This is my favorite place in East Dulwich. It's creative, innovating and fantastic. Food is always excellent, service is cordial, helpful, knowledgeable and perfectly amicable. This restaurant has a tremendous potential. Its creator has great ideas and hires great chefs. It's a great platform for those who want to demonstrate their great kitchen skills. Menu changes every three months and everytime you go it's phenomenal. The wine pairing or their wine menu is fantastic. I will keep going and treat myself with good food and ambiance
I rarely feel compelled to write reviews so overwhelmed are we these days by requests and surveys BUT the most recent experience at Platform 1 was breathtakingly good. Greeted cheerfully as ever by Chloe, the wines were as intriguing and delicious as ever but the latest iteration in the kitchen was mind blowingly good. Get there while you can, these lads are going places!
The food and wine was incredible as was the service. We had an excellent experience at Platform 1 and will definitely be going back again!
Fantastic pop up concept. Fodder was amazing. Chloe and her team do the rest.
Platform 1 provides a kitchen and audience for young chefs with grand ambitions. So you get a Michelin style tasting menu for half the price you might otherwise pay for this quality. The chefs get a chance to show off their skills and hopefully make the step from here to running their own restaurant. The chefs change every few months. The current team are Nick Ross & Max de Nahlik of Oxalis. We came on a friday night and tried their tasting menu and accompanying selection of wines from the sommelier. The cooking was all very good, especially the handmade chorizo and the braised baby lettuce. Although I won't recommend anything because they may well have changed the menu and even the chefs before too long. The serving staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The other notable thing here is that the wines are all a little bit different. Turkish, Austrian, Argentinian. This isn't a gimmick it is a nice way to experience things you wouldn't normally encounter. Which is why we opted for the 'wine flight' a different glass selected for each course. Well worth it in my view.
We were surprised that only the tasting menu was on offer, there was no a la carte. The menu contained some good elements but a few dishes that really didn't work. I was looking forward to the first course of beetroot, goats cheese and horseradish as I love all of those ingredients, unfortunately the horseradish over powered everything and made it difficult to eat without stinging the back of your nose and making your eyes and nose run - not one for a first date! The egg, liver and bacon was a nice surprise and worked well as did the scallop and chirizo, the chicken too was good. The donut and coffee fredo to finish the meal were disappointing, the donut was heavy, over cooked and cold, the fredo was good. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly, although they did try to add a few extra drinks to the bill. Overall I'm pleased I've tried it, we had a good evening but not sure I'd rush back.
A really interesting concept supporting up and coming chefs for a set period of time, Platform 1 allows you to taste, learn and explore. Passion for the food, wine and concept comes across in all parts of the experience from the carefully curated wine list to the unusual ingredients. Hearing about the who, why, how and where around our food and wine really enhanced the experience. The 5 course tasting menu comes out slowly and portions are super- tasty but a little dainty: perfect for a lingering enjoyable evening and great value. The accompanying 'wine flight' (a different glass with every course) is excellent value and perfectly complimented the food - highly recommended. We will definitely be back as soon as the menu changes. A perfect evening: thank you.
Platform 1 in the heart of East Dulwich is a great concept that gives you you the opportunity to try amazing food prepared by young up and coming Michelin star chefs at a fraction of the cost of a Michelin star restaurant. Fodder presented us with delicious food of the very highest standard using local and UK products. The food was exceptional and the wine flight was magnificent and well thought through. The staff were warm and welcoming, polite and knowledgeable. This is a must for foodies and wine loves alike, I can't recommend it highly enough, give it a try you won't be disappointed.
The £35pp 5 course tasting menu was delicious and amazing value for the quality of the cooking and ingredients. There was even a 6th surprise course thrown in! Mixed reviews on the drinks. The old fashioned in particular wasn't fantastic, and the wine is quite pricey, however we chose one of the cheaper reds and had no complaints in the end as the quality shone through. The staff were brilliant, friendly and very knowledgeable around the menu. Service slowed down a little towards the end of the meal, I think due to the kitchen rather than front of house, so this could be an issue on a busier night. Generally the whole meal went at a relaxed, unhurried pace. Will definitely visit again.
I have been in the restaurant many times as it is one of my favorite places in East Dulwich. The food is creative, beautiful presented, and delicious. It has never disappointed. The staff is knowledgeable, amicable, and work very hard to please the customers. Their wine list always has surprises; I for instance never drink the same wine when dine out and their wine list always has something new and different. Very good place and for the work and price in their menu this place is a jewell in the London.
