222 Veggie Vegan – West Kensington

222 Veggies Vegan Restaurant

Let’s kick this list off the right way by introducing one of the best vegan restaurants in London – 222 Veggie Vegan. This restaurant makes the list on many other websites and it’s not hard to see why.

222 Veggie Vegan is not only delicious and 100% vegan, but it is also surprisingly cheap. For just £11.50 you can enjoy their lunchtime buffet and it’s even cheaper if you decide to take your scrumptious dish out for a wander (only £9.50!). Talk about student-friendly.

All their food is low-fat and low-salt, so not only do you get a cheap, vegan dish but you also do your body some favours as well!

If you fancy paying this place a visit, go to 22 North End Road, West Kensington, W14 9NU. You won’t regret it.

Rasa – Stoke Newington

Rasa vegan curry restaurant

Looking for an awesome curry spot but don’t want to be bombarded with meat dishes? Rasa is a hidden treasure in London that you can’t afford to miss if you’re vegan. Hundreds of people have recommended this vegan restaurant for their tasty curries and fabulous Southern Indian Cuisine. They’ve even won awards for their food, which definitely gets a big thumbs up from me.

Next time you’re around Stoke Newington, pay the Rasa a visit! They’re address is 55 Stoke Newington Church St, N16 0AR.

Wulf and Lamb – Chelsea

Wulf and Lamb vegan restaurant

If you happen to be bobbing around Chelsea and are looking for a place to satisfy your vegan needs, the Wulf and Lamb is an absolute treat. Everyone who goes raves about how amazing it is. This place is so vegan that you can’t even buy cow’s milk here! They are dedicated to the vegan lifestyle and only make food that is from ethical origins and organic farms.

This vegan place can get very busy at times and there isn’t any option to book a table, so make sure if you do find a seat grab it immediately and don’t let go.

You can visit this place at 243 Pavilion Road, Chelsea, SW1X 0BP.

Café Van Gogh – Brixton

Cafe Van Gogh Vegan Restaurant

The Sunday Roast… for some brits this is the most important meal of the week. For students, however, and especially those who are vegan, it can be rather difficult. Save yourself the trouble and go to Café Van Gogh for one of the best vegan Sunday Roasts you’ll ever have. This place is located in Brixton and is sure to satisfy your Roasty needs.

As well as the vegan Sunday Roasts, Café Van Gogh also donates a lot of its profits to the local Brixton community to fund its various projects. So, not only will you be enjoying you’re the food at this vegan restaurant but you’ll also be supporting a Nobel cause!

You can find this vegan spot in London at 88 Brixton Road, SW9 6BE – just a 20-minute walk from urbanest Battersea.

Mildreds – Camden, Dalston, and King’s Cross

Mildreds vegan restaurant

Looking for the best vegan restaurant for a classic dish? Mildreds has multiple sites and is an excellent choice if you’re looking for an OG dish.

As well as classic dishes, they also have a fusion menu where you can order things like curries and halloumi-based dishes. They have six different sites so you have plenty of choice no matter the student accommodation in London you choose. But they do get incredibly busy, so make sure you’re there at the right time otherwise you won’t get a seat!

You can find this place in various locations, head over to their site to find the nearest one near you.

Pied a Terre – Fitzrovia

Pied a Terre Vegan Restaurant

The vegan restaurants on this list are incredible, but what if we told there was a Michelin-star vegan restaurant? My guess is you’d be there instantly! The Pied a Terre is one of the more exclusive spots for vegans and you’d be looking to spend a pretty penny at this place. For that reason, we placed it as a dating destination opposed to a casual meal. So, if you’ve got a vegan date and want to ‘wow’ your partner, this place might be your best choice.

This restaurant offers a ton of options for vegans and veggies alike, so you won’t be short of options. Although this eatery could be considered anti-student, we still think that if you save your pennies you should definitely try it out!

You can find the Pied a Terre at 34 Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, W1T 2NH

Mooshies – now at The Hard Rock Cafe

Mooshies vegan burgers

Let’s face it, every now and again you want to indulge in a bit of comfort food.

Mooshies burgers are to die for and and although they initially started off as a small market stall, they have recently partnered with the legendary Hard Rock Cafe!

Enjoy Mooshie’s signature Vegan Burgers, Sides And Desserts at this iconic venue on London’s Oxford Street. More info here

The Hard Rock Cafe is at Great Cumberland Pl, Marble Arch, London W1H 7DL

WAVE – Hackney

WAVE vegan freakshakes

Who ever said you have to give up milkshakes when you turned vegan? If you’re feeling like spoiling yourself with a freakshake this month, why not head down to a vegan café that knows exactly how to make them. WAVE (We Are Vegan Everything) not only serves delicious food but also sells vegan baked goods! The people who started this restaurant also started plant-based bakery Cupcakes and Shhht, so you know they have to be good!

You can find this place at 1 Dispensary Lane, Mare Street, Hackney, E8 1FT

What the Pitta! – Camden

With three branches in London, plus one in Brighton, What the Pitta can now be crowned as King of the vegan kebab. For the signature kebab ‘meat’, they marinade soya chunks in ‘secret spices’ to create succulent nuggets. You’ll find them in the headline act: a vegan doner where the ‘meat’ comes packed in flatbread, with salad, soya yoghurt, tzatziki and houmous. It works because it’s not just the ‘meat’ that’s seen love and care: the salad is fresh and crunchy, the sauces are creamy and the made-in-house bread is great – thin and floury, a light way of housing a kebab’s heft.. You can also indulge in some good old-fashioned gluttony by ordering a wicked Oreo pizza for pud.

What the Pitta, 89-91 Bayham StreetLondonNW1 0AG

Temple of Seitan – Hackney, Camden & Brixton

Temple of Seitan vegan restaurant

Now that you’re vegan, thinking of eating fried chicken again might seem like a thing of the past. Luckily for you, we’ve included a place on this list where you can enjoy the taste of fried chicken and not break your vegan rules. Temple of Seitan is perfect if you want to treat yourself to a tasty bit of grub and not break the bank. They also do simple dishes like chips and gravy, so if you find yourself walking home after a late-night, this London vegan restaurant won’t let you down.

If you feel like swinging by this place, the Camden branch is 43 Parkway, NW1 7PN
