Harden's survey result
“Vibrant”, “thoughtful” cuisine is very consistently produced at both Michael Nadra’s eponymous restaurants, in Chiswick and Camden Town. Both sites, though, are awkward in their way: the former “is a small space that’s a bit of a squeeze” (window tables are best); while the latter, right next to the Regent’s Canal, is a little stuck out-on-a-limb, and can seem “a little morgue-like” when it’s not busy. Both sites, though, are pepped up by their “friendly” staff.
Michael Nadra makes “a talented and charming chef/patron” and his duo of neighbourhood restaurants – in Chiswick and Camden Town (right next to the Regent’s Canal) – both provide a “welcoming” venue and “surprisingly good value for sophisticated modern French cooking”. On the downside, both inhabit awkward sites – NW1 is “cavernous” and slightly “remote”, while W4 is low-ceilinged and tightly packed.
“Excellent modern French cuisine and a variable atmosphere” are the common themes which unite feedback on Michael Nadra’s accomplished but disparate duo of ventures. Both occupy “difficult” sites – the Chiswick original is notably tightly packed, while Camden Town (right next to Regent’s Canal) has an unusual lay-out. In more mainstream locations, he would enjoy a much higher profile.
“Top notch” modern French cuisine that “outperforms many more famous names” maintains high satisfaction with Michael Nadra’s duo of local restaurants, in Chiswick (the better known original) and Camden Town (“juxtapositioned between Regents Park and Camden Town just near the canal”), even if both venues share in different ways a somewhat “difficult layout”. Top Menu Tip – “always good fish” is the highlight with “an interesting twist on old favourite dishes”.
