Good service, despite being full, just love many of their dishes with distinctive tastes, who could have thought cauliflower could be this different and delicious....

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.

    Had fish tasting menu. Elegant and exotic dishes. Mouthwatering, huge tastes in tiny bites. Amazing combinations and innovations - the haddock and the scallop for instance. And their palate-cleansing non-alcoholic warm drink - tomato rasam - cannot be missed. Superb wine menu excellently laid out. Attentive and prompt service as you would expect.

    My wife and I chose to dine here on our first wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time here. The waiters and manager were so kind and attentive to us, and we really enjoyed their hospitable attitude and of course, the tasty complimentary dishes. We would definitely recommend this restaurant, especially because of the delicious blend of spices and flavours from South India and the lovely calm atmosphere of the restaurant.
