The Rum Kitchen is a Caribbean eatery that bends the rules. We focus on bringing Caribbean beach shack food with travel inspired flavours to London. We have our roots in the Caribbean but we certainly ain’t your regular jerk shack! We have a few classics but even those have been given the Rum Kitchen twist.

    Possibly the worst service I have ever experienced. We were first greeted by a confused waitress who seemed to have no idea what she was doing. She then offered us a table for 5 when we had booked a table for 6. Once seated things got a little better and food was ordered and served, food was good as previously experienced. We then wanted more drinks and dessert, this took 20 mins to order them and after half hour we still didn't have our drinks so we complained. We then complained several times after this until we had been waiting an hour for ours drinks and dessert. During this time the waitress seemed to be sitting with her friends at any opportunity who were also dining that night. We were unable to order our bill as no one was attending to us so decided to head to the till to pay. Our guests went ahead and left the restaurant, I was behind checking the table was clear and then proceeded to the till. At arrival to the till, everyone was very attentive trying to call security for the people who had 'left with out paying'. At this point I informed them that if they looked around their restaurant from time to time they would see that some of the party had yet to leave and in turn, pay. All in all this was a dreadful, painstaking experience which has left my opinion of the Rum Kitchen brand tarnished. The Crazy thing is I chose the notting hill branch due to my recent visit (october 2017) to Rum Kitchen carnaby street being ended short by a mouse running under my table whilst I was eating. The manager tried to palm me off with a free drink and acted like he knew there wwere mice!!! I should of learnt that these obviously aren't very professional outfits. BEWARE of Rum Kitchen!!!

    Staff were miserable and we felt pressured to order as soon as we sat down so we didn't feel relaxed. Good tasting food & cocktails.

    Loved the restaurant, the food was excellent big portions. I had the fritters for starters and the jerk chicken both dishes very nice. Nice atmosphere, drinks were a bit expensive but overall very nice . Would definitely recommend. Some staff were rude but others were really nice and helpful. Didn’t let it ruin our experience.

    I visited The Rum Kitchen when it was newly opened and the ambience was great, especially the dance area downstairs. My latest visit on Sat 14 October (for a friend’s birthday) was great fun! We were allowed downstairs where we continued to drink and dance. However, the only downside to the night was 2 of my friends having to return their meals because the mutton (from the curry mutton) and the spicy chicken were undercooked. One re-ordered the fish (which is what i had), and the other re-ordered the Jerk Chicken. However, by the time they arrived, my friends had been put off eating further! They were complimentary about the portions, the cocktails and our waitress! Management were tentative and took our suggestions on board! I would go there again and stick to the saltfish fritters, the fish, the cocktails and the dancing downstairs!

    We found the staff so rude ! The manager on duty on that night was lovely but hes staff the girls who serving us they make us fell so uncomfortable . The girl on duty at the front door entry light skinny one told the girls we have to leave because the table was reserve to another people , we did understand that our wine bottle was half way so we ask them if we can go downstairs they said no because was reserve for birthdays parties so we explained we are having a good time the food was nice today its Friday lets us go down for a drink they said no . I call the manager he told us its fine we could stay ,after we spoke to the manager they come back told us to leave we said we going to go downstairs now they told us you are not allowed . So we left the restaurant .it was a shame because the restaurant its lovely food are great but the girls all of them part from the one work in the bar were playing with us after a long week and day at work .make us fell not welcome we didn't do nothing wrong we were 4 girls who having a good time .

    We arrive there at 3:00 pm after we so the menu for like 10 minutes we ordered but basically they didn't have a lot of dishes on the menu . They should told us before when they give us the menu . And the worst was they run out of bread (on Sunday brunch in unacceptable) . The waitress was not the best was like giving us a favour to serve us . Not the best impression as a first time there . They should keep the high standard as all the Rum kitchen has . Appart of that the food was very good . Hopefully when I will go back will be better

    First time visiting Rum Kitchen went to celebrate friends birthday, ordered various starters salt fish fritters needed more salt fish and as one friend is vegetarian ordered sweet corn fritters couldn't taste or see any sweetcorn :-( , menu lacks choice for non meat and fish eaters need more choices not just veggie curry :-( & prices were a bit pricey particularly the cocktails even though they were very tasty were very expensive, on a positive note the staff were very friendly and service was very good and had a great time even though bill at the end was very expensive would go again but needs to save up before next visit.

    Only OK. I had read good reviews about this place so was looking forward to eating there. However the food was only OK. I didn't find it to be as authentic as I thought it would and the menu wasn't very varied. Drinks wise, cocktails were weak and expensive. Service was poor. Not sure if that was because it was a busy Saturday night.

