Elegant, Michelin starred Quilon doesn't shout about its refined menu of South Indian coastal cuisine, which specialises in tangy seafood; it's far too discreet. Appealingly decorated in a muted palette, with wicker-backed chairs adding to the colonial air, the restaurant attracts business diners and social gatherings in equal parts to its well-heeled St. James's location. The team at Quilon use only the best ingredients and cooking techniques to ensure that each dish highlights their collective passion for home-style Indian cuisine. Always looking for ways to innovate, Quilon often experiments with combining modern and traditional elements of South Indian cuisine to ensure that a unique range of dishes can be found on the menu. The renowned seafood dishes include the Spiced Grilled Red Snapper, Koondapur Fish Curry and Pan Fried Lobster with Kashmundi Mustard Cream Sauce and Spices. For the perfect accompaniment to your meal, you can also choose from an extensive selection of drinks from the wine list, which was recognised in 2009 with Wine Spectator's prestigious Award of Excellence.

We found the music to be a little off-putting, but overall enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. The service throughout our meal was pretty good, not exemplary, but we had no complaints.

For starters, we got the cauliflower chili fry and the char grilled...more

My husband and I had lunch at Quilon yesterday, to celebrate my birthday. Here are my thoughts:

Ambiance is great. The table set up is really nice and the restaurant is very clean and sleek.

You may be concerned with this many four and five star reviews that you're setting yourself up for a let down. You're not. The atmosphere is calm, contemporary, and distinctly Indian. It feels like a natural and subtle blend of modern and Indian while completely avoiding any vulgar fusion that may come to mind.

Service is superb from the hostess at the entrance, to the wait staff, and...more
