What can I say that would do justice to the excellent meal and superb service I have just experienced at The Bombay Brasserie? The very best Indian food with a superb ambience topped only by superlative service

Nice looking place near our hotel so we booked online which worked fine. For the money we paid we found presentation and quality of food not really impressive, and pity that hot food is not presented on warmers as it turned cold fast Service is friendly but a bit coldish...

I was the Master of Ceremonies at a Zoroastrian Wedding and Reception working with the Managers and the staff. The attention to detail and the clients requirements were second to none. The food was excellent and service could not be faulted. Visiting the Bombay Brasserie certainly gives one the chance of visiting Bombay without leaving the country. Well Done.

We have been regulars at The Bombay Brasserie, dining there at least once every time we are in London. Over the past 40 years we've dined there many, many times. It has been widely regarded as one of the best Indian restaurants in the world, bringing Indian cuisine to a whole new level. Sadly, things have changed; the last time... More

We did not expect the elegance, peaceful atmosphere or incredible food when we walked up to the Bombay Brasserie. The staff is extremely professional and attentive, and the owner of the establishment is on-hand overseeing everything with precision. The food is out of this world - the best curry we had in London. I can't say enough great things about... More

The place was busy and caters for well off patrons who need somebody to talk too The food was average compared to the last time and at one point a family were turned away as they had children with them when clearly there were tables free The staff try their best but most don't understand the cuisine and cannot advice...

Went on recommendation of Indian friends that used to live in London.The setting was beautiful and the brunch was very good . I have eaten lots of Indian food but there were many novel dishes. The staff was happy to explain what the dishes were and they were delicious.

My wife and I ate dinner here on a recent visit to London, and enjoyed the experience. Close to Earl's Court, the room itself is very impressive, as is the menu. For starters I had tandoori prawns, which were very nice, although I though just two was a bit mean. My wife for her appetiser choose the tandoori lamb kebab,... More

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.

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.
