A firm family favourite, this iconic restaurant holds many memories for me. I returned last Saturday night for a wonderful meal with friends. We ordered the lamb chops and prawns as starters which were cooked to perfection. My monkfish main was divine and my friend commented that it was the best Indian she had had in her life! The restaurant itself has an opulent colonial style, with a vast dining room and lots of space which gives diners a sense of privacy often lacking in many of the city's newer places. The service is pretty good and the pianist adds a grown up sophistication that evokes a great feeling of nostalgia. If you haven't fallen in love with Indian food yet let this place change your mind.


Iconic fine dining Indian restaurant Bombay Brasserie recently announced a relaunch with new menus and freshly designed interiors, and I couldn’t wait to try it out!

The reinvented menu includes exciting new dishes such as venison roast (strips of venison fillet, onion, tomato, ginger, spices, coconut slivers) and prawn hara pyaz ka (black tiger prawns, spring onions, scallions, tomatoes and spices).

They have also bought back some of old favourites such as palak patta chaat (crispy fried baby spinach, yoghurt, date and tamarind chutney) and baingan bharta (smoked aubergine mash, cumin, chilli, and coriander leaves). We tried both of these dishes and the variation of texture and depth of flavour in them made them delicious. 

We dined at Bombay Brasserie from their set lunch menu, which included three courses for £24. This is an amazing value deal for such an elegant restaurant, however I did get a sense that the food on the a la carte menu would probably be much more superior than what we were served. 

I often find set menus are the perfect way to experience and get a taste of high end restaurants, but Bombay Brasserie didn’t seem to place much emphasis on theirs.
