Kota Restaurant & Bar Review

 

Kota is nestled in Eddington, a new sustainable district in the north west of Cambridge and about a 15 minutes bike ride to the city centre. It sits within the Hyatt Centric Cambridge hotel complex and Turing Locke Aparthotel.  It features a co-working coffee shop space serving coffee from Saint Espresso, a covered courtyard and an indoor restaurant with bar area. They also have a seasonal terrace opened during the warmer months offering views of the city of Cambridge. 

Kota serves up a nice relaxed vibe 

With a distinctly Scandi feel, soft wood furnishings crossed with industrial style exposed ceiling and beams, there is a lovely mix of booth-style seating along with window tables and a nice relaxed vibe.  It can be hired for a group or event with lots of flexibility around set up.

What’s on the menu 

The staff are friendly and helpful, taking time to explain any details on the menu and highlight what not to miss out on. There is a focus on local and independent suppliers as well as being as sustainable as possible.  

We enjoyed coal baked camembert with truffle honey & pine nuts served with chargrilled sourdough (£8) and Jerusalem artichoke, burnt apple, pickled blackberries with chicory (£7) . The Camembert was incredible, the truffle honey stole the show. 

Mains were grilled catch of the day, lentil dhal, KOTA kachumber, naan (£22) and dry aged beef burger, Monterey Jack, KOTA burger relish & sauce, gherkins, salad (£14.50) Really tasty and both dishes cooked on their signature wood fire. 

Finally for dessert we enjoyed stewed apple, oat crumble with creme anglaise (£8) and dark chocolate, kirsch cherry torte with pistachio ice cream (£8) both of which were perfectly balanced by their respective ingredients list.  If anything, the stewed apple dish was a little on the large side but great for sharing or saving leftovers for the next day! 

We enjoyed a cocktail each, the espresso martini being one of the best we have ever tasted and would highly recommend. Their menu is extensive, divided into herb, spice, fruit and classics,  and the staff are attentive and willing to find something to suit your palette. 

Overall a truly delicious food experience, one we can highly recommend. Perfect for a brunch get together or a more intimate or special evening dinner. There really is something for everyone on the menu.
