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.

Popped into Quilon for dinner after a long day at work. Had couple of colleagues joining me and I offered to treat them to food from my land.

The absolute best Indian food I've ever had. It was fancy and different from the usual Indian food (chicken tikka, lamb saag, etc.). I expected to get some out-of-this-world curry and naan, but glad it wasn't the case.

Braised lamb shank

Prawn masala

Coconut with asparagus and snow peas

Every single... more

This is one of our favorite restaurants when we visit London.

This is a true fine dining... more

Highly recommended! Service impeccable! The manager went out of his way to make us feel special. The food concept itself was unique and interesting. A modern flare to Indian food. I didn't even smell curry when I walked in. My partner not a huge fan of Indian food but he loved every dish here. The lamb the server recommended was outstanding, so tender and the sauce was a perfect pair with meat. more
