Light of India – at last a London hotel restaurant that delivers

Dec 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Readers Contributions

Locals in South Kensington know a good thing when they find it and the Light of India turned out to be a gem of a find.

Owned and run by a local London hotel, the Montana, this unpretentious restaurant serves some of the best Indian native recipes in the area.  The guys at Hotel-Assist were invited round for a trial run and we will be back!

A maximum of 10 tables covered by 3 waiters ensures that service is fast and attentive.  Whilst its not the Bombay Brasserie, neither are its prices and a good meal with trimmings will not exceed £25.

Of particular note is the Jalfrezi.  Plenty of peppers and freshly cooked, this is a spicy timebomb in the mouth which progressively sets fire to your senses!  This dish is a universal benchmark for all Jalfrezis!

A decent wine list also helps but they are a little on the expensive side so be careful.

As we say, not fancy but excellent value for money.

To find this gem simply head to the main traffic lights at the junction of Cromwell Road and Gloucester Road and look for the Montana Hotel.  It is literally two minutes walk from Gloucester Road tube.

Of course, just around the corner is the more flambouyant Bombay Brasserie and we can not finish off witout congratulating them on winning the Indian restaurant of the year award.  Well done BB !

Light of India; 67-69 Gloucester Road London SW7 4PG

  1. The light of India is in fact a very poor dining experience all round from every aspect, staff, food, taste

  2. The above adverse comment should be ignored as the writer gives no details about what the problem was.
