Red Pocket is a new restaurant at Battersea area and I only came across it through browsing Timeout London. The waitress told us that it was only opened late in March. Food was really good especially the crispy chicken with sweet sake sauce, grilled beef (Genghis Khan Style), grilled chilean sea bass and the curry leaf soft shell crab for the starter. I was slightly suspicious when I saw the presentation of the grilled beef and after tasting the sea bass. It sort of reminded me of Hakkasan style of cooking. Apparently, the waitress told us that the head chef at Red Pocket was a former chef from Hakkasan (Sous or Head … that I was not sure of). They do serve good mojitos which is good for this weather but other cocktails aren't so great and I think they should work on it. My gin martini was too diluted for my taste. I think those living in Chelsea might want to give it a try as it is not too far of to get to if you are looking to have very good Chinese food. Problem I had was telling the cab driver that I wanted to go to Hotel Verta. Cab driver was not sure and others may not know where it is. Best to tell them Battersea Heliport :) As this review is written during the British Summer, I think it would be better to dine outside if possible, found the rooms inside to be quite warm.
