A very nice Restuarent with very welcoming staff. The food was excellent although little spicy for kids taste. But overall excellent dish with little twist and fusion which I think is brilliant. Highly recommended

Headed by Atul Kochhar of Michelin-starred Benares, Indian Essence offers a polished, modern take on Indian cuisine. The spotless dining room features bold magenta lighting and a chic glowing bar.

Alongside gourmet curries and succulent dishes served straight from the tandoor oven, the Indian Essence menu includes Atul’s favourites, like lobster in coconut sauce, or Goa-style sirloin steak with coriander chips. Classic European desserts are served with a twist at Indian Essence in Petts Wood, like cardamom-infused dark chocolate fondant, or rose & raspberry-scented Calcutta cheesecake.

A range of slick, refreshing cocktail mixes are offset by a bold wine list: perfectly matched to complement the intense flavours of the dishes. Regularly changing vintage bottles are available from the bar at Indian Essence near Bromley, as well as cooling masala iced tea, or passion fruit and chutney martini.

Found in a leafy London suburb, Indian Essence restaurant is a 3-minute walk from Petts Wood Rail Station.

    3rd or 4th visit. Once again not disappointed, food and service both excellent. The restaurant was very busy but retained the great atmosphere experienced previously. Just as important the staff were as attentive and friendly as they had been when we visited at a less busy time.

    Quality of food was amazing, 5*. Unable to fault this place, slightly pricey but as they say you get what you pay for...

    A lovely meal with excellent food, drinks - great cocktails just a little on the pricey side for outside London. Service could have been better, drinks were never refilled or asked if we needed any more water.

    Food outstanding. Atmosphere buzzing and with live background music an overall great place. Service a little haphazard at the beginning but certainly would not deter me from revisiting
