Stylish Self-Service and Cruelty-Free Food at Tibits

Stylish Self-Service and Cruelty-Free Food at Tibits

I’ve been vegetarian for nearly three years now and I’ve never been to a restaurant that only serves cruelty-free food. So Iain (also vegetarian) and I decided to celebrate World Vegetarian Day in style.

I was so excited that is was World Vegetarian Day, I spent a good part of my lunch hour scouring the Internet for somewhere nearby to eat. I read a ton of list-style articles and was thrilled to see we were spoilt for choice. I went back and forth, probably annoying my very patient boyfriend, then finally we decided on Regent Street’s Tibits.


I’m a big fan of buffets so I was immediately excited by Tibits’ set-up. Most of the buffet restaurants I’ve encountered have never really been all that aesthetically pleasing, so I was really surprised when we set foot in Tibits.

Tibits has a very contemporary feel to it and you immediately feel welcome. Surrounded by slightly livelier bars and restaurants, it’s a cosy and trendy escape from the busy streets surrounding it.


The restaurant has a wide range of both vegetarian and vegan recipes at their stylish self-service restaurant. The buffet contains a range of delicious food from soups, sauces, hot dishes, salads, juice and desserts from all over the world.

You pay by weight and an average plate is between £12 and £14. I was worried about overspending so I put food on my plate vicariously. I left Tibits feeling satisfied and pleasantly surprised at what I had spent considering the part of London we were in. With a single alcoholic drink, my total came to about £13 with my meal at the £8 mark.

I highly recommend and cannot wait to go back and try the desserts!

    My friend would love it here! She gets cross at menus that only have 1 vegetarian option as that contains mushrooms a lot of the time. She is a vegetarian but she doesn’t like mushrooms.

      I’m with your friend, mushrooms are gross! I hate that restaurants assume that’s all we eat.

  10. October 5, 2015 / 10:23 am

    This looks like a great restaurant for vegetarians, plenty of choice of what to order!

    This sounds great. I’m not a vegetarian but I love food like that. The paying by weight thing would scare me though – I tend to pile my plate high at buffets, I’m very greedy! x

      October 12, 2015 / 8:26 am

      Haha I must say this was a big worry of mine too!

  13. October 5, 2015 / 2:50 pm
