Food always hot always tasty. Nice calm atmosphere especially at lunchtime you can actually have a conversation without having to shout! Staff polite and professional but always friendly without being pushy. We have been many times but it was a first for our friends and they loved it.

Very lovely meal. Quiet for a Friday lunchtime made it nice and romantic. Lunchtime offers are reasonably priced. Food portions are good. Staff are attentive without being overbearing.

My 2nd visit and will be going again.

Highly recommended.

I found this place in trip advisor. We were staying locally ans I booked a family meal early on Saturday evening for myself, my husband and 7 year old son.
The food was absolutely lovely. We all enjoyed every dish. The staff were very friendly especially with our son. Definitely recommend it, it’s just a shame that we are not local as we’d be back sooner

Lovely evening out with grown up children as always the food was fantastic. The noise levels did seem a bit loud this time. But there were a few large groups in which tends to make people talk louder. This also affected the service speed as they were rushed off their feet. The one thing I would recommend is.... Why can't the jugs of tap water be on the table. As a non drinker and the designated driver I was for ever waiting for more water. Other than that we had a wonderful meal and evening out.

My boyfriend and I had wanted to go and try it for a while and booked a week in advance to go Saturday just gone! We got a seat right by the kitchen which we could everything being cooked! Although a bit hot we loved it! The food was amazing and so worth the money! It was fully booked and had such a buzzy atmosphere!! Will definitely go again and take other people 😊

This is the second time we have been to Skewd Kitchen. We were hugely impressed the first time, and no less impressed this time. The cuisine is Turkish, of a very accomplished and refined variety. The starters, of which there are many, are very fresh tasting and delicious. They are preceded by the arrival of a sort of balloon bread which is excellent; we have never had it elsewhere. Of the main courses we have kept to the lamb shish, which is remarkable for its wonderful taste and tenderness. It is the house speciality. I should say we are great admirers of Turkish food, and have been to very many of the Turkish restaurants in London. This is hands down the very best.
