Indian Essence by Atul Kochhar
The food is absolutely outstanding! Delicious and authentic. I can’t believe it has taken us this long to go. It is quiet expensive but it is worth it! Can’t wait to go again!
Food was great . We had the tasting menu with wine. The singer was excellent providing atmospheric background music but still allowing you to converse.
I will be booking again very soon, the food and service was on another level. I couldn't recommend this restuarant enough if i could give 10 stars i would !!
Very well organised we were seated without any delay and turned up a little bit early the wine is very affordable.
The selections for starters is fabulous I had the rabbit delicious , also a great choice of meat and fish plus veggie dishes great flavours , give it a go I don’t think you will be disappointed and it is easy to park in the evening!!!
Sublime food and service!!! Can’t wait to go back!
An absolutely amazing experience! Food was great value and delicious.
Amazing food on the tasting menu. The only downside was having to bolt down dessert, not served until 9.55, and no wine served with it, despite having paid for the wine flight. Otherwise, everything was great.
Excellent as always, cocktails, sauces, pickles breads and mains all outstanding.
Always consistently great food and service and I have been going for years now
The food was amazing and really authentic. The goat curry as well as the aubergine dish were outstanding!
We were 4 adults and 2 babies out for lunch, our first experience of taking the babies to a nice restaurant, and the staff at Indian Essence couldn't have been more accommodating. On top of that the food was sublime. I am on a restricted diet at the moment and they were able to advise on which dishes were or could be suitable for me to eat. It was the first really good meal I've had in months! COVID permitting we have already booked to go back.
As expected a fabulous meal. Good range of choices from the set menu. Salmon starter was perfectly cooked, followed by a really tender lamb curry. Accompanied naan, rice and spinach were all really tasteful. Beautifully presented. Restaurant busy and lively considering it was a Monday.
Would go again.
Would have enjoyed the evening 100% more had I not had to shout to be heard over the live musician.
Service slow at the beginning.
Biriyani plentiful and flavourful.
Dhal disappointing and small.
Overall 7 out of ten.
About 20% overpriced.
Take home surplus nicely handled.
Food was delicious but not overly welcoming by waiting staff. Also was over charged for drinks despite advising the waiter that we were driving and he did not apologise, and it felt like we were being taken advantage of as two female friends out having dinner! But nice touch as remember it was a special occasion but plate put on the table in a blank way no happy birthday. Manager did come over and say happy birthday! Not much atmosphere they need to sort that out to improve the overall experience!
All round fantastic meal. Perfect service. And a real treat for my wife to have Atul personally wish her Happy Birthday. Will recommend and return
Delicious food as always and a lovely update to the cocktail list. Would be nice to see a vegetarian tasting menu advertised.
Very friendly she helpful staff voice of menu outstanding and the food was beautifully presented and most importantly delicious.We cannot wait to go back
They coped with the 10pm curfew brilliantly.
Amazing food and excellent service. Will definitely be back again soon.
This restaurant is special, clearly demonstrates its connection to its originator, and is a hugely welcome addition to the social life of the Bromley area. Our food was delicious, the service was both gracious and helpful. We look forward to going again.
Food was immense. Great flavours. And well priced wine list. Highly recommended
Lovely restaurant, delicious flavours and busy ambiance
The food is first class, but the service was a bit slow due to it being so busy
Friendly, attentive and efficient service by two members of staff. Absolutely wonderful food. I’d definitely recommend as the whole experience is well worth it.
Chose the tasting menu and was extremely satisfied. Good food and good service.
and desert - Orange and white chocolate mouse was just great
Amazing food and excellent service, great value too
We had a lovely set lunch here. It was good value for £15 as the quality and flavours were amazing. I really recommend it here
Always a pleasure to eat here. Have introduced so many people.
Excellent food. Great taste and lovely presentation
We have eaten at Indian Essence a few times and the reason we return is because the food is so good. In these challenging times it's amazing that the kitchen still functions to such a high standard, a credit to the chefs and Atul for making this happen. On our most recent visit the only odd thing was all the staff were masked up, which was to be expected but it was rather hard to hear them when talking. I would suggest a clear visor instead making communication easier, as restaurant ambience can be unpredictably loud at times. A great meal was had by all though and long may it continue.
Hard to review in post COVID days. Slight criticism in I thought the tables and therefore chairs were too close to each other, assuming a 2 metre rule is required. Apart from that A good place to dine.
The only disappointment was that when we asked what the fish of the day was, the waiter got it wrong. He told us it was plaice and we were served cod. When we queried the fish he checked with the chef who said they had run out of plaice and substituted cod. Although the cod was excellent we should have been told before being served.One of my guests would have chosen something else had she known.
Mediocre food. Nothing special really. The actual restaurant is nice and buzzing, service good.
No social distancing, overcrowded and could hear every word from the table next to us we were so close. Lack of flavour in starters and kept having to ask for our wine bottle when our glasses were empty. Absolute mayhem during a pandemic and disappointing for a higher end Indian restaur
Excellent service, Fantastic Food. Never disappoints.
Very nice food and not you're 'usual' Indian. Excellent different dishes.
Excellent dining experience. Food, as always, inventive and delicious!
We all agreed that was the best Indian food experience we’ve had in the UK! The hospitality was second to none, the food was delicious, and the drinks complemented the food perfectly.
Of particular note - the rose petal essence cocktail was stunning, and the espresso martini (my favourite cocktail) was one of the best I’ve ever had. Food-wise, every one of our party of 6 had a different appetiser, and they were all stunning. The portion sizes for these and the mains were very generous! But thankfully, we also made room for a delicious dessert.
This was a family get-together and a birthday celebration for three of the group, and we couldn’t have asked for a lovelier time.
We’ll definitely be back for the tasting menu!
Great night celebrating our Wedding Anniversary, will be going again for sure !
