Cristiano Vitelli is a professional pizza chef, and he's one of the owners. He has been exploring going vegan since the summer of 2016.

Chai Naasto have a branch in Beckenham and Hammersmith. What's different about the one they've just opened in Harrow, is that it's a pure vegetarian restaurant!

They have also made it super easy to order, by marking available 'options' clearly on the menu.

What's so good about Villa Pompei in Pinner, London?
Villa Pompei is an Italian restaurant that's located in Pinner. It's spacious, and the seating areas are set up, so that large parties have a slightly separate section.

This means that they can veganise a huge amount of items on their menu, and it's not bother to them, because they were going to make it from scratch anyway!Read More
