Squaremeal Review of Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms ?

“Ignore the strange location and make the trip – you won’t be disappointed”, advises a fan of Sat Bains’ “tranquil” restaurant-with rooms marooned in Nottingham’s industrial wastelands. Those who head out to this startling barn conversion are rewarded with some unrelentingly “clever and interesting” cooking from a two-Michelin-starred chef – albeit at frighteningly high prices (“come prepared to sell your granny”, warns one reader). Evening meals take place in two rather neutral, stone-floored dining rooms, but the focus is unequivocally on Bains’ meticulously planned tasting menus – a succession of startling dishes with powerhouse hits across the board. Expect obtuse pairings and dazzling presentation, from the tantalisingly titled ‘black evolved scallop’ (with seaweed and Exmoor caviar) to ‘blue mountain’ hare with pear, Stilton and chocolate or crab satay with kohlrabi tagliatelle and ‘glasshouse’ pesto. After that, a ‘crossover’ signals the move towards sweetness in the shape of, say, a mind-blowing combo of strawberry, tomato, olive oil and vanilla. Amanda Bains oversees the “fantastic” sweet-natured staff, and the thoughtfully assembled big-money wine list is irresistible. Note: pre-booked lunches can be taken at the chef’s table, kitchen bench and within ‘Nucleus’ (the development kitchen), subject to availability.

    Gingey Bites :: Review: Sat Bains, Nottingham | Gingey Bites

    I officially have the BEST friends in the world. For my 30th back in November, I was treated by two of my friends to dinner at the two Michelin starred Sat Bains! Finally, last weekend after what seemed like forever, the day finally rolled around and we headed over to Nottingham full of excitement for what was bound to be an amazing evening!

Sat Bains

2008 Sat Bains

Born to a Punjabi family in Derby, Sat Bains only went into catering ‘for the girls’, but has gone on to win two Michelin stars and put Nottingham firmly on the map. Despite being the underdog, he won the Roux Scholarship in 1999 – an opportunity that took him to Le Jardin Des Sens in France. Subsequently, he was appointed head chef at Nottingham’s Hotel des Clos, which re-launched as Restaurant Sat Bains in 2002.
