Review on The Art Kitchen
A fascinating and rather exotic venue that brings a taste of Thailand to Warwick. Its owners also run an artwork company and ever-changing examples of their wares can be seen hanging in the ground-floor dining room and the private space upstairs (aptly named the Drawing Room).
The front of the Art Kitchen is taken up with a casual café/bar that is popular for daytime nibbles and drinks, and the entire frontage can be opened up in fine weather. The kitchen offers its own take on Thai cuisine, with lots of witty gestures along the way - try the 'Art Kitchen Roll' (rice-paper wrapped spring roll), or one of the 'Liquid Bytes' (aka soups) such as tom yam goong.
Elsewhere, the signature dish is san nai ob (marinated fillet of beef roasted pink with oyster sauce), and the choice also extends to hot-and-sour asparagus and prawn salad, various curries, stir-fries and some quirky desserts including pandan and coconut pancakes and tropical fruit spring rolls. Express '123' menus do the business at lunchtime, and the concise global wine list includes 28 by the glass, with plenty to suit the spicy flavours of the food.
