If big bowls, large plates and jolly staff were the benchmark of a good restaurant, then Tom’s Kitchen would be in the top league. Staff seemed to know what they were doing and did it readily, and this is probably the most positive comment I can make. A menu that read nicely unfortunately didn’t translate into well executed dishes. Intrigue got the better of us when we fell for a portion of the incongruous sounding truffle chips with parmesan cheese, soon realising that chips if good (which these were, big and crisp) do not need this kind of embellishment. Costly for a cramped experience with no frills Although virtually a different species from its sibling, Tom Aiken’s does provide better enjoyment factor for your £££, but prior to visit make sure to bolster the wallet, bearing in mind you will find the food there is in another league.
The bill here came to more for fewer diners (evening mark-up granted) than our lunch earlier that day at Zafferano where food, wine and surroundings were far superior. Comparative bill totals including 1 bottle wine :
TK – £140 for 2 persons (1 starter, 2 mains + 3 sides – no prime meat cuts) Z – £125 for 3 persons (3 mains + 1 side ordered specially – 2 prime meat cuts)
I hope they do breakfasts better!
