Opening in 1982, Bombay Brasserie was in the vanguard of modern Indian cuisine, with an inventive approach that married classic regional cooking with a European brasserie-style menu. The spacious interior, with its airy conservatory and bright murals, extends to a welcoming bar and a more traditional dining room well suited to the affluent Kensington clientele.

Fantastic Service Fantastic Food

Went for daughters 18th birthday. They were very good and created us a menu for our group at an excellent price. Service best we have ever had. Food was superb, If you like spicy food, then maybe not for you. Well worth the experience. We will definitely be going back again....very soon

This Sunday my family and I celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary at Bombay Brasserie. It turned out to be an excellent event due to good flavoursome food, excellent service arranged by the manager Shaliesh who ensured all our guest (29) were looked after even though the restaurant was full. I would like to thank him and other staff for making... More

This is not ordinary Indian food but is truly special and elegant. Meal began with small rice crackers and excellent dip and then a delicious appetizer of spinach leaves that had been gently fried and topped with yogurt, chutney and pomegranate seeds. The sauce for the man course, chicken tikka makhani, was wonderfully flavorful as was the saffron rice that... More

Superb, six of us went for the full tasting menu, impeccable food, service, ambiance - and the bill was surprisingly modest too. You must have one of the blackberry cocktails too!

My friend, who is Indian, took me here recently. What an incredible experience - the food was just wonderful. We ordered the 59 pound tasting menu and it was well worth it. Everything was just a feast for the taste buds and beautiful presented. I will tell you that it is spicy so if you can not tolerate spicy then... More

Dined here with friends last Friday night.Appears to be a refurbishment in progress but no explanation or apology and we were directed into something akin to an aircraft hanger .The vast space provided neither ambience nor atmosphere and no feeling of intimacy whatsoever . Onto the food...The menu is extremely limited which in itself would not be a problem if... More

Used to go often and it was amazing. Now it is very bland and in need of a good facelift and clean. The staff however were superb. We had the tasting menu which was pretty boring and very expensive.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
