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.

Very expensive for an average meal. We used to enjoy the Kew Grill a great deal and it was our go-to restaurant for great steak. However having not been for a few years, we were very disappointed this time. Whilst the steaks are still nice, the rest of the food was very average/poor. Standards, service and decor have all slipped. There are too many other good steak restaurants around to warrant a visit back.

This was a nice, quaint bistro style place with generally nice food but nothing I would rate as particularly special.
My main complaint would be that the place is very cold (I assume esp in winter) which does ruin a cozy meal.
I would also say that the fries were over-cooked and feel like they were re-heated/fried - I complaint I read from a previous review.
Overall, nice food, quite expensive, but not somewhere I would rush to go back to.

Visited Kew Grill for an early sitting (5.30pm) last Saturday before attending Christmas at Kew. The restaurant was quiet but soon filled up. Food was very good - started with scallops and then ordered the fillet steak. Steak was cooked to my liking and was very good- comparable to other big name steak restaurants. Overall, I hope to visit again.

We've been to the Kew Grill every year for the past 4 or 5 years when we go to Christmas at Kew. The food and service never disappoint. This year I was diagnosed with coeliac disease and so was quite concerned about gluten free options, but they couldn't have been more helpful. One particul;ar dish that I fancied (devilled kidneys) is not gluten free but the chef changed the ingredients to make a tasty dish that was suitable for me. How I wish other restaurants were so easy to deal with!

Consistently delivers THE BEST steak you’ll ever have.
I absolutely love going to Kew Grill, went here Saturday to celebrate my birthday with some good friends who share same views.
I’ve said before - it’s not the cheapest place you’ll ever go; but the trade off is fantastic food, brilliant service and excellent wines.

A big mention for the sides we had with Wagyu fat chips being absolutely superb. The steaks are pure class and my rib chop was simply quality

I really enjoyed it, but felt very cramped and I was unable to get up from the table unless I asked 2 members of the next table to stand and move - this made me feel claustrophobic and also infringed in privacy. BUT overall a really lovely evening, I will just insist on one of the booths next time and not accept the small round tables.

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.
