Flora Indica is a funky venue located close to Earl’s Court on its esteemed Old Brompton Road. This restaurant and lounge bar brings style and elegance to this busy area, and is close to both Earl's Court and West Brompton stations.
Flora Indica pays homage to Scottish botanists who travelled throughout India cataloguing thousands of plants during Queen Victoria’s reign. The tribute is not only paid through its décor, but also in its modern-Indian menu. Think delicately-spiced mouth-watering small plates. It's certainly an eye-opening experience in terms of Indian cuisine.

Flora Indica showcases and awe-inspiring collection of gins alongside a fully-stocked cocktail bar and extensive wine list. The ground floor lounge bar is perfect for after-work cocktails and casual all-day dining. The lower ground floor restaurant at Flora Indica is a beautiful formal dining space. The restaurant is also available for private use, and is the perfect setting, whatever the occasion.

I was a little disappointed with Flora Indica. The tasting menu and matched wines looked promising and some of the courses, particularly the main, were absolutely delicious. The dessert wasn't really to my taste but the wines were all lovely and well matched.
The main problem was the service, my husband whilst waiting for me got moved from one table to another slightly rudely, generally the waiters were a bit slow and sloppy (had to ask several times for water and got a single glass) and then they messed up the bill three times.
Also when we ordered additional wines by the glass I thought they were overpriced.
Overall, having spent a lot of money on a romantic evening, the experience didn't live up to the price.

The Paneer Kofta was perhaps one of the most outstanding dishes I have ever had at an Indian restaurant. This is a lovely and friendly restaurant that I only recently discovered. Wish I had known about it when I got to London a year ago.

My only quibble: I think I saw plastic straws in use. That's no good Flora Indica! Change those out for a sustainable material and you are 100% in my book.

This is the second time we have been to this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. We are fussy people and love our curries, you have to visit this unassuming Indian restaurant.

Have visited twice in 2019 and love this place. The food is heavenly, with rich, complex spices. Only took one star away because there was one dish (minor) on the tasting menu that seemed less fresh and was uninspired. I had it both visits, so it wasn't a random event. Otherwise every single bite was pure delight! Highly recommend it all!

We were REALLY IMPRESSED with the food and the service! It could well have been the best Indian we tasted ever, and we are Asians! Everything we ordered was bursting with flavors. The spices and herbs came across as really fresh. We loved every dish! There's a famous Indian restaurant in D.C. called Rasika. We were more excited with the food served at Flora Indica than that served at Rasika. Really excited about this discovery!

The dishes are way too small for the price. The food was very good but the portions are tiny. The menu has no explanations, so you have no idea what you are ordering (sauces, level of spiciness..). The tables are so close to each other that there is no privacy, unless you speak in a foreign language...which luckily was our case. Don't think we will back.

We had lunch on a Friday. The restaurant itself was beautiful and stylish. We were initially only offered a la carte and tasting menu for £47 but there was actually a lunch menu (2 courses for £15 and 3 courses for £18, great value) which we had to ask for and thought that was a bit cheeky. Food itself was beautifully presented and excellent. Restaurant would probably attract more customers if people know about this great lunch menu. Overall a lovely experience and will come back.
