Our comments: It is not a totally vegetarian restaurant but they only serve one non-vegetarian main option. Many dishes on the inventive menu are vegan. The food is of excellent quality and very good value for this type of cuisine. You will definitely need to book a table in advance. Specify you are vegan on ordering. The menu changes frequently but at the time of research the following dishes were vegan or could be adapted to be so.
Starters: Paneer & spinach curry with Peshwari-style roti, Spanish beans on toast with ‘black pudding’.
Main Courses: Vegetable stir fry with Indonesian nut sauce, tumbet, white beans in garlic-cashew cream, spinach, avocado & tomato salad, Italian filo pie, sweetcorn mash, pepperonata, salsa verde.
Desserts: Sticky toffee pudding, toffee sauce & ice cream, crepe suzettish, mandarin & star anise sorbet.

Location:
Near the Splott end of Clifton Street.

Price:
Bean curd dishes £3.30,
Vegetable dishes£2.30-£3,
Vegetarian meat dishes £4-£4.50,
Vegetarian crispy aromatic duck £6.50-£12

Our comments: They offer a very wide range of vegan options including beef, chicken & duck meat substitutes, mushroom ball, bean curd and vegetable dishes. Avoid the satay sauce as it contains shrimp. The vegetarian ginger & spring onion dishes are suitable; they do not contain oyster sauce. They will prepare the vegetarian noodle dishes with rice noodles to make them suitable for vegans, on request. Regarding the mushroom balls, they are vegan but we are yet to find anyone who has found eating them an enjoyable experience. Home delivery is available until 11.30pm but ask them to replace the free prawn crackers with poppadoms.

Location:
Off Newport Road very close to the old Cardiff Royal Infirmary.

Price:
£4-£7.80 per dish

Our comments: There is a selection of vegan dishes such as soya nuggets with potatoes and a choice of pickled salads, perogi (dumplings with sauerkraut & mushrooms) and potato pancakes stuffed with mushrooms. They can provide more suitable dishes, if called a day before including vegan goulash. If you make it clear that you are vegan, the staff are very helpful and the front of house man knows exactly what this means. There is coffee or vegan Tyskie lager available to drink.

The top end of Clifton Street, in the Adamsdown area of Cardiff.
