I really cannot understand all the good reviews for this place. I went there with my partner and my son (10 years) because we read very good reviews on internet. We are Italian and we know that good food is! However, you do not have to think we cannot appreciate not italian food. We have lived in UK for more... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Checked this place out after finding it on trip advisor, the food was really good and the owner clearly passionate and knowledgable about his food. Yes the food is cooked off site then microwaved but is really tasty, only down side was this made the plantain fritters a little chewy, that aside is well worth a visit for some unusual... More

A wide selection of fish, lamb, beef and vegetarian dishes, unusual starters and desserts, all of which will be explained to you by the charming and knowledgeable owner, Antonio, who has... More

We took a trip to London the weekend beginning 28th June, we spent ages looking for a Caribbean restaurant that didn't cost that much and we stumbled across this little beauty.

We've been in London for about five weeks now, and one of my only regrets is that we didn't visit the African Kitchen Gallery until our trip was nearly over. This tiny restaurant has some of the best food we've had here, and hands-down the best service we've had anywhere. The chef/part-owner, Antonio, is charming and warm, and we spent... More
