5 Great Places to Eat in Cardiff

Cardiff’s recent surge of eateries has been nothing short of revolutionary in recent times. Pop ups and independent restaurants are thriving at the moment so if you, just like us, love eating out then you’ll want to know where the best places are at the moment in Cardiff.

Here at Thomas George, we’ve teamed up with Kacie Morgan from The Rare Welsh Bit who’s kindly given us her foodie expert thoughts. Follow Kacie on Twitter at @TheRareWelshBit.


We’ve also included a few of our own faves…

  • Depot

If you’re new to Cardiff and like your food, you simply have to visit the DEPOT, a street food pop-up event based in a warehouse on Dumballs Road. The Winter Social event runs every Friday and Saturday up until 19th December; follow the DEPOT on Facebook and Twitter for future dates.

The popular street food event features pop-up restaurants run by local, independent food producers including Big Fish Little Fish, Grillstock, Hokkei, Science Cream and more. Meals range from around £4-10. I love visiting the DEPOT with friends; we go ‘half and half’ on all the food we buy, so we each get to try a greater variety of food.

Pictured below is the Hellboy pizza from Doughboys Pizza, topped with salami, mozzarella, red chillies, spicy peppers and chilli sauce – freshly cooked in less than ten minutes in a wood-fired oven in the back of a van!



  • Vegetarian Food Studio

Looking for an affordable vegetarian restaurant? Look no further than Vegetarian Food Studio on Penarth Road, Grangetown. At this popular family-run Indian vegan and vegetarian restaurant, you can get main courses for £5 and a full thali platter for just £6.65, which includes two starters, curry, dahl (red lentil soup), steamed basmati rice, three rotli breads (or three puri or bhatura breads), poppadom, salad and a sweet dish.


This is the spinach paneer, cooked with spinach, garlic and onions – and the cashew nut, cinnamon and jeera (cumin) rice, with freshly made plain paratha.

  • Meat and Greek

If you love Greek food, then you’ll adore the succulent and tasty authentic cuisine at Meat and Greek. Owned by a South Wales based Greek Cypriot family, typical traditional dishes include Greek Souvlaki, stuffed peppers, Greek salad and spanakopita.


At reasonable prices and great, quick service, once you try Meat and Greek you’ll want to go back for more and more.

  • Locke and Remedy

 Here you’ll find the finest selection of burgers and wood fire pizzas in Cardiff. Their sourdough pizzas are cooked fresh to order and their burgers are made using the finest quality beef brisket and dry aged flank…yum!



With a very relaxed and chilled atmosphere, Lock and Remedy also offers a wide variety of unique and cool cocktails and craft beers, just bliss.
