SquareMeal Review of Ma Cuisine

1

"GOOD"

After a much-needed wash & brush-up, John McClements’s French bistro is gleaming clean & sparkly. Not that much has changed: the tablecloths are still retro gingham, the barn-like ceiling still exposed to view. Nevertheless, the spruce-up has produced an air of intentional nostalgia, & the locals who had been frequenting the restaurant in dribs & drabs are now coming in their droves. They receive properly cooked French classics – coquilles St Jacques with thermidor sauce, black pudding en croûte with Dijon sauce, cassoulet & coq au vin – nicely served & at a fraction of the price of the West End. Likewise, the French wine list contains plenty of choice under £20. Vegetarians get slim pickings, but familiar French desserts (crêpe Suzette, rum baba) end meals on a high. Ma Cuisine will never be comfortable enough to be a destination restaurant, but as a local, it’s hard to beat.

You can eat quite expensively or quiet cheaply here – excellent bistro style French food – busy yet informal.

We have visited here a number of times and the food is always of a high standard and is true VFM. Service has ocassionaly been slow but it is worth the visit. The homemade black pudding en croute is a must.

We'd heard good reports and we were impressed by the food though the menu is a bit self consciously ‘old French’. The service was more than a bit over eager and the atoshpere – with some quaint old Kew characters on all sides – was definitely not youthful. We'd have been very happy if it was more reasonably priced too – recent repots that prices have ‘crept up’ are not wrong – its over the top for what its offering.
