    I ventured to Hammersmith one mild spring day to lunch with a friend. The venue was The Gate, an upmarket and well renowned vegetarian restaurant in an unlikely location next door to a council estate. I had eaten at The Gate several years earlier and was pleasantly surprised by the food back then, so willing to return and see if the standards had been retained.

    I am not a big fan of the room, it is attractive enough, but the tables are too jammed in and the atmosphere is not good when it is quiet, as it was when I arrived. Thankfully, plenty of other lunchers arrived and perked things up a bit, though I was surprised when they seated people right next to us when there were plenty of other empty tables available.

    Favorite Dish: To eat I had the Tortillas - wheat tortillas filled with sweet potato, sweet corn, goats cheese, coriander & chilli, served with guacamole, sour cream & a black bean & red pepper salsa. The dish was attractively presented (apart from the burnt edges of the tortilla) and all of the flavours worked well. For dessert I had some Ice cream which is made in house - coffee, maple and coconut lime - nice and refreshing, but nothing special.

    Not being an experienced vegetarian restaurant visitor, I'm not sure how the menu compares to other veggie places, though there were plenty of interesting options which sounded good to this meat-lover.

    This is a very Romantic Vegetarian Restaurant with outdoor dining in a lovely courtyard.

    Some call it Londons Finest Vegetarian Restaurant

    Favorite Dish: The food is stunning and really well thought out. Meat eaters will be just as satisfied with this restaurant. The things thay can do with a simple mushroom................
