    Quilon is a wonderful restaurant. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, without being intrusive. We had a brilliant tasting menu. The amuses bouches were lovely. For me the main course options were mixed. I loved the Goan chicken, both rice dishes, and beans but found the venison a bit forgettable. However the seafood starter was one of the best dishes I have ever had, and easily the best starter I've eaten. The dessert was also lovely. The portions were very generous and we rolled out of the restaurant extremely happy.

    We enjoyed the ambience. Great location. Starters & dessert were great. Tomato soup was too spicy. We were a bit disappointed with the main course served. The potato & pea fry & dish made with beans was undercooked.
    Staff could be trained to be more professional & elegant in communicating & presenting each dish.

    This is absolute one of the best experience we have made. Food and service was outstanding.

    Our hotel told us to try this restaurant and we are very pleased. We got us a one of our best dinners ever! The Lam-shank was excellent as well as the Coconut dessert.
    If you are in London and want to try something very good this is the place to go!

    We have eaten at Quilons restaurant about six times and it remains our favourite for a special occasion. Southern Indian food is so different to the High Street Indian Restaurants we are used to. The quality of food and attentive service lives up to it's Michelin Star rating. I cannot wait for our next visit.
