Food For Thought – A look at some of Harrow’s vegan restaurants

In 2024, around 2.5 million Brits enjoy a vegan diet and, in this article, we’re going to be looking at some of the best vegan restaurants in our borough.

Ahimsa – The Vegan Cafe

Launched in 2016, Ahimsa, on the Red Lion Parade, Pinner, was inspired by a pilgrimage through the mountains of Nepal and Tibet on a journey to Mount Kailash. The word “ahimsa” is translated from the ancient Sanskrit language as “not to injure”. The concept for the cafe was conceived by Mohanji, who realised that ‘there’s no use preaching to people about adopting a cruelty-free vegan diet if there are no places for people to eat affordable vegan food’. Open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week, Ahimsa serves a range of 100% vegan food including breakfast, wraps, bowls and burgers.

Yooow Vegan (Takeaway / delivery)

For those with a taste for the exotic, Yooow Vegan in Stanmore offers a delivery service via Deliveroo and UberEats. Focusing on big Caribbean flavours, Yooow’s mission is to prove that meat-free doesn’t have to mean taste-free.

Parathas Lounge

Bringing South Indian food to North Harrow, the Parathas Lounge was first opened in 2020, Parathas Lounge boasts an impressively large menu for both eat-in and takeaway and, while primarily vegetarian, does offer a great range of vegan dishes.

The Junction

If pub grub is your thing, the conveniently located Junction in Harrow has got you covered. Large, light and airy, the pub offers a separate and expansive vegetarian and vegan menu throughout the day and night.

The Castle

The Sunday roast is a British staple and Harrow favourite, The Castle, delivers with vegetarian and vegan options such as the Beetroot Wellington among other plant-based dishes. A word of warning – the pub does get extremely busy on Sundays so it’s always best to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
