Restaurant description

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 and nearby is the iconic Big Ben.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Really tasty meal, lovely little extras too and good service. The wine was very expensive and I'm not sure the overall cost was good value. It was like an extra special curry...but at 4 times the prices of a local curry house, I'm not sure it was worth it.

    Sehr netter Service, nicht folkloristisches Ambiente, doch die Küche obwohl sehr schmackhaft nicht sternewürdig. Unter diesen Aspeten empfehlenswert.
