Our Story

Founded by the renowned British chef, Tom Aikens, Tom’s Kitchen is located in Chelsea. The restaurant serves British favourites and comfort food classics, perfect for sharing with family and friends. With an emphasis on where food comes from and how it is grown, Tom’s Kitchen is dedicated to using UK-based suppliers and local producers; the ethos of Tom’s Kitchen is simple: use the very best seasonal and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. The restaurants work with British suppliers and farmers that are as passionate about growing as the chefs are about cooking.

The team is committed to serving fresh, ethically sourced ingredients and goes to great lengths researching the finest sustainable produce.

 

Following an extensive refurbishment, Tom’s Kitchen Chelsea relaunched in spring 2018, with a beautiful new design and updated menu. Popular starters from the a la carte include Chicken liver foie gras parfait with cauliflower piccalilli, pickled onions, spiced mango purée and peanut, and Treacle cured cod loin with lemon purée, sea vegetables and pickled baby beets. Mains include all the revered Tom’s Kitchen classics, as well as large sharing plates such as 7-hour cooked shoulder of lamb; Chateaubriand with onion tart and Béarnaise. Spread over three floors, the restaurant is located in a beautiful Chelsea townhouse. Following the relaunch, a ground floor bar has become a focal point for both counter dining and drinks, whilst relaxed window seating has also been introduced. Both the ground floor and first floor dining rooms have been rejuvenated through the introduction of luxurious upholstery and a richer, darker colour scheme, bringing warmth and cosiness to the space and contrasting to the signature white tile finish and wooden panelling. Meanwhile the third floor of Tom’s Kitchen Chelsea boasts two beautiful rooms for private dining and intimate events.
