The receptionist made us feel straight away not very welcome. Avoiding eye contact to tell us we have to eat quickly when the restaurant was probably 10% capacity. Fortunately her waitress did a good job (except forgetting to order one main course). Very dark inside....More

Really appalling service. Filthy menus. Food 4/10 at best. Waited 25 minutes to try to order a beer then gave up. Such a shame as the original restaurant across the road served decent food in a nice atmosphere.

Nice setting, good tasty food and decent portion sizes, terrible service provided by what looked like schoolkids.

We had some of the best fried chicken and prawns ever. The chicken wings and the baby chicken were also fantastic. We also ordered rice and some dragon rolls, miso soup and short rib tacos. A must visit.

I'm usually a fun of this restaurant and every time friends are in town I take them there, but I had a terrible experience last Saturday. The service was a disaster; a couple of unexperienced teenagers servicing the tables in rotation, which means that we...More

It is my first time in the Chelsea restaurant, but the second at Kurobuta, and once again sadly the experience is only average. Service was a bit of a let down this time: we had a table for 4 booked and - after sitting down...More

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
