En Root provides gorgeous plant-based Indian fusion cuisine, from delicious and nourishing Rani health bowls and Rani wraps, to generous sharing platters of Masala Dosa and Don Dada platters. This can all be enjoyed in a warm and friendly environment, surrounded by bright lights, welcoming staff and enticing smells.


Café Van Gogh


With a 100% vegan menu, this charming eatery is a must-visit for anyone trying out a plant-based diet. The gorgeous ceiling is painted in the style of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’, and the rounded walls of the eating area make you feel transported to a quaint astronomer’s tower. But it’s not all just aesthetics: the food, too, is out-of-this-world. With a seasonal menu that changes every 6-8 weeks, you can guarantee to never grow bored.




Whilst not entirely veggie, Octagreen boasts an extensive, varied and tasty vegan and vegetarian menu. The main dishes vary from Mexican butter beans to vegan baked aubergine with mixed vegetables and a gorgeous vegetarian moussaka. Their huge selection of hearty salads are all vegan, and they also offer organic coffees with vegan milk alternatives. Plus, their self-serve and on-the-go takeaway style allows you to enjoy your food at your own convenience.


Clean Kitchen Club


Located in the iconic Battersea Power Station, Clean Kitchen Club is an entirely vegan restaurant serving scrummy plant-based burgers, wraps and bowls.
