[We] shared lamb biryani, cooked in a clay pot sealed with dough to keep moisture and its wonderful aromas in. It was a superb dish, the lamb flakingly tender and (…) beautifully spiced (…) We liked too that it came with dishes of rose petals, almonds and coriander to mix in to taste, bringing a little variety to each mouthful…

Lucy admired the properly charcoal-scarred blackness of the skin on her salmon and the dainty pinkness of the interior. A side order of greens, spinach and celery, was “as fresh as the lark ascending”…

This otherwise remote but surprisingly pretty place has the air of an upstart River Café about it – and perhaps not surprisingly, given that chef Stevie Parle used to work there, as well as at Petersham Nurseries Café and Moro…

I had the rabbit for my main. This was good – the meat was sweet and well cooked – not too tough and springy and in an old-school cream and double mustard sauce. Nice thick bit of bacon in amongst it. A comforting and tangy dish…

Service was lovely, and it’s undeniably a great room to sit in, but the kitchen comes across as being way too pleased with itself to feel the love…

I’m not going to say that the Dock Kitchen is a duff restaurant or that Parle can’t cook: it isn’t and he can. But there seems to be a consistency problem, because on the day I went for lunch, it just wasn’t at the level it has hit for other people…

The atmosphere provoked by wonderful cooking was light and comfortable and we left in a Pickwickian mood, replete and garrulous, at one with a happy world. Only a really good dinner can do that for you…

Once front of house is up to speed, Dock Kitchen will be unmissable. I intend to go back before Stevie Parle pops up in some swanky West End address…

For mains we had grilled rabbit on a pile of puy lentils, brightened with a carefully balanced vinaigrette. Even better was an onglet, one of the great if undervalued steak cuts, that had been long marinated then grilled…

Brill with fresh coconut, curry leaves, south Indian spices, tomatoes and squash was on its way. This too was a wholly successful, rather wonderful dish…

This to me is hardly a bargain for food that varied between ordinary and flawed. The place seemed busy (this was December) but based on this meal I am baffled by its popularity…
