It was, to many, the main event of the two part restaurant from James Knappett and Sandia Chang. Here you can expect a new meal almost every visit as the menu evolves depending on the chef's preferences and the seasons. And all this in a setting that sees you seated around the open kitchen watching and interacting with the chefs.

"This should be a restaurant you want to go back to because that’s the highest accolade for a kitchen, and you don’t want to eat here again, you don’t want to eat here twice. It’s a tiresome event, it’s an anecdote, it’s the triumph of form over hospitality." READ REVIEW

"Reading my notes about the lamb, I let out an involuntary 'Oh my goodness!' This was stunning – sweetbreads with braised cabbage, and that was lovely enough, but what stood out was an incredibly cunning use of black pepper. Don't ask me how, but they'd brought it to the very centre of the piece, without any unpleasant kick, so that it was like experiencing it for the first time." READ REVIEW

"Kitchen Table is a great addition to not only Bubbledogs, but the capital's dining scene as a whole. If you can get a table, do so." READ REVIEW

"When he and Chang get a place with actual tables, I'll be biting off hands for a booking. His cooking and her charm are a potent combination... But until then, divine cooking or not, I'm out." READ REVIEW

"The fact is that the event (you can’t call it a meal) lacked syncopation and sufficient rigour. This will doubtless come with time." READ REVIEW

On a recent visit from NYC my wife & I had the pleasure of dining at the Kithchen Table upon recomendation from a brilliant NYC Chef/friend in the buisness.I was not disappointed to say the least.The food was on par with any Chef's table I have dined at in NYC & Europe. The food was delicious,creative & visually appealing. The service was warm & professional & I will gladly return upon my next visit to London. That is if I can be accomdated because I believe this place is going to be impossible to get into in the near future. Best of luck to the charming owners. Cheers
