Restaurant description

Enjoying legendary status in London since opening on 10th December 1982, Bombay Brasserie offers authentic and eclectic Bombay cuisine, presenting Indian cuisine in elegant brasserie style. As well as a sky-lit ceiling and glossy marble in the dining room, a circular open kitchen creates a buzz.

Uniting the diverse regional recipes of India under one roof, the Bombay Brasserie menu offers a refined twist on time-honoured classics. Showcasing creative signature dishes, favourites include slow-cooked lamb shanks in a delicate saffron curry, or marinated salmon served simmering from the tandoor. For sweet Indian-style indulgence, enjoy a cleansing masala tea brulee with ginger and pineapple sorbet.

At the chic Bombay London bar, long and fruity cocktails and Indian style tapas are served in chic surroundings. In this European-influenced space, guests can nestle in cosy armchairs, or next to the expansive fireplace.

Set in one of London’s most sought-after postcodes, Bombay Brasserie South Kensington boasts an exclusive clientele, and is frequented by many a famous face. Gloucester Road Tube Station sits just next door.

    Upon arrival the scene is beautifully set! Selected menu was not available, however the ala carte was favored. Starters were amazing, quickly followed by main course, which failed to keep the high standard set by starters. Overall a great dine out experience, drinks and food are priced at district rates as usual.

    food was good. Service was good although a trifle slow. The only downside to the meal was the noise level. It is a large, high-ceilinged room with very little baffling, and thus the noise level was very high. The piano player did not help! Too loud. It is not a place to go for a quiet, romantic dinner.

    Beautiful decor inside. Very attentive staff who could not do enough for us. The monk fish from the clay oven was delicious.

    This is one of my top two Indian restaurants in London; the other is The Red Fort on Dean Street. Both prepare exquisite dishes. Far from the high street curry house that serves 8 sauces on 8 meats/fishes/tofu, each dish at Bombay Brasserie is unique, with perfectly blended flavors (flavours if you're British). You won't find one of these dishes on your high street curry house menu! The decor is lovely, the service is always quick, yet tasteful. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone wanting a truly first class dining experience.

    We were very disappointed in the food. The chicken tikka was dry. The lamb cutlets were way over salted. Our last trip to the Bombay Brasserie

    Dining at the Bombay Brasserie was a wonderful experience in every sense. The food was excellent, as was the service. I hope it will not be to long before I get to visit the restaurant again.
