Kiln Soho review
10/10
It was 30 degrees in London this weekend. As a Scottish person that’s just too hot for me, and for my ginger boyfriend it’s practically unbearable. So when I suggested going to Kiln, a fairly small restaurant with an open kitchen where they cook with fire, he wasn’t hugely keen. Over an Aperol spritz in a nearby bar, I worked on him telling him about their recent win as the UK’s best restaurant, the Thai grill concept, and how I reallllllly wanted to go, eventually breaking him down. And let me tell you, it was worth the persuading...

I decided to return to Kiln after an amazing meal at the upstairs counter with a friend last year. This year, I returned with a London local, who had Kiln on her list, my partner and a colleague. The food was delicious as always, with an affordable price. However, when we ordered another rice -- it took over 20 minutes to come and we were not able to enjoy our curry for it. In addition, in our 2 hours, our waiter only asked for drinks once. When we asked for another round, those never came either. Our waiter was very apologetic when we informed him of the wait times, and even went upstairs to grab rice himself. However, he seemed very overwhelmed downstairs and maybe didn't get the help he needed after putting in orders? Not sure of the 'why' but it made the experience quiet awkward and wanting more.

We were really happy to get a last minute reservation. The food was amazing but one of the main parts of our meal that we were the most excited to try never came... they are strict on reservation time slots and when we followed up with the waitress she said we could have the noodles but would need to move upstairs to the bar... we were dining with a stroller and an 11 month old, so naturally this was not convenient. We told her we would eat them quickly and we technically had 10 mins left before the next table would be seated. She “checked” with the kitchen and came back and told us it would take too long to get the dish and she would offer us two drinks instead.... again... we are with our baby... and weren’t looking to get sloshed... and we were hungry lol, so we said declines her offer and asked for the bill. She did remove two drink charges from our bill. As we were putting on our coats... the noodle dish suddenly appears... the server carrying the dish was surprised to see us leaving... she looked puzzled and said oh is this urs... I replied by saying we aren’t allowed to eat them and I see our waitress come around the corner signalling to the other server a “no” gesture and directing her upstairs. So i imagine she didn’t check in with the kitchen after all, and we could have enjoyed our noodles. (We had even offered to take them out and the waitress said they aren’t equipped for take out). Food was great, this service wasn’t.

Good food, but not amazing. The pork was completely flavourless and undercooked. The noodles were amazing.

Server was all very 'cool for school' and we felt like a bit like we were an annoyance and inconvenience. Food was amazing though.

Had a lovely experience. Sat at the bar watching the food being prepared and chatting to the head chef. Loved it.

The food is flavourful, and tastes just as divine as it looks (rare in some restaurants) although nothing you couldn't make yourself at home given the time and indulgence. There is little atmosphere due to a cramped basement dining room but they have put in decorative effort to make the room feel authentic in relation to the cuisine served. This also means it is not step free for wheelchair users. But, much like Ottelenghi's if you are happy to sit shoulder to shoulder with strangers and embrace the community feel then all's golden. No hot drinks served at all, which I found odd. Word of caution, do not visit on a tight budget! We were a party of four and our bill came in at just under £100 so not unreasonable at all.

Great evening but bit rushed to leave our table after 1 hour 45 minutes. Would have liked some dessert options. Overall good though.

Food was okay but small portions for the price. Waiter was hustling out before we were ready even though we still had 30 mins left on the table. Wouldn’t recommend.

We had a couple of veggies who felt the options for them particularly with the starters were quite limited. Otherwise great meal.
