The smell was fantastic when we walked in. The location is great place and we were disappointed it was too chilly to sit outside. We went for the sharer which allowed us to try 3 different dishes. They looked great but the taste was lacking in some. I found the Mexican chilli the only one with taste. The curry and the jambalaya was very bland. I found the costs to be quite high but everything is organic so understandable.
I treated my sister to lunch today as it was her birthday. She is vegan so I chose this restaurant liking what I saw on their facebook site. We sat outside overlooking the river with the occasional boat passing, swans and ducks doing what they do and people watched as a different array of folk passed by on the footpath.
The owner, Ritchie was charming although quiet. We made our choices and the food was extra fresh and delicious. I had a starter, main course and pudding (call me Miss Piggy) while my sister opted for a main course only followed by tea. Because she was carrying and opening a gift bag, the owner deduced it was her birthday and brought a small birthday cake with a lit candle. We thought this a very nice extra touch. An extensive menu which is all clearly labelled (vegan, wheat-free etc) and very reasonably priced.
I highly recommend this restaurant and know I will certainly be going back to sample more of their fare.
It's not easy being green... unless you're at Riverside Vegetaria. This beautiful veggie restaurant is on the same road as the theatre in Kingston, along with a bundle of other tasty looking independent places. It was my sister's 30th birthday and as a treat my mum and I took her out to lunch here.
This place is a five star veggie dream in summer. The dining area is right along the river front without any road between you and the water you can sit there watching the swans and boats bob up and down. However, we came in February which made this a 3.5 star place. I'll give them 4 as the service was so good. The menu is extensive. We could have sat here for a good 45 min just making our choices, and after seeing the specials board, another half hour!
This is a must for all veggies, it's a great place with a good vibe. The tables are all crammed into the small space, making it feel cosy and homely. Not to everyone's taste, but I thought it was lovely.
I popped in this place since a good smell was wafting from it onto the river walk. I met a local inside who dines here at least weekly. She introduced me to the owner who offered to make baby purée for my infant. I returned a few days later, and he delivered on his personalized offer and even held my child to free my hands and allow me to get a bite. What warm service! The food was flavorful and generously sized, and the waterfront view is pleasant. Here's a picture of my satisfied little diner.
