The stars as are for the decor and the building really, as those are great!. Even though the food is tasty the portions and the price is appalling, so as the presentation . I went with high expectations after watching the Spice Trip program and cooking some of the recipes myself. Our starter didn't even have any meat in , and mains were again overpriced, for what they were. Also I bought the book for £20 only to find that Amazon sell it for £5 :(


We have been to The Dock Kitchen many times as we live in the area, and have always had a delicious meal. The highlights are definitely chicken livers starter and the lamb biriyani main. We have never had a problem with the service, it is always friendly and warm. And the maitre d' has always been very nice. The reason for the four stars though, is that it is quite expensive, however the food and atmosphere make up for it.


Somewhat pricey but we had a good meal here on a sat night. I started with some spicy chicken livers and went on with a curry. Very nice. Warm service. I'd go back.


This place has great atmosphere, good but overpriced food, warm and courteous service, and a rude and obnoxious maître d.

I met an old mate for lunch at The Dock Kitchen, my girlfriend's suggestion. Lovely Terrace by the Grand Union. Gorgeous sunny saturday. Booked a table. No one greeted us as we arrived, so we sat at an empty table. Waited quite a while before we were noticed. I wasn't very hungry, so was looking to be delighted by delicious starter. Ordered carpaccio of sea bass, the most expensive starter at £9.50. My friend ordered the rabbit main. When our food finally arrived, my friend's rabbit was fine, but my starter was a mere whisper on the plate. Nice, but tiny. We waited, and waited for the desert menu. Then waited and waited for someone to take our order. Finally gave up, got bill, and removed to the Chamberlayne up the road, who provided a prompt and friendly sticky toffee pudding and cheese platter with a couple of pints.
