Tom’s Kitchen (Chelsea)

Share This:

Tom’s Kitchen has managed to extend its empire well across London, with branches in Somerset House, Canary Wharf, St Katharine Docks and even Istanbul – nearly verging on dreaded chains but retaining a more personal feel. The modern British brasserie (headed by the incredibly attractive Aikens brothers, situating them on my “Chef Crushes” list) is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of London.

The atmosphere and ambiance of all Tom’s Kitchen restaurants follow a similar pattern – open space, wooden tables, props inspired by its British roots – overall a very welcoming environment. They work with a number of British suppliers and are quite keen on having top-notch ingredients.

The Chelsea branch was by far the liveliest (and hence busiest), which made being silly over brunch much easier as you could just hide the bouts laughter in the background noise. The food is excellent – the eggs Benedict were poached well, all runny when broken, and the crispy, crunchy bacon was a nice take on the recipe. My eternal love for french toast was at last satisfied (it’s not all that easy finding this in restaurants) – with a big, tasty chunk, which we all shared and gobbled up in seconds.

Grade: Sainthood

    • Hi K,

      Sorry if you found the review to be somewhat confusing. I did mention that the food was excellent, but I do agree that the “Grade” I give reviews at the end are a bit obscure. I’m still working on the website so I hope to have a little button next to it explaining what I meant. I wanna keep a more original scale (Inferno > Purgatory > Sainthood > Apostle > Judas) rather than give it a numerical grade or stars, even if that makes it less understandable.

      But thanks for the comment I’ll try and work on the reviews being clearer 🙂
