We were made extremely welcome and there was no hesitation when we informed the staff that two of our party were running a little late. Daphne’s deserves its reputation and the restaurant was very busy. However the doors were open giving a delightful airy feel and service and food along with the tremendous staff were faultless More

Italian | South Kensington, South West London

Excellent place for a drink and a nice atmosphere. There was a special offer on the Monday so the wine was at off-licence price! My only criticism was for the Avo- cetta which was unexciting and bread too thick. Otherwise recommended More

Lovely afternoon tea for a baby shower. We were upgraded to a private room, which was really thoughtful. The Mary Quant tea was lovely - lots of thoughtful touches and details, including an edible lipstick and raspberry sauce presented in a nail polish. More

International | South Kensington, South West London

Great place to have a business lunch in the area. You will get a variety of mains with at least three types of meats and fish, not often you can find such diversity in the menu. Sides are especially good and work as starters as well. Plenty of vegetarian options. Coconut Lavender mocktail was just wonderful, so refreshing! Also tried caramel cheesecake which was served with berry’s sorbet, neat and delicious. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very calm, and you can talk without extra effort hear and to be heard since the place is spacious and is a bit hidden to the side from the lobby area. To add, there’s a garden space too. More

We had a great time there, we had a birthday party and they took care of all our requests, service and food was amazing. I would recommend this place if you're looking to enjoy a fun and crazy weekend, to be honest is an expensive cocktail bar but its definitely worth it considering location, people and ambience. More

Modern European | South Kensington, South West London

Had never been there before and booked our reservation online a few days previously. The waitress who greeted us was friendly and efficient without being overbearing or pushy. We ordered drinks and after a few minutes ordered our food. I was expecting a wait of around 15-20 minutes, but the food arrived within 5-6 minutes, which was a pleasant surprise. The food itself was excellent and a decent portion which made a nice change from the meagre portions I have sometimes experienced in other establishments. Price wise, it was perhaps a bit more expensive than I am used to in rural Shropshire, but probably standard for a major city. I would definitely recommend MK Bar and Grill to anyone visiting the area and I'm sure that they would enjoy it as much as I did. More

Much smaller and with amore cosy ambience than other so the Thai Square group, the South Kensington branch has a similar menu and the night we were there the food was fine. There is also an upstairs room, with a similar small footprint to the downstairs, but not as cosy. More
