Kitchin on Caledonia Street turns around the reputation of the ‘all you can eat’ diner delivering excellent value at lunchtime – high quality for a low price. A recommendation from Lisa Tang led to lunch there on Sunday. It is a big (indeed huge) 100 seat restaurant opposite Tesco and the Premier Inn. There are several cooking stations arranged in the centre of the restaurant with buffet style service. Some oriental Chinese dishes are wokked fresh.
I had Indian, which was very good for the price – excellent tandoori wings, keema aloo etc. Fran had a freshly wokked stir fry which was very good. We couldn’t quite make the dessert counter – which had a fantastic selection of suger rush inducing childhood favourites – including jelly, fizzy ufos, m&ms, rhubarb and custard sweets etc. The cocktail list was long and the wine list promising for the price.
It was pretty empty Sunday lunchtime, when the price was £6.95, evenings cost more – Thurs-Sat £14.95, Sun to Wed £12.95 a head, all you can eat. At £6.95 it is excellent value, at £14.95 fair – you get better at Royal Thai or Drummond Street. Lisa says that the manager would do a discount for people who mention the website – but i couldn’t get hold of him on the day so give it a go. Website with contact details etc here. This is going to be very popular as Kings Cross stokes up so get in early.
