    Welcome was very average The moment we were seated we were pounced upon to order drinks and food even though we didn’t have menu !!! The speed and rush continued throughout the evening which ended by being made to feel we had overstayed our welcome Food was ok but nothing special and rather expensive Won’t be returning or recommending Certainly not as expected

    April the first and we were certainly fooled. Pay up front and wait 2 months for Pastry Club. Then you arrive on time, but have to wait for your food to start arriving after nearly an hour, while staff ask if you need another drink while waiting and increasing your bill. First - 1 Cheese sauce filled Profiterole, no announcements, just all customers staring at each other not knowing what to do. I ate this. Second - 1 Frogs leg in shredded pastry, a spider has more meat on it and it was under cooked. I ate this. Third - 1 tiny Vol-au-vent with 2 snails and very strong garlic. I left this. Fourth - Pate on shortcrust. Actually it was a water crust pastry pie of Morels and smoked veal and very nice. I ate this. Fifth - Lamb Biryani, was pretty, but only to look at. Badly under cooked. I left this. Sixth - Egg custard, 1 small taste left me feeling ill. Around 20 customers left more than half of theirs. The taste was really bad. I left this. Finally - 1 tiny doughnut with very sharp raspberry sauce and flowers that tasted of compost. Chef Degg is reputed for his skills on Great British Menu and J Raynor thinks its good here. But outside the restaurant afterwards the consensus was everything was really bad and there was a lot of food returned to the kitchen. Customers agreed that you should not have to pay in advance when you do not know if the food will be good or bad. April fool, yes you got us really bad. 3 hours of upset with hardly any food edible.

    I knew about the head chef and his work at Harewood F&D, so I booked Pastry Club in advance (£90) - a treat to end my 30th birthday weekend with my partner. We arrived on time, food was only served after about 40 minutes. No comment from staff or explanation as to what the food was. Generally, the staff weren't equipped with the knowledge about the food they were serving as well as the drinks they were making. The food was mostly great to look at but that's as far as it went. I was looking forward to the Pate En Croute and Lamb Balti, but in the end the cold cheese ball was probably the best thing served. The Pate En Croute - a cold slab of meat. The mustard was nice and made it bearable. My partner left half. We were told it was rabbit, veal and something else. Lamb Balti - barely edible with an overwhelming taste of cardamom. The food within the crust was in a sort of 'sack'. Again, no explanation about what was served. My partner cut into hers and left it believing it to be raw. I now agree after seeing other comments about the same dish. After a disastrous dinner ranging from cold cheese balls to what felt like the eating trial on I'm A Celeb, the Egg Curtard looked like a slice of heaven that might cleanse your pallet between chugging any liquid within arms reach. Wrong, it was essentially a horribly tasting egg slice. Many of these seemed to go uneaten. Overall, the experience was disappointing and a massive letdown. What started as a relaxed evening soon turned into an uncomfortable experience. Other guests in the restaurant looked equally confused and disappointed. Many full/half-eaten plates were going back to the kitchen, and I suspect this is why staff never actually asked how the food was - it was inedible and they didn't want to know. In the end, the night just felt like it was dragging on. We were told to come hungry but left feeling hungry and sick. We were told to come with an open mind but this is an understatement, the food was just bad.

    It's the second time we have been to Pastry Club at Kino and it's just brilliant! What a great idea! Both the quality of the food and the thought that goes into putting the menu together are outstanding - I'm not surprised it's starting to sell out fast! Having guest chefs is another good twist and Josh Whitehead deserves a big pat on the back for getting this concept going. Totally original idea and an exceptional night out!

    Kino is fantastic, the staff are attentive, helpful and friendly. The food is absolutely outstanding. They were so kind and helpful with my Mum who walks using a walker, nothing was too much trouble, Jamie put us at a table nearest the door and the staff took the walker. It was also an absolute bargain as it was one meal for Mother's Day and your Mum goes free! Outstanding. Thanks to all and I'll definitely be back.
