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.

We tried this restaurant after recommendations from a friend and we were not disappointed. The attention to care and service is evident the moment you walk through the door. The waiters were knowledgable about the food and gave very good advice...even down to advising us to start with just 2 naan bread and then they would bring more if we... More

There are not enough words to explain how great is this restaurant. The design, the staff and OMG the food. The best indian food i've ever had in my life. The lightly breaded spinach is so delicios and of course the different type of fishes all fresh and tasty. I hope soon i can go back there!

We were warned that this wasn't going to be a cheap night out, but it was worth every pound. Excellent food and excellent service.

Late drop in on valentines day, still just a few minutes waiting. They showed great concern if the food was too spicy for our 10yr old daughter and even if we said it's ok, they still made a special for her less spicy. All dishes great presentation and taste. Very efficient and kind service! We'll be back! Price at the... More

I used to go to this restaurant when I was living in the UK some decades ago. At that time it was, arguably, one of the best places for Indian food in London. In a recent visit to London we dined there with my wife. The food was tasty and the service very good. However, the setting was looking a... More

We were in the restaurant for a Friday lunch. Despite a nice lunch menu we were the two only visitors... This is a little bit strange and you wonder how the restaurant is doing. The food was good, the service impeccable so nothing to complain about. I hope that they' ll manage to attract more clientele in the future.

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.
