It's a bold claim, but this really is the best vegetarian restaurant in the city and definitely worth the wait. I've visited at least 10 times, and it's a place I often take my non-veggie friends who also love the food. For London, the food is very reasonably priced, it's as much as you'd pay in a chain such as... More

Although I typically don't queue for anything, particularly restaurants, our daughter and her boyfriend wanted to try Mildred's and, wow, it paid off. The waiting experience was efficient and really friendly. We were shown to a table in one of the upper rooms and were served by Ruben who was truly outstanding. Friendly, efficient and funny. The food was stunning.... More

This was the first time I had ever visited Mildreds - it was on my birthday and I had really been looking forward to it as I am a big fan of veggie food. Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed in Mildreds and cannot recommend it. Let me start by saying the food was fantastic - that is why I have... More

The food here is absolutely amazing. The burger is probably the best vegan burger I've eaten, and the BBQ tofu steak was unbelievably delicious. And thank God for that as we had waited 40 minutes for a table. This wouldn't put me off going again as the food was out of this world and still reasonably priced, we had a... More

Heard about this place, in various health food magazines. On a recent visit to London decided to give a try. Got there for 12 noon when they open as I do not like to Que. They do take bookings. We were one of the first in. frantic but professional services. 2 salads and 2 juices were ordered. The salads when... More

My party was looking for a restaurant with very specific requirements. I needed a place near The Wyndham Theatre, a place that would cater for my elder daughters coeliac disease and a place that also catered for my younger daughters veganism, after an internet search Mildreds seemed spot on. A vegetarian restaurant that has a wide range of gluten free.... More

When we come to London we unpack and head straight here! The food is amazing. My daughter is vegan and I'm a veggie. My favourites are the halloumi and mushroom burger and mushroom and ale pie. The vegan basil mayo is amazing and we bought Mildred's Cookbook to get the recipe. If you go late afternoon you can be seated... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
