Smollensky's Metro Review

Located in a listed Georgian building beside Hammersmith tube station, this American style eaterie is part of a successful chain of restaurants across London. Serving a selection of hefty burgers, and specialising in steaks, Smollensky’s is a carnivore’s idea of meat-heaven, yet there is also a substantial choice of vegetarian options available, including huge salads.

On our visit, most diners were sitting al fresco, taking advantage of the last of the summer rays. An impressive spiral staircase lead us to an inside area with red leather seats and soft lighting.

Smollensky’s fun, informal vibe is implemented right from the outset by smiley waitresses and 80s classic hits: I couldn’t help but nod my head in rhythm to “What a Feeling” while I munched on my starter of lightly battered calamari (£5.75). Piri piri chicken skewers (£5.50) were also a good choice, slightly spicy and served with an aioli dip.

Food is essentially global but mostly American with a Mediterranean slant. My dinner date and I both opted for one of the many cuts of steak on the menu, and were happy with our choice and the speedy service from a beaming waitress. Steaks come with coleslaw, fries and a choice of sauces, and portions are generous so make sure you work up an appetite.

To follow was a Chocolate Mud Pie with vanilla ice cream, which was not home-made but nevertheless hit that chocolate craving, and a bargain at £3.50.

Smollensky’s Hammersmith is no Gordon Ramsay - the place lacks any sign of pretension, but what it does, it does well. With an extensive, reasonably priced and varied menu sure to satisfy toddlers and parents alike, it is a place that’s great to go for a fun, fuss-free meal, without burning a hole in your wallet. And if it’s another Margherita you’re after before making your way home, there’s a bar downstairs- playing equally loud classics- that can knock you up a cocktail in no time at all.
