Very sweet as lots of sugar seemed to be added to every dish. So not to our taste. Very mild flavours, even though we ordered medium spice. Have eaten many dishes from India and have several friends who are from this region. This is the worst Indian food I have ever had. The service was OK, as was the price.... More

We had a superb meal at the Viceroy,last weekend.we have not been there for a good few years,and have forgotten how great it is.The food was excellent especially the Balti curry,and the service was first class.I would highly recommend the Viceroy,we would go there more often,but there is no decent pubs in that area for a pre-meal drink.

Ordered a takeaway from here and the king prawn madras was perfect! There were plenty of vegetarian choices on the menu and everything is reasonably priced. Will order again next time I visit Polegate.

When marooned at the Premier Inn u have the choice to dine in (the usual) or take 5 min drive here. It's not a spectacular setting abd quite dark inside. Food seems good if not presented very attractively. Portion was pretty huge, I was too stuffed to finish. I would sacrifice a bit of plate filling for a nicer look... More

Wow, after the disappointment last week, no names, it was with much eagerness that we went back to this highly rated Indian. Needless to say we were NOT left wanting. It was without doubt Fantastic. I had a Chicken Tikka Balti Madras with Egg rice. Outstanding!! The wife had The Special Wow!

An off the cuff visit on New Year's eve was rewarded with an excellent meal & attentive service. This is our fourth or fifth visit to The Viceroy and would certainly recommend as one of the finest Indian Restaurants in the area.

Having experienced TheViceroy cuisine in Newhaven backin the 80's and 90's, I had high expectations of the food at the Polegate restaurant. I absolutely was not disappointed!! Moist, tender chicken, distinctive Indian spices and personable service sealed it for me. Highly recommended !!! Bob
