As always the Plant Matter Kitchen exceeded expectations...new to us was the Tropical Smoothie and the chocolate cake. Have no hesitation in recommending this Vegan restaurant to my carnivore friends!

One of my favourite restaurants for lunch with the girls. The food is delicious. Vegan-phobic diners need to give it a try. There is something for everyone. LOVE PMK!

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.

Five of us came for a double birthday lunch -- and we were delighted with the food and service.
PMK provided dessert specially for the birthday gals. Wonderful quality of food. None of us are vegans or vegetarians but we loved the food. I had the 162 burger on a sesame bun with salad and the wedges which I shared. We will be back!

First time at Plant Matter to experience a vegan meal. Very impressed. Two of us had the taco salad bowl and it was excellent. We also had the soup of the day which was a loaded potato and was delicious. The third person tried the soup and one of the burgs. She was pleased but said it definitely tasted different.
Will definitely try it again and recommend it to friends.

I felt like the portions of food could have been bigger. I was very hungry after finishing the brunch special. Also, our food was ready for 10 minutes and sat at the kitchen the entire time. Alrhough it was a busy Sunday so it’s forgivable.

I’m not vegan but I was curious. I love Wortley Village, and the ambiance was great, trendy, socially conscious, and inventive. My Smoothie Bowl for Sunday brunch was delicious, light and fruity, and you get lots! I will be going back because the taco salad was delicious too! (Had that for take out another time)

As a gluten free vegan it's difficult to find food that is both delicious and sustainable. PMK fits the bill and it's reasonably priced as well. Well done!

Though I am not vegetarian, I found the spanakopita and Caesar salad a good option for a low carb dinner. Hopefully the restaurant will get a license to serve alcohol on their outdoor patio, for now it is dining in when consuming alcohol.
I would recommend this spot to my vegetarian friends

My last visit here was for my birthday. They had a frittata special one of my friends ordered that she said was really good and they were offering pancakes instead of the classic waffles. Everyone really enjoyed the food (even though I was the only vegan in the group) which made me happy because it's rare I can go out for food anywhere I can actually eat and everyone enjoys. Highly recommend going to any of the Plant Matter locations.

It was our very first time that we were at Plant Matter Kitchen. We were celebrating our 1st Anniversary and we have found our new favourite restaurant since we became plant based early this year! In fact we were there on Saturday and my husband wanted to drive back to London to eat there on Monday too!

Everything was exceptional...staff was amazing....very friendly and super knowledgeable! Kudos to our lovely server Leah...she has won our hearts too! I have been a server for over 30 years and just hung my apron up about 3 years ago but I can still recognize someone who loves their jobs and your staff sure does!

I have been bragging up your restaurant to friends and family and even posted photos of our anniversary dinner on facebook! Cannot wait to see you all again! xo :)
