    The food was good and some was outstanding. However, It did not warant the price. Putting my comments in perspective the cost was 4 times the price of my best local Indian cuisine and maybe 10% better. Better not in quality but in variation away from high street menu content. For a business meal this would be a good restuarant but for Mr and Mrs average i was dissapointed.

    Never Again. Being part of a hotel you're always going to pay a premium, but £7 for a half pint of Kingfisher (being the cheapest beer on the menu) meant that 2 of us, having 2 pints came to a staggering £56.This is South Kensington, not Monaco. The food sounded delicious on the menu, but was quite bland, took an eternity to arrive and was subsequently lukewarm. Service was OK, as was the ambiance, but it's never going to be "buzzing" with 2 parties of 20 from a conference...

    My hubby and I went there as part of our honeymoon weekend. I knew nothing about the restaurant apart from the fact it had had good reviews - and I now enthusiastically add mine to it! A little hidden away (we were worried it was shut as we had to push open the door!) with a lovely, surprising surrounding - a high-ceilinged room with a rose window! The service was very good indeed and the food... OHHH, the food. WOW. Absolutely delicious! Wished we could have tried everything!!!

    This restaurant is not what it used to be 10 years ago - the food back then was authentic and while a bit on the expensive side it was worth it. I found the food is now more bland, the waiter forgot a portion of our order and I had to remind him of it. The dinner portions were small and overall I found it poor value to money. On a positive note when I found that I needed to order more food for the table they were able to bring it out double-quick. Overall it seems that the restaurant now caters more to the gulf arab crowd that hangs about Knightsbridge and South Ken rather than standing out as a long time authentic Indian restaurant.

    The food was quite simply delicious. On Saturday and Sunday lunchtime there is a buffet with an impossibly wide selection of dishes. The majority of the guests were Asian and there were at least two "occasions" taking place. What more can I say?

    Nice bar and entrance to meet friends and enjoy a chat before dinner. The food tastes great, lots of flavour. Good wine choice. However, the service was not up to the usual standard, two items were delivered wrong to our table. Unacceptable in a restaurant of this standard in my book.

    We were a party of 6 and were given a great table at the front of the restaurant which has a colonial sophisticated feel. We had a variety of starters and main courses, highlights were the mango lassis, cocktails, tandoori prawns and chicken, the chicken biryani (although a bit dry), the laccha paratha and the venison roast, which was quite robust and spicy. Desserts were a bit average however. Service was attentive but occasionally the waiters could not be found and we waved our hands around a lot. Exquisite food, will return.

    Went to Bombay Brasserie for Tuesday lunch. There was no need to have booked as only 2 other tables were occupied, I assume the main trade must be in the evening.We all went for the set menu which was very good. Drinks however were exhorbitant at £7 per half pint bottle of unknown (Bombay Blond) beer.That aside I would return to the restaurant for the food and drink sparingly.

  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 12/6/2014
    Overall disappointing. Something has happened to this place. It is rather lifeless and although the service was attentive and good on the detail, the food just wasn't up to our expectations. We used to love Bombay Brasserie. Over the years, while living in London and now visiting from Toronto, we never missed a stop at BB. This time, we found the food to be adequate - no better or worse than a good quality High Street Indian restaurant. But when you think of what you eventually pay, it's just not worth it. This may have been our last visit. It is possible the management from Taj have shifted their emphasis to their new favourite at Buckingham Gate called Quilon.

    My 2nd visit, the first a family of 8 three years ago. This time with friends as a thank you. Relaxed entrance, initial drinks served with care, allowed us to consider the menu. The restaurant, not too noisy and excellent attentive staff. Starters & Main courses proved the quality and care that had been taken on presentation, taste was as it looked, if not better. We enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the staff who looked after us. A real special occasion, that would impress anybody. I really did feel happy about paying, they deserved it for all the work that must have been happening to produce such a relaxed and enjoyable evening with such high quality food. All the staff should be congratulated, keep it up for my next celebration.

    I was once upon a time a regular for Saturday/Sunday lunch at Bombay Brasserie. I visited this time after a long gap of several years because I now only visit London occasionally on business. The quality was very poor and ordinary. No taste at all The variety was very limited. The starters were awful. Chicken Tikka, though on the hotplate, were ice cold. Everything was below par. never again. Satish Shah

    Four of us went midweek for meal. The restaurant was quite quiet with plenty of room. Typical menus are on their website. There is a nice selection of Indian street style food for the starters & a wide selection of main courses including clay oven tandooris, seafood, meat including game & vegetarian. All the food the four of us had was excellent, with high quality ingredients cooked in a modern Indian style. The service was very attentive served with good humour & helpful suggestions. The drinks menu is extensive with craft beers, reasonable priced wines & some at the significantly higher end of the price range if that is your thing. Prices are certainly not the lowest but I will definitely being going back, I really enjoyed the food.

    I bought a house round the corner 15 years ago, but this is the first time I have got round to eating at the Bombay Brasserie. It's in a great room. Given that it is sandwiched between two hotels, I suspect it was once a hotel ballroom. Very impressive setting. The food was faultless. Service was fantastic. It feels demeaning to describe the food as 'Indian' and pretty pointless comparing it with 99% of Indian restaurants however good they might be. It's simply great food cooked beautifully. It's not cheap and I didn't expect to be so. 3 of us went for a tasting menu ay £56/head and the bill reached £300. We left happy. I won't wait another 15 years.

  • Ambience, The Lack of It
    Latimer
    Dined on 15/4/2014
    The food is excellent and the service very well intended. The total lack of ambience caused by stark lighting and walls, too much uncluttered but not clear space, tables unusually too large which make conversation slightly difficult and a mismatch in the height of seats to table, possibly caused by the cushioned seating sinking to a lower than normal height, coalesce to create an uncomfortable and unsophisticated setting. A great pity as this was preveviously a brilliant restaurant.

    I always enjoy The Bombay Brasserie, one of the reasons being that it always feels very relaxing. The ambience is good with lighting and background music both at just the right level, and those large tables mean that you never feel squashed. I think it is always at its best when you are dining in a group of four or more - the staff are very good at selecting a range of dishes for the table.

    Overall. Only ok. The appetizer was good. The tandoori chicken was flavored ok and tender. The curry was bad. The water is 4 pounds and they don't warn you about the price even as they refill the water, ultimately bringing it to 8 pounds. At a restaurant with these prices for everything else , to pay for tap water seems poor form on their part. Mostly the curry was such a disappointment. I ordered a fish curry. The fish was tasteless on its own and the curry tasted of lamb ( which I do not like) leaving me to wonder if they had the lamb curry poured over the fish as an afterthought.
