Every year that I come to London for work....I make a point to come here....the food and service and decor is simply amazing. You would miss out if you did not try this restaurant.
Not impressed , the place is nice the atmosphere is nice but omg the food is below average and very expensive, I find that a lot of takeaway Indian restaurants serve food that is much better than what I had here
Great ambience which takes you back in time to Colonial India. Fantastic food and excellent service made this an excellent choice to celebrate a special birthday.
A fantastic brunch that is just the right size with authentic and delicious food. You can see that there are a lot of families that must come regularly. Lovely cocktails and great food in a nice ambience.
We went to Bombay Brasserie for lunch. We were one of only two tables occupied all through the lunch service. The scallop starter was excellent, however, many of the other dishes from the al a carte menu were average and not that good. The fish curry was very peppery and over hot, the tandoori chicken was dry, the roti was too dry and floury. Not a patch on home cooked roti. All in all a bit disappointing given the expensive cost of the meal.
A classic on the London scene for high quality Indian food. Right next to Gloucester Road tube station. High class place, good food, expensive.
A really excellent dinner. Great food and service!
We go to Bombay Brasserie every time we are in London and for third time, it did not disappoint. Love the fried spinach starter and the Bombay Breeze cocktail. Very colonial atmosphere, sophisticated Indian food, excellent waiters.
Annoyed... The Sunday brunch was awful. Basically a very expensive buffet. Food was flavourless. Service was poor. Sure they brought out the cake for the special occasion, but didn't go out of their way to make us comfortable. Just serve yourself with no help from staff that pretended to look busy. For £38 pp, it was a rip off
When we arrived we were told to wait in the bar even though we had a reservation. For fifteen minutes we watched other groups come in and go straight to their table. Finally we spoke to the reception but they had to ask for our name and had clearly forgotten us. When we finally taken through to the restaurant all the good tables had gone and they tried to give us the worst table in the room
very pleasant plae and delicious food. Too noisy when it gets to be full but worth the trip. Excellent service .We had a family dinner and enjoyed every bit of it .
Always felt rushed, we where not given time to eat each course before being asked 4 or 5 times have you finished
The waitstaff was prompt, polite, and unobtrusive. The food was excellent. We asked for very spicy, and it actually was! Our table for two was in the middle of the room, yet secluded - perfect for our anniversary dinner. Overall, we had a great dining experience.
Basic food - not worth the Money and the restaurant is not very nice and looks dated and cold. But service was good.
Go to an Indian cafe and food will be much better!
We went for our anniversary dinner here. The inner dining room is very quiet, but the service is quick and excellent. They could provide A la Carte menu as per our needs, though not mentioned in the menu. Ambience is very good, and the food is very authentic. We really enjoyed this special dinner
Excellent Indian quisine in a very beautiful setting that was great for conversation at normal conversation level. It was only marred by the arrival of a group of 12 who raised the noise level of the whole area of the restaurant we were in. But that was the lack of self awareness by the patrons, and in no way reflected on the restaurant. I will certainly return on future trips.
Menu was quite limited compared to last when I was there. Dishes were pretty plain... lacked much creativity. I had a guest from the US... wasn’t hugely impressed. Not the Bombay Brasserie we have been used to.
Excellent attention from staff. Attentive but not intrusive. A little more smiley would be nice. Food v good. A little rushed between courses. Again, a little patience would yield dividends for the dining experience. Overall v good.
This is my second visit to BB and I was a little nervous as the bar was set high on the first trip and very rarely is the return as good as the first BUT it was every bit as good. There is something about the place as soon as you walk in off the street. The food the staff and the experience as a whole is just great.
Have been going to Bombay Brasserie for last 30+ years and it was amazing at the beginning with WEDDING dishes from India and specials all the time. Then it went downhill with special offers and
level of clientele and "bunny girls". I am glad it has been resurrected now to near original level.
Some dishes are particularly spicy even for "hot" eaters like aubergine as a side dish and waiters hardly
mention this which is a shame...I would recommend the restaurant in any case really high...
We did not receive all the dishes ordered and Even as I was the elder person at the table there was no consideration for me and wine and the Check were presented to my daughter’s boyfriend though ordered by me and check asked by me !
Dinner wit friends and family
We felt like we were in the most elegant restaurant in Bombay, the waiter made great recommendations, everything was fantastic. Two in our party had never had Indian food before, and loved it.
Delicious food as always, great atmosphere and lovely staff
A fancy restraint with lovely food. rather spicy as to be expected. The live piano player was outstanding!! Not cheap but worth the money. Over all a lovely evening.
