Primrose Hill is one of our favourite places in London for inspiration, walking and getting ideas for life. Our doggy loves the park and we don't miss visiting at least once a month. It also happens to be home to our most favourite restaurant ever; in the whole wide world! Tucked away off the main street is the beautiful, comfortable, unassuming little piece of heaven that is Manna.
Here is where you will find the most delicious, generously sized portions and best value for money in the city. The restaurant itself is gorgeous; there's the conservatory where you can gaze out under fairy lights, the main room which is comfortable and non-intrusive; neighbouring tables are far enough away not to feel cramped but near enough for you to admire their chosen dishes. And then the back area feels like private dining; we love the wallpaper and decor!
The waiting staff are the best in town; unassuming, non-pushy, helpful, attentive and friendly. They don't loom over you and seem to always be there at just the right time to clear plates, fill your glass or offer the dessert menu.
The chefs here really know what they're doing. The food tastes like heaven! Starters are large enough to share and the mains are generous; don't miss the tarts; they are to die for. All food is organic and 100% vegan and we have yet to take a boyfriend or friend here who has not loved it as much as we have; carnivores and veggies alike. There's something for everyone from the richest, most delicious pastas, tofu, sausage and mash, sumptuous curries, raw options and our personal favourite; the chef's salad! We always order a side of raw cashew cheese with the salads; the onion rings go nicely to share aswell. Naughty and nice sit alongside healthy, detox options and each and every dish tastes wonderful. The whole feel is just special.
Desserts are not to be missed; the cheesecakes are always spot on; creamy, delicious, decadent and not overtly sweet. We could easily eat two portions each and always go for an extra scoop of vice cream; the most loveliest ice creams to ever exist!
If you want food to die for, excellent service and to feel satisfied and special, then Manna is the place to go. Check out their menu at www.mannav.com and if you go, be sure to fill out their comments book and share your experience with many. Too many veggie and vegan places have shut over the last few years and we need to support and share our love for the places that do exist.
This is quite simply always our favourite place to eat at; great for birthdays, treats and special occasions. They now serve a delicious lunch menu aswell at great value prices. We love, love, love it here! Words can not explain how good they are; go try for yourself!