    Tasty array of authentic Caribbean dishes and an even tastier selection of rum based cocktails that will knock your socks off. Great Ambience, very attentive staff and an overall superb value for money. Try the Spiced squid, Proper Jerk washed down with a few Ting Wrays. An absolute delight

    Food was good and came quick. Before the drinks. Service staff seemed to be able to cope with the amount of people in the restaurant.One of us got the wrong drink. There was a pre-carnival the street going on, so inside it was even louder then it would be and you could barely understand your own word. It was okay, the food was nice and fairly priced for notting Hill but I don't think I'll be coming back anytime soon.

    Really enjoyed our meal at the Rum Kitchen, where 4 friends met up to celebrate a spate of birthdays. The food was excellent, and very tasty and the cocktails were well made and with a great range of different Rums. We also accidentally booked in on a night with happy hour, so had some great value cocktails to start. The various different Jerk plates all looked and tasted great and food and sides came quickly after ordering. Service was generally fast and polite, and although we had been warned before we only had the table for 2 hours, we weren't actually moved in the end, so got to stay finishing drinks for a bit longer. The only downside to the evening was that, although there was a good atmosphere, the music was up so loud as to make conversation very difficult, and everyone left rather hoarse. Maybe we are just getting old though?

    Been here before a couple years ago and it was amazing so this time I was expecting the same. Unfortunately I was left very disappointed. Brought my friend for her birthday, cocktails had so much ice in that after 3 sips (no joke) it was gone. The 'jerk' sauce tasted like it was out of a packet and the service was awful! Had to wave down the waitress for drinks and then waited about 10 mins each time. No one checked on us throughout the meal and then we had to wave down the grumpy waitress again to clear the plates after sitting there for 20 minutes after we had finished eating. So gutted :-( oh and to top it off the toilet was dirty too. Would not go back.

    All went well until I complained about my fish dish being too salty, my husband also had to return his dish for the same reason. The waitress was okay up until then. she clearly didn't appreciate the fact that as a paying customer I'm entitled to voice my displeasure at receiving a meal with way too much salt. She didn't even return to take my dessert order (hence why we didn't tip her). Because of her lack of professionalism I will not be returning for a while.

    Sunday lunch for 4, we both had the 'Sunday Roast for 2'...it was DELICIOUS, a roast with a caribbean twist....my advise would be to hold off on the starters as it's a big sharing dish. The cocktails we had were very nice and had a definite kick! Service was friendly and fast. The restaurant was quiet, so could not comment if it's the same during busy periods. Would definitely go back :)

    This is now my regular spot. Love the vibes & food. They attract a great crowd, mixed & friendly. The roti pizza is exceptional. We tend not to visit the club downstairs as the music is so much better in the restaurant. We've already got our table booked for next week. Think that says it all : )

    I would generally consider the Rum Kitchen "tucked away " in Nottinghill, so somewhat away from Portobello Road. All cocktails were delicious! The food was decent and we ordered across the full menu: - Crispy squid - Jerk wings - Sweet potato fries - Chilli mac and cheese - Mutton curry - Fried chicken The standout being the mutton curry which was delicious. The other items being average. All in all, spent about £140 for the above and 5 cocktails - so just pushing the boundaries of being reasonable.

    Food and atmosphere was great along with the attitude of the staff, however the only downfall was that it took us a while to get the waiters attention, which happened on 3/4 occasions. However it's great value for money, amazing authentic food and even though happy hour had finished a couple minutes after we arrived the staff kindly gave us a round at happy hour prices.

    Went as a group of 4 and we were all fond of the food, excellent flavours with a ting. Happy hour was Okay, bit if a scam as there is only a choice of 4/5 cocktails. Service was poor, kept getting hassled that our table was to be given to the next reservation, even an hour in advance. This took the shine off everything. Would recommend, good food with a twist, nice decor .. a cool retro place to try, would go back but wouldn't be desperate to.

    We really enjoyed our food at the Run Kitchen it was extremely tasty - we pre ordered and the starters took 30 minutes to come - we were also left at the table and we had to ask twice for service for drinks etc. and how long our food would be. They check on us once our mains had arrived but we were already disappointed with the service. We were also told prior to the booking if we wanted to got to the club downstairs we would 1. have to become a member (which we organised) 2. be in their by 10pm (we were not as the food took so long to arrive) 3. have a table in the club where it is bottle service only. We did this and it was £100 plus for a bottle of Rum - the table service was awful, left to make our own drinks and no service after they arrived. There were clearly other people in the club sat at tables that had not ordered £100 bottle and you could go and order drinks at the bar - which we were not told. The club was not busy and even though we had every intention of stay in the restaurant and going to the club after we were made to become members and pay for a table. Very disappointing experience.
