One of London's select few Michelin-starred south Indian restaurants, The Quilon Restaurant presents refined south west coastal Indian cuisine, displaying an intense passion for fresh and exotic seafood, meat and vegetarian specialities.

Characterised by a colonial-style air of timeless elegance, Quilon Restaurant London prides itself on creating experimental Indian dishes. Fine speciality beers complement the fine dishes, and the exceptional wine list has been prized with Wine Spectator's prestigious annual Award of Excellence, every year since 2009.

The Quilon menu features creations like seared fillet of monkfish with juicy scallops and a delicate mustard sauce, slow cooked pistachio lamb or marinated tilapia roasted in banana leaf. Sweet decadences at Quilon near Westminster include lentil cappuccino with cardamom shortbread or spiced dark chocolate and hazelnut mousse.

Enticing cocktails are showcased at Quilon, including the tamarind margarita and mango bellini or the non-alcoholic apple mojito. St James's Tube Station is a 5-minute walk from Quilon London.

    Warm welcome, each dish was delicious and additional "tasting" dishes added to try. We shared our meal so we're able to experience many flavours which were fantastic.

    After an 8 year absence I had forgotten how good Quilon is. Excellent sophisticated preparation of dishes which are Indian,, but without that 'in your face OTT spiciness that lesser establishment practice.

    The quality of both food and service was top drawer.

    We ate the 60£ sampler menu. Rarely do we choose such samplers due to excessive portions but I will state here it was the right choice. Every course was beautifully presented, the flavors exquisite and subtle with even digestive juice between starters and main course. A remarkable meal and one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Unfamiliar with Goa / SW coastal Indian food and last night's dinner was a wonderful introduction. I don't have the menu to hand so can't comment on any specific courses. But I would go back any time.

    Best Indian food in London. Great variety served for lunch. Every dish was delicious and Prawn curry was the best of the lot. The personnel attending (especially guy from goa) to us were extremely nice and wanted to tip them for the excellent services but they didn't accept it. Planning another visit next month.
