The Bantian location of The Kitchen is unbelievably better than any other restaurant option in this area. The quality of the meats is very high, and I always try to get lunch here if I am working in the area. Chicken Parmigiana is excellent as...well as the pastas. I only eat here for lunch so I don't order the more heavy dishes. Please keep up the same standards and quality and I will always be a customer. The Futian location is a dinner favorite as well. It is in Coco Park.More

Thanks for your kind words John - it is great to hear you enjoy the chicken parmy - it is one of my favorites too! Quality of ingredients is very important to us and our Exec Chef; Bobby, certainly understands that so you should be...More

I had a prawn salad, while the food was decent and attentive staff, the restaurant had only two other tables occupied. The price with charges came to 108RMB without drinks which is more expensive than London for a salad. The interior is very basic, could...do with sprucing up.More

Visit the kitchen first 2 years ago, since then the interior isn't changed and begins to look bit out dated now. Food is still fine

The Kitchen offers a variety of western cuisine dishes as from Italian to steaks. Wine is served by glass which is great. Friendly service although little English is spoken. All in all, a recommendable place. Will return.

Not bad at all considering that Bantian is off the tourist beaten track. For those staying in elite garden hotel or Vienna hotel it is just a two minutes walk. The front of the shop is a little difficult to find as one needs to...go up the stairs to the first floor to find the place. Food is perfectly decent. I took chicken fajitas. The place operates as a bar too.More

This was my second visit to this restaurant and I, unfortunately, was disappointed only with my filet mignon. My first visit to this restaurant also left me disappointed with the filet mignon. For some reason they just can't get the filet right. Both times the...cut of the filet was too chewy. I thought it was just a fluke on my first visit but it seems like this will be the norm for the filet at this location. Every other item that I had chosen was very good. E.g. The French Onion soup was very delicious. The quesadillas, excellent. My Jack Daniels and coke very refreshing. My broccoli and carrots were good as well. For my dessert the Profiterolls were very tasty and big enough for two people. My server was very attentive and could understand and speak English which was a plus. The atmosphere was pleasant and quiet. I cherish being in a quiet restaurant where I can have a conversation without shouting. The Kitchen in FUTIAN was perfect in every aspect and will be my choice next time.More

Comfort food and drinks for Huawei (and other) expats. The bar/ restaurant is a safe haven from the indistinguishable and questionable culinary fare ubiquitous in Bantian.

Visited The Kitchen with some colleagues and everyone was very happy; some had been there several times before. The food & beer selection is very good, good veggie choice, too. Friendly staff with some English knowledge. Prices seem OK although of course pricey compared to...what the locals normally consume. It's on the floor above Pizza Hut; not that easy to find but once you've been there you know where to go. Would recommend this place!More

Very far from the city center, they did not tell me when I called and I mentioned where I was located, service was poor as well as the dishes, nothing special at all, It took an hour to find a taxi to go back to...my hotel. You will be disappointed also.More

I think it is rather unfair to criticise based on the location of our restaurant. It is located in the industrial suburb of Bantian to cater for those people living and working in that area – that’s what restaurants do! It is not up to...More
