SquareMeal Review of
Bistro at St. James' Court, A Taj Hotel
Housed in St. James' Court, A Taj Hotel, Bistro manages to hold its own against established neighbours such as Bank Westminster and
Michelin-starred Quilon thanks to its plush interiors and please-all Anglo-European menu with ‘British Asian’ add-ons. Soft seats and gentle
lighting contribute to the cosy atmosphere, which is matched by international classics ranging from bouillabaisse, Caesar salad and grilled vegetable tian to fish and chips, homemade ravioli with
sage butter or grilled rib-eye with béarnaise sauce. Alternatively, follow the spice trail with chicken tikka masala, rogan josh or Malaysian red snapper laksa with steamed noodles, before chilling
out with a plate of tiramisu, coffee ‘soil’ and edible flowers. On sunny days, ask for a table in the hotel’s pretty courtyard, which is a world away from Westminster’s hubbub.
