Was lovely 😊 I chose it due to the closeness to my house and had noticed they had some vegan 🌱 options for my friend. I had the classic burger that was cooked excellently and my friend had the bleeding vegan burger which was fantastic and even had a smoky bbq taste

I've been to Smok'd a few times since it opened and the quality of the food has declined steadily, this most recent visit being particularly poor. Kingston has been crying out for a decent BBQ restaurant for a long time and when Smok'd first opened it answered that need, until it gets back to the menu and quality of its time of launch I won't be returning.

One of my favourite places for US-style barbeque in London. The burgers always look great but we've never been able to resist the ribs! A great option for the carnivorous.

Had a great time. Been a few times before to this location as well as Whitley and back at the pub on the corner behind edgeware road.
Great pulled pork bbq burger, wife had the ribs with kimchi and sweet potato.
Unfortunately, 4 hours later she was being very sick and toilet bound. She had nothing else to eat other than some toast in the morning so unfortunately it had to have been the food. She’s never had trouble with food or here before so it is bad luck but kinda put a negative end to a birthday lunch. This is a one off I’m sure and I will be back but just being honest about my experience this time around.

We’ve been during the week for evening specials and on a Saturday night for a meal. And now we’ve been twice for Sunday lunch. We’ve never had a single piece of food here that wasn’t utterly delicious! And if I thought my heart could take it, I’d be here every Sunday because that dinner was exceptional! The brisket as part of a Sunday lunch is perfection. And the beer’s pretty good too!! My parents came with us last time they were here and now it’s the only place my Dad wants to go when they visit. Our friends who joined us last time feel the same.

Love it here. Nice modern urban kitchen feel. Food is great and the £10 deal is great value. House wine is good quality and part of the deal. Staff are friendly and attentive. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

If this place was 20% cheaper I think I’d visit every week. The food was great and I loved the decor. Was only lacking a reduction in price.

We love Smok'd - fun for a couple; an early bite with the kids; and with friends before Crack Comedy. BUT, if you are over 5'5", avoid the high tables. The chairs are really uncomfortable! That's my only gripe - good food; nice staff; and a good atmosphere.

Would recommend wholeheartedly. With the venue next door it is pretty noisy, but for a team event really good. Food was amazing - I'd go back for the brisket alone.

I’m a big bbq fan and a regularly smoke meat, and I’m not sure how authentic this is. The atmosphere was good and nice cosy feel with the kitchen open in front of u. I had the brisket which comes in a thick gravy that was quite sickly (never had brisket like this before and I’ve eaten a lot), another person had the large rib platter that some bits were tasty but the items like the baby back ribs were tough and overly glazed. The last meal was the pulled pork burger which was actual really tasty, the mac and cheese was also really good.
There were lots of ppl having a good time, seemed to be enjoying their food, but for me personally it’s was far from a smoked bbq meal.

It's a nice spot just off Kingston town centre offering great BBQ ribs and burgers. It has a nice pub too with great varities of whiskey.

The best BBQ I’ve had for a long time. We always bring family and friends here and recently also came here for Sunday lunch. They even bbq the joints of meat and they are AMAZING! This time we came on a Monday for Rib night - a bargain and just as delicious as always. We will be back!

The place and setting is lovely. Unfortunately for me I was not able to eat as I suffer from food allergies and they were not able to cater for me. The Chef has not considered this.

The food was fantastic.
Service was fine although one negative was that they forgot our order, however when we highlighted this they were very quick to rectify this & in fact then removed the starter from the bill so very impressed with their resolution.

Food was good although it did lack ambience. Would have enhanced the experience is they played some background music. The most disappointing element of the night was the service which was extremely slow, getting orders wrong and forgetting others.

This is the first time I've been to SMOK'D. I can't believe we had such a great pub/restaurant on our doorstep, all the reviews were spot on, the food was great and the service excellent. The dishes were so well made and the whiskeys numerous, we will definately be going back for more! Well done all staff!

White chocolate cocktail tasted very strange, not at all sweet as the waitress said.
Limited choice in pudding menu if you didn't like overly sweet food

Mains were fab
