Diner Reviews
  • "I always like coming to Michael Nadra, the food is great, and the service pleasant. This time we did the tasting menu together with a wine flight, and rolled out at the end of the evening. :) good stuff!"
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "We had a great meal here on Saturday night. Food was excellent and overall would definitely recommend."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Nice food although more rustic than gourmet. Tables are pretty packed in. A viable option for something different but a notch below chiswick's better restaurants"
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "It was a pleasure to dine here, excellent food beautifully presented, and great service. A notable point that we were both very happy about and remarked on at the time was that we were not asked even once "is everything ok" what a lovely change from almost all other restaurants."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "I was recommended Michael Nadra by a work colleague as a great place to take my mum for Mother's Day and was not disappointed! The restaurant appearance is pristine and the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful, it is not a large restaurant so has a lovely family or special occasion atmosphere. The 4 course set Mother's Day menu for us was perfect but I could see it as restricting for others, I would have liked to have had two choices of each course rather than just a choice of duck or sea bass for the main course only, saying that the Sea Bass was divine! I will definitely return to sample more of their menu on offer and would recommend the restaurant to anyone who enjoys great value, well presented and exquisitely tasting food."
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "The food, wine and service at this restaurant is excellent. Great choice of dishes,expertly created, full of flavours. Fantastic wine list and very attentive waiting staff. We will be back!"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Not withstanding that the food was exceptional and the quality of presentation is very high, the waiter we had was very wooden and seemed not to be interested in service. Shame because this would have made the entire experience special. He rushed around , didn't make the menu sound exciting ( and it was). Had to be prompted when he hadn't taken our wine order. The wine was pricey so I asked for the Michael Nadra house white ( £18) but it was sold out! He offered an alternative but was a different variety and £36 ! So in summary, great food, sloppy service, wine detail that needs sharpening up!"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Great meal! Foie gras was exceptional as was the lamb. My friend was a vegetarian and although options were limited, she enjoyed both her courses. Highly recommend!"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "The Special Offer Tasting Menu is very good value, and with the matched wines it makes an excellent gourmet experience. To get this offer you have to eat early, when the restaurant is quite empty, but it soon fills up and the ambience becomes very congenial. Service is also extremely good."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "I keep going back to Michael Nadra because it offers excellent food. It's a real gem in my neighbourhood!"
    dined on 17/03/2014
  • "First time to this restaurant. The food and service were of a very high quality and particularly enjoyed the beef. The atmosphere is lively so not necessarily right for a quiet romantic meal but I prefer a nice buzz to a restaurant and so it suited us. Definitely will go back for the tasting menu."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Michael Nadra served possibly the best food that my partner and I have had in the last 10 years. The quality of the food - particularly the fish main courses - was exceptional, the sizing of the portions just right, and the presentation unfussy. A genuinely wonderful eating experience and, at £25 for a three-course lunch, outstanding value. Discrete but attentive service all added to the occasion."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Although a local restaurant the food is certainly not. It is busy but the staff are always attentive ensuring that their delicious homemade bread was always on our plates.. We started with the salmon ceviche which was a little over-oily for my taste but the flavour was superb. My partner had the tempura soft-shelled crab with a sweet chilli sauce; we shared this - absolutely delicious. We both chose fish: the hake was melt-in-the-mouth and so flavourful, served with a creamy sauce. The brill too was perfectly cooked. We had the only Sancerre on the wine list which complemented the food perfectly. Sadly we were too full for pudding! An excellent visit yet again - we have never been disappointed at Michael Nadra's."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "We had a extraordinary dinner from the entree, main plate to the desserts and wines. Whatever you choose you can't go wrong everything was delicious."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "We went to this restaurant for a small family 18th birthday celebration, having never been here before. We had a lovely evening and were well looked after from the moment we stepped through the door. The food was superb! The service excellent, with the waiter happy to discuss the menu to those who needed guidance. All in all a memorable evening."
    dined on 12/03/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Michael Nadra. We were celebrating my birthday and the restaurant was a perfect choice : small and friendly, but attentive and professional service, with great food. We were seated at a lovely table in the window, and the atmosphere was pleasantly relaxed. We arrived at 7.30 as had our 12 year old daughter in tow, but were pleased to see that some of the tables were already taken, which is a good sign for a Thursday night. I can understand why its popular - the menu was great and the food lived up to expectations. Will definitely be back."
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "We went to Michael Nadra for the first time on Saturday and were really impressed with the food and service. The food was exceptional - definitely up with there the best restaurants in the area - we will definitely be going back. My only slight criticism is that the acoustics can be bad if the restaurant is full, or if you have a large table near you."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "This is a food lovers destination where great care is taken over ingredients, the balance of flavours and presentation. We travel serious distances for a Michelin 3 star or a great new young Chef yet to make his mark in the guides. This is clearly Michelin 1-2 star food in anyones book. Had lunch for two in mid March 2014 and had a stunning gastronomical experience: after a succulent Amuse Bouche of Truffled Mash with a piece of Shoulder of Lamb, both of us started with Ballotine of Guinea Fowl which was right up there with the best. Mains were a Lassagne of Mushroom which my wife judged was perfection. My main dish was Hake which looked and tasted out of this world. This is a strong Kitchen and while you will wait a little its worth it."
    dined on 11/03/2014
  • "Menu was ok, service ok, ambience ok. But a little too expensive to be just ok considering the competition in the area."
