The Natural Kitchen Angel Court
At Natural Kitchen we love good food. Whether it is our fresh fruit & vegetables, fish or meat from our handful of suppliers everything is selected on taste & quality first. Our foods provenance is paramount in our minds so we take the time to ensure our ingredients are from sustainable & ethical sources so you can just enjoy knowing Natural Kitchen has done the hard work. Food & drink for us is about family and friends getting together. Its about great people & importantly must be accessible to all. Whether you are grabbing a snack or a sit down meal or just a drink we offer it all in our restaurants, bars & food to go deli’s.
I was looking forward to dinner with a friend at the Natural Kitchen; I used to have their food regularly and know it to be wonderful, but hadn't ben for some time. On arrival, however, at 6:30pm, it was like a nightclub rather than a restaurant; with excessively loud music, then for some reason they had both doors wedged open on what was a very windy day, and the through draught created a hurricane inside! As soon as my friend arrived we left to go elsewhere - very disappointing. The staff were lovely and I know the food to be good, but they are clearly more focused on the post-wrok drinkers than diners at that venue in the evening. Stick to lunchtime if you want a meal and a chat.
Food is terribly overpriced, and you need to purchase sides on top. It's tasty, but not worth the money.
Service was ok - we got served despite them being very busy. But it's not service with a smile! None of the staff looked like they wanted to be there.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend.
Nice place for a work lunch - good healthy options!
Fantastic! Best nachos ever!
My colleagues burger looked like it had been microwaved and my fish cakes were bland but the crumb was far too salty.
Loved the food and catered for all. Service was a bit slow to start and had to call the serving staff several times for drinks. Did get better throughout the evening. Found it quite loud through general talking and music but also put that down to the acoustics. It was nice to not have a time limit on the table which made for us an enjoyable evening.
For groups of 8-10 people though it has been suggested that a round table or booth would be better. Long rectangle tables dont seem to work very well
Great selection of options for vegans and vegetarians, as well as meat-eaters. Service was fast, friendly, unobtrusive and efficient, overall great for a quick lunch.
Incredible food, flavours and quality of produce - really enjoyed it and would go back again. The wine is a little pricey and the organic rose wasn't super... would be great to have some other choices that aren't too expensive.
Lovely venue and great staff, delicious food. Will go back again.
Lovely salad selection and flexibility to accommodate dietary requirements. Recommend!
I have eaten Natural Kitchen many times and found the food very tasty. However at my last visit we had fish and chips. We found the fish extremely oily and we were disappointed that the fish was placed on top of our chips as the oil made our chips (sweet potato) damp. Would definitely eat here again, though not have the fish and chips.
We booked a business lunch at the Natural Kitchen at the recommendation of a client. On arrival, the staff could not have been more helpful, and the same applied throughout the meal. The food was really tasty, and well presented, and the service excellent.
Two down sides though .. one was the noise levels. Because of the wooden floors, and the size of the ground floor restaurant, it was really hard to hear anyone on our table, even those sat next to each other! I probably wouldn't go again because of this, despite the many positives. Meeting clients for lunch and then not being able to talk to them defeats the object!
The second negative for me was the unbelievable humidity of the toilets (located in the basement) - it was tropical rainforest-esque, and the very muggy and hot atmosphere combined with the usual toilet' smells' left me cold (so to speak)! If there could be any form of ventilation installed down there, it would be a huge positive. It was bordering on unpleasant and I'll cross my legs next time!
Otherwise, the food and service were the stand-outs.
The menu for both food and drinks are extensive, and there are plenty of lovely choices.
I enjoy coming to the Natural Kitchen in the City, but I do find the noise level offputting. I don't know if there is any way of placing some screening to cut down noise levels.
Great place , amazing food and very good choice of veg and vegan dishes .
We had a big group and they were brilliant at accommodating and extra person.
The service was very slow. And and they missed a couple of orders.
Somehow they brought all starters and mains at the same time .
However they recognise who it was and the meal that was missed was on the house.
The food was excellent though.
Great service - we were a large table (11 people), but everyone was served swiftly. Good food, as always.
Nice but noisy for meals. Big echoey space.
Fish and chips were great
Much too loud. The walls and ceiling are stark so there is a lot of echo, which seems fine in the daytime but in the evening they also turn the music up. It was impossible for a group of four to have a proper conversation. When the waitress is repeatedly failing to hear anyone’s order and feels she has to apologise for the noise, you should know you have a problem.
