The Quilon Restaurant is situated in Buckingham Gate, a stones throw from Buckingham Palace and The Houses of Parliament. The building where Quilon is located was the former residence to guests of Buckingham Palace and it retains the sophistication of those bygone days. With its beautifully understated interior and peaceful ambience, Quilon is an oasis of calm and tranquillity.
Executive Chef Sriram Aylur is passionate about the philosophy behind Quilon – a passion for modern southern Indian coastal cuisine, a dedication to the freshest ingredients and a playful desire to blend traditional home-cooking with modern dishes for a thrilling and unique dining experience. Sriram imports more fresh Indian spices than any other Indian restaurant in Britain and he grinds and mixes them carefully to create special recipes for Quilon. His goal of creating contemporary South Indian fare, without compromising the soul of the cuisine has been achieved through a genuine love of food and a real understanding of the cultural and ethnic diversity of the region.
At Quilon, modern healthy dishes are created with flair, style and with a deep respect for authenticity. Seafood is of course central, with specialities including Seafood Moilee – cubes of halibut, grouper, tiger prawns and cubes of potato gently
poached in a moilee sauce, Lobster with kokum and mango and whole Sea-Bass with goan green and red masala. More traditional fare such as Chicken Roast and Malabar Lamb Biryani sit happily alongside the chef’s more progressive dishes such as Pan Fried Duck Breast, Venison Coconut Fry, illustrating Aylur’s dedication to modern Indian cuisine with a contemporary twist.
The tantalising food is accompanied by a world-class wine & beer list put together by Sriram himself. He has handpicked a variety of wines and beers that complement the contrasting flavours and subtle textures featured on the menu at Quilon. Twelve years of faithful patronage prove that Quilon is that rare thing, a restaurant that suits all tastes, moods and occasions with unequivocal success and distinction.
