The Star of Kings

Squaremeal Review of The Star of Kings ?

The latest venture from the chap behind the Star of Bethnal Green has won a fair few fans & it’s easy to see why. As well as showcasing some of the capital’s best up-&-coming DJs, it also hosts quizzes, screens sporting fixtures & dishes up some surprisingly good grub. Bar snacks/starters could include a soft-boiled duck egg with smoked haddock & spicy mayo or a plate of potato wedges with parsley & garlic salsa. Main courses are equally robust – think stone-baked pizzas, beef burritos & fabada asturiana (a Spanish peasant stew of beans & chorizo) – while drinks cater for all tastes. Staff are as unpretentious & refreshing as the venue itself, Monday nights offer two-for-one pizzas, & the £5 weekday lunch is a steal. What’s not to like?

We came here on a quiet Monday evening, and I mean very quiet. From 7-8:30pm, we were the only ones eating, although there were a few other drinkers around. I believe it becomes a club at night, which would probably be more bustling. The food was fantastic – between £7-12 for a main, which is really not that much more than the microwaved stuff from Wetherspoons (yeugh). With a TasteCard, my boyfriend and I ordered two mains (a burger and burrito) with 2 beers and the bills only came to £14 – a right...

Came here for lunch and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. A tad on the pricey side but nothing out of the ordinary for London and definitely worth it as the food was good quality with a diverse menu to choose from. I would definitely come again if I was in the area, maybe for drinks as bespoke cocktails are available from the bar.

Since the refurbishment at the beginning of the year, The Star of Kings really flourished. The menu is sophisticated and well thought out, with dynamic flavour combinations. The amosphere and service are also fantastic, which adds to the overall dining experience.
