About
Flora Indica is a unique lounge, bar and dining destination in the heart of South Kensington, located close to Earls Court station on the esteemed Old Brompton Road. Flora Indica’s modern Indian sharing plates menu and botanic gin collection, pays homage to the Scottish Botanists who travelled throughout India during the Victorian period, exploring and cataloguing thousands of species of exotic plants, previously unknown to Britain. As a result, the book entitled Flora Indica was published in London in 1855. The design of restaurant is also a tribute to this, with an eclectic mix of Harris tweed, steampunk, Victorian scientific curiosities, teak and a touch of Kensington residential elegance.

Landed in London today and met up with a colleague for a late dinner and found this on Trip Advisor nearby. Great atmosphere, excellent service, and refreshing twist on flavor combinations. The interior design had a glamorous SteamPunk feel.

Not your typical menu but I’d highly recommend the small plates. They do a few typical curries (rogan josh and makhani) but the small plates have amazing variety. Would highly recommend.
