Phenomenal meal! The service was impeccable, the food was incredible. Beautiful presentation and amazing flavours. The folks running this place are obviously passionate about what they do. You really wouldn’t know it’s vegan. A wonderful experience. I cannot recommend highly enough!

We took our brother and sister in law for their 30th wedding anniversary. We are all meat eaters and so I had my reservations! I did not need to worry - this food was so good! I cannot wait to go back and try the...summer menu when it comes out. I cannot recommend this place enough - if you have any reservations about missing meat, then please put them to one side and book!More

We cannot praise this place enough! It is some of the best food we’ve ever had, we couldn’t tell it was vegan. The service was incredible, the waiter was on his own and it never felt like we were sat waiting for service. He knew...the menu back to front; perfectly pairing wines with food. Me and my partner came here as meat eaters… the food was unbelievably flavourful and perfectly spiced (fairly spicy but didn’t ruin the flavour) 😀 Going to bring new family members to enjoy the plant based food that tastes incredible. Love this place.More

This place was amazing the food is out of this world, being a meat eater, I wasn’t sure but the owner spent time with us and advised us on what we should try, then when the food was brought to the table explained what everything...was, we were blown away with presentation also. This place is worthy of a Michelin star. Definitely worth a visitMore

Wow! This place was incredible one of the best meals I have ever had! I have seen seen anything like this before the food was like art everything was done so well and professional. The flavours they had created were something out of a Michelin...start kitchen they were incredible. The texture of the food as well was so unique and impressive if I am ever anywhere near this area I wouldn’t think twice about coming back! Anybody that is thinking of trying this place i would definitely do it as soon as because I can see the place being overpopulated soon because of the word of mouth and or someone big scouting it out. The staff here was also super friendly and very helpful with explaining the slightly complicated menu due to us not knowing what certain things were. 😃More

Fantastic food, special menu and an amazing host. All four of us are full omnivores but saw how highly rated this was and wanted to give it a go. I can honestly say I've not had anything like this food before. Great spice levels, superb...balance to the dishes and at no point do you miss the meat. The host and owner was so friendly and knowledgeable about the food and process and the menu is a great read. All in all an experience that we all really enjoyed and would without doubt would go back.More

I don't think I have ever heard my husband use the word 'exquisite' before, but it is how he described the food we had at Késarum. I fully agree. Every part of the meal was prepared with incredible care, and both texture and taste were...divine. We highly recommend the the 'crab cake' khekada and the apple dhokla. The staff and atmosphere were lovely. We will definitely return.More
