Ma Cuisine is a model of simple sophistication. Fresh ingredients and traditional French recipes are handled simply and satisfying with no homage paid to the latest food fads. John McClement's local bistro in leafy Twickenham, opened in 2003, already draws a discerning foodie crowd from across the capital. Its evidently winning plenty of fans as there are now there Ma Cuisine restaurants with the second in Kew and a third in Barnes. The simplicity of the food is reflected in the understated d?cor. White and black floor tiles blend easily with elegant tiffany lampshades, bare walls and slightly 1970s plastic table cloths. A starter of asparagus salad comes with an excellent hollandaise and the wild mushroom risotto is equally accomplished. Mains are simpler still. A cassoulet of confit duck and Toulouse sausage is cooked to perfection. From the fish dishes, wing of skate comes with a tasty, tangy caper and lemon butter sauce. The accompanying vegetables, crisp green beans and potatoes dauphinoise are plainly presented but winningly handled. Desserts are equally satisfying, the petite but decadent pot au chocolat being particularly good. This is hearty French fare without the fuss at reasonable prices. Ma Cuisine is something of a local institution and the compact dining area is regularly packed most evenings.
