veggie-friendly options - Waterloo or London Bridge

has anyone any ideas about mid-range bookable places that are particularly good for vegetarians and near to Waterloo or London Bridge stations?

we went to Tas last time and i'm having a memory blank on other options!

  1. This might sound a bit strange, but the Terrace restaurant at the National has some very good vegetarian, tapas-style choices. At least it did when I was there a year or so ago. Maybe their menu is online?

        Great! I was very surprised at the quality of the food we had. This time of year, Mother Nature willing, it should be a lovely spot to eat.

    2. • Waterloo
      Yalla Yalla has a pop up in Southbank, so might be worth a try

      • London Bridge
      Truly Indian, lots of good veg options, love the saag paneer.

        thats the best indicator of indian cuisine: if you can go to a restaurant and get a completely satisfying all veg meal, you can rest assured the chef in the kitchen has some talent.

          i knew there was a popup but couldn't remember who - thanks limster! i'll also check out Truly Indian.

            Didn't know about the Yalla Yalla pop up - that's great news, where on Southbank is it?

              Saw the signage above the Real Foods Market, up the stairs.

                Thanks! Will need to check it out, have not yet got around to the one in the West End

          2. we ended up at the terrace at the national as it was easier to go somewhere which took bookings. which we really didn't need as the place was almost empty so lacking in atmosphere. however the food was good - all tapas size/style dishes. one dugff one which noone really liked (potatoes with saffron and almonds) but the rest were fine. i particularly enjoyed a couple of the salads (chicory & apple with cramelised walnuts; baby leaves, orange and almonds), beetroot falafel and lamb kebabs with labneh,

            thanks zuriga.

              You're welcome... glad the food was OK for the most part. When I was there, it was buzzing, but maybe the theatres were more full that evening.
