The food was good, but the serving size was so small, it was almost funny. I wasn't impressed. Fortunately, the server was very nice. She brought me a small bowl of what I'd been eating. Still, it was embarrassing to have to ask for more food in front of everyone.

This was our first visit. I was meeting my sons girlfriend for the first time, they were coming in from St Catherines and I was coming from Sarnia. Our waitress was friendly and helpful with choices. the food was great and the dessert even better. I would definitely come again and will tell my friends as well.

Had a great lunch. It was delicious and the service was great. The only problem was when I got home there was an email waiting for me letting me know that I MISSED my reservation and next time to let you know if I am not going to be able to make my reservation. I was there, and exactly on time. My suggestion is to double check before sending out such an email. Other than that we enjoyed our lunch and the chocolate cake we had for dessert.

On our way to see a Stratford play from Windsor, my husband and I stopped into London for a special dinner. We were so impressed that we then came back for Sunday brunch the next day -- it too was very delicious. In our humble foodie opinion, this is the best vegan restaurant in and around Southern Ontario. It was definitely worth the drive for us. We intend to go back again and again.

I love this restaurant. As vegan places go, it is a really great dining experience for non-vegan diners. I am vegan, but many of my vegetarian and omnivorous family members have tried the food at Plant Matter Kitchen and have had nothing but good reviews and happy comments. I recently took a date to the restaurant and we had a lovely time.

Absolutely fabulous. Wonderful philosophy; wonderful food; wonderful people. Places like this are why it's such a great time to be vegan. Far from having to settle for a confined diet, or one that tries to come up with a "vegan version" of well-known meat dishes, Plant Matter Kitchen, and others springing up everywhere, are daring and imaginative in their exploration of a commitment to plant-based nutrition.
My wife and I love to cook, and we're pretty adventurous ourselves, but if we lived in London, we'd have a meal here every week.

I'm never disappointed with PMK. Their menu offers great variety and the food is fantastic! Their servers are friendly and warm and the service is great. I live an hour away from the restaurant and it's well worth the drive. This is a 'must' for any foodie looking for a delicious meal.

I love that this restaurant is 100% vegan. There are a lot of delicious meal options! I ate here a few times and have never been disappointed. Portions are generous, great value for delicious plant based creations. (P.S. You have to try the PMK donuts! They are available on weekends but you have to be there early because they sell out fast).

This is the 2nd time I have eaten at PMK. I found the food bland and overpriced. Also, it was very noisy with a musician and keyboard crammed into the corner of this small place; music so loud with poor acoustics and conversation wasn't possible - bad scenario for a date. Wait time for food was too long (just salad-type meals ordered, nothing really 'cooked') and overpriced. Cake dessert was burnt and hard in one corner.
Servers kept coming up and interrupting to know if all was well; although this is an expected gesture and should happen once or twice during a meal, the number of times was ridiculous - every 5 or so minutes, which felt intrusive as we were trying to have some form of conversation over the loud music. Was glad to pay and get out of there. The best thing about my meal was the coffee served at the end.

Our first time visit to Plant Matter Kitchen, it had been on our list of places to try for awhile and it did not disappoint. Our server was excellent and very knowledgable about the menu. The only issue was with the Tasty Board was missing the crostini and not much cheese on the board. But, with that being the biggest issue we were a very happy group and will definitely be back.

We had the most amazing first time experience at PMK! It was my brother's birthday and we made reservations beforehand for breakfast/brunch. Our table was set up beautifully next to a window for us and our waitress was extremely friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. When I made my reservation I suggested they bring out a dessert for my brother to celebrate his birthday - and they did (free of cost)! All the food tasted delicious and it was wonderful. I love how the food is locally sourced and organic. The vibe/environment is relaxing and classy. We are both plant-based eaters and this was definitely one of our best vegan restaurant experiences . Thank you so much!
