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.

    Great vegan afternoon tea with friendly service and quiet atmosphere. Excellent value for the price considering London. Of course, some things could be better - scones and cream for example, but the food was top notch nevertheless and the teas were also very good.

    Unfortunately the experience was not what I had expected. The food was enjoyable and we really enjoyed the scones and cream but the service was very slow. I arrived early and explained I wanted to wait for the other two guests as my booking was for 2pm. Around 1:50 myself and one guest were approached by staff who told us we were expected to leave by 2:30-3pm so did we know when the other guest would arrive. I explained the booking was for 2pm but was told they had given me another slot and gave our slot to someone else. If this was the case why was it not explained to me when I arrived? If I had been told this would be the situation then I would have waited in reception rather then allow myself to be taken to the table. 30 minutes to eat an afternoon tea is not acceptable. In the end we weren't rushed out at all and we were not told we had more time but rather slightly ignored while our plates were empty and we were ready for the next course. For such a small restaurant it seems strange that a table should be neglected in this way.

    At one point in the beginning of the meal the wrong drink was brought out, we explained that we did not order it and were responded to with raised eyebrows and 'i'll check'. Only once this had been checked in the kitchen did the staff member return to remove the drink from our table, did he think we were lying? Unfortunately as I thought we had to leave asap I was slightly anxious for the rest of the meal. The waiter and waitress were not unfriendly but the service was not efficient and communication was not good. For the price that is charged for this afternoon tea I would expect a better quality of service.

    Thank you,
    Miss Khaliq

    The food was delicious but the presentation wasn't as impressive as it had been in the past. The pistachio cheesecake was incredible.

    Very nice but could have done with more savoury and more filling in the sandwiches.

    Lovely to have an afternoon tea that was fully vegan and good value for money!

    The only thing me and my guest didn't enjoy was the last platter of cakes. If you improve on those, the meal would be marvellous!

    Absolutely amazing vegan afternoon tea which has probably ruined all other afternoon experiences for me ever again! The sandwiches were delicious and the coconut cream... put it this way, I don't want to eat any other cream again. I'm a vegetarian but the friend I went with was a vegan - I wasn't convinced it would match a traditional cream tea but boy was I wrong. My friend said she wished she could eat there every day. Great food and great experience. Worth every penny.

    Would recommend their afternoon tea. Great selection of very tasty sandwiches. Followed by scones with a very generous portion of strawberries with yummy coconut cream.
