Our stunning London Indian Restaurant Lounge Bar offers you a unique take on classic Indian dishes using local and seasonal British produce. Close to Earl's Court and West Brompton stations, Flora Indica is a local restaurant with truly international leanings.

Across two floors of stylish and comfortable drinking and dining areas, our food and décor pays homage to the Scottish botanists who travelled India during the early Victorian era. Our modern-Indian menu emphasises delicately-spiced small plates and sometimes lavish main meals. We offer vegan, vegetarian and dairy-free options as standard.

Flora Indica showcases local London beers and houses a collection of special gins alongside fabulous cocktail and wines. Our ground floor Lounge Bar is perfect for after-work cocktails and casual all-day dining. The lower deck Engine Room is a beautiful formal dining space. The restaurant is available for private use to suit your news ways of working and playing, whatever the occasion.

    Flora Indica is a sight to behold. This unique venue is the perfect setting for wedding receptions and corporate events. Our private dining floor can accommodate up to 30 private dining guests on tables of 6 per table until the June 21 Covid restrictions are lifted - 56 people thereafter. There is a dedicated bar for the restaurant where the bartenders make an array of delicious cocktails, with gin being the house speciality in keeping with the botanical theme. There is also an extensive wine and champagne list to suit all tastes. Private-dining guests are asked to choose in advance from a set menu of modern-Indian dishes. Think delicately-spiced, fresh and light dishes rather than the traditional heavy curry-house fayre that one might expect. Flora Indica opens your eyes to another side of Indian dining.

                    Food was outstanding, but sadly the service was quite distracted, slow and not particularly friendly. We noticed all tables were, like us, vying for the attention of the waiters who spent most of the time out of reach.

                    Lovely dinner right in Chelsea. Quiet, good jazz, excellent chicken biryani with the most fantastic yoghurt (pomegranate) I think I've ever tasted. Nice Bellini for me, nice Indian beer for my husband. Good, prompt service. A very pleasant experience. I didn't think it was so expensive. Maybe it feels that way to people who are used to take-out Indian, but this is a nice restaurant, so....

                    Small dishes were ridiculously small. Sweet pea was literally 6 peas cut in half with a teaspoon of rice and small jug of something tasteless to pour over. Prawns were tasty but served warm to cold. Very expensive and very disappointing

                    We decided to go with selection of small plates and enjoyed every dish. This was our second visit and won't be the last.

                    I had a really good meal there last evening. The food was excellent, great selection of drinks, and really friendly staff. The only downside was that I was the only customer - it seems that Covid had led to a number of cancellations, and most of their trade was in takeaway/pickup meals - such a shame, but entirely beyond their control.

                    Lovely food - especially the small plate lamb. Unfortunately it was a bit quiet the evening we dined, but the food made up for it.

                    Inattentive service and small portions. Westernised Indian cuisine that lacks character.

                    Excellent food, delicious wine and good service. There's a slight twist to most dishes so you have everything you'd expect from Indian cuisine and a little more. It's a small nicely decorated restaurant with a calm ambience. Would certainly visit again.

                    Flora Indica is a sight to behold. This unique venue is the perfect setting for wedding receptions and corporate events. Our private dining floor can accommodate up to 30 private dining guests on tables of 6 per table until the June 21 Covid restrictions are lifted - 56 people thereafter. There is a dedicated bar for the restaurant where the bartenders make an array of delicious cocktails, with gin being the house speciality in keeping with the botanical theme. There is also an extensive wine and champagne list to suit all tastes. Private-dining guests are asked to choose in advance from a set menu of modern-Indian dishes. Think delicately-spiced, fresh and light dishes rather than the traditional heavy curry-house fayre that one might expect. Flora Indica opens your eyes to another side of Indian dining.
