Location and contact

Flora Indica is a unique lounge, bar and dining destination in the heart of South Kensington, located close to Earls Court station on the esteemed Old Brompton Road. Flora Indica’s modern Indian sharing plates menu and botanic gin collection, pays homage to the Scottish Botanists who travelled throughout India during the Victorian period, exploring and cataloguing thousands of species of exotic plants, previously unknown to Britain. As a result, the book entitled Flora Indica was published in London in 1855. The design of restaurant is also a tribute to this, with an eclectic mix of Harris tweed, steampunk, Victorian scientific curiosities, teak and a touch of Kensington residential elegance.

This is an outstanding Indian restaurant. Possibly the best food of any I have been to. The thing that sets this restaurant aside from others is its short, simple yet well-executed menu. I think there were only 8 mains, 6 sides and the same number...More

Elegantly stylish - with a great cocktail bar downstairs - the website photos do not do it justice. The food is generally to a very high standard - especially the curries - in which the flavours of the individual spices are distinguishable. The rice, naan...More

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
