Tibits Restaurant Review

Last week me and my sister Jes went up to London for a day of fun. We were lucky enough to be invited to tibits restaurant to review the food and the new refurb. Last month I did a review of the tibits recipe book which you can read here. I absolutely loved the recipe book so couldn't wait to try out the food in the restaurant!

As part of tibits 5 year anniversary celebrations they had a refurb in their vegetarian flagship London eatery which is found in the Heddon Street Food Quarter just off Regents street.

Designers Guild worked with tibits to design the interior, which is so beautiful. I loved all the decor its very stylish with a retro feel, me and Jes both wanted the cushions! 

 We had a window seat reserved for us which was perfect to sit and eat whilst people watching plus one side of the restaurant has a huge open window which meant we got a cool breeze on the warmest day of the year so far, perfect : )

Once we got settled it was time to get our nosh on! Tibits is a buffet style eatery, you get your plate and fill it with an array of yummy dishes. All the dishes are labeled with an easy code to let you know if they contain gluten, wheat, dairy etc which made it really easy for me to know what was safe to eat so I could avoid wheat. There was lots of hot and cold foods to choose from, all so colourful and inviting, we were spoiled for choice! Once you have chosen you take your plate up to the counter and get it weighed which determines how much your meal will cost.

I had salad, roasted aubergines, carrots and parsnips, rice with peas, tofu and cucumber stack, falafel, chickpeas in a tahini dressing and some toasted seeds. WOW SO SO GOOD! Everything tasted fresh and flavoursome, my favourites were the roasted veggies but all of it was a joy to eat. It was one of those meals that makes you feel really good after eating it, healthy and delicious a big thumbs up!

After our lunch had settled we were treated to a tray of fresh juices to sample again these rocked! Fresh and tasty my favourite was the rhubarb juice of the day but each one I could have happily drank again and again : )

Obviously we had to have pudding! The cakes were a no go for me due to them containing wheat but my sister informed me they were amazing, I had some mango and pineapple chunks topped with a mango mousse. Oh yes this was another treat for the tastebuds the mango mousse was so creamy but not overly sweet exactly what I wanted. I'm definitely going to try and recreate this.

To round up my tibits experience I would have to say it was an absolute delight. The staff were all friendly and welcoming, everyone that works there has a big smile on their face, it came across as a great place to work. The food is awesome, I am looking forward to going back and eating there again. Me and Jes both decided we have to take our boys, they would love it! I only wish it was a little closer to home, at least I have another fab place to eat in London now when I travel up to the big smoke which is handy. 

I would like to say a big thank you to tibits and their staff for having us it fabulous : )


  1. Wow that looks great- it sounds a lot like Aloka in Brighton (which I think has closed?)- food like that is perfect as it is delicious but also makes you feel so healthy :) And I love the clear labels- as a vegetarian I get a bit paranoid about buffets in general so often steer clear of them.

  2. I love Tibits, I went there last time I visited London, and I'm sure I'll pay them a visit ext time I'm there, if only to track down that mango mousse: amazing!
