A nice meal. Just that: nice. We had the seafood tasting menu. Nothing particularly exciting. The biryani was pleasant, some of the other dishes were tasty. It was an entirely unexceptional meal. Service was pleasant and subdued. Cocktails were not, for me, especially nice or unusual.
I'm staggered this place has a Michelin star. Compared with Gymkhana or Tamarind (for example) this was a massively underwhelming meal. I could not recommend this place. I've had similar quality food at Masala Zone (not knocking that - it's generally solid for me)
Thank you For the hospitality.
Wonderful to go back to qulion the best place to be.
Looking forward for many more visits in future
Wonderful dinner and service.
We did not go hungry and the cocktail was amazing
Expected better for one star Michelin. Disappointed
Fabulous food and service, will definitely visit again. Thanks Quilon team!
What a fine experience that was! I liked because I love new dishes and improvised version of our Asian food! And that I can always find in Indian recipes! Thanks for making my evening such wonderful!
Starters were little cold. Wine not served quickly
Mains were top notch... way too pricy though.
Disappointing overall. The poppadoms although cute were bland. The prawns were cold. The chicken starter was nice. Lamb shank curry was ok but not amazing and we regret ordering the lobster as it lacked flavour and don’t think it did the lobster justice. With high expectations as the restaurant has a Michelin star we left really dissatisfied.
The taster menu was great particularly if you are introducing someone to Indian food. Highly recommend it.
We were a party of 4 with a good knowledge of Indian cuisine and had been looking forward to our dining experience very much. The menu is extensive with a good variety of dishes.
However, the male server was rude and pushy. He wanted to choose our meals for us and when we insisted we wished to make our own choices he was affronted and surly.
The women who served us were delightful but the male server continued to be aggressive and critical of some of our choices.
Overall we enjoyed our meal and would return for the quality of the food.
Superb food. The fish tasting menu was just beautiful.....Black Cod melted in your mouth.
Second time being here, did not dissapoint. Amazing food and service! Would definitely recommended.
Never disappoints us, loved the tasting menu. Full of flavour and such a wide spread, it’s a culinary delight.
The seafood tasting menu was sensational. The service was friendly and attentive, and it was a very enjoyable overall experience. I highly recommend a visit.
We visited on a Tuesday evening for a birthday dinner. I'm sad to say that the entire experience was deeply disappointing. First, before deciding to book the restaurant I sent an email to ask for additional information which was ignored by staff. Leaving that aside, I still decided to go ahead and book the place as described as one of the best Indian restaurant in London and a Michelin star restaurant. There is absolutely nothing to justify this. While ambience is nice, the vibes of the place are fairly unprofessional (with staff dropping things on the floor, etc). Food was disappointing too: plates arrived dirty (I'm sorry to point out these details but that's not something I expect when going to a restaurant, especially a Michelin star rated place!), portions were small and in all honesty the beer pairing menu a joke (with one paired bottle shared across the whole table - I was expecting one paired beer per person at least). It was nice to receive a birthday dessert, so I appreciate that. I overall don't think that paying 95£ per person was justified considering the service and food quality. I don't recommend and won't be visiting again Quilon. You can find much better Indian restaurants in London.
It has a very good vibe, the staff were all very helpful and kind. The service was amazing, and especially the food. Recommended for anyone who appreciates Indian cuisine
What a relief after the constraints of the last few months to go out to a dinner of this quality. delicious food!
Quieter than normal due to spacing but same professional service and exquisite food!
Great food. Excellent service. Would definitely go again
We always have a fabulous time when we visit Quilon, and this night was no exception. The Chill Cauliflower was perfect, as always, as was the lamb shank. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Great food, great service, lovely place. Would highly recommend!
Excellent food, ambience and service. Great value for Sunday Brunch
Amazing food in a relaxed atmosphere. We went for the tasting menu which was fantastic, very tasty and very filling! Would highly recommend.
Lovely setting, excellent staff and delicious food
A joy to experience. The attention to flavours made every dish standout. I will be visiting again
Food was delicious and uniquely different from standard northern Indian restaurants. Staff was very helpful and made excellent selections for us. Highly recommend.
Took the vegetarian tastin menu, impressive selection well presented and served
Still one of our favourites in London
A repeat visit, this time with my wife's son and my son. Warm greeting and nice table. Ordered dishes to share. Pre dinner given some delicious poppadoms and selection of tasty dips, then given a hot red drink which we all enjoyed. Prawn masala was tasty, Malabar lamb biryani was similarly well enjoyed. Chicken pepper masala was a hit as was the chick pea curry.
Great ambience, delicious food and fantastic service, look forward to returning.
Excellent food, my only niggle was that soft drinks were very expensive
Great meal at Quilon. My friend is vegan and the chef made a special curry for her main. There were other vegan options as starters and sides. Good service and lots of space.
Was a amazing experience, staff were friendly and the food was delicious.
Excellent service and delicious food, as usual. Thank you.
Been to Quilon several times and it has never failed to meet expectations. This visit was no different. Will need to visit again after all the restrictions are removed so that we can make use of the Ala Carte menu.
Wonderful restaurant with wonderful service. The wait staff is attentive, the food fantastic, and the ambiance superb.
Ragby was amazing, tailoring the menu to meet our specific needs. Prawns masala and lamb shank were the highlights!
excellent - looked after my son's extreme allergies very well.
We tasted the brunch menu on Saturday and it was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant best Indian restaurant in London
very sofisticated dishes, second time and will repeat. The starters are incredible. very good service too.
Excellent and friendly service. I would highly recommend going.
