"A decidedly odd meal, half of which I seemed to spend arguing with the food, criticising its appearance, its peculiar saucing and seasoning, its hanging out in the wrong company." READ REVIEW

"I'm not going to say that the Dock Kitchen is a duff restaurant or that Parle can't cook: it isn't and he can. But there seems to be a consistency problem, because on the day I went for lunch, it just wasn't at the level it has hit for other people." READ REVIEW

"I’m glad Dock Kitchen is totally anchored now, and am hoping it will stay that way for a while, because I think Steve Parle is a genius. The man is still so young... but his cooking is already oh so brilliant, there is still so much time ahead of him to evolve as a chef." READ REVIEW

"The atmosphere provoked by wonderful cooking was light and comfortable and we left in a Pickwickian mood, replete and garrulous, at one with a happy world. Only a really good dinner can do that for you." READ REVIEW

"The bottom line being that if I'm going to a pop-up restaurant I want it to be about the food, not the politics. Which is why I very much like the Dock Kitchen." READ REVIEW

"This is inspiring stuff – and judging by the surroundings and creative manifesto of The Dock project, it would have been a serious oversight to recruit anyone of a lesser calibre." READ REVIEW

"The subtle assembly possessed all the virtues of Indian home cooking and I longed immediately to order it again but knew that brill with fresh coconut, curry leaves, south Indian spices, tomatoes and squash was on its way." READ REVIEW