Noisy. Beetroot and lentils in my salad were undercooked. Otherwise unmemorable. Every time I go there I think the concept is great but the food and the overall package just isn’t as good as it could be
A mixed evening. Nice venue and the majority of the food was good, however, the risotto was very disappointing (tasteless and poor texture) and the service was good at the start of the evening but became rather inattentive later on.
This is more as bar with food. And not very good food either. The whole central bar area was packed as was outside with after work drinkers. The music was very loud and overpowering.The 'restaurant' area was very sparsely populated. We had starters of 'special' chicken quesadilla where the triangle end had some chicken filling whilst the base end was just hard inedible pastry. The main of fish cakes were dry and tasteless and served on a bed of greens and peas. The salmon in the salmon salad was over-cooked. The waitress said she would bring our complaints to the attention of the management. I will certainly not be returning.
went there for a casual business lunch - for the second time.
waiters were again very attentive and friendly and the food is a nice selection of tasty and healthy meals with nice vegetarian/vegan options too.
it's a nice place with a slightly alternative/funky design and feel to it.
high ceiling helps keep the noise level on a medium level.
Food is excellent, but only thing that let this down was that the reservation made on Opentable for 1315, was taken by someone else at 1240. Meaning that initially there was no table for us, and in the end we had to go outside. NK did not respect the booking or check that the other party that took the reservation actually were the right ones. Very frustrating when you book specifically.
Food is so good Food is so good Food is so good Food is so good Food is so good Food is so good
Nice busy place, can get quite noisy during lunch time. Food is very good.
Lovely lively place for lunch - decent menu with good choices and flexibility with salads to add chicken halloumi etc. Only slight criticism is our table was quite cramped against a wall and was quite packed in / lots tables so if you’re looking for intimacy this may not be the place for you :) but the counterarguement is a great ambiance
Hoped there would be more vegan options. Seem to be too many people for the staff to pay attention to. Do like that the wine menu shows vegan options. Received the wrong order which staff pointed out. Kept it as it was still quite nice but attention to detail would be appreciated as I have an allergy to almonds which could have been an issue.
Menu is getting a bit boring. Service good and prices reasonable.
My friends were a nightmare and all turned up at different times, with various dietary requests, and the staff were all so lovely and patient about it!
The food is always great & everyone was very happy with their meals!
Booked for a team lunch. Very good menu catering for all requirements (vegans, protein crammers).
Service was average but food was really good.
The natural kitchen is lovely, definitely worth a visit but expensive for what it is. For one tea, a soft drink, a salad and a burger it came to £55, for lunch I'd say that although the food was good it's a very expensive lunch.
Great lunch, to catch up with Friends. Service and food all 5*.
The service was poor and unacceptable. Although a table was booked the lady upon arrival made no effort to check. I advised I am waiting for a guest to which I was told they have no guests waiting for colleagues. I was sat at a table and after 10 minutes I emailed by guest only for him to turn around and say I am waiting. As we have not met previously we were unaware we are waiting for each other hence why a table for two was booked. Table hummus was delivered alongside the main meal. Really, a small table by the window with no space. Main meal was ok. had to wait a at least 10 minutes before a member of staff provided the bill. Overall as mentioned unacceptable service and embarrassing.
The food wasn’t nothing to write home about and definitely not good value for money.
Having been asking numerous times if we were ready to order. Once ordering the food took for ever. Not ideal on a business lunch. And we were only informed after the 45 minute wait ... to be told it would be another 10 minutes!
Great service and food. Poor acoustics.
We went for an office lunch to celebrate a birthday. It was very busy and noisy but the food arrived promptly. It was very tasty, well presented and the portion size was good. You do have to pay extra for sides which adds £4 -£5 to the meal for a portion of fries or vegetables. Fish & Chips was huge.
Great food and service at affordable prices in the premium business area.
Love this place with wide open space and natural plants and wood decor. Food is healthy and portions size is decent. Great bar too. Fun and natural!
If you want to join a bunch of people and be in a very noisy smoky environment this is the place for you. If not don't go.
We left as we couldn't get any service to be shown to our table having passed through the crowd of smokers. The food may have been good, but we never got that far.
