Hi, I am Rajiv and food is my passion - my art is creating a delicious and surprising menu that will overwhelm your every sense. Having been raised in the surroundings of mountains & rivers in Nepal, I grew up using the fresh herbs & spices for cooking that were often obtained through foraging. I started cooking from a very early age due to living in a large extended family. I learned to cook by observing my mom, aunts, uncles & grandma. Now living in the Big Smoke, I want to share my childhood memories of laughing around the table, munching on spicy & delicious food with my fellow Londoners, the same as I do with my family and friends; hence the birth of Rajiv's Kitchen.

We really enjoyed the experience and Rajiv's food was really nice and each dish was unique in its own way. The 9 courses were filling and showcased a variety of different ingredients. I was on the vegan menu and felt it was just as creative as the main menu. The setting was lovely, the staff were very friendly, and we felt well looked after. Would definitely reccomend booking this experience.

Had a fantastic time dining at Rajiv's kitchen. All 9 courses were fantastic. The menu really well thought out and most importantly absolutely delicious and fantastic value for money. Top notch cooking, from a lovely bloke, in a great location. Can't recommend enough. We'll definitely be back for more. Shout out to the waiting staff who were friendly and attentive throughout, serving up amazing cocktails.

We really enjoyed Rajiv’s supper club experience, and our favorite was the chilli chicken momos served at the beginning by. The food started being served abt 45 mins after the start time (we got there at 7 pm) but we didn’t mind, as the time between each course wasn’t much & we were never left hungry. Also, Rajiv and his team coming and meeting everyone before the start of the event was a nice touch, wish they also came out at the end before dessert so we could thank them in person (some people left before dessert). I would do this again and recommend to friends. Only suggestion for improvement is that we (only me and my husband) were seated at the bar-like high chairs (without backs) on a table while everyone else had a proper table with proper chairs. I should have perhaps mentioned to them about my back problem when booking the experience. That was the only slight disappointment but I guess they had a full house that day & the tables weren’t enough. Overall, I would recommend it - the venue was nice (it was just pub but low lit, good decor & nice inside, didn’t smell of alcohol/spilled beer badly the way some pubs do) Would recommend it!

The tasting menu started out strong with some spicy momos, we got excited about things to come. There followed a large dollop of a tasty chicken curry missing its rice counterpart, and some interesting vegetarian concoctions I can only describe as filler. Some of the "tastings" were mixed up without warning. It was a worthy effort that could be improved by more communicative service staff, more complete tastings ( not just a table spoon full of chicken curry , that just tastes incomplete) and an appearance by the chef would help immensely tie together the food and its provenance and story. We are there partly for the meal, but also to connect it with the chef and his story. It was a shame he was no where to be seen.
