Don't expect to receive your food before anybody else receives their food the food is trafficked out of the kitchen for everybody at the same time the quality is fairly good but the price does not match it is too expensive and there are at least three better Indian restaurants in Riyadh.

The food was good, service was good but unfortunately the food was not enough for the price. We ordered the lamb and the chicken curries which respectively tasted amazing with good flavours but there were only 2-3 pieces of meat per dish and too much curry sauce.This seems quite unfair for the price. Will most likely not visit again.

One of the pioneers in opening up "North Indian cuisine" in Riyadh, Indian Summer is steady in popularizing the pseudo Indian taste, mellowed down perfectly to suit the local palette. Definitely not authentic & definitely not truly Indian in any sense. Their masalas and gravies all share a common ground - one base. Therefore it's so insipid but truly colorful.... More

The place is so awesome that you would want to visit it all over again forever. The food and the service was excellent . One of my favorites is their butter chicken. It is simply superb.

I was here with my family for dinner, the service and food were great. Price also was reasonable. You are recommended to book a table before go.

The prices are very high. 16 riyals for a cup of soup? The quality of the food is very low. Things were burned and no one seems to care. There are many more Indian restaurants in Riyadh Choose another.

All of the dishes looked well-cooked and the presentation was nice. The viands were all made extra spicy--perfect for my already acquired Bicolano palate. Whenever I asked an Indian colleague to comment on the restaurant, I usually get this: It is a good one but the dishes do not really fall under authentic Indian cuisine. The flavors are intentionally softened... More

I bought Chicken and Mutton biriyani from here last week. I dont recognise any of the spices they have in that biriyani. For sure there is a lot of colour and salt. Not going back there. I dont know about others dished, but if this is the case of biryani, I can imagine how other dishes will be. And yeah,... More
