Bland food, faceless service, nothing wrong but nothing memorable
Poor service. Guests who needed a quick lunch weren’t allowed to sit at our table with take away food from the same restaurant. It would have been simple to put this on a plate and have them join us. Service was slow and unattentive. Not worth it given the cost of eating here.
Enjoyed the food, noisy but it was lunchtime. Will be back again
Went for breakfast. Fast and efficient service and friendly staff
A great location but I felt the food was dry (fish cakes) and all very very noisy. Service good and quick. Will use again as convenient but would not recommend for lunch.
Wanted a different table as it’s right by the walkway but was told by the manageress that it’s for 4 people (we booked for 3). However, the table was given to another group of 3 people. So not sure how that works. The waitresses were very nice; it’s a shame about the first impression. It’s very noisy because of wooden floor and tables/chairs, so if you want to want to chat, maybe go elsewhere.
Too busy and horrible
Table layout with silly rules about the better areas held for people that queue up for food then sit and eat. All a nonsense. Won’t bother again but food was good.
Everything worked - food was great - waitress helpful and reasonable cost.
We had booked for 4 but only 3 people turned up so we were asked to move to a table for 3 (right next to the takeaway queue so very loud with people constantly bumping into our seats) and they needed the table for 4 people. We agreed only for them to sit another group of 3 people at the table. Discrimination at its finest.
Two of us had the halloumi burger - its ok but its a halloumi patty, not slices of halloumi which leads to a very odd texture - would not recommend ordering it!
Great food, great service, great ambience - I take my business and personal friends here because they never disappoint. Their lamb burger is so so good.
Great food but really noisy environment- hard to have a conversation without shouting.....which makes everyone else shout louder!
Too noisy and tables too close together though food is ok
Had a good experience. Food very nicely prepared and presented. If i am being v critical is was quick tightly packed in table and chair wise and it was v noisy.
Chose salmon salad with soba noodles which was average. Food arrived extremely quickly. The portion was not particularly generous.
The biggest problem was the noise level: I could barely hear what the person opposite was saying.
We were in the thoroughfare in a loud part of the restaurant but the food was great.
The service was ok as well as the ambience. The food was below average with over cooked chicken and very overpriced
Good menu and always reliably tasty. Slightly disappointed with the halloumi in the halloumi salad, it's normally delicious but on this occasion was hard and greasy
Not really set up to bring a pushchair in as the only way to the booked table was down the side where people queue for their lunch takeaway. We carried the pushchair upstairs to get out after to prevent asking the queue of people to move. Very noisy and tables very close together.
Decidedly average. Breakfast arrived very quickly which we surprising and then I realised that the avocado on toast look like it hadn't been freshly prepared and wasn't very appealing or tasty. Nice coffee though. Too many tables and chairs, it was quite congested.
Vegan burger arrived cold and the wine was very overpriced
Good for a quick healthy lunch, albeit pricey for 2 salads..
Good and healthy food with lots of variety on the menu.
Busy and a little noisy but in a good way - perfect for an informal business meeting or catching up with friends.
Our starter arrived with our main which was a little disappointing but otherwise a very good experience.
The restaurant was absolutely packed, and my table booking had not uploaded. Fortunately just as the server was telling me I hadn't got a booking, it turned up. It was incredibly noisy, and the service a bit delayed, but the food came fast and was delicious. Not particularly cheap, but just what we needed that day. Good vegetarian options and great that the (pricey) burgers all have a no-bun option, with salad instead. My crab salad was fab, as were the sweet potato fries and the creme brulee.
I will go back, but they didn't really distinguish themselves this time on service.
Service was great but it was quiet, have been before when it was busy and service was considerably different.
Food was good, portion size good also which wasn’t the case on my previous visit.
Great spot for a quick lunch time catch up.
Service was a bit slow but otherwise a very good restaurant.
Dined here for a group lunch (14 people) during the busy Christmas period. We had pre ordered, and they made the experience seamless. It did take a while to get the bill and they had issues with the card machine, which can prove problematic when its a cashless restaurant. But overall a good time was had by all.
Food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive and helpful. Service was very good also.
Lunch with a Colleague - it was busy but we were served - the food was great and all just worked
We had to wait 30 minutes for our table even though we had pre-booked. When we did get our table they had crammed 6 of us onto a table meant for 3. The wait staff seemed flustered and too busy to manage a full house. The food was pretty good, nothing spectacular.
Lovely lunch with friends at Natural Kitchen. The salads are delicious. I had the tuna salad and the tuna was lightly cooked and very flavoursome.
I’ve also had the salmon salad in the past and this is delicious too.
Prices are reasonable and service is good particularly when time is limited during the workday!
The food here as rather dreary and dated. The tuna too raw and too chewy and the salad comprised of squeaky green beans, much less tan fresh, rocket and underripe cherry tomatoes. I had to ask for a dressing! My companion seemed moderately happy with her food though passed not comment and didn't finish it all.
Food and atmosphere were good, but the noise level was far too high - which made the experience not as enjoyable as it could have been. They need to do something about the level of noise.
The portion size was really small and left me hungry after lunch and the price was prohibitive. Also even though I had mentioned I was a wheelchair user, they had blocked the accessible entrance with a fancy barrel with cutlery in it. My companion and I had to push the barrel so I would get in. No one was around to help
Good lunch time venue for a light meal. Nice friendly staff. Innovative food.
Amateur service. Cold. Needs proper staff and management or more staff. Lacks warmth from staff and from heating
Whilst what we ended up with was good our first choice of Tuna was not available which affected 2 dishes on the menu. Not a good start to the week for a healthy restaurant.
As always the food at Natural Kitchen was very good with particularly fresh and top quality ingredients. The place is always very busy and it can get really noisy at popular times. It is however buzzy and well worth going to. Not cheap in my view but given the quality its worth it. I really enjoyed the falafel salad
Breakfast at Natural Kitchen is just OK. Nothing special. It's not terrible or inedible but when you spend £10 on some avocado on toast and 2 small poached eggs, you'd want it to be slightly better than just OK.
We had an eggs Benedict and the pancakes which were much the same; over priced and nothing special.
Very Good food and service. Handy location to Holborn
Terrible. Waited 10 minutes for the table, even though we booked. Then waited another 20 minutes before the drinks order. 10 minutes for 3 soft drinks to arrive. Food mediocre. Waited another 20 minutes for the bill. Noise level was unbearable. Late back to the office. No way am I going back.
