manna continues to work its magic

Manna continues to work its magic with cool decor & equally cool, eclectic food... A bastion of London’s vegetarian restaurant scene for more than four decades & a pioneer of the genre, Manna continues to work its magic with cool decor & equally cool, eclectic food. The intimate but spacious dining rooms are soothing, with exquisite wallpaper silhouettes of trees, branches & avian life. Subtle lighting, natural wood & summery tables on wrought-iron bases complete the deliberately natural look. The menu sweeps its way around the globe, taking in North African couscous & potato cake, cajun gumbo (a Louisiana stew of yams, sweet potatoes & plantain) & a Thai platter of tom khe broth, bok choy, spring rolls & ‘mock’ duck on green peppers. All are heartily recommended. Affluent Primrose Hill types, feeling good about their healthy lifestyles, are Manna’s most devoted followers.  squaremeal.co.uk
