Within walking distance of Notting Hill, Portobello Market & Marble Arch, RAW at La Suite West specialises in healthy, innovative raw, vegan and vegetarian food. Boasting a chic, contemporary setting, the restaurant also offers gluten-free and dairy- free options and serves a delicious selection of non-alcoholic mocktails, smoothies and health-inspired teas and juices.

From 12 noon daily, RAW Restaurant serves the quintessential contemporary vegan alternative to the great British afternoon tea. The menu includes a combination of designer finger sandwiches, home-made scones served with coconut cream and fresh strawberries, followed by a selection of home-made pastries.

Created by head chef Nik Heartland, the RAW menu aims to surprise the senses and includes beetroot and almond feta cheese salad, aubergine rollatini, and for dessert the Raw tiramisu. For the ultimate vegan experience try the 5-course tasting menu. Set in the minimalist La Suite West boutique hotel in a busy area of London, Raw is a sleek, elegant restaurant with dark wooden furniture & subdued golden lighting. The peaceful restaurant opens up onto the hotel’s beautiful garden terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining.

One of the top vegan and vegetarian restaurants in London. Raw at La Suite West is a 2-minute walk from Bayswater Tube Station, a 3-minute walk from Queensway Tube station and just one stop on the tube from Paddington Station. Hyde Park is just a 5-minute walk away.

    Lovely experience with my Mum. Very calm and peaceful atmosphere in a beautiful typically London setting. Calming music played softly in the background. Staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious especially the scones with whipped coconut cream and fresh strawberries. I'd go as far as to say they're the best scones I've tasted! I'll definitely be back with vegan and future vegan friends. A great place to introduce people to this healthy and cruelty free way of eating. Thank you RAW!!

    First 2 meals were amazing but weren't so keen on the dessert course. Staff were brilliant. Could do with back ground music, and the resturant is very dark, made us all feel sleepy. Nothing to dry your hands on in the toilet

    never before had afternoon tea served as three courses, didn't particularly like it served as such either.
    scones nice but not served warm as the menu described.
    for some reason one of our sandwiches was made without cashew nut butter with no reason given (despite it being described as such on the menu)
    personally I didn't care the the raw deconstructed cake in a shot glass, but my husband liked it. the raw carrot cake ball was a little too big in comparison also but i liked the flavours. the apple puff tower was nice but would of preferred it warm (personally). overall there was too much sweetness for me - i would've preferred more sandwiches, but that is a personal thing.
    vegan restaurant but waitress repeatedly called cows milk "normal milk" which I found a little upsetting. Was I not normal for choosing a vegan afternoon tea then?

    Having Afternoon tea at Raw was a wonderful experience. The food was vegan and tasted delicious, the service was great and the tea selection had several interesting options (like genmaicha, darjeeling 2nd flush, jasmine flowers). We were told we could try as many different kinds of tea as we wanted for no extra charge. The outdoor garden was lovely and felt secluded even though there was a street next to it, since the whole garden was boxen in by trees and bushes. We couldn't finish all the food in one sitting, so the servers gave us a to-go box so we could enjoy the left overs at home.

    Amazingly brilliant food. Made to feel welcome as soon as I arrived. I was amazed to find a place where I could eat everything on the menu and didn't have to worry at all :) staff were friendly and re-assuring! It was my friends birthday and they brought out the desserts on a plate spelling happy birthday for her! They went above and beyond to make it super special! The food was beautiful.