A scorching hot day at the end of June limits the choice as so many restaurants become stuffy and uncomfortable. Not the Bombay Brasserie which is cool, airy and mostly shaded, the perfect setting for a summer brunch. My late mother-in-law, a doyenne of the days of the Raj used to love the atmosphere here as well as the carefully-prepared cuisine. Weekend brunch is blissfully informal, with a wide range of dishes and chutneys to choose from, a variety of cooling drinks and to round everything off, splendid mango ice cream. Emerging into the 30-degree heat of Gloucester Road for a moment it seemed like Mumbai itself, then the reality, a magnificent touch of India and a superb asset to London. We loved it, and were pleased to see how well it is patronised by discerning Indians.
Simply wonderful - especially the spinach starter! We have been going to Bombay Brasserie for over 20 years and it never disappoints. Always look forward to it whenever we are in London!
Bombay Brasserie has its day!! When we lived in London we frequented it. For the last 20 years we’ve been going each time we visit London. This time was the last time we will have been there because it was awful.
We were totally ignored. The food was overpriced for what we had!!! The service was dreadful. Not at all friendly or welcoming as it had been in the past.
Goodbye to Bombay Brassiere!
I never usually write reviews on restaurants but after my visit to The Bombay Brasserie I felt compelled to. After such high hopes of the restaurant, from various reviews, my family and me were disappointed to be greeted with the smell of something off upon arrival into this restaurant. In the bar area however, when we sat down for our meal the smell wasn't in the dining room.
We ordered some starters (Fried Chicken Strips, Prawns) which all arrived promptly but the food was extremely disappointing, not only was it very bland and tasteless, the portion size was only enough for a 2 year old.
Then we decided to order mains once the starters had been finished. Our order of Chicken Tikka Makhani, Chicken Xacuti, Sheekh Kebab and Paneer Khatta Pyaz with an assortment of rice, breads, salad and yoghurt was underwhelming to say the least. All the dishes were under flavoured, lacked any spice or flavour and were excruciatingly expensive. The Chicken Xacuti took the place as probably the worst indian dish I have ever tried (I am of indian decent and it pained me to actually pay money for that dish). The paneer dish and chicken makhani seemed to taste of Heinz Tomato soup which left us all very disappointed as a bowl of soup would have been far more satisfying than those two particular dishes.
My biggest gripe, the Kebabs. We paid £27 for 3 Kebabs and we were expecting something very special for that price. Not only were they under spiced, we felt truly ripped off as our local curry houses provide better flavoured kebabs for around £1.50 each, which begs the question why so much money for these!
Lastly, the menu online once you have booked via Opentable is completely different to what is in the restaurant. As we paid our overly expensive bill, I asked the waiter why the menus were different and he looked very puzzled as why would someone query it. He reluctantly made an excuse that the menu had been changed last week, even though the menus we had been given were quite old.
Returned to Bombay Brasserie for the first time since eating there over 20 years ago. Still an elegant ambiance with superb service and very good food. The food was well spiced, but not overly so. Excellent experience; highly recommended.
This was our second trip to the Bombay during our visit to London and it was a little less successful. The spinach appetizer was not as fresh as last time and the waiter was neither as knowledgeable or as helpful as our last one. The manager seemed to know it and was worried and helpful. Still a very good restaurant with an interesting menu and we may go back when in London again.
Wonderful both my wife and I loved it.. It was one of the better Indian restaurants.
Just a wonderful experience and incredible food with a huge variety of choice. Can't rave about it enough.
Been there a few times before. The food was excellent as allways. This the service was crap.
A wonderful creative Indian cuisine that I enjoy every time I am in London.
After reading reviews for a lot of restaurants, i finally settled for Bombay Brasserie, i booked it via open table for 2 people for the same day evening at 7:30 pm.
Mrs & I had planned to go somewhere else for few drinks but decided last minute to go directly to BB instead, we got to the restaurant 1 hour earlier than excepted. They were so accommodating that they did not hesitated once to say that your early please wait, instead they took us right in and sat us down! Which are really good!!
From the time we sat down our service was next to none, i will definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friend and family.
5 stars, good food, great ambience, excellent service.
I went with high expectations having seen some great reviews but the food was expensive and oily.
It was cold because they had the air con on. We asked if they could turn it down but they just covered up the vents near us.
We went for my Mum’s birthday and she ended up being ill afterwards so not a great evening! Also I asked them if they could do something special for her birthday and they kindly brought a little cake with a candle, which was really nice..except it said Happy Anniversary instead of Happy Birthday. See picture below.
I’m disappointed as I had been to Quilon which is also part of the Taj group, which was delicious and the staff were much more attentive. It’s the same price too so if you want a nice Indian meal avoid this place and go to Quilon or Benares!
We loved everything about our lunch at Bombay Brasserie, but especially the utterly delicious food and the fantastic service, we couldn't fault a thing and cant wait to return.
Set menu had great options included in all three courses ! Really delicious food and lovely helpful staff !
Fantastic, beautiful restaurant would highly recommend.
