Indian
KUTIR, meaning ‘COTTAGE’ in Sanskrit, draws inspiration from the royal tradition of hunting expedition in the luscious forests and jungles of the Indian countryside. The food is representative of the feasting-style, convivial and celebratory dining that occurs on these retreats.

We had a superb meal at Kutir. Every course of the tasting menu was outstanding and the wine pairings were exceptional and well matched. Service was friendly and professional. Extraordinary in every respect.

Perfect place for a romantic dinner for lovers of Indian cuisine. The layout of the converted Victorian home is well utilized as it provides an intimate setting (upstairs). The room we were (anniversary) in only had four tables. When dining alone, I was sat in the back room on the first floor and really felt quite comfortable. Service is impeccable.

The food is always excellent, though the service was affected by mistakes. Nothing major, but it would be better to make sure orders are written down. Also, the tables are small so precision of movement for waiters in a restaurant lie Kutir is important.

The food was fantastic and would certainly recommend the lamb shank. The service felt a little rushed and wasn't so attentive throughout the experience, however, the welcome was very nice. It's a little on the pricey end but a unique experience with the variety of food on offer. Nice for a special occasion.

Had a wonderful meal here. Everything we tried as delicious. Our server recommended the Aloo Tiki and it was fabulous. We also had the venison curry - so tender and flavorful. We ordered one dish too many and did not get to sample any dessert. The wine we had with dinner was also good. Our dining experience here was really fantastic. Katie has elevated Indian cuisine to such a level that it would be a disappointment to eat anywhere else.

Came from the US to London and stumbled upon this absolute gem!. We ate at multiple Michelin starred restaurants in London but found this restaurant was the best of the bunch. Incredibly well prepared food that is fresh with a perfect balance of spices and ingredients and in the most lovely environment. A must go to!

Loved the salmon and broccoli starters. Being with a vegetarian party, the dal went down a treat aling with the veggie starters. the chicken curry was okay, in hindsight would go for another starter. Overall would go again

Beautiful room, lovely food, service started out attentive but as the restaurant got busy we were ignored. I finally had to flag down the head waiter and ask for a check. No offer of more water, dessert or coffee. Disappointing.

Refreshingly different - some great food combinations I have never tried, well spiced and perfectly cooked. Service was to a fine dining standard and the atmosphere was intimate and cosy. My new favourite Indian restaurant in Chelsea/Knightsbridge/Mayfair

We had the Signature Expedition menu, the food was really good. For Indian inspired food it was spicy but not too spicy. Unfortunately, the wine pairing did not convince us. The quality of wine was of very different levels and if you had chosen the fish main, they would go from a red wine to a white wine and back to red, which is usually not recommended. Ambiance is very nice, and very well located close to Sloan Square.

The express menu was really good value. The prawns masala starter was the star of the show. It was absolutely delicious as was the smoky black Dahl. And the cocktail - one inspired by Chelsea Flower Show was a lunchtime indulgence to rejoice in. The venison certainly wasn’t poor, nor were the breads. Deserts were fabulous. The ‘front room’/teashop feel was great, service spot on - the thumping from works next door (harsh perhaps to mark Kutir down for that) was the only ‘blot’. I plan to return with friends.

This is the best Indian food I had in London. The flavors were incredible and everything was cooked to perfection. I love the thought behind each dish and the chef put his own spin on classic dishes. The ambiance is so charming. I loved the wallpaper and the homey feel. All of the staff were warm we friendly and very attentive.

Loved Kutir! Possibly the best Indian food I've ever eaten (over many years of loving Indian food); pleasant ambiance and very friendly staff. We had the regular tasting menu, with wine pairings, and everything was fantastic. The staff was very accommodating, substituting a vegetarian dish for the lamb (which I don't eat) and adding a dish of morels. The morels, together with the prawns, were probably my favorite items, but, really, everything was outstanding. Wine pairings were thoughtfully chosen. Highly recommended.

Food was incredibly good, each dish was different but equally tasty. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing, which was expensive, but one of the best meals in a long time. Service was very good and an interesting location. Next time I would probably go a la carte, as the final courses pushed me over the edge and I was very full!

Tried the early evening set menu-very tasty food, excellent service, nice ambience.
The drinks were great, the table loved the IPA served, and their mango lassi is amongst the best I’ve had. All the food was delicious, including the wonderful vegetarian options.
2 small things prevented me giving a perfect score:
Portion size of the main courses was a little stingy. The chicken tikka had 2 x 2inch pieces of chicken in a sea of masala. Likewise the jackfruit kofta was a single 2x1 inch piece in another sea of masala! Plentiful carbs to accompany the main which was good, however it felt a little like an attempt to ensure fullness of the stomach with rice and bread (the inexpensive things to make), rather than the delicious curries for which one is actually paying for.
The masala teas were poor, dilute in terms of tea flavour yet also considerably over-spiced. As a group of masala tea lovers, we couldn’t drink them.
Overall very good, would visit again. Few small tweaks to make it a regular fixture.

The food was amazing. Excellent quality of the ingredients, flavoursome, super spicy (I realize it might not be for everyone but it worked well for us).
I loved the decor of the room; although it has high ceilings, it felt a bit too cramped, as the tables are very close to each other. Because of this, it could get a noisy.
Service was ok but there is a good margin for improvement. The poured us the wrong wine (from another table probably), messed up a bit in collecting plates. They were warm and friendly though.
Overall a good option, especially for the food you can eat there
