Tom's Kitchen St Katharine Docks

Squaremeal Review of Tom's Kitchen St Katharine Docks ?

Set on the newly developed Commodity Quay with views across east London’s only marina, this branch of Tom’s Kitchen broadly follows the blueprint of its siblings around the capital. Warm timbers, a marble bar, leather banquettes and tiled walls festooned with portraits of Tom Aikens’ trusted suppliers set the tone, while the glass facade opens out onto a floating pontoon (due to open Spring 2015). The menu takes its cue from sustainably sourced British seasonal produce, although it’s broad-minded enough to include a few items from elsewhere: expect the likes of spicy crab cakes, haddock with a sweetcorn fritter, parsley and girolles, spatchcock baby chicken, truffled macaroni cheese or seven-hour confit lamb ahead of baked Alaska, jazzed-up profiteroles and flourless chocolate cake. The adjacent deli deals in sandwiches, soups, salads, jam-filled doughnuts and suchlike.

Had such a wonderful evening, great restaurant and in a perfect location. Food was really good we tried the new Mac and cheese Friday menu which was really nice and a great choice of drinks also available I will definitely be recommending your restaurant to others and I can't wait to return.

Not rocket science

by   platinum reviewer (216)

Sep 2015

The London restaurant scene is competitive across almost every part of the capital, and St Katherine’s Dock is no exception. This rather curious outpost of town – neither the City nor the East End, combining tourists from the Tower of London and suited office workers – has a plethora of options, one of which is Tom’s Kitchen, a cheerily English mini-chain. However, based on a recent weekday lunchtime visit here, there is no reason to return. Given the competition, it’s never been easy running a restaurant,...

Saved by the food...!

Jun 2015

Editor's pick A hurriedly arranged dinner with a friend arriving unexpectedly to London resulted in a Monday night booking at Toms Kitchen St Katharine Docks. Arriving at 9.30pm on a Monday night to a half empty restaurant we certainly did not expect to be met with the news that half of the menu highlights (our initial choices) were unavailable (no cushion of Herdwick Lamb, no Gateland farm Veal T Bone Steak, no mussels etc) and a waiter whose English was so unintelligible that it took the 3 of us between us...

    Luxury Columnist :: Luxury Columnist: Tom's Kitchen - Modern British Brasserie in St Katharine Docks

    St Katharine Docks is somewhat of a hidden London gem, though well known to some Londoners, it’s a place that visitors should seek out for its tranquility, picturesque surroundings and variety of eateries. Tom’s Kitchen is one of the best in the area, with a view overlooking the luxury yachts and a cool interior featuring exposed brickwork and a marble topped bar.

Tom Aikens

Tom Aikens’ colourful career has been a series of big highs and big lows, from achieving two Michelin stars at Pied à Terre by the age of 26 to being fired for branding a stagiaire with a palette knife and putting his company into administration. These days, the focus is on his British brasserie brand Tom’s Kitchen, but he is also hoping to relocate his Chelsea fine-dining flagship (closed in 2014) to central London.
