Restaurant Review: Kamado Kitchen Morzine

It’s Saturday evening and you’re looking to devour some delicious Pan Asian cuisine in Morzine. There’s a couple of places that we would recommend to eat at but on this occasion we chose the pleasure of Kamado Kitchen in Morzine.

Underneath our Carlina Apartments

Located just below the Pleney Telecabine and underneath the Carlina apartments this cute cafe/bar by day and cosy restaurant by night is perfectly located for easy access by foot. There are outside tables and chairs, seating up to around 12 people and the recently renovated restaurant space allows for around 10-12 people to eat inside.

The Ambience

Walking into the restaurant your eyes are immediately drawn to the colourful fake foliage and neon ‘Kamado Kitchen’ sign. The decor is modern and the open plan bar and kitchen give it a welcoming, friendly and exotic feel. As the restaurant and kitchen are smaller thGyozas with soy sauce and lime edamame beans with chillian the average restaurant pre-booking is recommended and can be done easily via their website: https://www.thealpinefoodie.com/

The waitress was super helpful and welcomed us immediately when we walked in. Joe the owner was hard at work cooking all of the dishes from fresh when we arrived and gave us a welcoming hello when he saw us.

What we ate

We chose to start with some Chicken Gyozas and Edamame Beans which were delicious. The Gyozas came with a soy sauce dip, a slice of lime and some fish roe garnish. The Edamame beans were a perfect blend of salt and spice and the portion size was ideal for 2 people sharing. Their menu offers several other starters including chicken satay, mini katsu and panne tofu for veggies.

Moving onto the main course we chose one curry and one noodle dish: Chicken Pad Thai and Cambodian Aubergine and Potato Curry. Yet again the presentation of both dishes was fantastic, so many colours and textures. The Pad Thai had a good ratio of chicken to noodles and the sauce had just the right amount of spice. I had a couple of mouthfuls of the Cambodian Aubergine and Potato Curry and it did not disappoint. The spicy coconut and lemongrass sauce is really tasty and is topped with radishes, spring onions and cashew nuts, again ensuring plenty of colours and textures to get your teeth into. They also offer Ramen bowls, along with Burgers and Bao Buns which is impressive given the size of the kitchen they work from.Tumeric Latte in large mug

I finished the night off  with an oat milk Tumeric Latte, not my usual digestif but on this occasion a welcome alternative to a shot of Genepi (the joys of being designated driver).

Price wise the bill came to 91 euros which included 2 glasses of white wine and 2 non alcoholic beers and it was well worth the money.

I’d really recommend Kamado. Everything from the service, interiors and delicious food made it a great evening.

I’ll be back again soon to try one of their Ramen bowls!
