We were thoroughly enjoying our meal, for my birthday. However whilst still finishing our dessert and wine we were thrown our coats abruptly and told our table was needed ASAP. This was the first we had heard of this or given a warning.

The waiter frantically thrusting a card machine at us and getting out his iPhone calculator to work out our bill seemed like a major inconvenience to him. We personally found this very unprofessional and left a bad taste in our mouth and ruining what would of been a lovely dining experience.

Unfortunately the party of 6 dinners next to our table was not only loud but used extremely foul language which spoiled part of our dining experience at Kutir. However, the manager did talk to the dinners who refused to “tone down” their conversation. The other table nearby complained as well but no results.
Immaculate food and excellent service but dinners with no manners are something the restaurant can’t control.

I brought my mum here on Saturday to celebrate my recent engagement. We both had the tasting menu and it was amazing. Our waiter, Azim, was amazing! Really intuitive, kind and didn't try to upsell (which I hate!). Each course was delicious and had some interesting flavours. The 'main' course of Seabass curry was sensational! We also received a complimentary chocolate dessert with "congratulations" piped on the plate which was lovely. I really enjoyed the townhouse cosy feel, despite some of our fellow diners one of whom was on his phone right next to us and a couple who clearly could not wait until they got home to express their desire for one another. Nothing to do with the restaurant. So why only 4 stars? Our lovely experience was unfortunately very abruptly ended. Our waiter came over to ask if we wanted a coffee, to which we asked if we had time, very aware of the 2hr table limit (they had subsequently asked the over-zealous couple to leave as it was past their 2 hr slot). He said yes he thought so. No sooner had the coffee arrived and I had asked for the bill that our coats were delivered and we were ushered out of the building promptly to be left on the street in the rain. I want to state that I fully understand and respect the 2hr limit on tables at these fine dining establishments and in fact promote them. However, to usher your diners out into the rain is really unacceptable and really did ruin a perfectly brilliant experience. My advice is to create a reception bar somewhere where patrons can finish their coffee and petit fours in peace and leave at their own pace.

Kutir was a great place to celebrate our anniversary. The tasting menu looked great but we opted for a la carte- our favourite dishes - lamb shank, daal & bappa doi . Fantastic venue & great staff!!

Set in a posh Chelsea townhouse, this restaurant is beautifully decorated and the ambience was great, not noisy at all. Food was incredibly flavoursome and plating was very classy! We had lamb chops, chicken chops and paneer makhni as starters. For mains we tried the guinea fowl biryani, jackfruit kofta and kaali dal with a bread basket. Portions size was decent to be shared. We could not resist trying the Falooda rabdi, mango lassi, nut-khat cocktail and Valrhona chocolate cake for cocktails and desserts! Overall a wonderful experience.

This is a lovely restaurant with good staff and good food, my only comment would be that it would be nice to be able to settle in before being rushed to our table past lots of staff and the bar, we were seated in the ground floor room and maybe it is different upstairs. Somewhere to take off your coat, have a drink and get warmed up would be more relaxing and then to be escorted to you table would feel nicer and make it a more of an evening out. I wonder if as it is because they have a 2 hour time slot it felt rushed to get you in, fed and out in the time allowed. We usually like to sit and continue to drink and chat for a while after a meal. wait for our cab, not have to pay the bill and rush out. Fortunately we were able to get a cab organised for as we left otherwise we would have been waiting round outside in the cold.

Perfect place for a romantic dinner for lovers of Indian cuisine. The layout of the converted Victorian home is well utilized as it provides an intimate setting (upstairs). The room we were (anniversary) in only had four tables. When dining alone, I was sat in the back room on the first floor and really felt quite comfortable. Service is impeccable.

The food is always excellent, though the service was affected by mistakes. Nothing major, but it would be better to make sure orders are written down. Also, the tables are small so precision of movement for waiters in a restaurant lie Kutir is important.

The food was fantastic and would certainly recommend the lamb shank. The service felt a little rushed and wasn't so attentive throughout the experience, however, the welcome was very nice. It's a little on the pricey end but a unique experience with the variety of food on offer. Nice for a special occasion.

Had a wonderful meal here. Everything we tried as delicious. Our server recommended the Aloo Tiki and it was fabulous. We also had the venison curry - so tender and flavorful. We ordered one dish too many and did not get to sample any dessert. The wine we had with dinner was also good. Our dining experience here was really fantastic. Katie has elevated Indian cuisine to such a level that it would be a disappointment to eat anywhere else.

The food continues to amaze! A sign of its popularity is that it gets a bit loud but don't let that put you off

The cocktails are brilliant as well. Try madhosh

My favourite is the lamb and biryani though together they are a bit much!
