Situated in the bustling lanes, snuggled between terre a terre and toni and guy. A beautiful victorian building with high ceilings and original features. Adorned with indian street images and candlelit walls, you are sure to enjoy your experience here

Visited on a Sunday evening with some family members. From start to finish I cannot fault our experience here. The service was impeccable, the staff both friendly and professional. They were particularly helpful with catering for a member of our group who has a slight nut sensitivity. The flavours in the food were wonderful, with subtle and clever spicing, and... More

The B&B at which we were staying recommended this restaurant and we're glad they did. Indian Summer is located close to the Palace pier and is easy to find, just a little way up East Street. Inside, the decor is clean and minimalist; a far cry from the gaudy interiors usually favoured by Indian restaurants, and the lighting is low,... More

I can't praise Indian Summer enough, a jewel of... More

Possibly the best curry I have ever eaten. Delicious Indian food, beautifully presented. We tried the tandoori chicken which was excellent. In between courses they brought refreshing sorbets ; The lime and basil proved a real hit. Modern decor and a relaxed atmosphere.Definitely worth a visit.

A very nice indian restaurant, with a more modern take on indian food, nothing too spicy for those of you who dont like it really 'hot', and the portions are more nouvelle cuisine than 'hearty' although very tatsy, many may feel that the volume is not quite enough for th eprice paid

This is a really great restaurant in Brighton that servers contemporary Indian food and they really know their stuff with regards special diets - what a breath of fresh air that is! The service is excellent but not intrusive, and the food is pretty special, as are the wines. We had the wine flight and were not disappointed. My wheat... More
