An exciting plant-based food concept from LA, Essence Cuisine is headed by celebrity chef Matthew Kenney. Dishes without meat, gluten, dairy and refined sugar are beautifully presented in a stunning minimalist setting of angular tables and sleek grey tones.

Supremely fresh, ethical dishes feature throughout the Essence Cuisine menu, abiding by 'free-from' principles. All-day breakfast and brunch options include raw coconut banana pancakes and a selection of superfood smoothie bowls, moving on to signature mains later on the in the day like raw kimchi ravioli and heirloom tomato lasagne.

Desserts at Essence Cuisine in Shoreditch feature sumptuous ingredients without a lot of the guilt of regular sweets. Tuck into vegan gluten-free chocolate brownie with Himalayan salt and raw cacao ganache, or finish with a revitalising organic juice.

A super trendy restaurant in London that aims to make raw food more exciting, Essence Cuisine is a 6-minute walk from Old Street Tube Station.

    The food is absolutely delicious. Super satisfying and the flavours and layout have really been curated. The presentation is gorgeous.
    It is a bit on the pricy side but you really get the full experience in every bite. The waiters are lovely. They have surround sound in the toilets - makes you feel like you are peeing in nature :)
    Well done, great concept and excellent location

    Food was delicious, felt full without that heavy feeling afterwards. Only minor negative is seating is a little uncomfortable.

    The food here was delicious - we took them up on their taco Tuesday offer and it was very good value. We are not vegans but were not unsatisfied in any way and everything was just delicious!

    The restaurant itself could be a bit cozier and with the take out fridges lining the walls it has a bit of a 'Pret' vibe, but overall quite ok.

    Very good service from friendly staff. Delicious food. The pad thai is great. The brownie was the best brownie I ever had. And I've had some brownies in my time.

    The sushi roll starters are AMAZING, the best thing I've eaten in a long time. Certainly somewhere I would be happy taking a non vegan, as the dishes will impress anyone. The staff are friendly and personable. All in all I had a great evening. 3 courses where about £30 a head (excluding drinks). Certainly worth every penny

    We loved all the food. It was delicious and beautiful. The wine was a very pleasant surprise. The staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming it not intrusive. We will definitely return.
