    Another excellent meal at Plant Matter Bistro! Chef Thorogood and his team give every plate special attention: great flavours, great freshness, always letting the vegetables shine! And ... if Lauren is your server, you will be looked after very well indeed! Go and enjoy !!

    It would depend on what a friend was looking for as to whether I would recommend the bistro or not. If someone is looking for something a little finer and a bit different, then go to the bistro. I was at the bistro for my anniversary and felt that you received less food for a higher price in comparison to the kitchen. We shared the live rolls, which was awkward because for two people, there were three rolls. I had the bibimbap, and my husband had the bistro bowl. My husband was done long before he felt full, even though he thought the flavours were amazing. My portion seemed larger, and I enjoyed most of it, but started feeling that the saltiness was too much as I made my way to the bottom of the bowl. The chocolate cheesecake was hands down the best part, and I would definitely tell people to try it. The creaminess, richness, and texture would fool anyone into believing it’s cream cheese. My husband and I have been to the kitchen multiple times, and felt that we preferred it over the bistro. It’s nice to finally say that I’ve been to the Plant Matter Bistro, Kitchen, and Café, but for quantity, price, and atmosphere, I prefer the home-like kitchen.

    Went for dinner on a Saturday night; probably didn't even need a reservation, it was very quiet. We ordered the live rolls as an appetizer and they were AMAZING -- so flavourful! For mains we had the cauliflower pot-au-feu which was pretty good--could have used more cauliflower--and the enchiladas which were also incredible! I will definitely be back to try more items from the menu.

    Food was excellent and the choices were plentiful. The restaurant was noisy because of poor acoustics. There was only nine patrons at the time. However it is still the best plant based restaurant in London we have found.

    We arrived and were seated quickly. The waitress answered all our questions. We are still not sure what Jackfruit is. The food was good. My husbands bowl was cold . We asked the waitress and she said it should have hot elements and some cold. None of it was hot but nothing was offered in the way of a fix. My husband does not normally eat vegan and this was no help in encourage him. He says he would try again but I think we need to try Plant Matters as they have a larger menu selection.

    Had lunch with my friend who is from Toronto and is vegan. He was very impressed with the quality of the food. I am not vegetarian but there were many choices on the menu that interested me. I ended up with their risotto which was delicious. My friend had the cauliflower pot-au-feu and he also said his was very good. Only negative was that both dishes were a bit on the salty side.

    I give 5 because I’ve been here often and it’s always on point. However this time they used fake meat in the Ravioli, I was not a fan. I have had the Ravioli a few times in the past and it’s always been better. If I were Plant matter, I’d steer clear of fake meat unless making a Beyond Burger or something. Still great place, great Value.

    Feb. 19/19. How amazing to find such a restaurant catering to vegan clientele and using local vegetables when possible. The chef is to be commended, the only glitch was a cold creme brûlée. Linguine with avocado sauce was rich and flavourful. The maitake mushroom steak delicious with vegetables crisp to perfection, mushroom soup beyond the pale. Service was gracious and helpful. Looking forward to enjoying a meal there on our next visit to London. Frank & Liz.

    This was our first visit to PMB - an anniversary dinner. We found the portions a bit small for the price, and both our dishes were WAY too salty (and generally we like salty foods!). If you have a big appetite I don't think you'll be satisfied with one main dish, and most of them are about $20 each. However, the food was obviously crafted with care, our server was delightfully quirky and friendly and the atmosphere was nice (the bar height tables are a bit small and squished though). Although I know local and organic ingredients cost more, overall I found we paid far too much for the experience ($75 after tax and tip for an appetizer, 2 mains and a bottle of Booch - no alcohol or dessert). I might try it again and order a different meal to give it a second chance, but it was disappointing; it certainly didn't live up to my expectations.
