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.

I first went to The Bombay Brasserie in the 1980's and although the decor has changed from the hanging garden look the food has stayed the same and it is excellent. We stayed next door at the Millenium Hotel and so it is just a few steps to the restaurant. The lamb was fantastic, the salads very good and the... More

Don't get me wrong, the food is tasty, the interior finish is plush and the service is good; however, it should be for £17 to £25 for a modestly-sized main course. If you want a good Indian meal then go to Brick Lane or Southall. This fare is Indian-lite in my view and as such loses a critical aspect of... More

Went for lunch yesterday as a guest - only people there, but good welcome/service, coats taken, and the room itself is an impressive, grand space. Food was good (lamb kebabs, chicken curry for me) but not leagues ahead of other Indian places in the area, I thought. Looking a little frayed around the edges (stains visible on the banquette), not... More

Out of our image of Indian restaurant. Price is much much higher than other local Indian restaurant but you can enjoy high class service and dishes at this place.

Its available world-wide nowadays and many Indian do also live world-wide bringing their lovely food culture around the globe. Surprisingly this restaurant is providing, a food, service and an...

After hearing so many great things about this restaurant I was eager to try it out, however after my visit I was left feeling a little disappointed by the food. My initial impression of the restaurant was impressive, the decor and staff were phenomenal. The entrance of the building had this grand yet exclusive feel to it as it was... More

I have eaten at the Bombay Brasserie numerous times over the past 2 decades and enjoyed some very memorable times there, the Bombay Brasserie being my favourite London restaurant. Having travelled to India, the food here is usually as authentic as in India itself. My partner, daughter and I booked again for Sat 20 December as a treat after a... More
