Tom Aikens is one of the UK's most acclaimed and inspirational British chefs. His remarkable career took him to David Cavalier's in Battersea, Pierre Koffman's La Tante Clare, Pied-a-Terre and Joel Robuchon in Paris to name a few. At 26, Tom became the youngest British chef ever to be awarded two Michelin stars. He is dedicated to serving only the highest quality, ethically sourced ingredients and continually supports The Environmental Justice Foundation to raise awareness of illegal 'pirate' fishing and diminishing fish stocks. Tom works closely with various charities including: the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Campaign, Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign and School Food Matters, where he teaches young children basic cooking skills. He has also written three books: Cooking (2006), Fish (2008) and Easy (2011), and has made several appearances on television.

With restaurants in London, Istanbul and Birmingham, Tom’s Kitchen serves British favourites and comfort food classics in a relaxed and informal environment. 

With an emphasis on where food comes from and how it is grown, Tom’s Kitchen is dedicated to using UK-based suppliers and local producers, with restaurants located in Birmingham, Chelsea, st Katharine Docks, Canary Wharf, Somerset house and Istanbul. In addition, Tom’s Kitchen Deli located adjacent to the restaurants in Canary Wharf, St. Katharine Docks, Somerset House and HMS Belfast, offer an array of homemade seasonal sandwiches, soups, hotpots, salads and sweet treats, all perfect for food lovers on the go.
