Riverside Vegetaria

This local vegan restaurant has been in business for nearly 33 years has some of the best dishes to offer Kingston residents.  

The owner, Ritchie Sakthivel whose Sri Lankan background, as well as African and Caribbean influences, has inspired some exquisite dishes such as one of their most popular, Masala Dosai.  

It is a crispy pancake filled with hot spicy potatoes served with a colourful salad palette and curry inspired dips. 

Sakthivel was a finalist for Kingston Borough Business Award in 2021 in the food and beverage category.

The mezze platter is the perfect starter with creamy hummus, warm flatbread and pickles.  

The Orange Blossom Mouhalabia is a traditional Lebanese milk pudding with seeds, dates and figs and is an absolute must.
