Description: 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.

The Bombay Brasserie is one of my favorite spots to have Indian food in London. We have eaten there 3 times while visiting london and every time the experience gets better and better. Amazing service, great food, beautiful place, what else would you want?

We dined at the Bombay Brasserie last night and due to the size of our party we had a set menu. The food that was served was one of the best curry's I have ever had. For starters we had the chicken tikka and the subz tikki, both of these were fantastic and incredibly tasty. Our main consisted of one... More

Visited on recommendation and was not disappointed, waiter was extremely helpful in recommending dishes from the menu giving a good selection to try between us. Would definitely revisit if ever in Kensington / London again.

On my friends tour of all the Indian restaurants we went to Bombay Brassuie. Finding the place is very difficult and parking is a nightmare. Nice reception as we are sat down by the waiters. Then it goes downhill after that. We tried some starters which we did not like, the only thing I liked was the Lamb Chops which... More

The bar area you first enter looks classy; nice armchairs, attentive staff. But then the barman starts with the [seriously loud] blender to prepare some cocktail or other and seemed constantly on. No chance of a conversation. No matter, proceed to the dining hall with our drinks. The main dining room looks quite grand due mostly to its size; the... More

If you like Indian food and quality - go to the Bombay Brasserie (next to tube station Gloucester Road - can't miss it). Spacious rooms, very high ceiling, well-dressed servants. The prices are (for me) considerable but justifiable. Not a place for fast dinners but more a place to stay, have a whine with the meal and wear proper clothes... More

We visited as part of a regular group and were well treated, though perhaps not as generously as in previous years. The food was as good as ever, but less generous. The main problem was bar prices. I think that charging £17.50 for one gin and tonic and one small beer is pretty unreasonable...

I've been going to the BB on and off for many years. Then in 2008 decided to refurbish the place and spent a lot of cash taking away the old colonial charm and atmosphere replacing it with a stereotypical modernist bar area, dispensing with the piano player and well just making it a typical restaurant. Sometimes you should just not... More
