What to expect at Rishim's place
So let me start with the big positive..the food. Delicious and very creative. The chef introduced unusual flavours into vegetables and prepared stunning dishes. However, I was disappointed with the setting. It was not within the ‘usual concept’ of a supper club where you mingle with other diners and socialise. Instead we were in the dining area of an extremely busy pub. Most of the people in the dining area were regular customers and were ordering from the menu. A few of us were designated as supper club ‘diners’ and were towards the back of the room. All in all a very noisy pub atmosphere and really not a supper club. There were a lot of people passing through the dining area to either go to the basement bar or cloakroom/ lavatories.
Would I eat in the noisy pub again… NO and certainly not under the guise of
a supper club.
As great on subsequent visits as the first time. I'm not a strict vegetarian but Rishim's menus make it easy to be one. The chargrilled cauliflower with smoked maple, kimchi and raisins. Wow. The purple sweet potatoes, with sticky soy glaze, and sesame seed cracker was a work of edible art. Tye chipotle grilled mushroom, bbq leeks with peanut glaze made my taste buds sing. Yep, I'll be back for more 🥰
Great flavours and interesting combination of ingredients. Restaurant was quite noisy and hard to hear conversations!
We both really enjoyed this vegan fine dining experience. The food was exquisite. Rishim and the team provides a very friendly and attentive service and the food is sublime. So many beautiful courses but the mushroom was delicious. We hope to go again xx
