The Best Vegan Restaurants in Mayfair

 

The most original dining location in London has updated its menu – subsequently becoming one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. Mourad Mazouz’s quirky restoration of a sprawling Conduit Street townhouse may be more widely famed (and disbelievingly admired) for its wacky art house interior. Welcome to Sketch.

Indeed, it is a once in a lifetime dining experience, if Balamory was rolled in a toy-box and glazed with beatific artisan glaze: In the central restaurant space alone (The Gallery) pastel, clam-shaped seats riddle the paint-splashed interior cava of the space, and pop-art traverses the walls.

Sketch is a coral reef — teeming with inkblots, illustrations, chaos and live music —and there is no more interesting and electrifying place, no wonder guests need the soothing machinations of afternoon tea to stay afloat. Sketch’s afternoon tea now offers a perfect vegan supplement —for example, a dainty cauliflower breakfast dip rather than eggs.

The sultana scones don’t skimp on the indulgent doughiness of the original thing, and the Japan sencha green tea is the ideal sweet accompaniment the cake treats. This is one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair, bewitching you into a wonderland topsy truly tea party where plant based treats litter the delightfully chintzy decor as truly imaginative alternatives.

Maddox street’s own harbinger of authentic Lebanese cuisine takes the olive, spice, chickpea and garlic base ingredients to new splendid heights as one of the naturally best vegan restaurants in Mayfair — the Aline Lebanese kitchen.

An intoxicating, warm energy suffuses the space around Aline’s Kitchen area — featuring a cosy, elongated 30-seater table section of biblical proportions, where (in true environmental flourish) lush ferns grace the back of the seats and flowering fruit arrangement (the combination of Lebanese seasoning and violet petal perfume makes the air within heavenly).

Conscientious,vegan food and comfort food are not paradoxical. As proved by Aline’s, one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

We recommend enquiring about the flatbread of the day (such diverse vegan options are also,sadly, rarer outside Aline’s warm walls). Whether you prefer cold mezze (with red chilli hummus) or hot mezze (where sweet red pepper elevates the earthiness of potatoes) or have a sweet tooth (Orange blossom tea makes a heady finishing elixir) there is something for you at Aline’s.

Of course Half Moon street would host a starburst of glamour in the form of the boutique Fleming Hotel. But did you know this sweet nocturne spot also includes the fabulous Ormer eatery —one of theist vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

While the chic tradition of low saturate lounge decor, Dalmatian hue carpeting, and a grownup dark-wood-walled interior advertise the tradition of Mayfair style. The cute miniature lamps at every table also make sure to make every guest booking feel like the centrepiece of a scene of classical glamour. However, Shaun Rankin’s utterly distinct, thoroughly varied vegan menu reminds us that the Ormer is also not afraid of evolution and modern progress.

The Michelin star holder’s take on a meatless tasting menu proves that quality ingredients and high-end conceptualised recipes work without waste produce —and veganism works within fine dining. The Saffron broad bean risotto ensures that refined ingredients doesn’t mean the fullness and satisfaction of a dinner course, but there is also the likes of a delicatessen chilled hibiscus soup for lighter fair. And the coconut parfait makes for a winningly innocent dessert. Of course Fleming’s Ormer won a mention for one of the top 5 restaurants in London, let alone one of the best vegan restaurant options in Mayfair.

Meanwhile, Benares on Berkeley square brings some Indian flare to the best of Mayfair’s vegan restaurant scene. In a smartly exacerbatory touch — the calming cappuccino coloured tiling, and the pure, soft white of the interior (from the cloud-like bracket sweeping across the walls to the pristine tablecloths) is the only meditative element of the fabulously alive Benares. The Indian cuisine means the flavours on offer are as broiling with fiery flavour as they are confidently upscale.

No Vegan diner will feel amiss, the vegetable based menu is style with its own distinct style; not the absence of something from a main, or a cheap alteration, but real authentic infusions of flavour with plant-based energy. Jack-fruit in pickling spices, a green chilli kofta decorated with sauteed spinach and peanut, and Moorish potato and pea samosa remind off what delicious conceptions can be concocted with pure,natural ingredients.

And with such a dazzling, candlelit bar lounge sequestered above the eating area- its a good thing Benares has also created a firecracker of a vegan cocktail: the Green Spice Martini shakes vodka into a Ginger-Lemon-coriander and red chilli fusion—after all, vegans just want to have fun.

