Art St Kitchen within DoubleTree by Hilton, Westminster
Last Friday my best friend and I visited Art St Kitchen to review on behalf of Luxuria Lifestyle.
Located 11 minutes away from Pimlico underground (walking distance) is Art St Kitchen, within the DoubleTree by Hilton, Westminster.
We were warmly welcomed upon our arrival and given a choice of seating. The restaurant had a cosy, but clean modern feel. The artistic décor is inspired by the local diverse culture, and creates an international eclectic feel. The menu is inspired by dishes around the globe and are all small plates, so it’s recommended that you order a few per person (although I think we ordered one or two dishes over!). The service was friendly and quite laid back, which added to the relaxing atmosphere.
We were seated and ordered some mixed olives and quite a few different dishes including:
Halloumi Chips with salsa which were perfectly cooked and the salsa was cool and refreshing, complementing the salty cheese well.(these were my favourite part of the meal).
Flamed Mackerel which was very flavoursome
Fried squid with lemon aioli, tender with a pleasant crispiness of the flour
Pan Fried Hake with Paprika Hollandaise
Lamb Kofte with tzatziki, chickpeas and tomato
Flat Iron Steak which was tasty but did not come with Mushrooms & Salsa Verde as advertised, instead it came with baby leaf spinach and fries
Ale-battered Cod Sliders, (Fish Fingers in buns)
Buffalo Mozerella with Sun-dried Tomatoes
Perfectly seasoned Fries
Smoked Aubergine Mezze with Flatbread
The food was mostly full of flavour, presented really well and we thoroughly enjoyed it, even if we did order a bit too much we still finished almost all of it! My only bit of constructive feedback would be the flatbread and rolls with the cod sliders were a bit hard and it took longer than we expected to be served and for the food to arrive, however this would not put me off coming back as I’m a massive fan of lots of small dishes and loved the variety! Also I would like to mention the service we received from Flavio was very impressive.
For dessert I ordered a Choux pastry filled with hazelnut praline, which was sweet and delicious, we were content and full at the end of our meal and I would recommend visiting Art St Kitchen for the variety of different European dishes they offer.
For those looking for a grab-and-go meal, Art St Kitchen also has its own express service, for those looking to get hold of a quick lunch time meal to sit in or takeaway.
Thank you for having us!
