There were a couple of workmen stripping out all of the fittings at the Neal Street branch today. I didn't stop to ask, but since I've never seen anybody eating there, I was thinking it could be curtains:confused:

Oh dear - I hope not, I thought they might pull their socks up a bit as I quite liked the "concept"

I do quite like the Indian chutney burger. Although, at nearly six quid, I know I can eat cheaper and better elsewhere. In fact, if you're in the area, you should try the Bibimbab Café on Museum Street WC1 for some vegan Korean nosh. It's addictive.

Thanks for the recommendation, teaboy - must give that a try. Do you know how late it stays open?

We keep ending up in Tibits for dinner, which is absolutely OK by me but it's good to know of other places.

It's open until 8pm each day. Here's a link http://www.bibimbabcafe.com/ It's the vegan bibimbab with kimchi that I keep going back for.
I went past Otarian again today. It seems as if they were doing a minor refit yesterday; removing a few banquettes and wall lights, giving it a lick of paint and putting in some new tables and chairs. And true to form, there was nobody eating there...

Thank you very much teaboy - I did try a search but found the wrong one evidently. 8pm is a bit early for us normally, but we must try it one weekend.

Maybe Otarian does more take-aways than eat-ins, do you think?

I did try a search but found the wrong one evidently.There is another one on Greek St, called Bibimbap with a 'p'. I've tried it as well, equally good, but slightly more expensive as I recall. Although, due to its location in Soho, more likely to stay open late.

Thanks again. The Greek St one seems to be open until 11 apart from Sundays when it's closed all day, so that might be good for us.

Thinking about it, I might actually have had Bibimbap, or something corresponding with the description, in a Korean restaurant off Piccadilly, but it wasn't one that specialised in them. Was pleasantly surprised that they had something vegan though.

I really need to try more places in london as I've mainly been to Redveg (now gone :(), a place in Covent Garden which sold vegan gellato, and a vegan japanese place. I was going to try Otarian next.. there's too many places to choose from :)
