About Village Kitchen
The Village Kitchen in London’s Walthamstow is the brainchild of Spiros Ragavelas, a man with a passion for cooking and in excess of twenty years experience at the centre of the restaurant scene. The Village Kitchen on Orford Road has long roots, opening back in 1997 and having since established itself as the home of some of the capital’s most innovative international food in E17 and beyond.

Finding great food in Walthamstow is getting easier and easier as the area gives way to artisanal coffee places, sushi joints and a smattering of higher-end restaurants. Despite this wash of smart new eateries, however, the Village Kitchen on Orford Road has stood firm, offering some of the capital’s finest, affordably priced international dishes in a dining room which treads the line between chic and traditional. This blend of old and new is in evidence on the menu too, with a Saturday brunch menu offering perennially popular favourites like eggs benedict and salmon bagels sat alongside zeitgeisty morsels like avocado, bacon and poached egg and chorizo scrambled eggs.
For those that choose to visit London’s Village Kitchen, out east in Walthamstow, dinner is particular treat. Under the careful guidance of Spiros Ragavelas, the kitchen are spinning plates of classically prepared international dishes like pan seared pigeon breast, Thai fishcakes and tandoori chicken breast. For diners with a sweet tooth, the team do an excellent line in desserts, the summer fruit Eton mess is the kind of moreish treat that pairs nicely with a glass of white wine on a hot day while the cheese board is an excellent option in the winter. The Village Kitchen is open daily for dinner and for lunch Thursday and Friday and all day at the weekend.
Not busy when we arrived, only 2 of us, but it took over 30 mins to get a jug of water and bottle of wine to us. Our starter arrived 15mins later, mine was unpleasant (I wasn't charged for it). My friend's marinated beetroot tasted shop bought/prepared. The mains lacked seasoning. Staff pleasant but good poor
The food was very good. We waited a while because there was a big party in the back room but the waitresses apologize and were very attentive.
Good food and excellent service. Fish dish was slightly salty, but the others were all very nice. Good value deal with the two courses for £17.
Excellent food and service as always. Could maybe give a few more vegetables with the roast dinners
I really did enjoyed the food very much especially the mains, steak was beautifully. We did feel that the service was a little too slow.
Not as good as we remember. Breakfast disappointing value: one sausage, one bacon, one egg, toast extra for £9. All tasty enough, but nothing special. Service friendly but slow.
Food was good, but several items were off the menu such that my vegetarian friend struggled to make a choice. The service was mediocre and rather curt.
Over priced for what it is. Burgers are affordable but everything else is too expensive. Prefer the more atmospheric pubs in the area of the village.
Great food and atmosphere. Staff very helpful and polite. Overall great night out.
Took my mum here for a Sunday lunch. Very good.
After sitting down we weren't even offered a drink after 15 minutes so we gave up and left. This was our third attempt to support this local business and we've given up now.
