Tasting menu was good but not consistent, shame there was no flight of wines to accompany the menu. Went in the last week, a shame I hadn't discovered it before.

Simply splendid. Faultless a la carte selection in both taste and presentation. Not cheap but then where is at this quality in London.

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal

Tom Aikens Restaurant first opened its doors in May 2003 to critical acclaim owing to Tom’s innovative style and creative interpretation of modern French cuisine. In January 2012 the Chelsea restaurant re-opened the move towards a more informal style of fine dining and interior refurbishment. Tom Aikens Restaurant upholds the culinary excellence found in like-minded restaurants in a refreshingly relaxed setting with friendly and knowledgeable service.In October 2012, the restaurant was delighted to learn that it was awarded 1 Michelin star for the 2013 Great Britain and Ireland guide and 5 AA Rosettes.
