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.

    This visit - my second to Kitchen W8 these few years (I am based in Singapore) rewrote my impressions of chicken breast as a main course. Wow - you served it innovatively with girolles, jersey royales and chicken consommé which sounded odd but the whole thing rocked!!! Kudos.

    Excellent experience

  • ((((( 10 June 2018 by KS from London

    Everything was lovely. The environment was quiet and relaxing- just what we wanted. The food was spectacular. The lamb three ways was the best lamb we have tasted. We really enjoyed our meal. I give 4 out of 5 for service only because it was a little bit difficult communicating with our waiter in english, but was so lovely (everybody was). Thank you for a wonderful experience!
