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.

    Quilon is an all time favourite, their chargrilled scallops, crab cakes, kothu lamb and quilon fish curry are a must have every single time, some authentic yet global vegetarian keralite dishes like the spinach poriyal are excellent . The rasam that comes between meals is superb and have yet to taste as good elsewhere. It has been a regular haunt for us for a few years now . Any occasion or celebration calls for Quilon. I love the way they have retained their relaxed homely atmosphere despite the Michelin star status.

    I love this restaurant. There aren't many South Indian restaurants in London and this is a good one. Standard South Indian dishes but done to a high standard. Lunch menu is good value for a Michelin star restaurant. The staff are wonderful; they are very friendly and very helpful.

    Excellent as always, owned by Taj Hotels so has to be the best in fine dining. This was my third visit and will be going again. Service and presentation of food excellent. Prices quite steep given the quantity of food. Need to be more generous in portions.

    The curry and the lamb were delicious! The scallops were a little bit tasteless though. We loved the chocolates at the end, as well.
