Tom's Kitchen - Chelsea Ratings and Reviews
booked a table for 4 on arrival we were told that they only had a table of two and this was always happening with Open Table as they had to input the number of diners manually and would we like to go find somewhere else? When we said no we were asked if we would like to take a seat at the bar while they tried to sort something out and someone would get us a drink - we sat down - no one came to take a drinks order - we did however notice the cobwebs on the soup bowls on the shelf above the area we were seated in - within 5 minutes however a group of diners left and a table was available for us. Still no one came to take a drinks order when the manageress who was very pleasant came across she did organise a drinks order quickly - we were told one of the specials was off and so proceeded to check the menu out and wait for someone to take the food order when they eventually did another of the specials was also gone meaning one diner had to review their menu order very quickly - it felt like we had to attract someone's attention anytime anything was needed and the restaurant really wasn't that busy. The food was quite good and no one had any complaints at all. We were obviously the last diners to order our food (and we would probably have been even later if we hadn't asked to order ourselves) so it was no surprise we were the last diners in there however the staff all putting their coats on and turning the lights on and off wasn't quite the ticket - it wasn't that late and we were pretty much done anyway, would we go again? possibly but there are lots of places to choose from so you wouldn't necessarily rush back, would we recommend it? Possibly but again lots of other choice out there maybe they were just having a hiccup sort of night?
I do not recommend this restaurant. Went there this past Thursday waited 40 min for the main courses and the waiter said he had forgotten to type our orders in. They gave us our starter for free. But something was not fresh because my Bf and I were both sick when we left.
Really disappointing as I came here once and thought it was good. But this second time experience really puts me off. First, they mess up our booking, saying that I have booked for Saturday instead of Sunday, but my opentable confirmation shows that we have booked for Sunday. (The worse is they had called me to double confirm the booking the day before). Secondly, they took a long time to bring the food. Drinks didn't even come when food arrived. I have to repeatedly remind them for the drinks. The worse is their toilets, really need to clean it up and do something about it. It smells damp and full of water on the floor. It was pretty disgusting. For the location and the price they charge, they definitely need to do something about it!
Tom's Kitchen is a local fave, we frequently dine here on a Sunday. The service is great, staff are attentive and polite, the food is always pleases (Sunday roast with the lot and the truffle mac and cheese are amazing!!). The juices are also fresh and the pricing of it all is very reasonable for Chelsea.
We went for a late lunch on a weekday, so the place was quite calm, but it was really nice. I liked the interior a lot, there's a lot of light. The staff was very friendly, we had an outstanding service. The food was pretty good, perfect for a nice lunch! I will be going back :)
Excellent lazy weekend brunch location. Delicious food (the brioche french toast is highly recommended) and lovely coffee. Had a table of 4 for 2 people on a Saturday morning and stayed for a good 2-3 hours before they needed the table back. (Not to say it doesn't get busy on weekends!) Would suggest booking ahead but great dining experience with friendly, efficient service and different brunch options. Will be returning soon!
Table of 5 for Mothers' Day lunch. By 3.30pm we were told they had run out of Sunday roast option because they were "too busy". This was bad enough, but later in the meal they had also "run out of" triple cooked chips, ie potatoes. We were only told this when we were served French fries (presumably from a packet) with our main courses. Service was so slow that when we finally got the waiter to clear out starter plates he actually offered us dessert menus without realising we hadn't had main courses. One of the main courses had to be sent back because the chicken was very obviously undercooked. No matter how much we were offered by way of reduction on our bill (and we were) we wouldn't go back. Restaurants know how many covers they are likely to have especially on a day like Mothers' Day, so to run out of things as basic as roast beef and potatoes is totally unacceptable.
Party of 3 for a fairly early dinner. Restaurant was fairly empty at 6.30pm, but started filling up shortly after. Food was of a very high standard for all three courses and reasonably priced considering the area. Good, friendly service, without being intrusive.
Bad service. I had a full English the toast and beans were cold. My daughter had eggs Benedict and the muffins were burnt. The waitress gave us the impression she didn't really want to be there. Very disappointing we were really looking forward to a nice experience. I'm very surprised Tom Aiken is happy to have his name on the eatery!!
