Been looking forward to trying this place for a while. Gotta be totally honest and say I was underwhelmed, did not live up to the hype. The queuing system was bizarre. There were no menus and it was hard to work out how things worked. Was forced into buying meal I was not happy with due to pressure and no... More

BRILLIANT PLACE TO EAT. Whether you go to the `deli' service or sit down service further down the alley the food is fabulous. Been here with a vegan and a carnivore at the same time and both were very happy with the food (as was I)! The quiche and choice of 5 salads is an excellent deal and I can... More

A perfect soup for lunch. Bacon, lentils, cider & dijon. Lots of lovely vegetables. Very filling and very tasty. I had a chunk of sourdough bread with it - just perfect. Will definitely eat here again.

Fantastic. The food is really, really good. All home cooked and xceptional quality. Such a variety and cooked fresh for that day, once it's gone it's gone. A real gem.

Another visit & another lovely soup for lunch. It was a difficult choice as 3 soups on offer all sounded good. We went for the white onion with Parmesan & cider, this was so tasty & a nice chunk of granary bread was a lovely accompaniment. The menu also looks good. We will be back to try something else!

We came to Baba Ganoush during our few days in Kendal as it was recommended to me as having good vegetarian choices. It's quite a small place with tiny tables so it was quite squished for the four of us to eat but the food was lovely. I had a piece of quiche in a salad box where I had... More

Made the effort to find this on the strength of previous TA reports. Glad we did. We went in the deli and had a great little lunch. One of the best salad boxes I have had; and my wife's special ( hotpot ) was great as well. Good quality ingredients, great portions and reasonable prices with friendly staff. Nothing not... More
