PMK is a perfect place to meet for a tasty plant-based meal, with a casual atmosphere, extensive menu, and fairly good value considering the quality of the food served. Excellent service too. I've never had a non-vegan express disappointment in this plant-based eatery, in fact they're usually unexpectedly surprised at the experience!

We had the perfect table for celebrating our event and getting to know the chefs, Don and Alex, the makers of our meals! Watched them work and quite passionate about what they do!
Kudos to all at Plant Matters!

Omnivore eats like a vegan! First visit to this Wortley Village mainstay. We had friends in from California and needed a vegan restaurant and Plant Matter Kitchen was a big hit for our vegan visitors. Spanakopita and poutine starters and shepherds pie main course and BeyondMeat burgers were excellent. It’s a bit loud but food and service were excellent.

We loved the shepherds pie, liked the lasagna (noodles were a wee bit overcooked), mac n cheese was too garlicky for the person who ordered it (but the two others who were there LOVED it)!!!
The chocolate avocado cake crowned the meal.
Loved the clean water (simple things but big!)
Thanks for giving us a restaurant where we can eat well.

Our meal was good but I was very disappointed there is no change table for babies in the washrooms which leaves you with the choice being to change your baby on the bathroom floor or on top of a cabinet that is quite high and unsafe.

The creativity in their vegan meals is fantastic. Definitely the best vegan restaurant I have ever eaten at. Loved the fact that the waitresses were so well versed in celiac, as my mom has celiac and is affected by cross contamination. Will definitely be coming back!

The tempura tacos with all the trimmings, including pickled jalapeños and onions, and guacamole, were first rate, the tempura spiced and 'ground' like beef.

This is a very good restaurant, especially for those with dietary restructions. I have been there a few times and although the food is usually excellent, this last visit, one of the dishes was not up to the usual standard. Having said that, the other 5 people in the group all had wonderful meals.

PMK is always a great place. Great plant based food and friendly service makes you feel welcome. The Thursday dollar an ounce for wine helps too. Lol. Even if you are not vegan you should check them out as the food is tasty and interesting.

These comments are based on one experience which is not quite fair to the restaurant. The service at the table was outstanding. The service at the counter was glacially slow. The spanikopita lacked flavor. It needed more feta. The Shepherds Pie also was not very flavorful and was mostly mashed potatoes. The PMK salad was good but over dressed.

Service was outstanding , however....I made a reservation on Open Table, got to the restaurant and my table, at the window was given away. HUH? No apology! Also, restaurant ran out of Spanakopita, it was only 7pm?

Food was good and service was stellar!

I booked my reservation for 3 o’clock and intended to book for the VegFest Special. I called on my way to London around 11 am to see if they had a cancellation for a later seating and left a detailed message to return my call to confirm either way. No one called me and when we arrived we were informed they were closing at 3 o’clock so they couldn’t serve us. I had my confirmation on my phone and still don’t know where the mixup was. Based on their reaction neither did they. It could be an Open Table issue as well, I can’t be the judge.

Regardless, I drove from Cambridge to London to have dinner with my daughter and some friends, only to be disappointed once we got there. The staff seemed quite surprised that I had a reservation but I showed them my confirmation with OpenTable.

The man who seemed to be in charge offered no explanation or apology for not returning my call. Apparently he hadn’t checked the messages. He fiddle with his iPad trying to figure it out and offered a seating at 6 but we declined because we were so hungry after skipping lunch due to the seating time, we had to eat and wouldn’t be hungry again 2 hrs later.

He did give us 1 left over, soggy blondie to split amongst us. I was extremely surprised he didn’t offer a gift certificate or even tickets to VegFest which was the cause we were there to support. Compensation for a major inconvenience of travelling from out of town would have been welcomed and appreciated and my review would be more favourable. It would have also guaranteed the opportunity to make things right and offer great service. Maybe they don’t need the business. Sadly we were very disappointed.

Unfortunately I only have the blondie to rate the food on but the service was the worst I’ve had in a long time and we eat out often, always looking for new vegan/vegetarian experiences.

I rarely write negative reviews I prefer to write lots of good ones however this service was inexcusable given the circumstances.

They didn't have my reservation on file, despite my confirmation email from open table. They were able to squeeze us in. Very loud, small restaurant. My meal was ok, but I expected more for the price. Chocolate cake was delicious but took a long time to come.
