I visited Dirty Bones High Street Ken with a friend for a catch up and we had a blast. The staff were really friendly as we arrived and continued to be attentive throughout our visit. As food lovers we couldn't decide what to eat so ordered quite a few dishes which we shared. We had the pork ribs, mac n cheese, lamb fries, truffle fries and cheeseburger gyozas - amazing. Everything was simply delicious. We finished the meal off with a few happy hour cocktails which were equally good. The service of all of the staff was to a high standard, very amiable with a good knowledge of the menu and when the next booking were due to take our table they kindly reserved us seats at the bar so we could seamlessly continue our evening. Great introduction to the Dirty Bones restaurants.
Great place, hidden away in Kensington.
American restaurant, food was delicious, I got the tacos with the crispy chicken which was unusual with great flavours.
The root beer was very authentic and the dirty chai was amazing.
Took my bf for his birthday as he didn't want anything too fancy and loves Burges but this place was really nice. Great atmosphere and vibrant and nice for a special occasion.
Staff were very friendly and good service too
The atmosphere was very chill, laid back and the staff was super accommodating and friendly. The old school hip hop was a nice added touch. We ordered a few things to share and everything was delicious. The fried chicken was the stand out. Probably the best fried chicken I’ve ever had. The cheeseburger was delicious as well as the cheese, truffle fries. Let’s not forget the cocktails, which were well crafted and made with care. I had the lavender martini, which was awesome. Very mild in flavor but with a nice kick of alcohol. I also ended the evening with a spiked ice coffee, which was also very good. Dirty Bones is a hip spot with excellent food. It should definitely be added to your list when in London.
Love this place, if you haven’t eaten fried chicken for a long time. Go eat it here, outstanding
Delicious food, great service
Amazing place with amazing food. You have to try lamb fries when you’re here. I would return again and again. Atmosphere is lovely and service is perfect. Perfect for a date night, friends get together or a quick meal
I would most definitely recommend dirty bones. The food was amazing with large portions. The ambience was relaxed and welcoming. I will be returning with friends and family.
Very good, great service and the best chicken burger I've ever had. So crispy!
Fab food and atmosphere made for a great night with live music thrown in !
It was amazing!! thank you for the perfect night out!!
Great no nonsense food. Great atmosphere. Fab evening.
Read reviews very good so though I’d give it a try
Enjoyed the evening
Nice waitress very patient and suggestions for food and dessert!
Would defo eat there again
Excellent food! The skirt steak was so delicious and my sister loved the chicken tacos so much that she got a second order!
Dirty Bones is a great restaurant, with an eclectic urban atmosphere and fantastic food. We had the buttermilk fried chicken; and chicken and waffles with maple syrup. The chicken was extra crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. The prices were fair and the service was very good. My only complaint would be it was a bit dark, more so than the usual dim restaurant, which made reading the menu a bit difficult. I will definitely be returning for another visit.
Fab food and atmosphere! Delicious cocktail (key lime pie) Would highly recommend a visit!!
The experience over all was excellent. The waiting staff were brilliant and helpful. However the restaurant did seem closed when we arrived, the shutter was part closed at the front and the door closed. Other than this we couldn’t fault our evening!
First time at Dirty Bones and we really enjoyed it. Funky music provides an upbeat background. Great service. The dining areas and bars are very well designed, feels cosy and rustic. Food was nice, we were all happy (three generations of us). Should be fun late night as the place really lends itself for a lively music filled night
Everything was great! Food is delicious.. I got the Vegan Mac Daddy and I’m still craving it now!
The food was excellent, cocktails amazing. The atmosphere was fantastic and the service was really good. And the price is good. Loved it and I would recommend this place 😁
I live this place for the atmosphere and the music , the speaker where we sat was not working or turned on so we could not hear the music. Not hearing the music changed the experience
I found this place on IG before visiting London for 4 days. So happy I was able to head there before I left for Paris the next morning. Its a chill vibe, great service and absolutely delicious food <3
A really good restaurant, really liked the atmosphere and ambience of this place. The food was good, I ordered a half pile of chicken which was tender, moist and juicy, Mac n cheese and skinny fries. My boyfriend had the burger which had a shot of espresso in the sauce - we both found this strange to taste and did not like this. The service was adequate, it was fairly quiet but service was prompt. Slightly overpriced but overall a good experience.
Our chicken was raw TWICE. And I mean properly raw, not just a bit pink. The service was exceptional and waitress did her best to rectify the situation. She kindly took the chicken off our bill. However, there were three of us, and after the chicken was removed from our bill, we had two drinks each, a starter of gyoza, sides of cauliflower and mac n cheese and the bill was still over £90... it’s seems a lot for 2 drinks and a couple of sides when the restaurant’s ‘specialty’ dish wasn’t even done to minimum food hygiene standards...
The food looks better than it taste. Cool place to visit and have a drink.
Exceeded my already high expectations. Great food and service!
Fab atmosphere, Great tunes, amazing food and very chilled. Will defo be back.
Love short ribs and truffle fries!
The service is extremely good, the manager of that day was very nice and patient, gave good advice for the food and make us feel very welcome and comfortable. it was a birthday dinner, we had such a good time, enjoyed every bit of it.
The only thin I didn't care for was that the server asked if we wanted water, we said yes.... not realizing he was adding bottled water to our bill...when the restaurant serves tap water for free
Great meal with family, the fish tacos were delicious and had lots of lovely cocktails.
Great food but service was a bit slow.
Service: food and drink took a while to reach us but the stuff was very polite and very professional we liked them enough to be patient.
Food: was nice needed some pepper on the mac and cheese but overall it was good. Wasn't keen on the taste of the Key Lime Pie cocktail but it looked awesome.
Music was loud but thank goodness the Dj was blasting some good music.
Will be going back for sure!
