Second time at The Kitchen, and again the food: service and ambience were great. Our waitress was very attentive without being intrusive and we had a really enjoyable night. The Kitchen is the best thing to happen to Westhoughton for years.

This is one restaurant that I highly recommend, everything about it just ouzes perfection, the food, drink, atmosphere, vibe and service. Westhoughton are lucky to have such a hidden gem on their doorstep. Hope you enjoy as much as me and my family do.

Disappointing lack of Greek authenticity. Very minimalist inside with no frills. Scruffy infact - certainly not 'boutique' as the website describes.

No table cloths, just bare tables, even a paper taverna style table cloth would make you feel like your were in a restaurant.
The photos on the website are rather flattering.


Decor does not reflect that of a Greek restaurant and the menu isn't really Greek either, save the odd dish such as chicken souvlaki.

E.g - No Stifado, kleftiko, Briam, Tsigari, Bekri Meze, etc

The pork was pork belly, small portions at £14. A better option would be a Greek style grill room where a plateful of spit roast pork with chips costs less than a tenner.

Bottle of Retsina was £20 - it's the same Retsina they sell off the shelf in Sainsburys for £5.75 https://bit.ly/2xkgpad

Unfortunately the overall scruffiness of the place means that it wasn't worth £75 for a two course meal with bottle of Retsina.

I have been several times and the food is excellent every time and the menu is varied with specials options too.
However on this occasion - friends get together, we booked via open table for 6.30pm, nowhere on the booking does it say you have limited time at your table, the first we knew our table had been booked again was at 7.50pm when the waitress told us our table was booked again at 8pm. We had just ordered cocktails to have after our desserts and were asked to have our drinks downstairs at the bar, which isn’t really a bar but where people wait to be seated and the kitchen is. Having sat at the bar, one of our group was asked to get up as there’s storage under the seating and the waitress needed something.
I will go back as the food is fantastic but I will ensure the table isn’t booked again so we are not rushed.

Lovely menu. I went on Weds where it is 2 courses for £15. Excellent value for money. Lovely fresh ingredients and the Gin menu was lovely. I’ve been 7-8 times now, best place to eat in Westhoughton.

Just love the place. Pleasant, enthusiastic staff (& chef !) with authentic Greek food - either as junky or as healthy as you feel like. Lovely cosy atmosphere - a real gem - just what Westhoughton needed.
It's the kind of place that makes me smile when I think of it.

Lovely authentic food v tasty and decent portions. Music was a little loud for us but overall a great bustling atmosphere. Would definitely return to try other dishes. We had lamb and courgette to start and pork bellies and pork cheek as main. Fries were deliciously tasty and salad was superb !
House wine was ok . Cocktails were a bit pricey at £8 and slightly bland ( elderflower and prosecco special). Good attentive service throughout!
