Greenz is a completely vegetarian restaurant, as we use no animal products. We are situated right by Tulse Hill station, close to Streatham and Brixton in south London.
Our restaurant serves delicious fare, inspired by our travels around the world and our Caribbean heritage, ranging from rotis, bean burgers and a delicious cashew nut and mushroom wellington.
We have a small range of gluten-free dishes on our menu and all our meals are suitable for those who are lactose intolerant.
Our dairy-free desserts and gluten-free cakes are especially popular! We even have sugar-free cakes which are suitable for diabetics.
A bespoke service is available for those on special diets, but please inform us of your dietary needs when booking your table so that we can make the necessary preparation in advance of your visit.
Our healthy take-away options are popular with those who are too busy to cook supper.
Our cookery classes and life-style workshops run on Monday evenings from 7pm – 8:30pm.
For further information, please call the restaurant on (020) 8678 0569.
We’ll be hosting our second speed-dating event on Sunday 16th November at 6pm.

Please feel free to bring your own alcohol when you dine at greenz.
I first heard about these two “green superfoods” about a decade ago. Basically, they are both algae, which grow ponds. They are both rich in chlorophyll, which cleanses the liver and removes waste efficiently from the bowels. So, investment in Andrex is needed! :0)
Chlorophyll also enhances the immune system. I must say that since I’ve been using them, coughs and colds have become a thing of the past, so they’ve definately had a positive effect on my immunity. Both Spirulina and Chlorella have a number of nutrients, including iron and vitamin B12. They can be taken in tablet form or as a powder. Please feel free to do your own research on these ‘super foods’ and see if they’ll help you.
Our greenz gift vouchers make fabulous Christmas presents. They’re available in £10 and £20 denominations and can be redeemed against a meal at greenz or one of our cooking classes. You may purchase them either by coming into the restaurant or ordering them by phone or email. If you would like them to be posted to you, there will be a £2.00 P&P charge.
Our book for November is ‘The Corrections’ by Jonathan Frantzen.
The book revolves around a Midwestern couple and their three adult children, tracing their lives from the mid-twentieth century to “one last Christmas” together near the turn of the millennium. The novel was awarded the National Book Award in 2001 and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize in 2002.
We’ll be meeting to discuss the book on Tuesday 25th November at 7:30pm and tucking into specially prepared set meal while we do so. Please call on
(020) 8678 0569 OR email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and to book your places.

With it being the new year, I’m sure that many of you are making new years resolutions to lose weight in 2013. I thought I’d share with you, my own personal experience of losing weight, but, more importantly, how I have maintained a healthy weight for the last 20 years or so, since becoming a vegetarian.
In addition to eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and taking plenty of exercise, I try to stay away from processed foods and have as many wholefoods as possible. This governs my philosophy for what I cook at greenz. I use brown rice in the Trini-India Fusion, wholemeal pasta in the Lasagne and greenz own homemade wholemeal pastry for the Pumpkin and Black eye bean pie. This is because wholemeal foods keep you full for longer and so you’re less likely to crave unhealthy snacks. Vegetarian and vegan foods are also extremely tasty and so you don’t feel as if I’m missing out on anything at all by opting for this sort of diet.
