The waiter was very accommodating and recommended curry to suit 3 children aged 6-10 - they loved it! I had the Tuna which was excellent, tasty and exiting. Only regret - should have had the two course meal.

I live locally and come here a lot. Quite pricey, because they only do set s, but definitely worth it. I don't think I've ever eaten better Indian food anywhere else. Love the mini palate cleansing mango sorbets etc. Feels quite upmarket, but not stuffy.

Ate here with a couple of friends. IS offers a very comprehensive , reasonably priced fixed price menu. Lots of choice of meat, fish and vegetarian starter and main courses, most of which can be prepared gluten free. Friendly and attentive staff and a good ambiance. I'm going to have to come back several times to work my way though... More

This restaurant serves very small portions of fairly straightforward Asian food. I liked the food but is massively overpriced

Went for the lunch menu. It was ok- nothing amazing and definitely not the cheapest. I had heard great things about this place but it was very very average. Also had a bad experience with the service- card machine not working and the owner(? or manager) said it was probably that I had no money on my card. Very rude,... More

After 15years in Brighton and walking past the restaurant last night Monday 18th August. My partner and I had a wonderful meal. Both agreed when we eat out and want Indian meal. We will only go there

The food is exceptionally delicious and well presented. It is not like those ordinary Indian restaurants in UK, serving English Indian food. It is authentic Indian food and use good quality of ingredients and spices. However we did not know they only provide 2-course meal for £22 in the evening until we were offered the menu. I think they should... More

Lovely decor and plenty of room between tables. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing. We normally go to another Indian but it was full so we thought we would give this one a try. It will now be our number one choice when we come to Brighton. Despite us arriving late for our table,...

An ok atmosphere and disinterested waiters I can deal with, but the whole point of a restaurant is the food which in this case is nothing but bland. The quality of the meat is obviously very good, it just wasn't excuted well in the slightest. The sauces had no flavour and everything seemed under seasoned and a little dry. Considering... More

I went to the Indian Suummer last evening with my wife, daughter and son-in-law . I have met Minesh the co-owner on a previous occasion when he visited my daughters house to teach us how to cook a true indian meal. The restaurant was buzzing but we were welcomed as if the staff were waiting for us to arrive. I... More
