Kurobuta Chelsea


After a successful spell as a pop-up, Scott Hallsworth's restaurant turned permanent in fashionable Kings Road. Kurobuta is an intimate izakaya (traditional Japanese pub) featuring unfussy Robata-grilled dishes, tempura, sushi and more substantial plates – there’s also a great range of sakis on offer.

What happens if you take traditional Japanese style food and add a bit of Western flair to it? Thankfully for me (and my taste buds), Scott Hallworth, the master chef behind Kurobuta Chelsea restaurant on Kings Road in London, has crafted a perfect "East Meets West" culinary concept.

The restaurant is designed to allow guests to talk, relax, and enjoy a drink or two, each which compliments...more

The drinks are great too, and the ambiance is cozy and dark, so no one...more
