeded as if nothing had happened. No apology, no new napkin, and three very confused customers. It was an accident, but her whole attitude about it and throughout the evening was a bit off-putting.
Otherwise, PMB seems like a fabulous location in London for vegan options.
