Michelin star restaurants Nottingham: Restaurant Sat Bains
As far as Michelin star restaurants Nottingham go, Restaurant Sat Bains (2 Michelin stars) surely is the best? We had been lucky enough to dine here before and wondered ‘can this really be as good as last time?’ By the end of the 10 course tasting menu I discovered it wasn’t as good as our last meal- it was even better!
All the menus have been created using the five tastes of salt, sweet, sour, bitter and umami. Each course delivers a flavour hit that is staggeringly good.
It is true that all of the dishes were highlights but stand out dishes include veal croquette served with fresh peas,mints and shoots. A velvety hay infused hollandaise adds a lovely texture and extra flavour to this dish.
My favourite dish of the evening was the assiette of lamb. Studded with amazing flavours and delights, this Mediterranean influenced plate delivered fantastic flavours. The lamb perfectly cooked came in different guises along with a mixture of peppers and courgette. This dish alone is worth a visit.
Ingredients and ideas that are not often seen are common place in desserts here which makes them interesting and inventive.
Lenton Lane (the road which the restaurant is located on), is a take on the rocky road that leads you to the restaurant with ingredients from the surrounding areas. Packed with textures and tastes, this witty dessert is a hit with us.
It is worth having a coffee to complete your meal not just because the coffee is delicious but it comes with a chocolate log! Yes a log with shards of different flavour chocolate jutting out which is sensational.

On this occasion we stayed in one of the rooms on site, the ultimate luxury. When you have finished your tasting menu you can simply walk upstairs to your bedroom and slump into your king size bed, dreaming about your next visit.
