An exciting gastronomic journey awaits at The Test Kitchen on Frith Street – an exciting year-long pop-up from a twice Michelin-awarded chef whose culinary journey has resulted in The Good Food Guide putting Adam on their ‘chefs to watch’ list. The Test Kitchen is exactly what it says on the tin - there is no set genre and the menu is a moveable feast that evolves and develops, based on guest feedback, in preparation for Adam’s first permanent London restaurant in 2018. Expect truly inventive cooking which reveals Adam’s incredible attention to detail and his passion for unusual and surprising flavour combinations. The Test Kitchen isn’t just a theatre for your tastebuds - the restaurant brings drama direct to the diner. Counter seating, overlooking the completely open plan kitchen, gives you full view of and direct access to Adam and his brigade - share four or five plates each whilst watching the culinary story unfold and debating dishes with The Test Kitchen team. The Pre-Theatre menu is served from 17.30pm - 18.45pm and the A la Carte menu from 18.45pm till close
The food here is extremely tasty. Being able to interact with the chefs (who are preparing the food in front of you) really adds to the whole experience. It's great to have them explain why everything is so delicious.
The food is good, no question. We ordered a tea which described itself as "single estate". I asked something about it (can't remember what) and they brought the tin. The tin was from a supplier to hotels and restaurants and it said absolutely nothing about "single estate". Not a big deal? Well, for a place that prides itself on authenticity, I think it is a big deal ... and of course the moral is don't believe 50% of what you read on menus.
We lived our dinner here.
The entire team were great hosts and great to talk to!
The food is delicious and reasonably priced for the quality offered here.
Just try as much as you can, share the plates, talk to the cooks and have a very interesting dinner experience different from any dinner you ever had!
One of my favourite restaurants in London. Amazing flavours, intricate food in a casual setting. Shame this is only a pop up have been 3 times and will go a few more times before the pop up ends. The chef is always around too in the restaurant and will have a little chat!
As to be expected with a test kitchen some of the dishes were oure genius and some were a bit of a flop. All in all we had a fantastic meal. The staff are super friendly and its fun watching the chefs cook in front of you. It did get heated on the pass at times which sort of soured the atmosphere but it soon picked.
