“Quality local Asian dining experience….”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Subtle reds, low lighting and unobtrusive music set the right tone for a prime South Ken dining experience. Chinese, going on Vietnamese, spicy beef and baked cod are star turns. Good value food served by attentive waitresses and to finish a lychee lemonchello type cocktail server by the maitre 'd…..

“Excellent Oriental cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Headed for this restaurant in Abingdon Road just off High St Kensington. Warm atmosphere, buzzing on a Thursday night when we visited. Had a fragrant and spicy vegetable, jack fruit and tofu main. Partner had crispy chicken. Reasonably priced for the standard. Would recommend highly and return.

“One of the best dining experiences in Kensington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

If you appreciate fine Asian cuisine in a cool casual environment, The Naga Restaurant and Bar off High Street Kensington is a must.
On arrival, we were welcomed by the owner Tri and settled into the bar area for a couple of wicked pre dinner cocktails.
The restaurant is in an unusual atmospheric loft like space with tables both downstairs and up on a mezzanine under a light enhancing glass roof.
What a relief not to have to plough through pages and pages of pre prepared Asian fare.
At The Naga it is quality not quantity; creative pan Asian cuisine with strong influences from Vietnam.
Each dish is prepared and cooked to order and our dinner was delicious. I recommend the Chili Salt Prawn or Honey Glazed Spare Ribs for starters. We followed on with Aromatic Szechuan Duck with steaming hot wafer thin pancakes and Naga Black Cod. The produce was very fresh and the cooking light not oily.
The service throughout the evening was attentive with the dishes arriving at a comfortable dining rythm. The house red and white wines were excellent and complimented a thoroughly enjoyable good value for money dining experience. I'll be back.

“The staff make this a memorable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I ate here on the 11th October 2013 with a friend to celebrate his recent promotion. We almost missed the entrance but were drawn into an underground dining area decorated in soft colours with a hint of the far east The staff were professional, polite and very welcoming indeed. The menu was exquisite and the meal I had one of the best I have had in years! I hope to return there in the near future.

“A fiasco!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We have been to this restaurant many times over the last 6 months. The standard of the food is not of the quality we have experienced before. But it is good overall. Enjoyable.
Unfortunately, in the restaurant was a large party of 8 or 10, which steadily as the evening progressed the noise level from this table became noisier and noisier it sounded like a rowdy pub.The manager/stroke owner was joining in with drink and the noise. The noise became unbearable, we called him over and poiltely asked him to tone it down, so we could have pleasant evening, he was rude and aggressive he bent over "what do you want me to do" with spread out hands.
Want a rowdy pub atmosphere this is the place to go.Not very civilised.
