The interior is an elegant mix of rich muted colours and the bar is a particularly popular place to meet. The delicious food is described as 'Coastal Cuisine' and dishes such as seafood, crustacea and a variety of specialities are available. Dishes includes Char-grilled shrimps with lime and chilli, lobster with tangy Goan pickle and fish curry with coconut. Quilon received a "Five Star Diamond Award" from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences and was granted its first Michelin star in 2008.

“Excellent choice for a romantic Indian diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place is just wonderful. It is a journey to India's finest & most tasteful meals. The service is great, the food is just excellent and the curry is melting in your mouth. I strongly recommend the house' menu. Avoid Indian wine though as it tastes as good as a Californian sauvignon. Great place for a romantic escape!

“Go there and then go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

The best Indian we've ever had. We went twice during the week we were in London - it was that good. Expensive for a curry, but very cheap for a Michelin Star restaurant. On balance, the food wins easily. Good beer too!
