Kitchen W8 is a contemporary Michelin-starred restaurant on well-heeled Kensington High Street. Nestled behind a sleek and unassuming black exterior, stunning presentation of seasonal, British food has earned W8 its critical acclaim.

Foregrounding provenance of food, the Kitchen W8 menu offers such mouth-watering combinations as caramelised loin and croquette of Pata Negra pork with potato, apple and watercress, and Roast Bresse pigeon with heritage beetroots, bulgur wheat, hazelnuts and bacon. A tasting menu showcases the restaurant's finest dishes and pairs with elegant complementing wines, while Sunday lunch is a refined approach to the comforting homely roast.

Elegant and understated, the interior at the Kitchen W8 restaurant in Kensington has been designed to create a relaxed ambience. Peppered with modern art and quirky patterning, it is an apt backdrop for picture-perfect cuisine and a host of sophisticated French and New World wines.

The distinctive jet black awning of Kitchen W8 in London is recognisable in the parade of shops on Abingdon Road, just off the High Street. It is a 5-minute walk to High Street Kensington Tube Station.

    The tasting menu was a good choice with excellent wineparring. The first four courses were SO good and delicious but the desserts where just ok and without wow factor... But I will be back :)

    The lunch menu is affordable
    Best dish for me was the mackrel and eel. Risotto of squash was also good. The two mains we're good. Pollock was a bit flaky to my liking and the dish was lacking color in my opinion .
    Great meal tho ! Good memories and we will be back (:

    Warm welcome from staff and welcoming atmosphere. Food was excellent. Only improvement I could suggest is that the toilets are heated. Also for a restaurant of that quality, toilets decoratively looked cheap.

    The tasting menu was excellent. All food was exquuiste and looked astonishing. It definitely warrants its Michelin star. In fact as far as the food and the service goes, it can rival with some of the 2* and 3* Michelin star restaurant I have been dining at.
    However, there was so much noice in the restaurants that at times I had trouble understanding my guest. Should have closed my eyes I would have thought that I was in some pub or bar ...
