The food here is always great, Service is no-nonsense and brisk. They also have a nice spread of cocktails and other drinks. Highly recommended for a relaxed meal.

Our daughter became a doctor and we celebrated at Brigadiers after the photo ceremony. It is by far the best Indian food and dining experience we have had in a very long time! Awesome staff, amazing food. They even brought a nice dessert as we...were celebrating which, of course, scored them extra points!! I think this is my new favourite restaurant. I would go back tomorrow if i could!! 😜More

Would have loved to have given this 5 star but after visiting various Dishoom restaurants and Cinnamon Kitchen then they have a very high bar to match. Will give it 4.5 stars rather than 5 as aforementioned restaurants are slightly better bang for the buck....Great food and great service by very helpful staff when it comes to what to order.More

So impressed with this place. The service, the food and the general ambiance is first class. Had the 6 course tasting menu with dish after dish of explosions of flavour. Loved it!

REASON FOR VISIT This has been on the list for so long that I even received a voucher for Christmas last year because I have been raving about trying it. FOOD (168£ for two with drinks, feast menu and service) We were hungry, we were...excited and we had a voucher so naturally we went for the FEAST MENU. Everything was incredible if I'm honest. It was also different to your regular curry Indian takeaway; each meal was refined and all about the spices around it without necessarily being too spicy. I have been to Dishoom, to Kricket, to Gymkhana, ... but this one outrates all of them in my opinion. Just stunned. Our favourtite dish by far was the Amritsari Fried Fish Paos; just order it. I must warn you that the FEAST MENU is too much food; I was eating but suffering of being full by the end and didn't have my desert. The beer by the jug is a must also in my opinion, really nicely presented. STAFF/SERVICE Friendly staff even though very rushed at times. Our two waiters were running all over the place. Overall speedy arrival of food and professional service. ATMOSPHERE/LOCATION Bombay busy and loud type of restaurant. It's a massive venue just under the Bloomberg HQ in City of London. Food is meant to be shared and it's all tapas style plates. Close to Mansions House, Bank and Cannon St stations. CONCLUSION: HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND WILL RETURNMore

I’d say 80% of the restaurants I visit that are 4+ out of 5 are overrated but not this place. Tried the goat, lamb chops, chicken wings, lamb koti roll and daal. Every dish was top class. Mopping up my naan with the butter chicken...sauce washed with a cobra is the stuff of dreams. I didn’t have the best seat to watch football - many screens in my site but with an obstructed view. I love football and it was a great game (Portugal 2 - Germany 4) but I didn’t really care I was enjoying my meal so much.More

My colleagues and I went for a team lunch in April this year, and despite all the imposed restrictions, this was a great experience all round. Attentive service, great food, and good ambience. Recommended.

Visited the restaurant with my husband for lunch today. The food was good and lived up to our expectations but the service let us down. Once our drinks, popadoms and starters were served, our table, which was not very big was jam packed. Altogether there...were four glasses, 4 plates and a large tray on the table. While reaching over to the plate away from me I accidentally knocked my drink over. It was half full with a cocktail I had ordered. The staff were quick to mop up the drink which was all over my clothes and the floor. I foolishly expected someone to come over and ask me if I would like it replaced , but at no point did anyone ask or offer to replace it. I didn’t feel I should have to do the asking. As a result of this we decided not to have our final course of dessert and left the restaurant having paid for 2 courses and drinks. To say I was disappointed in the service we received would be an understatement. I expected better from Brigadiers. Will think twice before I visit this restaurant again.More
