This is a vegetarian restaurant, but non-vegetarians love eating here, too. Flavours from all over the world pop up on the menu – everything from quinoa salad through Thai green curry to grilled halloumi. If the thought of all that healthy eating bums you out, grab the cocktail list. The Gate is a five-minute walk from the Angel and right near Sadler’s Wells Theatre, so come in for a light dinner or drinks before the show. Booking’s advisable.
