I don't know of any exclusively vegan restaurants. So in that respect the plates, and cutlery will have been used to eat meat & dairy products, but that would be a compromise inherent in eating out.
I have eaten well at Thai Silk, Taz, the Chinese Cafe in The Cut
, and of course Pizza Express
, (near Shell-Mex house) who will be happy to rustle up a cheese-free pizza, while your buddy can munch away safe in the knowledge that the base is dairy free.
You can tell him/her the vice chair of the Vegan Society
recommended the above.
