New restaurant at Taj 51 Buckingham Gate

We are delighted to announce the opening of the new ‘Kona’ restaurant  at Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites & Residences. Hopefully to soon become one of the capital’s top London restaurants in 2015.  As a little treat we have a special offer for any dinner reservations made until 31st March 2015.

Kona will offer modern European food using the freshest ingredients, many locally sourced and beautifully presented. Chefs David and Thomas present a varied menu of skilfully prepared dishes which will appeal to those looking for a more refined dining experience in a very relax and homely atmosphere.

Kona also has a superb wine list and a selection of speciality Gin cocktails as the signature drink.

Kona offers an innovative interpretation of the colours, flavours and vibrancy of Southern European cuisine, marrying contemporary styling with traditional cooking techniques from Côte d’Azur to the coasts of the Mediterranean and Ligurian seas. The freshest and finest ingredients and predominantly sustainable organic produce is served in an elegant environment with homely, welcoming warmth.

Modern and forward, yet etymologically rooted in the Proto-Indo-European roots of Sanskrit and Latin, the name Kona denotes comfort and cosiness and celebrates the provenance and proximity of the cuisine sources. It is exotic and personal, while balancing luxurious indulgence with delightfully fresh simplicity and extravagance in flavour.

Kona also serves the celebrated 24 Karat Gold Afternoon Tea, an opulent experience featuring 24K Brut Champagne and decadent delights with edible gold flakes. The 24 Karat Gold Afternoon Tea is served from 15:00 to 17:30 subject to reservations made 24 hours in advance.