Went there on a saturday evening, not mega busy but still decent crowds and good atmosphere all around. We ordered scallops and spicy crab cakes as starters, they were both perfectly cooked. If I had to be picky, I'd say the spicy crab cakes can be a little spicier but that's just personal preference. For the main course, we had mussels and fries - no complaints there. The mussels were really nicely cooked, not chewy or anything at all. Onto the desserts, personally i think they were highlights of the whole meal, I ordered caramel and milk chocolate tart served with peanut butter and hazelnut ice-cream and my friend had pear and berries crumble, originally served with sour cream ice cream but we asked to swap it with the same ice cream as mine.
Overall the food was really good and the service was attentive, our server was very warm and charming. One thing to add, they do a good espresso martini too. It's not on the menu, you've to ask for it. I'd recommend anyone to this restaurant for a nice smart casual kind of evening. We are going back in a few weeks time for Sunday brunch, that shows how much we enjoyed the place.
I discovered Toms Kitchen through a blogger I follow so I went with 6 friends for my birthday, it was just wonderful. The food was incredible, the Eggs Benedict was hands down the best in London. You can always tell if somewhere is going to be good when its busy at 10.30am on a Saturday morning! Everyones meals were fabulous, the cinnamon french toast was an absolute treat aswell, it came with cooked cinnamon apples and a gorgeous sweet cinnamon cream on top! You have to try it!
it was great time to have a dinner
at toms kitchen.
very delicious, good service and reasonable price
but the only not good thing is the location.
it's not easy to go there...
but it can be a good side because it's not crowded.
i recommend tom's kitchen Chelsea!!!
I have been going to Tom's Kitchen since 2007, and recently they have changed the menu. The breakfast menu has fewer options in comparison to before. However, my boyfriend and I were content with the quality and taste of our breakfast (French Toast and Truffle Benedict). The only thing that can be approved is the service as it was slightly slower than it should be.
Festive Brunch menu - Eggs Royale and Berry Pancake both delicious. Food prices reasonable, drinks a little pricey. Service quite variable depending on who came to the table and what you order. Drinks slower than food, which led to food arriving after drinks despite drinks being ordered first. But, overall a pleasant environment with good quality food
WE booked Toms Kitchen having read great reviews about the Restaurant. We are London based, but were planning a day out in and around Chelsea during the Christmas holidays. We arrived ahead of our booking, and the staff were very pleasant and accommodating seating us early.
The service was attentive and good.
The food arrived quickly and the quality was fantastic.
Not a bad word to say.
Met some friends for brunch last week, the restaurant is large and airy with lots of natural light. The servers were polite and attentive, the juices are freshly squeezed and plentiful and the food is delicious! Will definitely come back for another breakfast.
Following a brilliant first visit here a year ago, we decided to follow up with a repeat this year. Sadly, it was disappointing. None of the starters really appealed, so we went straight to mains. Sadly again, they had run out of fillet steak (by 8.30 pm), so it was second choice. Chips were great, and my daughter enjoyed her burger. Puddings looked yummy, especially the chocolate fondant from the Specials board. However, when I ordered it, I was told it was actually chocolate and peanut fondant, which I didn't want. There was already a chocolate and peanut tart on the main pudding menu. Why add nuts to both chocolate options? The worst part of the evening was the service. One waitress was distinctly less than friendly, and when we asked for forks to eat our pudding (a tart) with, she plonked them down on the table with a look to match. Other staff were more friendly, but we were left with a poor impression. Very noisy, but that's to be expected. Not the joyous experience we had hoped for.
Having made a reservation on OpenT and having called the restaurant directly to confirm our reservation, we arrived to puzzled faces on the Hostess and made to feel like we were inconveniencing them.
Food was just ok, and despite the celebrity Chef who owns this chain of city eateries, it would seem like his skill set and enthusiasm has not spread to anyone else in the brigade behind the tiles.
Don't make the mistake in thinking this restaurant has anything to do with renowned Michelin-starred chef Tom Kitchin. This chain is owned by Tom Aikens.
I won't go back - this visit was more than enough.
