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.

This was our second visit to this restaurant and once again it did not disappoint. (Birthday treat) We had the tasting menu which was very good. Especially liked the cod fillet (neither of us being fish lovers). Food is beautifully presented and each dish is explained on delivery. Would highly recommend if only for a one off treat. Staff are very attentive without being intrusive. Not cheap but good value for money.

Very pretty room, friendly service, and delicious food. We had the set menu with a carafe of the cheapest white wine (£16) and it was very good. Bite sized portions, but rich enough to be truly satisfying. The main course pollock was cooked to perfection with a sumptuous cream sauce.
