Sonny's Kitchen

94 Church Road, Barnes, LONDON, SW13 0DQ

2 rosettes

Sonny's, part restaurant, part food store, has occupied its premises in a parade of shops for a generation. Chefs may come and go, but constant updating and reinvention keep the place ahead of the game, and changes in décor move with the times. It's comfortable, relaxing and welcoming, with a sensibly concise menu offering enough variety to keep its regulars returning again and again. Classic ideas might take in home-cured salmon with endive and dill, or linguine vongole, followed by duck à l'orange, or grilled sea bream fillet with anchovy butter. Standards are consistently high, as is quality, seen in starters of braised ox tongue with Charlotte potatoes, beetroot and horseradish, and a salad of avocado, smoked eel and bacon, and main courses like roast poussin with melted onions, thyme and garlic leaves. A few pizzas and steaks extend the range even further, and puddings end on a satisfying note: vanilla crème brûlée with griottine cherries and Kirsch, or rice pudding with rhubarb compôte.
