NAMA- Artisan Raw Food restaurant review.

When I decided to take a trip down to London for the day, I knew exactly where I was heading to for lunch- NAMA in Notting Hill.

NAMA is a raw vegan restaurant which believes in ‘harnessing the power of natural food to create balanced, nourishing, life-enriching dishes’… and they certainly achieve that. 

We were seated downstairs by a lovely, smiley waitress- the whole place had such a wholesome, cosy atmosphere which is so important when you’re going out for a meal.  

I sipped on the Living Green juice whilst looking through the menu. For once, I was absolutely stuck for choice because I had the pick of the whole menu as opposed to there being limited vegan and gluten-free options as you get in the majority of restaurants. Every single thing on the menu was gluten free, vegan & raw- I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited!

All of the other diners were eyeing up everybody else’s dishes as everything they serve at NAMA is presented so beautifully and looks so, so delicious.

I ordered the seaweed salad with a side of Sauerkraut (10/10 would recommend!) and the people that I was dining with (who aren’t actually vegan… or vegetarian!) ordered the Pad Thai & Pasta Primavera… and even suggested eating vegan few times a week- it must have been good!

Despite being quite full after my Seaweed Salad, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try NAMA’s best-selling Blueberry Cheesecake made of cultured cashew cheese, nuts & coconut with a drizzle of vanilla cashew cream and berry coulis.

IT WAS BLOODY INCREDIBLE.

I’m literally still dreaming about this cheesecake- it’s a good job I don’t live near NAMA or it could become an addiction!

I cannot recommend this place enough- the staff are delightful, it has a cosy, friendly atmosphere and the a the food is just indescribably incredible (also vouched for by non-vegans!).

If you’re ever in the Notting Hill area of London you NEED to check this place out- you will not be disappointed!

Thanks NAMA for the most wonderful dining experience… now please can you set up in Manchester so I can get my Blueberry Cheesecake fix?!
