Had lunch at the Bombay Brasserie two weeks or so ago (my host suggested it following its recent renovation), a lunch I was very much looking forward to since I last time I dined there was some twenty years ago, and had fond memories of several lunches there in the '80's. It now unfortunately totally lacked any atmosphere; gone was... More

As soon as we entered the dining area, were pretty impressed by the perfect ambiance. The service was good and friendly. We ordered both veg and non veg, and food was delicious - good portions. The place is pricey though. A must visit.

The Bailey's hotel staff recommended this resto after we inquired about an authentic indian restaurant near the hotel. We were feeling very tired and did not want to eat in the resto, so we got some to take-away and eat at the hotel room. The food was not awful, but it was not authentic indian. The spices and seasonings seemed... More

The Restaurant was recommended by an Indian friend. Beautiful dining room and excellent staff. We have eaten in 4 fine dining London Indian Restaurants and the quality of the cooking here was disappointing in comparison. The starter dishes were enjoyable but the main courses gave the impression of chicken and fish cooked and then added to pre-prepared sauces. Both dishes... More

Visited the restaurant after a long break and enjoyed it immensely. Went to a press lunch in the attractive, light and airy conservatory. The buffet was superb with a choice of a delicious tilapia curry, succulent chicken kebab, delicately spiced potatoes and several other vegetable dishes. Although we were there to hear some serious speeches the food and ambience made... More

The staff at the Millennium Bailey's hotel recommended this restaurant to us one night when it was raining and we didn't want to walk far for dinner. My two friends and I chose the kebab platter and a couple of sides to share, and the staff had no problems with it being a takeaway order. Unfortunately, by the time we... More

The service was impeccable, the food brilliant and the atmosphere awesome! We come here every year and are never disappointed, it's worth having a Cobra Coffee at the end of your meal, they're not cheap but it's a piece of performance art

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.