Vantra Longevity was vegan before it was cool. Not just including, but innovating and thriving off the particulars of vegan cuisine since 1999, this STREET cafe— one of the absolute
best vegan restaurants in Mayfair —- doesn’t skimp on luxury,craft and enjoyment for the sake of skirting animal produce. With an emphasis on nutrition and health, this food company proves to Londoners that the lifestyle is not about restriction; there are, in actuality, too many options for just one visit at Vantra.

No lesser than other high-end venues — its about an expansive, universal experience of nourishment: sharing and caring mealtimes. With courses suffused into Raw,fermented, or steamed sub-categories depending on the average intuitive eater feels their body fancies that day — Vantra favours a buffet style serving of gourmet vegan plates. a Utopian canteen, of simplistic splendour, this boutique Mayfair shelter offers chalkboard decoration, low lighting and petite dark wood tables that fan out from the centralised through line of the buffet bar where steel cauldrons of delicious options sit prettily below their chalky labels.

If inventiveness, appealing colour coordination (beetroot purple,carrot orange,saffron yellow- oh my!) and uncanny alliteration signifies success (a la their chickpea curry, sunflower stroganoff and mixed mushroom stew) then its no wonder this is one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair- and the country at large. With everything gluten free in addition to meat free, and a quiet, intimate seclusive space within the bustle of Wardour street, Vantra can give you the most mindful moments, and menu, around.

Tibits is a Swiss vegetarian restaurant group with 9 sites in Europe, of course they have a restaurant in London’s Mayfair which has become an increasingly popular place to eat. Tibits serves a tantalising vegan menu with a few vegetarian items too and its reputation holds it to one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. Something unusual about Tibits is that you pay by the weight of your plate which means you can try a bit of everything including delectable desserts and go back for more.

Head Chef Eimantas Butorovas has been the head chef at Tibits Heddon Street for 8 years. Interestingly the founders of Tibits were the first people to open the first vegetarian restaurant in Europe – they definitely know what they’re doing. The food itself is displayed on a two tiered ‘foot boat’ with a daily changing hot and cold options to keep it seasonal. Our favourites were Mac & greens, tofu au vin, spicy sweet potato salad and the precious vegan sticky toffee pudding. Buffet lunch is priced at £2.10 per 100g and dinner for £2.30 per 100g, very well priced for one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. Tibits also serves cocktails and you can book in for bottomless brunch available on the weekend – only an extra £18 for unlimited Prosecco, Bellini’s and Freedom brewery beer.

As well as food they also host events at both the Mayfair and Bankside locations including cooking workshops for kids and adults and happy hours as well as educational events in store and informational blogs can be found online. It is definitely worth checking out their website as they share the recipes of delicious food served so that you can recreate your favourite dishes from home.

Ethos is found on Eastcastle Street, just a stone’s throw away from Oxford Street. Ethos is a meat-free concept restaurant where you can dine for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. At Ethos its a buffet style menu and you pay by the weight of your plate which means you’ll never have to share your partner’s food. The restaurant opened in September 2014 and now makes it name as one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

The food itself is from all over the world which can sometimes be unusual on one plate but when there are so many delicious things in sight its hard to turn down a spoonful of everything. The brightly coloured salads are complemented by the contemporary marbled tables and floors with a pop of purple tying everything together. Gracing the restaurant is silver birch trees from floor to ceiling – quite a phenomenal yet unexpected appearance. Ethos won an award for their interior design and we can see why. The food is suitable for everyone; all food is seasonal and locally sourced and meat-free, with most being dairy free, gluten-free and a selection of sugar free too. Some of our favourites included a vegetarian dish – Aloo Scotch eggs, a combination of the well known classic with a curry twist, BBQ seitan ribs which is the best vegan meat going and we savoured all the salads on offer. Not all salads from the menu were available but there was still ample selection.

Besides what they offer in store they also give an option to take food to go, they have a takeaway service and also a premium picnic hamper for two for £35, and this exemplifies one reason why they are one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. To dine indoors it cost £2.50 per 100g at lunch and £2.70 at dinner time, roughly this equates to £10 well portioned lunch or up to £20 if you can’t resist. Ethos also offers a catering service and venue hire in which they can also create a specialised menu suitable for your occasion. According to the website they will be looking to open up another site in London – we can’t wait to see what this will bring.

Pollen Street Social is a Michelin star restaurant run by Jason Atherton – a renowned chef in London who has worked closely with Gordon Ramsey. It is comprised of a fine dining restaurant, social bar, dessert bar and private dining area and serves a contemporary European menu. Whilst Pollen Street Social isn’t strictly a vegan restaurant they do have a fantastic selection of vegan and vegetarian main courses on the A La Carte menu as well as a vegan and vegetarian tasting menu to taste as much of Atherton’s creations as possible.

