From Our Editors

Influenced by large family meals during their childhood, brothers Adrian and Michael Daniel originally opened The Gate in Hammersmith in 1989 before eventually opening up a sister venue in Islington. Eager to showcase the diversity of vegetarian cooking, the menus feature a range of vegan and gluten-free options, while the wine list includes the likes of vegetarian, vegan and bio-dynamic varieties. The restaurants’ cooking has also gone on to form the basis for two cookbooks to try and encourage people to experiment with vegetarian cooking at home.

I had dinner in the other location in Hammersmith as the one in Islington was closed for refurbishment the night I wanted to book for so I haven't been to the one in Islington but I will definitively go and pay a visit there too!!! Amazing food and great presentation I loved everything about it the service was excellent as well!!! one of the best experience for me!! This restaurant is a real gem!!

Not enough staff at obviously busy times which is annoying. Once there was so few staff there was no food being served.

Myself and my partner had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. Thank you for accommodating us slightly earlier than the allowed times for the voucher. My only comment would be that the tables for couples along the wall at the front of the building are too close together. Taking out one of these tables to give people more space and privacy would greatly improve the whole dining experience.

Make portions bigger - my starter - cauliflower was small although divine and my dinner - chipotle was delicious but not filling enough.

The explanation of the dishes wasn't that clear and when we asked the waiters the discription didnt really match. Still a great experience though.

Badly managed on the night at least 5 groups of diners who had 9 pm reservations waited up to 30 minutes to be seated because the manager and waiting staff appeared to lack the confidence tk tell diners that their table was reserved from 9 and so they needed to vacate. Possibly these diners had also waited at 7 and so it was cumulative, but this we were very much not impressed with. The food made up for it, but if this happened on a second visit i woukd strongly change my recommendation to a dont visit the gate
