Ah so delicious! I had the classic burger and seasonal veg and a pomegranate cheesecake and a glass of lovely wine! We were delighted and my friend is not even vegan!

Great that it’s vegan; but on the expensive side. £14 for a burger, even a nice one, is quite a lot!

Fresh food but extremely small portion and for this size super expensive. I left really hungry and will not return.

Hello Ernesin, We have several dishes and all the mains are quite big and satisfying. If you had the opportunity of eating one of our small bites, its normal that you felt hungry, because they are just starters. We feel sorry if we didn't give you the right information so please come back and let us make it right! Hope to see you soon, Best regards, Wild Team

Awesome food, super tasty. They also introduced some interesting flavours which went very well together. The restaurant is in a lovely setting and the staff are very accommodating and friendly. Great meal. Would 100% recommend and go again.

Also had an interesting vegan cider made from eating apples which was divine

Delicious plant based food. I've never had anything that had so much flavour for such a reasonable price in central London. Highly recommend to veggies, vegans and meat lovers alike. Service was good but a few things weren't available substitutes were great though!

Place is lovely, maybe a bit small, but it didn't turned out into a bad experience at all. Service was very good (me and my friends are foreigners, so sometimes we weren't familiar with some of the food names they were serving), but they took time to explain all, asked for alimentary allergies, and even offered to take pictures when they saw we were trying to take a selfie. Food was outstanding. Served really quick and felt really fresh. Would love to come back again.

We were told to make our last orders at 8:15. We asked for the bill but the systems went down, which I understand is complicated, but we didn’t get it until 9:00 so missed our trains. It was handwritten so we couldn’t understand why they didn’t give it to us before. They didn’t check on us at all during this time or offer us anything- just prepared the staff dinner. Finally left at 9:10 and were locked in. We had to go back and ask them to let us out. Very poor service. Food was not as good as when I have been before

They did not have 2 out of 3 mains on the menu. And the burrito was not very flavourful, and expensive for what ingredients were in it. The cauliflower bites were delicious, but such a small portion for the amount it cost. Ambience was lively as was the service, but it was expensive and food was disappointing.

Food was bland and main courses came out several minutes apart. When I booked I said it was a birthday (my son) and when I rang to confirm the booking they said ‘yes 3 people and a birthday’ ... so I expected something .. a small cake with a candle perhaps but got nothing. Overall not great

I thought this restaurant was ok. They didn’t have a few of the items on the menu and the kitchen closed at 8 which I can’t understand. The food was not out of this world and I think I was expecting more but it was fun enough.

Menu items were quite limited, with one of five mains not available, and service was extremely slow even when there were almost no other customers in the restaurant. Staff were spending time socialising with each other rather than serving tables - had to ask multiple times for water, bill, etc. Won’t be back, unfortunately.

I’ve been before and loved it but on my last visit they had closed due to hot weather but they hadn’t emailed me to tell me my booking wouldn’t be honoured. I was going to the theatre after so was rushed to find a place to eat in time. Extremely poor and thoughtless towards customers.

The atmosphere is nice and the food was good. I found the service slow, the staff seemed quite inattentive and not very 'switched on'. I was also disappointed as I'd hoped to get a smoothie, but there were none available. - with no explanation as to why. That was a shame! Overall I think the prices are reasonable for what you get and the commitment to quality and care in the food is very high. I am glad we went there and would recommend it - just maybe the staff could be a little more 'eagle-eyed!'
