The Coconut Tree

Experience typical Sri Lankan hospitality and spice at The Coconut Tree, where a scrumptious selection of plant-based dishes await on the Roots menu. Pick and mix tapas-style plates such as gova mullan, pan-fried cabbage with onions, garlic, turmeric, black pepper and chilli flakes; vegan kotthu, a finely chopped roti with fresh vegetables; and the fragrant, warming fat sister pumpkin curry. 

As well as the vegan fare, it's worth a visit for the signature Cocotails infused with Sri Lankan flavours. There are low or no alcohol options as well as those with more of a kick.

OAK 

The secret ingredient in OAK’s recipes is passion – their visually and deliciously stunning meals are all created out of a love of vegetables and plant-based food. Expect tempting choices and exciting flavours, colours and details, and sit back and relax in the knowledge that everything is taken care of on the vegan front. 

Yak Yeti Yak 

There’s no need to compromise on flavour if you’re going vegan – Yak Yeti Yak have got you covered if you’re after an authentic Eastern experience. As the first solely Nepalese restaurant to open in the UK, the owners led the way back in 2004 in bringing fresh ingredients to the city, whether locally sourced from Bath, or straight from the paddy field in Nepal.  

Plant-based vegan and vegetarian options are given the same weighting on the menu as meat, meaning there are lots of flavourful options to choose from.
