Since it opened in 1982, Bombay Brasserie has become of London’s most highly regarded Indian restaurants. Hundreds of regulars were heartbroken when it closed last year, despite having plenty of new-wave Indian eateries to choose from. On January 5th, BB reopened after months of extensive refurbishment and unveiled a larger, more decadent interior and an equally impressive new menu.
Interior design firm, Chhada Siembieda & Associates, have stayed faithful to the Bombay Colonial era but given the venue a chic and contemporary twist. The main dining room has been decorated in subtle shades of gold and champagne, while sparkling chandeliers give the room a warm and inviting glow.
A new bar area provides the perfect spot to indulge in one of their cocktails before dinner.
The conservatory area has been transformed and provides a light, airy and less formal dining space – ideal for laid-back lunches.
An open show kitchen with counter seating allows diners to check out the skills of BB’s culinary team.
The new menu has been overseen by the legendary Hemant Oberoi, Corporate Chef for the Taj Group of hotels. Authentic old-world recipes sit alongside modern innovations on the evening a la carte, while traditional tiffin boxes make an excellent lunchtime treat. Signature dishes include slow-cooked lamb shanks in a delicate saffron curry; curry leaf scallops with tomato chutney; and chargrilled monkfish wrapped in a Bombay Brasserie newspaper.
