Gastrology bloggers dined courtesy of The Table Lamp.
The Table Lamp delights with modern Asian fusion cuisine in ornate surrounds.
The dining room seeks to transport diners to Asia with Balinese art and beautiful birdcages.
Golden Whiskers Scallops
The Asian-influenced menu has Western touches and showcases Head Chef Alex Chin's fusion cooking which has benefited from his experiences whilst working in top kitchens in the UK and Australia.
Pumpkin and truffle soup
The pumpkin and truffle soup was the highlight of our dinner at The Table Lamp. Particularly noteworthy for its fragrance and complexity, the soup was appetisingly laced with truffle oil and had a silky smooth consistency.
The prawns were another stunning dish. Very fresh and cooked beautifully, the prawns were sufficiently seasoned and flavoursome. They had also benefited from their time on the charcoal grill and achieved the perfect degree of outer charring.
Fried ice cream
The Table Lamp’s take on the traditional fried ice cream was delicious. The ice cream was coated in a crisp crumb coating that was ethereally light and laced with mango and raspberry sauce. It was a pleasant end to our meal.
With surrounds conducive for enjoying a few rounds of their delectable cocktails, The Table Lamp surprises with exquisite food best enjoyed when shared with others.
