SquareMeal Review of
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’.
