This is not your typical Indian Restaurant. The food is light, but spicy and presentation is excellent. The Marsala Dosa is great and I would definitely recommend the Thali platter. Not a cheap place to eat but excellent food.

A scallop starter was so overcooked that it resembled a puree. A mutton curry was mostly sauce, served with just a few pieces of meat, rice & salad. Pretty poor value at around £26 for 2 courses. A sea bream fared much better.

Booked at Indian Summer as the Chilli Pickle only had late sittings available. 5 people in our party and all of us loved the food, service and atmosphere of the place. Can't fault it, a real treat, great food, unpretentious, attentive service, great value and good portion sizes. We'd all happily go again. Thanks to all the staff for a... More

Here is a restaurant which claims to serve real Indian food. Its décor has very little to do with India, but that is not a drawback. We wanted a small supper, and asked for dhal – the simplest of Indian dishes. We have had better and hotter dhal in many other Indian restaurants in the UK, not to mention in... More

My good friends chose this place to eat and I was more than happy to join in. I am particularly partial to a good steak or fish of any sort but I was willing to go with the flow. Being honest I do like Indian food but I had never eaten vegetarian. The whole meal was outstanding, great choices on... More

Unusual restaurant as not many dishes on the menu, food was good, not sure if I would go there again, very busy place so a testament in its self, service charge added to bill with out asking which is a bit of a no no really

Great atmosphere and amazing food. Authentic Indian taste - the best Indian food I have eaten outside India. Lassi delicious. Lovely extra touches like appetiser of delicious soup which my son wanted to take home in a flask, and mouth cleansing sorbet. We all ordered different starters and mains and they were totally fabulous. Service brilliant. Highly, highly recommended.

We have been wanting to visit for a long time and booked for a special occasion - I noted this on the booking and did think it was a shame there was not an acknowledgement of this. We were served by different people including the manager who were all professional, friendly and personable. There is a set menu which had... More
