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.

My girlfriend and i came here for our 6th anniversary, it was by far within one of the best dates we have ever had. Upon arrival in the almost silent tranquil relaxed bar, we were seated and served by two staff remembers who were eager to help and very polite. We enjoyed a drink and experienced the first sign of... More

Vegeterian foods are average, drinking menu is very good but you couldnt find a lot of choices when you asked they are saying out of... More

I've eaten here on at least 10 occasions and still stands in my mind as the best Indian restaurant in London . Food is outstanding and even the newer smaller menu is excellent , the service is top notch and well worth a visit .

The Bombay Brasserie is fantastic.-for Sunday lunch. Having arrived prior to our guests we were served drinks in the bar which is separated from the dining room by two thickset doors thereby keeping the noise of the bar away from the dining room and vise versa. Sunday is a buffet and the last time I visited was 22 years -how... More

Enjoyed dinner with close friends from England. Service and food was excellent. One our party had need for handicap access. The staff including the servers were very attentive and helpful and more importantly sensitive to our friends needs.

Superb buffet lunch in wonderful setting - a bit expensive but the quality of food absolutely top notch ! I was most impressed by the starters including Dahi Bara. The meat dishes were well prepared and not too spicy together with an excellent selection of vegetarian dishes. I do recommend eating in the conservatory

Friends had organised a lunch here on Sunday for a large family gathering (approx 70 people). Food was served in a buffet style in the side section of the restaurant - the part that feels like a conservatory. As you enter you walk through the bar /waiting area and then into the main restaurant. The ambiance and decoration is very... More

What makes BB stand out from rest of the Indian restaurants is its grand, opulent interiors. We went there to celebrate my husband's birthday with our closest friends and I am soooo happy that we tried this restaurant as we will definitely be a regular visitor there. Also, we have a 4 months old baby so we prefer to go... More

Having eaten in restaurants run by Taj Hotels in India I was keen to try this. The food, particularly the starters, has an authentic Mumbai feel. The recent refurbishment makes it feel very much like being in one of their Indian hotels.

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.
