Offering a stunning selection of Peruvian and Italian infusions, Monmouth Kitchen is a fantastic date night restaurant in Seven Dials. With a steady flow of both vegan and meat dishes from its kitchen, the restaurant's food is perfectly complemented by its selection of stunning fine wines and signature cocktails, alongside its stylish decor; sun-soaked by day and romantic by night.
The festival favourite launched its very own plant-based curry house in the heart of Walthamstow. With its glass roof and vibrant pink and orange walls, SpiceBox is a fantastic date location any time. Meat eaters and veggies alike are sure to drool over the jackfruit jalfrezi, chicken korma and handmade samosas, all cooked to perfection and entirely animal-free.
A gem in London’s vegan food scene, The Gate has four locations around the capital, each offering a cool setting to tuck into innovative plant-based dishes. Paying homage to their Indo-Iraqi Jewish background, the two brothers behind this venture have created a unique menu that is sure to impress, as well as a super Sunday supper club that would be more than worthy of the occasion.
Nestled in the heart of Notting Hill, Farmacy boasts delicious, organic dishes that are so good you won’t even notice they’re animal-free. From their deliciously light pizzettes to start, to their classic black bean and mushroom burger, the restaurant's selection of homely, hearty offerings are complemented perfectly by its pretty botanical decor and cosy atmosphere.
This swish Chelsea restaurant places high-quality vegan food at its heart, with an all-day menu of classic comfort food that would blow the socks off any vegan and their omnivore counterparts. Make sure to try out the Wulf pie with pulled jackfruit, classic Wulf seitan burger or fresh sourdough pizza to see why Wulf & Lamb are a local favourite.
An award-winning Japanese restaurant serving both vegan and meat delicacies, ROKA has earned its place as a top date night spot for its minimal decor and sublime sushi. Enjoy skewers hot off the robata grill, fresh sashimi, sushi rolls and tantalising tempura each presented on small plates that can spread across the table and shared, or not.
This cosy hangout in Kensal Green has all the ingredients for a perfect date night restaurant. Its dimmed lighting, intimate seating and an eclectic choice of international dishes will have you and your boo swooning instantly. The homemade hummus is simply divine, as is the decadent sticky mushroom ribs, but the real winner at Comptoir V is the vegan shrimp, which we said were just as good as the real thing.
