SquareMeal Review of Malibu Kitchen at The Ned

A touch of Californian sunshine within Soho House’s new hotel and dining complex, Malibu Kitchen combines West-Coast food trends and Mediterranean ingredients. The results include superfood salads and plenty of raw dishes, alongside fresh juices and smoothies. Named after architect Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens (who designed it in the 1920s), The Ned used to be Midland Bank’s HQ. Reimagined as a hotel and leisure hub, this sprawling building’s ground-floor restaurants are laid out in the former banking hall, all occupying one, open-plan area.

SEW bronze reviewer 22 July 2017

I had booked the Malibu Kitchen after a recommendation to go and check out The Ned because it was close to my office. The old Midland Bank banking hall has been transformed into one of the most "fun" locations in the City. I had chosen the Malibu Kitchen from the other 9 restaurants in The Ned because of its leaning to health eating. In fact it is more of a "nod" to healthy eating because though the food is indeed packed made up of goodness, the portion sizes are truly American and it is very easy to over order. The food is flavourful and moorish, the service is attentive without being over-bearing, my only minor gripe would be that I don't particularly like sitting at a counter and there are relatively few booths. However, I left inspired to go and check out the other establishments at The Ned.

Having visited various other restaurants at The Ned I was super excited for lunch at Malibu Kitchen! I am someone who suffers from various food intolerances/allergies and both the menu and staff were very helpful and accommodating - in fact I could eat most things which is very unusual! Didn't love the decor but the food was amazing, especially for the price so I was very impressed. Not many restaurants in the City that offer a menu like this so it was very welcome. I can't wait to go back!
