Tibits

Located off the hustle and bustle of Regent Street on Heddon Street is a small oasis housing a number of restaurant/bars including Tibits. The Tibits vision is to be a high-class, fast food vegetarian restaurant and from my experience, it is certainly a vegetarian experience like no other!

The concept at Tibits is that it both a take-away and sit down restaurant. The restaurant itself is fitted out to a high standard – as you would expect given its Mayfair location.

I dined on a Tuesday evening and it was fairly busy. On entering the restaurant we were greeted by the friendly manager Antony and shown to our table. As it was my first time to Tibits, Antony was more than happy to walk me through the process of dining at Tibits.

At Tibits, rather than paying per dish, you pay per grams – meaning it is set up as a buffet where you take a plate (I was impressed they also had heated plates if you wanted a hot plate!) and help yourself to the fresh and delicious goodies on offer that day.

All the food is made in-house and each dish as a note advising you of the allergens in the dish. This is the list of what is noted on the dish notes.

Tibits even had gluten-free bread of offer!

After loading up on a bit of all the yummy gluten-free dishes that were available, we took our plates to be weighed. As mentioned before, the concept at Tibits is that you pay for what you eat so whether you are super hungry or just want a snack – you can regulate how much you eat. The prices for dinner is £2.50 per 100g (lunch is £2.30 per 100g).

 A word of warning, with all the delicious food on offer, you may suffer from a case of your eyes being bigger than your stomach. My dinner plate came to a total of £15.20.

Tibits have a number of fresh juices on offer so I decided to try the Tutti Fruitti juice which was very more-ish.  Their bottles of wines are from £15 .

I’m a big fan of dessert (I’m sure we have a separate stomach just for dessert as I always seem to have room!) so I decided to try what vegetarian/gluten-free offerings Tibits had. Disappointingly, on the day that I dined, there was not a large choice of gluten-free desserts available – there was only fruit salad and a vanilla sauce (which was nice but nothing special).

 Tibits also have a vegetarian cookbook available for purchase which is also available on Amazon so you can make your favourite Tibits dishes at home!

TIbits also offer a frequent dinerscard that gives you benefits the more you dine.

The total bill for 2 main meals, 2 juices and 2 desserts was £42.30. We were told that during summertime, those sitting in the outside seating area can experience live music on offer in Heddon Street. If you are in the Regent Street area, Tibits is an excellent place to visit if you want a fresh, vegetarian (and gluten-free) and healthy meal (to eat in or take away).
