SquareMeal Review of Michael Nadra Primrose Hill

Chef Michael Nadra proved his worth in Chiswick before branching out with this more ambitious Primrose Hill restaurant. Chic urban design sets the tone for his signature eclectic style and fans won’t be disappointed by a menu that showcases creative flavour combinations. Stand-outs on a recent visit included delicate prawn, scallop and chive dumplings in a vibrant green pool of broccoli and spinach velouté and perfectly roasted cod in an intense bisque with ‘sea spaghetti’ and plump Shetland mussels – although the culinary flair shines through right up to classic desserts such as melting chocolate fondant with rich salted caramel. Affordable fixed-price menus, weekend brunch and Sunday roasts are further draws, and there’s also a dedicated martini bar with around 20 different creations – try the chilli-infused ‘hot passion’. The canal-side site ranges over different levels, with the added bonus of an alfresco terrace.

Another dinner at this restaurant showed it's still good, with interesting ingredients and good cooking. My starter of broccoli and greens soup with thin crispy crostini was light and pleasant, as was the garden salad with tomatoes, goat cheese and pomegranate, with really crusty rye bread rolls. Our main courses were very good - steamed sea bass with prawn & chive dumplings, bok choy, carrot puree & crab bisque sauce went down well, with a side order of triple cooked chips which were perfect - crunchy outside and fluffy inside. My herb crusted hake with lobster risotto was excellent, with nice chunks of juicy lobster. Dessert sounded too good to miss. The treacle tart with raspberry sorbet wasn't quite as expected, the tart filling being a bit thin and runny though the raspberry sorbet was fresh and zingy. The chocolate fondant with salt caramel ice cream was yummy with plenty of caramel sauce and crunchy caramel chippings with the ice cream. Service was rather slow, we weren't in a hurry so it didn't matter, but did notice at one point that not one table in the room had any food in front of them. Everyone was having a good time though with friends and family so it didn't seem to be a problem, and we'd be happy to go back again.

We were a family group of five, all adults, and had 3 courses with aperitifs, wine and port. The food was excellent, well flavoured and interesting. Lobster ravioli and softshell crab tempura stand out starters, steak and pork perfectly cooked, good cheese board and short list of desserts but were very good. Service excellent, attentive without being intrusive. The space is interesting, and we were in an area on our own but the main restaurant area seemed as though it could be quite noisy.
