Quick London Tip: The Gate

Located both in Islington and Hammersmith, the Gate is a very nice vegetarian restaurant in London. In a busy but relaxed atmosphere, the restaurant serves modern and innovative vegetarian cuisine with friendly service and very correct prices.  Dishes include carciofini (fried baby artichoke filled with mushrooms on a garlic sauce), roasted pepper cannelloni (filled with chard, spinach and ricotta), quince and stilton salad, aubergine schnitzel or thai red curry. The portions are generous and the food is simply feel good food. I have visited The Gate with three meat lovers and everyone thoroughly enjoyed this meat-free break. For the true hardcore vegetarians, many dishes are also available in a vegan or gluten-free version.

Some very appealing dessert are also available.

Should you visit the restaurant on the weekend, reservation is key but even then be prepared for some wait.