Our favourites include Tomato Tartare with Verjus Granita and crunchy croutons, and something quite unusual was the braised broccoli with a lemon puree topped with almonds. The crunchy broccoli teamed with the sweetness of the lemon was a flavour to savour. Another recommendation is the roasted celeriac Risotto with mushroom & truffle – the combination of flavours created a really tasty nutty flavour, something I’d happily have again. The standard of food is what makes Pollen Street Social one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. The tasting menus can also be paired with matching wines for each course too (ranging from £91 for the classic pairing to £253 for the Iconic pairing) the wine menu is made up of well selected European and even English wines for you to try or if you prefer a seasonal cocktail there is an ample selection too.

What makes Pollen Street Social stand-out as one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair is its decor. It is natural with an added warmth to it, the wooden dessert bar seems the main feature with beautiful lighting ahead and with additional seating all along one side of the room with a classic vintage feel to it.

Mildreds Soho branch is set on Lexington Street and it’s a popular spot for quick lunches of salads and soups or a sit down occasion to enjoy with a bit more leisure. Mildred’s have been serving hearty vegan and vegetarian internationally inspired dishes for over 25 years in London and have now secured themselves a spot on our list as one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

The ethos of Mildreds is a casual and relaxed affair where they don’t take table bookings however they always seem to manage to get everyone sat with a reasonable wait regardless of the size. The service is fast so perfect for lunches or an evening bite to eat. They also have a selection of daily changing salads, soups and quiche available at the front for a take-away if you can’t make the wait. What makes Mildreds one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair is their version on meat and how they imitate those delicious meaty flavours you’d think are only possible from an actual animal – however their Tandoori ‘chicken’ with dahl, carrot salad and sweet chutney gives a selection of so many flavours, our version of veggie heaven. For desserts it was a tough occasion, I would recommend trying all of them and coming back until you’ve tasted everything on the menu as each dish is delicious.

The decor at Mildred’s is nothing exceptional, its simple and canteen-like but its cheap, cheerful and has exquisite food with great selection – Mildreds have other restaurants in Camden, Kings Cross and Dalston.

Whilst not strictly a vegan restaurant Malibu Kitchen serves fresh, clean-eating and healthy dishes so of course, most of these are delicious vegan or vegetarian options. Set in The Ned hotel, it is the perfect setting to enjoy a trendy meal in a deluxe restaurant. Malibu Kitchen makes up one of the 9 restaurants inside and is hard to compete with, as it shines as one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

With their infamous Taco Tuesday, they offer a set menu of 2 tacos, 1 side and a dessert served with a tequila, chilli cocktail – a great way to try a combination from the menu. For a light start we would recommend Squash & coconut soup and for something more substantial we also suggest the pulled jackfruit burger – the best imitation meat burger! Served with vegan coleslaw and sweet potato fries. Malibu Kitchen also has a great selection of fresh salads which are mostly vegan. I’d recommend going with a friend or partner and getting as much as possible to share to taste all the fresh flavours they have to offer at this Californian inspired establishment and one of best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

The decor at The Ned is bright with beautifully marbled tables. Malibu Kitchen has a long counter in the middle and a few private booths to dine in. The green marble ties in the health factor of what they have to offer here as well as the wooden booths with lots of natural foliage splashed around the place. This all embracing restaurant invites those looking for virtuous food without the extra guilt-tag.

Acclaimed chef Theo Randall opened this restaurant at the InterContinental in November 2006, this is after 25 years of specialist training with some of London’s best chefs. The last restaurant he worked for received its first Michelin star in 1997, then less than 9 years later Theo moved on to working towards his own restaurant where the quality of the food he creates has not gone unknown. Theo has a large following of dedicated foodies and from this rustic Italian menu we understand why it is one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

The menu changes daily depending on what is in season and available and whilst it isn’t strictly a vegan restaurant, it does cater for all in it’s dinner menus. The vegan menu has 3 antipasti options and our recommendation would be marinated peppers with Swiss chard and fresh borlotti beans on bruschetta or Artichoke with mushroom served with a contradicting chilli and mint sauce. For the main course there are plenty of options depending on your appetite. If you’re looking for a pasta dish then the tomato, basil and aubergine main would be ideal for a hearty Italian meal or our favourite grilled polenta with mixed mushrooms and sweet tomato.

At the InterContinental they have a great selection of masterclasses including a four course dinner with matching wine and an hour with Theo Randall himself, for £155 per person. This once in a lifetime experience illustrates why InterContintenal is one of our top picks for the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. If you prefer a tipple, they also have a 90 minute Negroni masterclass which come with a few of Theo’s special small bites too.

