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.

Nice Indian place in London

Nice Indian restaurant with traditional indian food, i might not be an expert, but the food was good, but i can't tell or judge if it was exceptional, for me it was like any other indian restaurant. On the very positive side, the decoration was very nice and was very clean, tables are large so... read more

Started with palak patta chaat(crispy spinach with dates) which we found a little sweet and patrani macchi(Lemon sole steamed in a banana leaf with coriander,chilli and coconut) which was nice but the sole was totally smothered with the spices, so not very subtle. For the main we had kasundi monkfish and seekh lamb kebab, accompanied with saffron pulau rice, nan... More

A friend and I arrived at Bombay Brasserie on a rainy Sunday afternoon with no booking, which can often cause much huffing and puffing over the reservations files, even if the place looks empty. Here, we were simply taken to our table by the lovely stuff and attended to for the rest of the evening with equal politeness. The food... More

Every bit worth it!! From the time we entered till we left, the service was impeccable. A big massive thank you to the manager, Hemant, for specially creating a pure vegetarian taster menu for us even though it was not part of their usual menu. The food was truly amazing and every dish was bursting with flavours. I would like... More

So, decided to treat the wife to the newly refurbished Bombay Brasserie. I think it's fair to say that we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. BB has just gone thru a refurbishment and I have to say it looks and feels so much better. We had a couple of cocktails in the bar area prior to dinner and my Lychee... More

This restaurant is Amazing, every time we visit the food & service is Superb. The food just melts in your mouth. One thing you must try is the cobra coffee as it is an experience not to be missed.

We have been to the Bombay Brasserie for a few lunches and dinners and have always been wowed by their food and service.

Came here for a birthday party a few weeks ago. We started with a couple of cocktails which were very nice and different to the norm (the chilli mango cocktail was particularly interesting!). The venue was very nice with lovely decor. There was a piano player in the main dining room, but unfortunately he was wasted as everyone was in... More

A regal set up with Indian delicacies , kind of place you would want to dress up for. probably serves the best Indian food around the world... Ofcourse a good wine list ... Don't miss the sorbets here. As in the title ... This place defines the word .. Beautifully. Ofcourse it's expensive .. But worth every bite.

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.
