“New Food a Revelation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Went here with my Son David (19, Fussy eater) on the off chance before he got a train from Euston.
The Food was exquisite and flavoured in a way I've never had before the surroundings were very African and beautiful the proprietor was informative but gave us space too.

I can't recommend enough go try this place you'll either love it or hate it (i hope you'll love it we did).

Go on try something new you may just surprise yourself

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We went to African Gallery Kitchen looking for something different to the other restaurants in Drummond St. It was a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious and we enjoyed the friendliness and the information about the food, and the African decorations. Food was spicy, and serving sizes were plentiful. Must comment on how clean and well presented the premises are kept.

“Lovely, quirky little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I was in London for work and popped into the African Gallery Kitchen to get a take away, the owner was very helpful, advising me on different dishes. It is clear he is very passionate about his food and that shows in the tastiness of the dishes.

This place is tiny but full of character and I much prefer to eat somewhere like this than a chain with no soul!
I would recommend it as a different place to go which will be tasty, well priced and you'll probably come away having learnt something about African food too.

“Wonderful. Wonderful!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Although only 4 stars this is actual four and a half stars! This is a tiny place that serves wonderful, tasty and delicious 'home cooking' It is not a 'fine dining experience' but the food is amazing. The are complaints in these reviews that the food is Pre-heated from frozen. In many places that would be an indication of careless short-cuts. But at the Gallery Kitchen it is a sign if quality and care. This food has been cooked with great skill and then is waiting be served 'fresh'. For such a tiny place (there was room for just nine people when I went, and no kitchen!) it means a good range on the menu. And... the tasty little nibbles (herb carrots) and complementary coconut/pea with spice balls were sensational, simple extras. Please don't visit African Gallery Kitchen. It is very small and, if you are there, I won't be able to get in!
