Utterly eye catching and beyond stylish, Hyde – Kensington acts not as a vibrant cocktail bar but as a modern Pan-Asian focussed restaurant too.
Now accepting the tastecard, members calling in advance can indulge in all manners of resplendent dishes at an incredible price, providing plenty of funds left over to investigate the tantalising cocktail menu.
Decorated in a style that celebrates both English history, with touches like suits of knight’s armour and portraits of royalty, as well as the modern nightlife of London, with atmospheric and vivid mood lighting as well as an incredibly well stocked bar, Hyde – Kensington serves as a spectacular spot for any kind of occasion.
The eclectic menu covers all kinds of enticing delights, varying between a host of Asian cuisines, yet mostly settled in Far Eastern options like dumplings and sushi. Those looking for more than just a wealth of wondrous finger foods can find some larger plates though, in case the likes of the popcorn shrimp and the duck rolls aren’t filling enough.
Particularly noteworthy examples of such include the heavenly soft shell crab, fried until golden in light tempura batter, and the succulent sirloin beef bulgogi, complete with Japanese chive enriched mashed potatoes and lotus root crisps.
Located directly opposite Kensington Palace, Hyde – Kensington is easy to find and works wonders for those looking to top off a day of culture with an evening of sublime fare and fantastic drinks.
Please Note: Hyde - Kensington is closed Sunday - Tuesday. The tastecard discount is not available throughout December.
