The Gate was established in 1989 by Michael and Adrian Daniel, brothers with an Indo-Iraqi heritage who wanted to recreate the diverse flavours and culinary experiences they had enjoyed as children, eating food with Arabic, Indian and Jewish influences.

Michael and Adrian’s Hammersmith restaurant quickly became a go-to destination for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike and its reputation grew. Now widely recognised as one of the best vegetarian restaurants in London, the UK and with accolades from around the world, The Gate is both a much-loved institution with a loyal and devoted following and a restaurant that has been quietly and confidently promoting healthy eating for almost three decades.

This focus on healthy eating is part of The Gate's holistic approach to its dishes: products are sourced as sustainably - and locally - as possible, and the carefully curated menu allows the delicate and unique tastes of plant-based ingredients to sing from the plate.

The Gate has won numerous awards and accolades including a 3* Sustainability rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association, best vegetarian restaurant in the world as chosen by Epicurious and was named the ‘jewel in the crown’ of vegetarian restaurants in London by Conde Nast Traveller.
