Given Kitchen & Bar

Paddington

Given Kitchen & Bar is a slick little Pan Asian diner from the folk behind popular Paddington Vietnamese eatery NGON.

By day, the morning crew dish up a delicious and Asian-flavoured brunch menu with dishes such as Ubi Mocha Waffles, Bubble tea Panna Cotta, Hangover Fried Rice and Karaage Chicken or Banh Mi Burgers.

In the evening, the menu takes diners on a foodie's trip through south-east Asia, with a selection of delicious fusion dishes that derive from different cultures and cuisines. Seating is either in the chic long space, lined with a red banquette and adorned with Asian art and craftworks or on the pavement outside (where dogs are welcome to join their owners).
