Food was delayed and starters and main arrived together. Food was cold.
I resented paying 15% surcharge which I was forced to pay.

BAD CHRISTMAS DINNER.
Typical bad English cooking. Over boiled vegetables and dry Turkey. Spent 240 pounds on dinner for two. Bad mistake/ Bad Food... Greek waitress was super nice but she could not save the day. Restaurant needs to hire a new chef. ( This restaurant was good when it was Asia de Cuba ) skip it, find somewhere else.

We had a wonderful Christmas dinner here. We needed vegan food for two and this was one of the only restaurants that did it. The first two courses were on the menu anyway, but for dessert the chef made sorbet especially for us. All the food was delicious, the portion sizes were huge! The service was excellent.

I recall this being Asia de Cuba in a previous incarnation. Difficult to find on the street. Actually not as good as it was when it was Asia de Cuba. Some dishes very good, but some rather unsuccessful. Too busy or not enough waiters. Sent wine back, replacement was better.

All in all now that Asia de Cuba have moved out and we have the East and West Kitchen our experience was particularly bad. The first calamari was soggy and not crispy at all and had to be sent back. The risotto came and sat on table for 15 mins and was luke warm, had to be sent back. None of the food came out at the same time - we clearly complained as we felt the whole experience was substandard for a hotel location as prestigious as the St Martin’s Lane Hotel should be so much better. In the end we agreed with the restaurant manager who waived the cost of starters and mains and we ended up paying for drinks, desert and Coffees. All in all not a great experience and somewhere I couldn’t recommend unless the kitchen and front of house staff undergo a serious change. Very disappointed overall.

At. Martin’s Kitchen was a real surprise. It’s housed in a hotel, which we weren’t expecting and initially didn’t look that appealing. However the service was very good as was the food. We had the house wine which was great value for money. If I was a make a single complaint it would be the odd shaped plates (use round ones please). We will certainly be back, and we recommend this restaurant.

We had the bottomless brunch. We both close the steak sandwich with fries. The fries were particularly good. The choice of cocktails was good and my favourite cocktail was well made, and they kept the drinks coming. There was never a long wait. The decor was interesting but the ambiance could be improved. That said I would return for the bottomless brunch which was definitely good value.

I enjoy dining here: the service is as warm and effortless as the standard of the food is high. The pre-theatre menu is good value for the standard of West-East fusion food.

A hidden bolt hole, excellent location for pre-theatre dining around St Martin's Lane.
Enjoyable Asian cuisine, not spectacular but enjoyable enough to make me go back when I am in the area.
Our waitress was friendly and efficient and had taken note, from my booking, that we had limited time.

It was ok for bottomless brunch you order your drink on demand so it takes ages between drinks which is so annoying.

It’s really quiet so depending on if you like an atmosphere depends on if you like it here. The staff are lovely but overall I was left a bit flat to be honest. I’ve been to a lot of bottomless brunches but this wasn’t the best especially if your girlfriends are coming down looking for a good time.

Nice place to take your nana tho ! Haha

We enjoyed our visit to St Martins Lane Kitchen. Staff were excellent, food delicious. Very disappointed in the extreme noise from a Hen party. Not great for other diners and the background boom boom from somewhere.

The soft shell crab starter was over fried - just a load of crispy nothing.... my red curry was ok but nothing special. I was disappointed with the food, but the ambience is really nice.

We booked for my birthday, the bottomless menu has changed & no-more bottomless champagne but still amazing. Vicky C was on top form as always & looked after us superbly - never an empty glass! We all had the burger which is a new menu addition, from someone who is not a burger eater it was very nice.

The room still lacks something not sure if it’s music but just missing something but the food, cocktails & Vicky, all on point!

Thank you for a fab sitting & we look forward to seeing you all in November, we fly over again!

Have to say am deeply disappointed the the excellent Asia de Cuba has been replaced by this drab attempt at filling the shoes. The staff were lovely but the food mediocre and it’s just missing something vital... please bring back Asia de Cuba..... or work hard on this one

Loved the East and West theme of the menu, it meant there was something for everyone. I went with East, I had an amazing tofu glass noodle salad and sweet potato curry. Our waitress was very friendly and added to our experience . The only slightly down side was how quiet the restaurant was meaning it lacked a little atmosphere when we first arrived. I can't understand why it was so quiet when both food and service were excellent, perhaps it is due to summer holidays.

It has been a while since we were last at this restaurant (when it was Asia de Cuba), but we were left distinctly underwhelmed by our pre-theatre supper. The staff were unfailingly polite and the service rapid, but what was once a cutting edge hotel and restaurant seems to have got stuck in a rut, whilst the rest of the world has moved on. I'm sorry to say it was distinctly average overall.

Although the service was excellent, some regular customers behaviour was unacceptable. Two men an old one and a young one arrived from the gym next door, the well build young man was fondled by the older guy. Another guy joined them who was loud and agitated. They disappeared for a while then returned with what appeared to be drugs handed over in a small sachet by the well built guy. The older one and the agitated one headed to the toilets together. It is obviously a regular occurrence. The staff seemed to know them.
I would prefer to eat at a place in which respect is showed to the customers.

Bank holiday weekend on a Saturday night at 8.30pm and the restaurant had two tables in. We sat with almost no atmosphere sipping our drinks in an empty restaurant sadly. The service was helpful and the cocktails drinks we ordered were excellent. Starters were actually delicious, soft shell crab, calamari and a dish of scallops all cooked and flavoured differently. Our mains however were poor. We both ordered a curry, one red curry with fish and a green curry with sweet potato. Both were disappointing as both tasted the same and were to creamy and tasteless with very little love and thought but into these two dishes sadly. The last time I’d been was 5 years pervious but this visit was more than disappointing.

Pre theatre offer - great value of 3 courses for £25. Food excellent, service even better. Only criticism - drinks on the expensive side (but then we are in central London, theatre land!) and starter portion size was a bit disappointing (especially the chicken skewers). t However the service was excellent, efficient and informative but not intrusive. Would certainly recommend and return!

I did not realise that Asia de Cuba had gone until one hour before I went and I looked up the reviews. Very disappointed as I loved Asia de Cuba and went for a special occasion. We was the only people in the whole restaurant. On a Friday night is never a good sign is it. The waiter perched on a chair while taking our order (not very professional at all) and did not really know much about the menu. Food was disappointing. Such a shame as I had so many nice meals at Asia de Cuba. Would not recommend.