The Gate has been rocking London for almost three decades now, with 4 sites across London in Islington, Hammersmith, St John’s Wood and Marylebone. The Gate creates unique vegetarian and vegan food, we love their Marylebone site which was the newest addition in 2016.

Founders Adrian and Michael Daniel are brothers with a very mixed heritage of Iraqi-Indian Jewish culture. They believe that the Arabic hospitality that runs through their blood is the reason for their success as one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. The restaurant itself has an earthy feel to it, the decor is a mix of olive green soft benches with lots of wood and black accents to compliment the room whilst still keeping it light with painted bare brick walls. The food follows suit, it’s light but satisfying.

Our favourites from the menu include the Green Thai Curry with shiitake mushroom, pak choi and tofu for its main components and a beautifully creamy dish with a hint of spice. We also adored the side of cauliflower as it comes with tahini dressing and sprinkled with pomegranate for a sweet crunch. All drinks at The Gate are plant-based too and they showcase an ample selection of vegan wines to accompany any dish. The Gate are now offering Bottomless Prosecco Brunches, for £32pp for 90 minutes of pleasure – we’ll be heading there this weekend to enjoy this shining example of one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

Deliciously Ella opened its Deli’s doors in 2015 originally in Seymour Place but relocated to a bigger site on Weighhouse Street in 2016. The Deliciously Ella story started in 2011 when owner Ella Mills found her health deteriorating and turned towards a plant-based diet to aid recovery and help her symptoms. She was successful and is now opening Deli’s around London to help others in a similar position to her. Fast forward 4 years and she now has not only distinguished herself with one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair, but also has her products in supermarkets so you can try her food on the go.

Deliciously Ella started as a blog and has a huge social media following as well as very successful recipes books. Some of our favourites from the deli include: the red lentil and cauliflower dahl or sweet potato, chickpea and pumpkin curry – a recipe which is shared on her website with a large selection of others so that you can recreate the gorgeous good-for-you food. The MaE Deli has a fantastic breakfast menu too which is what makes it one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

The decor in the deli is kept light and simple with lots of wood, beautiful flowers gracing the tables and some beautiful pieces of modern art around the room. My favourite feature is the window benches to sit and watch the world go by and enjoy an Organic turmeric cold pressed cashew blend.

At Rasa, they strive to give the best home-cooked Indian food, and their success has been evident. Rasa has two restaurants in London, the first restaurant was opened in Stoke Newington followed by their spot on Dering Street. Originally Rasa W1 started out as a solely vegetarian restaurant but have more recently introduced seafood and meat dishes.

The best way to dine at Rasa is by means of a feast which includes snacks, starters, curry, side dishes, rice, breads and a traditional sweet. Veg feasts are £25pp, the Vegan feast is £28 or the Non Veg is £32. Our favourite vegan picks are the Aubergine and tomato curry with a thick sauce and the Moru Kachiyathu (Mango & green banana dish cooked in yoghurt with ginger and chillies) which came highly recommended.

The decor is notably pink which of course draws the eye, there are also traditional Keralan pieces and an elegant spiral staircase. Overall, the attentive service, raved about vegetarian cuisine and decor make it one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair.

A restaurant where you can do no wrong, for your health or the planet. Redemption Bar opened at the end of 2018, offering plant-based, gluten-free, low in sugar dishes topped off with an alcohol free bar which highlights it as one of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. The focus is on personal health and planet conservation by means of sustainable food consumption and business. Their Covent Garden branch sits happily in Seven Dials and has two sister stores in Notting Hill and Shoreditch. Judging by the reviews and general vibe of the place this is the type of bar that this area of London has been in need of.

We suggest trying everything on the menu but our top recommendations would be the Jackfruit tacos. If you are looking for a meaty texture then this will ‘meat’ all requirements. It’s served with salsas and creamy guac. We loved that they offer sharing platters – the perfect accompaniment for a Kombucha apple mockjito. They’ve also got an Italian antipasti style board, Vietnamese roll platter and Japanese maki rolls – all £12.95 each.

The bar itself is one precious feature that typifies why Redemption Bar is on our list of the best vegan restaurants in Mayfair. It has lots to offer minus the headache in the morning. With 4 beers and an apple cider available, kombucha on draft and sparkling wine which we were surprised as to how it really did resemble a lighter taste of the much-loved Prosecco. For dessert there are fermented nut cheese boards and a delectable range of creamy and fruity dairy free, gluten free delights.
