The family went up to Kingston upon Thames for a first time trip to "Riverside
Vegetaria" a vegetarian restaurant as the name suggests is on the river a
delightful setting at any time of the year, watch the people and boats go by. In
warmer weather it would be nice to eat on the pathside over looking the water,
unfortunately, when we sat down to eat a child's coat was wind blown into the
water so today was a day to enjoy the internal decorations of this informal
diner, comfortable atmosphere and pleasant "godly" staff.
The whole menu is either Vegan or Vegetarian and is very pleasing to the
eye,they have the skills of presentation. We shared the Chef's mixed platter
with an extra portion of a wonderful home made Garlic bread quite filling on its
own,and enough for four. Our main orders were House Lasagne with a side salad,2x
Organic red lentil & Avocado kedgeree and organic courgette mushroom & lentil
bake. The flavours were expressive and encouraging with a wise use of spices as
only an Asian chef knows how never so hot but adding diversity and colour, salad
with everything and portions are large enough to avoid desert. we had a round of
soft drinks and the whole meal came to £62.00 for four (with out deserts.) We
had a good time and will go back again sometime God willing.
