A word from Bombay Brasserie
One of the worlds most acclaimed Indian restaurant serving authentic regional cuisine in a sophisticated raj style splendour with a conservatory.
See all photos >
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."

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
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."

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!"

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."

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!"

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."

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"

We went with friends for a meal as
a special treat on our visit to London. Everything about the evening was perfect. Highly recommended."

Always wanted to try the bombay
brasserie and was not disappointed. From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave you are treated like royalty, the food is suberb, we done the taster menu, a couple of bottles of lovely white wine complementary brandies after, fantastic. Would deff go again, special occasions, as cost can be a little off putting, maybe next year"
dined on 01/03/2014
Really lovely food and wonderful
setting. Calm and relaxing and was a nice place for a small group of friends reunion."
dined on 26/02/2014
Dined on Valentines evening in a
half empty restaurant ate just warm bland food served by surly eastern European waitresses that could barely speak English. Not the top Indian restaurant experience we were expecting, had better food and all round experience at our local Indian restaurants without the £60 round trip cab fare - the usual London rip off!"
dined on 14/02/2014
Went for lunch on Saturday and was
told that there is only a buffet option on weekends. The food was absolutely fabulous. Have not had such good indian food in a really long time. The buffet had a fish, a lamb and a chicken curry and about 5 vegetarian options. There was a separate starter and dessert counter. Food was fresh, not in large quantities and they kept on replenishing the dishes with freshly made portions throughout the service. The staff was very observant but not obtrusive. The manager came over in between and we asked if we could get a portion of the Chicken Makhani as this was not on the buffet and my wife was really keen on trying this out. They arranged this for us at no extra cost. Really impressed and will go here again"
dined on 15/02/2014
The venue is very good. We booked
two weeks in advance and received three emails too remind us. We were taken into what looked like an overflow dining area where they stored tables and chairs. It was poorly lit and was cold with no ambiance whatsoever. The waiter brought the courses with no explanation and little ceremony. The food was lukewarm and distinctly average. When you spend in excess of £200 on a set dinner for two I expect more, but we got less. Never to be recommended or repeated."
dined on 14/02/2014
This was a trip to bring back old
memories but fell a bit flat. The service was fine - polite, attentive but not rushed and after some very pleasant introductory dishes (we chose the more complex tasting menu) we thought things were going well. Then came the main courses and it went wrong. The vegetable dishes were very good but the two mains (prawns and chicken) were merely those items cooked in what tasted and looked just like one of Heinz or Cross & Blackwells' cream of tomato soups. No "taste of India" whatsoever. I'm absolutely sure that the £150 for two could have been a lot better spent elsewhere."
dined on 10/02/2014
Spacious and well run
establishment in a quality and traditional environment. Service was very good, sometimes a little over attentive for a business meal, and the food excellent. Good advice on food choices which were all delicious. Pricey but very enjoyable."
dined on 11/02/2014
The food here was outstanding.
Among the best Indian food I have had ...including in India. Very authentic. Loved the service even better. Very courteous staff who had the just the right level of attentiveness. Not at all intrusive. Loved the experience."

My husband and I love coming here,
the food is so taste yams the ambiance is perfect."

This was a disappointment. The

We came here from Geneva.. and we
will come again! Very nice service und exceptional food!!!!"

Very enjoyable experience, once
more, food always delicious and service impeccable."
dined on 26/01/2014
Great for regional specialities,
especially the tandoor dishes; the interior is grand with well spaced table arrangement. However, the seafood was a tad overcooked. If you must eat Indian food in Chelsea this is a good choice."
dined on 11/01/2014
We had New Year's eve dinner at
Bombay Brasserie. It was very expensive and all of the food had obviously been prepared well in advance; nothing seemed like it had been made that day. It was good but not worth the money. The decor is also a little shopworn, and the banquette had some stains on it. The service was good and the people were friendly."
dined on 31/12/2013
A fantastic experience from start
to finish. The food was second to none, especially the chilean sea bass and rose ice cream. We have eaten on a Saturday night 3 times and each time the service and food has been faultless. We also had the buffett on Sunday afternoon and this was also fantastic, the description of buffett doesn't do it justice it is more like a tasting menu, try it you definately will not be dissapointed. We ate at L'estranger on the Friday night and there is no comparison the food at the Bombay Brasserie is so much better. The Bombay brasserie is one of the best dining experiences you will have and we are already looking forward to our next visit."