    dined on 19/11/2013
  • "Just off the main street, the restaurant was tucked away, we thought it looked empty but when we opened the door it was full. It is a cozy space, pretty private. The food was delicious, we had the signature soft shell crab which was one of the most delicate I have eaten in London. I had the sea bass which was light and had a delicious sauce, oriental style, my husband had Hake and said it was great, a real compliment from someone who eats fish possibly once a year. Service was perfect, we had water and wine within 10 minutes of walking in. A great experience with delicious food."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "The food the three of us had was uniformly excellent, cooked to perfection. The only gripe was the high prices of the, admittedly tasty, aperitifs."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "We were looking forward going out to the restaurant based on the reviews read, we won't go back. Very busy which shows it is popular but then very noisy restaurant where you feel you sit on top of each other. it took us 1h15 to get our main course..fish for both which was overcooked, after such a wait, we were not happy. .so when suggested to have another one, we were not up for waiting another hour with a headache. Service : lots of people running around and not making a point in informing customers of the state of their order. We finished the evening for dessert at the Chiswick brasserie:better service and ambiance. Some reviewers have mentioned it deserves a Michelin star, well not in my book.Maybe lunch would be better and better value."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "The window table we had was great, slightly away from the room. It was very noisy elsewhere. The food was fantastic. We all really enjoyed the dishes we chose. It was perfect for my birthday celebration, but it was a lot more expensive than our usual dining."
    dined on 03/03/2014
  • "Selfishly, I'm glad that the restaurant is never as full as my husband and I think it deserves to be, otherwise we'd find it hard to get a table when we want one! (Having said that, it was completely full when we went last night and the very small kitchen seemed to manage very well, with no long wait for our food). The food is delicious, inventive without being outlandish and far better than other more celebrated restaurants in Chiswick. Service is charming and efficient. The only letdown is the slightly gloomy decor."
    dined on 03/03/2014
  • "Food was amazing, and wine list great. Service veered a bit too much towards the napkin waving, and tables VERY close together but when you've got a mouthful of the best steak/ lamb/ guinea fowl ballotine you don't really care"
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "Will stick to the facts: Bread basket: elegant selection, bad execution (more like Polish bread with olives and rosemary). Appetisers of crab with a sweet-ish sauce, very presentable and tasty.Duck and fish course: beautifully executed, and presented very quickly to us. Desserts: rather disappointing; tarte tatin practically uncooked, chocolate dessert disproportionately small to the other desserts, sticky date pudding far too light (body and flavour-wise) for what we anticipated. Service: Maitre d' offered good wines by the glass (that were not in the list), we then had a little "incident" (overfamiliarity with customers is not appropriate with all customers...) but he apologised. Verdict:Plenty of similar/ better restaurants in Chiswick."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "I have been here a couple of times and would certainly go back again and I do regualrly recommend it to friends and family who have equally good things to say about it. The staff are so friendly and always happy to help and very attentive."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "Second time dining at Restaurant Michael Nadra and as with my first visit, the food and service were exceptional. Visited on this occasion for a business lunch, the restaurant offers outstanding value for a lunch menu and their service levels hit the same levels as my previous weekend dinner visit. Highly recommended."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "Really special Chocolate Fondant with delicious salted caramel. All our mains were gorgeous in presentation and even better to taste. Great experience."
    dined on 02/02/2014
  • "Excellent as usual, but sadly a noisy guest at an ajoining table made this visit less enjoyable. But we will return."
    dined on 09/01/2014
  • "Eaten here 2 or 3 times and the food has always been excellent. This time it was my wife's birthday and even though the 3 of us ate early at 7.15 (which is sometimes a problem in restaurants because the kitchen is not at full swing) the food was exceptional. The fish dishes including Hake which you don't often see on menus was outstanding. I would heartily recommend it."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Not my first visit, but definitely not my last either! The tempura soft shell crab actually looked like a crab for some wonderful presentational impact, and the meat inside was perfectly cooked. I also (unusually) went for the veggie lasagne which is unlike me, and although delicious, did miss the meaty hit I am used to. But this place is great!!"
    dined on 19/02/2014
  • "I booked Michael Nadra for my wife's birthday. The menu is varied and very tasty. The staff were knowledgeable and attentive. Whilst it wasn't on the evening that we went, I imagine the dining room can become a little cramped, and so I would ask for a window table if available. Overall, a delicious meal and a great quality for the price point."
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "It is a tiny restaurant and we felt a alittle squashed in, but the food was great, the menu was quite varied and the presntation as well as the taste were very good. The service was excellent. The scallops were fantastic! I went out for dinner with my sister and parents and everyone was very happy with their meal, we did a set menu offer, whch was very reasonably priced c. £26 for 3 courses. I would definitely recommend it to others. Great place to have a relaxed dinner."
    dined on 10/08/2013
  • "I needed to move the table back an hour as it was a romantic meal to celebrate our anniversary and my wife is always late, and this was no problem at all, we had a warm welcome and our waiter was attentive and friendly, I thought the 2 or 3 course a la carte menu was excellent value for money. the soft shell crab starter was great and my steak sublime. It ranks among the best value high quality food i have had. Ive paid more per head in a Cafe Rouge so will definitely be back"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "Quite disappointing and pricey.foid wasn't great and we got rushed through.woukd not go back"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "When the amuse bouche with cauliflower came my mum couldn't eat it so they changed it promptly, the crab starter was divine, the steak duck and foie gras was amazing and the tartatin was big and the chocolate fondant very dark. Thje summum was tht they had warmed up our coats!"
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "First time for me although I don't know why I have not been before! First class menu sensibly priced and great choice even had gluten free bread for my girlfriend! I like to support the independent restaurants well done! I will certainly be back"
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "The menu offers a wide choice of very interesting dishes. At £25 for 3 courses of top class cooking it was excellent value for money and very good service too."
    dined on 27/01/2014
  • "As always, Michael Nadra never disappoints, fantastic value for the quality of cuisine. My sole very minor grumble is it would be nice to see the menu change somewhat rather than the "variation on a theme" alterations which don't do all that much to provide variety. Still live both establishments though, time to try the burger menu methinks."
