I've been wanting to visit Mildred's for a while but always been put off by the no bookings policy. As we were having an early dinner we gave it a go! It was busy but luckily we didn't have to wait for a table, although shortly after a queue built up.
We got the broccoli with soy and chilli and salt and pepper tofu to start. The broccoli was nicely cooked but a bit too oily, and didn't taste of chilli at all which was a shame, but still tasty. The salt and pepper tofu was good, the kimchi dip was lovely.
For mains I had the Sri Lankan sweet potato curry which was delicious! Really creamy and flavourful and a good portion size. My fiance had the mushroom and ale pie. This was okay but it's not actually a pie, it's a bit of puff pasty with mushroom sauce on top, followed by another bit of puff pastry sitting on top like a hat. The mushroom filling wasn't nearly as tasty as we were expecting so this was a bit disappointing.
The downside to this place is that it is so busy and a very overfull restaurant (tables packed close together and feels slightly like a canteen) that it gets very noisy and the service is rather brisk, so it's not the most relaxed meal. Probably best for a quick bite to eat but not much more. Still worth a visit but I think there are better vegan/vegetarian restaurants around.