I always thought that this
restaurant was as close as one could get to fine Indian cuisine, without travelling to India. However, I had been away for a few years. Thus, when I booked a table for four for Christmas dinner, I was worried that the standards had slipped. Luckily, my concerns were unfounded. The Bombay Brasserie is still a great restaurant. We ordered a set menu that satisfied every one of our culinary dreams. We had a festival of flavors, textures, temperatures, and spices. There were none of the cliches that one sees in other Indian restaurants in London. At the end of the meal, despite the high price tag, we all agreed that this was no doubt one of the best holiday meals we ever had."
dined on 24/12/2013
I have not tried the BB since many
years and this was the first time after the refurbishment. The food was good but not excellent (in particular the nan bread was not the best). The ambience is a little bit too cold but in general it was a good experience."
dined on 23/12/2013
Tried the taster menu; they give
you a small portion from each dish on the list - all cooked to perfection. The drinks were great too and the service was impeccable. It was quite expensive but definitely worth it if you want to try something special!"
dined on 30/11/2013
Having not been to this restaurant
for about 3 yrs we were greatly looking forward to our trip as previous visits had been great. However, we were disappointed in the quality of the food which was definitely not what it was. Service was excellent as was the ambience, but the food was a let down. I can get an Indian better than this out in Suffolk near where we live!!"
dined on 09/02/2013
I had a guest with me and it was
very good. I made a very good choice and my guest agreed with me."
dined on 17/12/2013
Meeting up with 2 friends I'd not
seen in a while the Bombay Brasserie provided an excellent venue. We had the set taster course (£46 pp I believe), the food was fabulous and greatly enjoyed by all it included a range of different tastes and fabulous flavours of the varied dishes. The service is also first class. Alll in all this provided a great opportunity for us to catch up, made for a wonderful evening."
dined on 11/12/2013
I have visited lots of indian
restaurants in London and this is the best. There isn't the slightest doubt."
dined on 09/12/2013
This was I ever have
experienced. It never had any contact with something like fresh herbs but contained a lot of Tabasco and chilli powder. The Curry was ridiculous- and I tasted three of them. Overall it was awful food but grotesquely overpriced. Never again!!! BTW- the furniture would also need a facelift- it is full of food remnants...."
dined on 06/12/2013
Food was excellent, combined with
attentive service. Beautiful surroundings with plenty of space, loved it."
dined on 04/12/2013
Every time we manage to get to
London we eat at the Bombay Brasserie. Sorry, but no more. Our meal was a real disappointment. We both ordered Goan fish curry. The haddock was so tough that we couldn't chew it. The dish was 25% fish and 75% soupy sauce. The dish had no fish flavor and the sauce reminded us of a curry house sauce, with only one note. My duckcakes were a disappointment also. No duck flavor, it could have been anything. My wife's soft shelled crab, on the other hand, was very good indeed. But not good enough to bring us back."
dined on 03/12/2013
Been here several times, but
thought the food was a little bland, nothing spicy and biriyani was a few bits of chicken, grilled and dropped into the pilau rice, with no taste of any spices at all. Somebody dining with us thought the goan fish curry, was fish dipped in a bowl of tomato sauce!! Quite dissappointed really."
dined on 30/11/2013
We hadn't been in over 10 years so
we were pleased to find the decor refreshed, yet still the same atmosphere ... and such a journey into aristocratic India! I particularly loved the new mural in the courtyard. Food was exquisite, and even if portions seemed small at first, they were just what we needed. The monk fish was meaty and spicy, paneer was flavoursome and softened the tid bit from the monkfish. Green chutney was welcome to refresh and also add a little bite to it all. Interesting version of the traditional peshwari naan. No room left for dessert, unfortunately but menu is tempting. Nice masala tea to close a lovely meal."
dined on 23/11/2013
The food is still excellent and
the staff very friendly, but I liked the ambience of the Old Bombay Brasserie much better! I had not visited The Bombay Brasserie recently so I decided to have dinner there with a friend and I was telling her about the piano players and the palms and the dimmed lights; it used to remind me of the Imperial Hotel in Delhi. Unfortunately the decor had completely changed; the lights are too bright and it looks like a standard hotel restaurant now, anywhere in Asia. What a shame! oh ,and the wines are overpriced."

It's been there for 32 years and
it´s still fantastic! Fabulous food and outstandig service."
dined on 21/11/2013
For the price I expected much more
as there were very few choice of starters (2 veg and 2 nonveg), mains were great, dessets were ok..not the tastiest I have had. A bit disappointed."
