Summary

Last year’s makeover has failed to transform Tom Aikens’s casual dining venture in a Chelsea backstreet, which remains a handy amenity for breakfast or a bite in the area, but is “not what it used to be” as a destination (and inspires modest feedback nowadays). Meanwhile, its sister venues in Canary Wharf and Somerset House have closed down, amid little sign of the standards that made Aikens the youngest British chef to earn two Michelin stars at 26.

Summary

These “smart” casual dining venues in Chelsea and Canary Wharf win most acclaim for their “top breakfasts” and the Somerset House outlet has “a fabulous location on the river (outside in summer)”. The food is “decent” but gives no particular hints of much connection with chef Tom Aikens, who founded the group.

Summary

Erstwhile haute cuisine star Tom Aikens has switched his focus to these casual diners in recent years. Fans (the majority) praise their “lively” staff and “good bistro cooking at friendly prices”, but ratings are still dragged down by numerous reports of “slapdash” results.

Summary

“For a serious weekend breakfast”, fans do tip Tom Aikens’s casual bistros (particularly the backstreet Chelsea original), but overall they give an impression that’s decidedly “average”.
