Kew Grill restaurant is a splendid eatery on the Kew Green in London's Richmond that's right opposite Kew Gardens. This charming spot oozes relaxed glamour and confidence. Kew Grill belongs to celebrity chef Antony Worrall-Thompson, who has created an irresistible British menu that uses the best and freshest ingredients. With a rustic earth-toned dining room kitted out with exposed brick wall, blond wooden floor and comfortable leather chairs, the Kew Grill is a place chic carnivores come to relax and enjoy simple, unpretentious food. Star dishes include the crisp-spiced soft shelled crab on a Thai red curry sauce; the fillet steak with skinny chips and Roquefort butter; and the famous AWT burger made with 35-day hung Scottish beef. Kew Grill is perfect for business lunches, cocktails and unfussy dates as it's built an enviable reputation for excellent food that's beautifully presented. It's no surprise that 'Real food for real people' is the motto here.

We were looking forward to returning to the Kew Grill but were disappointed by the food. The soup seemed like it had been microwaved, my husband had to send back his steak which was overcooked and when he did, we had to ask for his side dish again and having asked for no salt on chips, they were covered in salt.

The manager dealt with the issues very well but for the price, we don't expect these issues as it spoilt the occasion.

The Chateubriand was sensational, so rare I thought I head it moo when I cut into it. Highly recommend the Primotivo to accompany also, had the creamed spinach and bacon greens. We all shared a selection of fries between us, it was nice! My colleagues had the Wagyu burger and the Fillet Steak, they said it was nice too

An excellent meal. First time with hanger steak, may be better a little more than medium rare.But, very tasty. Good wine and excellent service. Two large parties made it a bit noisy and a little difficult to converse.

Surely a strong contender for best steak house in London... but much cheaper than rivals of similar quality.

A warm and friendly welcome with nothing being too much trouble.

The steaks and sides were superb and cooked to perfection. The selection of steaks on offer is impressive - something for every appetite.

I will go again... often.

I have been before and loved it then, and did again this time.

Great food, ambience and a excellent twist on crab in my 3-way crab starter.

The rose wine was superb and crisp.

My friend and work colleague also loved it, and will definitely go back.

Thank you.

We had been looking forward to our meal as some years back I had visited an AWT restaurant in Windsor and really enjoyed the food. However, I thought our meal was disappointing - chunks of pork scratching rather than thin manageable strips; tempura batter that was heavy and thick and my friends vegetables with her duck were uninspiring. On the positive side, my steak was really gorgeous and full of flavour, as well as perfectly cooked. The service was also good.

We first visited the Kew Grill two years ago and enjoyed the meal so much we visited again on our anniversary while we were staying in Kew. Again, we had an exceptional meal on Saturday night although the restaurant was very busy. We went back again on Sunday evening, which was much quieter. We would certainly go again whenever we are staying in Kew.

We enjoyed an excellent evening meal here. All three courses were freshly cooked and there was good choice of sides. The nibbles of pitta and hummus is delicious. Steak rib was cooked to perfection and so was the slow cook pork belly with crunchy crackling. Only disappointment was no vanilla ice cream - still mango sorbet and chocolate made up for it!

Been here a few times and usually a good standard but this time the fillet steak was tasteless and more like a rib eye in texture, not what you expect with a fillet. My colleagues food was great so hence the OK review... could do better next time Kew Grill

The food was disappointingly mediocre. For my main course my fries with my burger were a bit burnt and limp. My friend's starter of the chilli squid was massively underwhelming. There didn't appear to be much squid and it came with a weird salad that I could have put together in 60s. My starter was ok except that on top of my mackerel pate the chef had caramelised a layer of sugar to give the effect of a creme brûlée-the problem is that to get to the pate one has to break the caramel layer and this then contaminates the pate. Not nice.

The starter was OK but the main was not good at all. I had the swordfish. It was very salty and I found a plastic on it (either this is from the fish - which means we need to save the oceans or the kitchen overlooked or missed it, it was not good).
