Quilon Review
5 Star Rating
6 January 2016QuilonTags: London, UK, Indian reviewsThe Bill: £68 per head

Quilon is located in Buckingham Gate, it’s a Michelin-star restaurant serving fine South Indian cuisine in elegant surroundings, the presentation of the dishes are on-trend and taste divine. Each member of staff was friendly and informative with any questions we had. Quilon is a large restaurant, but somehow manages to remain quite intimate. The menu has lots to offer and its times like this when you wish you could eat more than you can manage. Everything we did manage to eat was simply exquisite, and we will undoubtably have to visit again in the future to order more from their menu.

We started our evening with an aperitif, two glasses of Laurent Perrier Rose. A well-balanced champagne and a nice start to the evening.

To begin we ordered a Mini Masala Dosa, a delicious dish with Rice and Lentil Pancakes filled with Tempered Potatoes and Vegetables, served with Sambhar, a super tasty vegetable broth. My partner ordered the Chicken Sukke, a dish with Chicken Cubes Marinated with Roasted Ground Lentils, Chilli, Coriander and Cumin. The Sukke was packed with so many incredible flavours, making it thoroughly enjoyable.

“The care, attention, and flavours were exquisite.”

Moving on to our main course, I ordered the Malabar Lamb Biryani. The Lamb was cooked with traditional Malabar Spices in a sealed pot and once again delivered incredible flavours, this was served with Basmati Rice. My partner ordered the Prawn Masala, the Prawns were Marinated and cooked with Onion Tomato, Mustard, Curry Leaves and Coconut Masala. We added sides of Lemon Rice, which is tossed in Lime Juice, Curry Leaves, Split Bengal Gram and Pure Ghee and we were also quite tempted by the Malabar Paratha. These dishes were no ordinary dishes, the care, attention, and flavours were exquisite in each and every mouthful.

We couldn’t manage a dessert which was a terrible shame, but we ended the evening more than satisfied and hope to return one day to sample their dessert menu. Our chosen wine for the evening was 2011, L'Aurage, Côtes de Castillon, Bordeaux, France, a full-bodied, well balanced wine that went down very well.
