Manuka Kitchen


SquareMeal Review of Manuka Kitchen

Over the past three years Manuka’s modern Euro cooking with a Kiwi twist has wowed locals. Owners Joseph Antippa and Tyler Martin have now opened a second restaurant in Marylebone, Salt & Honey, leaving their Fulham enterprise in the hands of others. So, does the original still deliver? The fairly minimalist decor of the cosy dining area is little changed, although a basement cocktail bar has been added; the good-value menu has also expanded, yet remains attractively concise. From this, pan-fried scallops with cauliflower purée and truffle honey was a lovely combination of clean flavours let down by small shellfish. However, a main-course special of pork belly was cooked to perfection with earthy accompaniments of Puy lentils and mushrooms; and sea bream came with a delicious truffle mash, clams and hazelnut pesto. For pudding, salted caramel pannacotta was sublime. The verdict? Manuka Kitchen has maintained its ‘great little restaurant’ status.

A small, intimate, bistro restaurant offering delicious food with a Kiwi twist.  The portions are perfectly sized, the fusion flavours are delicious and the staff are attentive and friendly. The barrell aged negronis set you up for the food ahead. The kitchen is tiny, you can see it through the hatch at the back of the restaurant, but everyone is always smiling and enjoying themselves.  It translates into the good food and there is always enough room for the manuka honey truffles at the end of the meal.

Wonderful bistro with exceptional food with a Kiwi spin. Small, busy, staff are always smiley and the small kitchen is visible. Our go to night out in Fulham. Delicious!

Best local restaurant!
Absolutely love this place! Seriously impressive food, and so reasonably priced. Atmosphere is very intimate and cosy. Went for brunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Great wines too! Can't recommend it enough. Staff is very friendly. Perfect for a date, or a brunch with friends and family!
