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.

Went for a weekday lunch - nicely relaxed and not crowded. Might well be pretty full in the evening. Decor was lovely and entire restaurant spotless. Service excellent and food very good - modern Indian. Dishes were tasty but light - perfect.

superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely

mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
