Diner Reviews
  • "Best prawns and lamb I ever ate. The fritted spinache has been a sensation. Very well trained staff. Everything fast, quiet and relaxing. First we had a drink at the bar and then everything happended quick but comfortable."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "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!!!"
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 03/08/2014
  • "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?"
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "Once again the good was delicious and the Service was excellent. Will be back!"
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "Great variety and extremely tasty food! Loved the ambience- nice decor and music! Excellent service and very friendly staff! I would definitely recommend this restaurant particularly for a special occasion!"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Good food, great ambience! Slightly expensive but the service makes up for it. Would go back for special occasions."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "Great food, Wine is overpriced but other than that. A really good night out."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "It was great!! The food specyally and ecxecellent service."

  • "Everytime I go to London I go to your restaurant as food and service are fabulous."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "My husband and I had a fantastic evening here with delicious food. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. Loved it and will be back."
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "Cuisine, service, ambiance, everything si always up to expectations and we were never disappointed over the years."
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "Whenever I have the chance to go to London, this restaurant is my best choice, it is the place when I want to invite business partners. "
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "The ambience and atmosphere was great. The team serving food or otherwise was very courteous and polite. Food was great and delivery time predictable."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "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. "
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "The Service was Excellent, Immediately putting me at ease. The ambulance was truly outstanding. The food was traditional Indian that looked and tasted Great. It was slightly expensive. I attended with 2 family members who enjoyed the whole experience. Full recommendation on a stunning restaurant. "
    dined on 27/05/2014
  • "What a wonderful experience! Was traveling with my three adult children who had never had authentic Indian cuisine. What a treat! Loved the atmosphere, music, wait staff, not to mention the food was incredible."
    dined on 27/05/2014
  • "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"
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 20/05/2014
  • "Delicate, finely balanced flavours, excellent service but moderately expensive."
    dined on 18/05/2014
  • "From the ornate dining room to exceptional food served by gracious, attentive servers, my business dinner at the Bombay Brasserie was an agreeable and fulfilling experience."
    dined on 18/05/2014
  • "We had been looking forward to this Dinner. On entering the restaurant we both felt it had a cold feeling and was without atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent, making recommendations, which were all first class. Overall, an enjoyable evening, but at this price, we would expect more."
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "This restaurant was recommended by the owner of a local restaurant in our home town 20 years ago. It still doesn't disappoint. The food is absolutely amazing. Try the fried spinach appetizer with pomogranent. Divine. Great service. Quiet and lovely."
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 02/05/2014
  • "The restaurant was really good. The service excellent. The reserve page and the online page of the restaurante are really good. Thanks you a lot."
    dined on 01/05/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 15/04/2014
  • "we have been going to this restaurant for many many years. it was clear to see that the service had degraded a lot, since last year. it was not possible to have a drink at the bar, we were booked in the veranda in a place hidden from all activity. BOOK IN THE MAIN PART OF THE RESTAURANT and nobody offered any good service."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "Food was very good and the service was on point however for the size of the portions it seem to me it was a bit overpriced. Would I go back? Maybe if I had to impress someone from out of town (not from the UK though) who has never had Indian food before."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "I loved it all, we got the tasting meu. It was simply fantastic. Waiters were also very attentive, a memorable experience. :) Recommended."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "We've eaten from the weekend lunchtime buffet before and enjoyed a fantastic meal. Saturday's return visit didn't disappoint. Excellent selection of scrumptious food, served in lovely surroundings by staff who can't do enough to help."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "This was my 4th time in Bombay Brasserie together with my wife and they have provided a consistently excellent service and food quality for the price. We normally go on a Sunday for sunday buffet lunch and the options are varied and generous. You can help yourself as much as you like and from a wide range of vegetarian to meat starters and mains. Highly recommended specially if you are foodie and you like to eat good food and plenty of it!"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Me and my husband went to Bombay Brasserie last week in an attempt to try gradualy al popular Indian restaurants. The food here was excellent, as authentic and tasty as it can get. Service was great and warm. The restarant can do more for the decor, as itlooks like an arrangement of tables in a big hall without much soul. But nothing else to complain!"
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "Good morning, Our experience in Bombay Brasserie was very good as usual. Reception was very kind. At the entrance you should indicate which of the right or left door is the right one... Food was outstanding, very raffinate and tasty! Service is very smart and attentive. Should perhaps the women wear a sari? Decoration should in my advice be a little more "indian", with statues of Ganesh and so on. The only point that should really be changed is that the temperature was quite low and almost uncomfortable. We would be glad to come back to Bombay Brasserie another time when we are back in London! Kind regards"
