My brother is not from London and said he wanted to go to Kitchin N1 in Kings Cross he kept going on about it on the 10/2/17 we went. He was having a good time food was nice cold but he was happy. Me and my partner got up leaving him with our 1 year and 6 months baby we got back and was told a staff member said to keep her quiet I was upset up let it go.

I am like everyone else i don't like a screaming child but my daughter made a sound and because i was cutting up her food and must have been too slow just as i was gonna give it to her she moan.

A staff member leaned across the bar and told me to control my child. I was so upset him shouting that out. 1st she's a baby they make noise. 2nd she wasn't continuing to do it as soon as i gave her food she was quiet. 3rd there was others laughing loud and 1 lady when she laughed she screamed he never told her to keep it down.

I didn't want to continue shouting from my chair to the bar we was starting to make a scene and him being an employee should have tried also I walked to the bar and said: Your very rude its clear you don't have a child, he said he did, I was shocked he should understand children like to express themselves.

He told me to calm down i said to him excuse me I'm not shouting or searing at you I'm staying calm he should have approached us in a different manner I work in retail and I'm a deputy manager so I've seen children kicking off hear is what he should have done.

Hello is everything ok addressing the parent waiting for a reply look at the child and said is that you making all that noise

acknowledging to the parent you can hear the child then say my little 1 is loud like you making the aware there child is loud in a friendly way instead of shouting out from the bar.

My partner came over and said your attitude is bad there are lots of people being loud and continued talking to him I had to jump in and say excuse me are you the boss or the owner when he said no I was shocked your a nobody making allot off fuss for nothing.

I went off looking for the manager he was more relaxed and said sorry for his staff

Its ashame how one staff member can make you feel like you just wanna leave

Summary - Kids will be kids if your child is making noise continously I understand talking to the parent but don't shout at us or give us dirty looks and tell us to calm down when you started the problem my daughter is not the quietest child but in no way was she screaming the place down. If you have young children don't go to this place it spoiled my brothers birthday

WE WILL NEVER GO AGAIN

Worst experience ever, staff were shameful and rude. No essence of customer service whatsover, food was terrible and not worth the price. Misleading website, with one price on tne website and different price at the door. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

This is probably our umpteenth trip to Kitchin and they just keep on improving the place. I was very surprised that they have actually introduced a grilled beef and chicken and beef bbq section, european style. If you love meat like me, go for the tandoori section. The tandoori rivals the best in london and you can have as much as you want. The seafood section boasts chilled oysters, chilled prawns and a whole baked cod, fresh. Everything is still done fresh. My kids just love the dessert section, no one restaurant in London has that much available at one time, let alone buffet. Always recommended

Wow, this is a really flashy place. I did not know it was here in Kings Cross and a colleague recommended it for dinner as she takes her family here a lot.

What I liked straight away was the fact that you can see the chefs cooking, the kitchen is right there in the centre. I let the kids have what they wanted, mostly pizza, pasta and desserts. i went for the chinese/ thai , which I think is as good as any in Chinatown. The hot wings in the starter section were tasty as well. i fact everything was nice. No complaints and reasonably priced.

I attended a friends birthday bash here last night. I'd like to leave some comments.

1) Plenty of tasty international food, about 80 items.

2) Just grab a plate and take what you like.

3) No limits to the amount you can eat.

4) Probably the only one in Central London. There are other buffet restaurants in Central but the ones in Camden are actually more expensive and dont have as much variety. the ones in piccadilly/oxford serve oriental dishes.

5) Cheap at 15.99 per person. I was at Wembley last week and we paid 14.99 for about 20 items.

Wah. This place very nice one. My tour of London not complete without dinner in the famous 'Kitchin N1' in King's Cross. The stir fry very nice, all sweet desserts also good. Our whole bus of people come from airport come hungry but leave full. A1 food, I think one day in Malaysia they must open one branch.Thanks Kitchin N1!

Just a quick review - I feel that this buffet restaurant offers really good food for the £7.99 lunch price. I'd recommend it.

I took the family to this place for lunch today. It is a large buffet restaurant in Kings Cross, just across the road from the station. It was quite busy but we managed to secure a table as i did not want to miss out on the Sunday roast. The international buffet is laid out around the kitchen which is in the centre of the restaurant. We worked our way around the starters, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Italian and of course the roast section which had whole chicken and leg of lamb with potatoes and gravy. By the time we got to the dessert section we were really full but managed to get some chocolate desserts in. All in, a really good meal and not expensive at all.

We visited this buffet restaurant as part of our tour of central london. It is a really huge buffet restaurant in Kings Cross and has more than 100 food items from all over the world, according to our tour guide. We worked our way around the buffet, there was a generous variety of vegetarian and meat items available. my fsvourite was the BBQ grill and fresh tandoori grill. Yes- the chef really cooks it in front of you. Massive desserts and salads as well. and very tasty.
