It’s always refreshing to see a new vegetarian restaurant open up in London, but seldom does it actually have anything exciting or creative and when they are creative, they often forget how to add any flavour to the dishes. The Gate was one of London’s first all vegetarian restaurants, trailblazing the scene sine 1989 and even a couple of cookbooks to boot! Naturally I was quite excited to find one had opened in Angel but that excitement soon disappeared once the food started arriving and service too was quite abysmal and very slow. I guess their formula of great vegetarian food needs a bit of tweaking at their new joint.
