Indian
KUTIR, meaning ‘COTTAGE’ in Sanskrit, draws inspiration from the royal tradition of hunting expedition in the luscious forests and jungles of the Indian countryside. The food is representative of the feasting-style, convivial and celebratory dining that occurs on these retreats.

Every single thing about our booking was perfect. Each and every member of staff was so attentive and helpful. The food was amazing and we’ll most definitely be coming back. From the lady at the door to the bartender and waiters, you will have a great experience. Now my favourite Indian restaurant in London.

I really enjoyed Kutir. The food was excellent, service was friendly, efficient, and professional. The location was darling but definitely not a “buzzy” atmosphere which really works with you are not in the mood for a noisy, busy restaurant. I would definitely go back!

Wonderfully tasty food (except for the lamb). Service was very patchy. I was by myself for 30mins and I was mostly ignored with my starter thumped on the table with little introduction which changed when my friend arrived.

The restaurant was full of people but the noise was absolutly silence, at the begining we met the rapresentative of the restaurant and she took our jacket after showing us our table. The enviroment and the relax feeling during the dinner gives you a feeling that you are in india. The waiter was amazing his name is Alex and gave us the best service we could get. For us it was really special we had the plasure to meet the Chef that did all the otentic delisious food.
Thank you all so much and of course we will sughest this restaurant to frieds and hopfully will book a table again soon!

Whilst The chef Rohit Ghai is a great chef, I went when he was not there.
The flavours werea bit flat. The Dal at Bombay Bustle for example was light years ahead.
The rice to accompany the fish was a non fussy steamed rice. The Naan came with the only the plain option.

I wish them a speedy improvement.

This was the best Indian food we've ever had. (And we've had a lot). Inventive and modern without being fussy or heavy-handed. Unbelievably delicious. Not to mention a gorgeous intimate environment with superb service. Wanting to book a flight back to London ASAP just to eat here again.

We loved our dinner at Kutir. The food was delicious and we felt very well looked after. The ambience is fancy but still relaxed. A great experience overall and we can highly recommend the Neelamber cocktail.

I’ve reviewed on Tripadvisor and can’t be bothered to do it again. But it was really great. Especially the tandoori salmon which was to die for. Wonderful!

The first 'upmarket' Indian cuisine we have tried in a while. Excellent food, pleasant surroundings and attentive service. It was quite noisy at times due to one group, but it wasn't a problem. Reasonable value. Looking forward to going back.

lovely food in a nice setting, beautifully decorated and authentic. A very busy saturday night so a bit noisy. The private room was small but OK - not quite big enough for groups who want to mingle beforehand. The room was a bit cold. Didn't mention it as by the time it became noticeable it was time to leave.

Would highly recommend this restaurant the food was exceptional and the setting and ambience was perfect. Set in a Chelsea townhouse it makes your dining experience that more special.

My only criticism would be that we would of liked the table for a little longer as we didn’t realise there is a 2 hour sitting rule for tables of 1-4 and myself and my friends don’t like to feel rushed. However we would definitely return to sample more dishes on the menu.

Unfortunately the party of 6 dinners next to our table was not only loud but used extremely foul language which spoiled part of our dining experience at Kutir. However, the manager did talk to the dinners who refused to “tone down” their conversation. The other table nearby complained as well but no results.
Immaculate food and excellent service but dinners with no manners are something the restaurant can’t control.

I brought my mum here on Saturday to celebrate my recent engagement. We both had the tasting menu and it was amazing. Our waiter, Azim, was amazing! Really intuitive, kind and didn't try to upsell (which I hate!). Each course was delicious and had some interesting flavours. The 'main' course of Seabass curry was sensational! We also received a complimentary chocolate dessert with "congratulations" piped on the plate which was lovely. I really enjoyed the townhouse cosy feel, despite some of our fellow diners one of whom was on his phone right next to us and a couple who clearly could not wait until they got home to express their desire for one another. Nothing to do with the restaurant. So why only 4 stars? Our lovely experience was unfortunately very abruptly ended. Our waiter came over to ask if we wanted a coffee, to which we asked if we had time, very aware of the 2hr table limit (they had subsequently asked the over-zealous couple to leave as it was past their 2 hr slot). He said yes he thought so. No sooner had the coffee arrived and I had asked for the bill that our coats were delivered and we were ushered out of the building promptly to be left on the street in the rain. I want to state that I fully understand and respect the 2hr limit on tables at these fine dining establishments and in fact promote them. However, to usher your diners out into the rain is really unacceptable and really did ruin a perfectly brilliant experience. My advice is to create a reception bar somewhere where patrons can finish their coffee and petit fours in peace and leave at their own pace.
