SquareMeal Review of Kitchin N1

Built around an open ‘theatre-island’ kitchen, where customers can watch chefs preparing pasta, flashing their wok skills and manning tandoori ovens, Kitchin N1 bills itself as an international ‘buffet restaurant’. Flavours from Italy, China, India and Thailand dominate a crowd-pleasing menu that kicks off with a host of starters ranging from Greek salad, Mozzarella caprese and sushi to seekh kebabs, pakoras and crispy won tons. After that, take your pick from an assortment of main courses along the lines of chicken korma, penne arrabbiata, Szechuan beef and vegetable chow mein, plus a choice of pizzas. There’s also a special selection of seafood at the weekends, while Saturday night sees the addition of crispy duck with pancakes and hoisin sauce. For afters, perhaps try apple crumble, chocolate fondue or something from the ice cream ‘station’.

We visited this place for dinner last evening and it was buzzing! The manager told us it was seafood night as we were seated and true enough, every section, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Italian had a special or two on. We worked our way through the cold selection which had braised mussels, whitefish and shrimp. There was as massive scottish salmon with butter sauce and we really enjoyed that. Fish curry from goa on the indian side, a mixed seafood green curry on the thai side. There was really a lot of food available so we stuck to the premium ones. A bottle of Chabli went down well with the seafood. Decently priced at around £18 for the weekend.
