About Quilon

Among the new generation of Indian restaurants specialising in lighter sauces and a more eclectic menu, Quilon is the sister restaurant of the famous Bombay Brasserie. The interior is an elegant mix of rich muted colours and the bar is a particularly popular place to meet. The delicious food is described as ’Coastal Cuisine’ and dishes such as seafood, crustacea and a variety of specialities are available. Dishes includes Char-grilled shrimps with lime and chilli, lobster with tangy Goan pickle and fish curry with coconut. Quilon received a "Five Star Diamond Award" from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences and was granted its first Michelin star in 2008.
