One Kensington is a new brunch to dinner dining venue which replaces Zaika, a high end Indian, on High Street Ken. It opened about 3 months ago and already has some serious competition as Pavilion, a not dissimilar place opened pretty soon after. I am not too sure about now well designed the room here as the bar seems to take over quite a lot of the main dining space and thus is very imposing.
I had 2 courses from the set lunch menu (2 courses £20), the mackerel and the lemon sole, while others ordered from the a la carte which included a wide range of dishes including salads, pasta dishes, steaks and other mains.
As they were slightly late setting up our table they kindly gave us a dessert platter for free, which was a nice touch. These were perhaps the stars of the show, the pastry chef here clearly knows want they are doing.
This meal was pretty average, although I would probably still go back as there is a lack of non-chain brassieres in the area. I still thought Pavilion was better; however, its menu is more limited.
