We are sad to hear that Malcolm Tandy, owner of Cafe Nomad, died peacefully last Tuesday, 27th March 2012. Malcolm was an expert master chef producing the best vegan & vegetarian food in Nottingham. He has owned or worked at all the best vege restaurants in Nottingham from The Beehive in Hockley in the 80′s, his 5-star vege restaurant ’10′ in the Lace Market in the early 90′s and Cafe Nomad in Carrington that sadly closed at the end of last year. He was always at the helm in forwarding vegetarianism, endeavoring to make vegetarian food accepted and available to all. His hard work has helped to erase main stream stigmas about vegetarian food by creatively replacing meat with vegetarian and vegan ingredients inspired by is his travels to India and Morocco. He was able to transform traditional and popular non veg dishes in to an ‘a la carte’ menu that was loved by carnivores and vegans alike. He was always a great host bringing fun and personality into his restaurants and his food was at the cutting edge of vegetarian cuisine. His flavours and friendly atmospheres will be missed by the many who have tasted his talent for cooking. A great empty feeling now exists in our hearts and in our bellies!

It has had a small refurb and looks very nice, but still relaxed style. It it small but friendly. The food is proper "old school veggie" which is such a nice treat and everything is cooked fresh. I go there from Derby as I enjoy the food so much. Its really well priced too, and you take your own booze- bargin! Positive becci moore

What a lovely place, with inspired dishes. My vegetarian children always love having a broader choice than is usual at most restaurants, and had trouble choosing. So did we! In the end we had 4 different dishes. My mushroom stroganoff was superb, and my son enjoyed his mixed vegetable pancake. My daughter had a tagine, as she was feeling adventurous, and my husband had the nut roast. The flavours were so subtle and delicious, as other people have said you do not miss meat at all! (not that I usually do). The service was friendly and well informed, and we enjoyed watching the food being expertly prepared. And the cost represented excellent value! We had a bit of a problem finding the restaurant, but I think this is because the city fathers in Nottingham are very stingy with their road signs, not because it is in a difficult to reach place! We bought our booze at the Aldi down the road (or do I mean Lidl?) So if you are in the area, and have a good map, go! Positive Joanna

The food here is amazing by far the best I have ever tasted. With me not being a vegeterian I thought I would miss the meat but there was so much flavour I didn't even notice. The atmosphere is great you really get into the morrocan theme they also have a belly dancing night once a month I have never been but I have heard great reviews. The staff are very friendly and the food comes out quickly. It's perfect for me and my partner as it's right on our doorstep so we have been quite a few times. You get value for money and you always leave feeling full. I would recommend Cafe Nomad to everyone and you must try the Garlic Mushrooms they are the best. ENJOY! Positive Hollie and Mark

The bad reviews of my restaurant on your site are from when I just opened and had bad staff. This problem has now been rectified and we now only offer great service and food! Thank You, Malcolm Tandy Neutral Malcolm Tandy

Holds about 20 people and the kitchen area is open to the dining area so it can get hot. Unpretentious eg the tables and chairs don't match. Share a starter or a pudding? - no problem. Take your own wine. Friendly service but only one waitress so relax. The food is superb and it's excellent value. We fed 6 adults to an 'absolutely stuffed' level for £64. Positive Steve Thorpe

I booked a table for three - when we arrived - they had booked afull house instead - obviously a room full of people made them more moneythen us 3 and there a new business but we don't feel they played fair here -to add insult to injury they started an argument and blamed us - I was quitekeen to support a new veg resturant in Notts but will not return alas.

Cafe Nomad is compact, but the vegan food choice is megga, the menu is a sensibly priced, a warm welcome is assured. The food is delicious, the portions are generous, the dishes are prepared to order, what a gem. There are evenings with a belly dancer to add to the atmosphere. If you enjoy food then do not miss the Cafe Nomad - it may have a no frills appearance, go inside and try the excellent cuisine, I did and wow, that is why I have written this review. Try and enjoy.

Small, informal restaurant in former greasy spoon premises serving a range of veggie and vegan dishes and fresh juices. You can bring your own alcohol. Not been open long, service a bit slow but food seems promising. Neutral Sharon
