Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The combination of retro chic decoration – the Tiki theme of the downstairs bar is reflected in the 1960s’ magazines that cover the walls – and Thai specialities lends Kitsch Inn a distinctive identity. The menus, based on Mad magazines, set the tone for a quirky dining experience, yet the attention to detail in the cooking and presentation of the dishes ensures that it is not a mere novelty. From the rich starters to the small but delicious desserts, lead chef Tommy Leskin presents a selection of familiar Thai dishes that have a consistent, subtle and spicy quality. The chicken with chili jam elegantly balances sweet and hearty, the jungle curry has the necessary kick, and the sharing platters – which bundle together highlights from the starters – are a generous showcase of the restaurant’s versatility. The atmosphere is laid-back, and staff have an obvious enthusiasm for the Inn’s personality, which thanks to its design works as both a location for an intimate meal and a more raucous party gathering, either way you’ll see plenty of professionalism and dedication at play. Relaxed and inviting, Kitsch Inn offers a playful and unique evening.
