Vantra Vitao

A buffet vegan café near Tottenham Court Road

  • Lots of seating
  • Many dishes
  • Extensive drinks menu
  • Can be cramped
  • Sometimes a little pricey

A sister store to Vita Organic, Vantra Vitao is a new vegan buffet on Oxford Street. The decor is very woodsy - wooden tables, wooden walls, heavy chairs made out of logs.

You can choose how you want to buy your food: by weight (like Tibits) or by container (like everywhere else). There’s a mix of salads, grains, and hot dishes: tagines, curries, stroganoffs, and others. A large box will cost you around £6.50 to eat in; by weight, it’s about £1.80 per 100g. Sometimes the food is hit and miss; I liked the stroganoff, and my friend raved about the Thai yellow curry. But I had some noodles with black bean sauce that were terrible.

Vantra has a long drinks menu, including a bunch of non-alcoholic cocktails. They all sound good, but at around £5 for a soft drink I skipped it. Your more standard drinks are more reasonably priced, and they’ve got a bunch of different milks for their coffees.

There are some desserts available too, including a particularly tasty-looking cheesecake, but I haven’t tried any yet.

On the whole Vantra’s worth a visit, particularly if you’re looking to get something to eat quickly. It’s got more seating and a better atmosphere than Beatroot but I personally prefer Beatroot’s food.

About Nopudding London

Nopudding London was built entirely by Alex Pounds. It's designed as a more geography-centric guide of places to eat. Most veggie listings start with a table of text, but I'm normally trying to answer the question "Where can I get a good meal near _____?". Textual listings aren't very good at that.

I am available for hire, and you should follow me on Twitter.

Why only London?

I'm only adding places I've visited, as I'm more interested in making personal recommendations than being comprehensive. There are some other places elsewhere in the world, too, if you go looking for them...
