Dating back to 1986, Sonny’s Kitchen is a quirky and stylish London eatery from 2 Michelin-starred chef Phil Howard. Perfect for a whole range of dining demands, from bright and early brunches to supper clubs and dinner parties, the on-site food store makes it your one-stop-shop for all artisanal goodness.

Using the very best seasonal produce from the finest food producers, the Sonny’s Kitchen menu serves up contemporary British cuisine. Enjoy pan fried calves liver with creamed potato and bacon, or 35-day aged rib eye on the bone, served with fries and smoked bone marrow butter. Rustic plates include foie gras and chicken liver parfait on toasted sourdough, and slow-roasted Isle of White vine tomatoes with pesto on toasted ciabatta. The weekly-changing Sunday roast menu is undoubtedly a highlight.

A cool and contemporary dining space is the setting for these menu delights. With slick polished white tiles, stripped wooden floorboards and artwork adorning the walls, Sonny’s Kitchen restaurant is quirky and upbeat: the perfect venue for relaxed dining.

Rustic British cuisine from a 2-Michelin-starred chef, Sonny’s Kitche in Barnes sits 3minutes’ drive from Barnes and Barnes Bridge train stations.

    This is a local restaurant for us. However we dined a very infrequently because we come away never quite satisfied.

    On this occasion the experience was the same. There were not enough waiters and one that we had decided he wanted to be a floorshow.

    The food was very average and overpriced for what it was.

    The restaurant serve lovely food in an unhurried manner (it took quite a while for our order to be taken even though it was a quiet Monday evening).
    The Daube of beef was particularly delicious.

    Great restaurant with fantatsic food for a relaxed dinner

  • ((((( 5 February 2018 by Mustafa from LONDON

    Outstanding food and service. From the warm welcome the moment you enter, to the attentiveness and the quality of the staff who are always available to assist, and of course the food which was delicious.

    For the price, u could not recommend this place any higher and that is hard to find in and around London, where often the price doesn't match the quality and service.

    Would go again, good for any group (I went with my wife)

    It was absolutely excellent in every score. 2 of us ate off the short menu and 2 had burgers off the long menu and all enjoyed the food greatly. I was very pleased to be able to choose and drink the Mas de Daumas Gassac white which I never see on a restaurant wine list and which drank well and was good value at £28

    We left the restaurant without eating as we were unhappy with our table. Disappointed as when we went before we really enjoyed it. I recommend the restaurant only uses tables at the front for walk in customers. I don’t want to be offered second class seats if I’ve booked.

    Love Sonny's Kitchen. It's our go-to restaurant when we want to go somewhere a bit more fancy but still relaxed. The food is always delicious and the staff are great and super kid-friendly.
