Welcome to Nizam Indian Restaurant

With our Kitchen Team of celebrated Chefs each specialised in their own field, we are able to provide our guests with authentic Indian flavours transformed into a celebration of mouth watering innovative Indian cuisine, catered to our guests by a warm and friendly Front of House team who have an eye for perfection.
This prestigious venue is located in the historic town of East Grinstead, situated on the old part of the High Street behind Middle Row, in a 16th Century Tudor Building which has been Grade II Listed in order to keep it in character with the surrounding environment. Serving the town since 1988, the brand has become well known throughout all of Sussex and much of Kent and Surrey, having built an enviable reputation for quality and service. It is through our attention to detail that we have managed to build a large and loyal customer base, which is growing all the time.

Experience an authentic unique ambience

The Restaurant interior of this venue has been designed to combine old and new. The space benefits from using exposed original timber beams incorporating them into dividing screens. This provides a degree of separation and privacy between dining guests, combined with a modern contemporary style that creates a warm, intimate and relaxed ambience.
Our unique interior creates a combination of spaces, allowing us to cater for intimate dining for one, two, or more in the main dinning room. As well as for larger groups in our contemporary private banquet room, with over 50 seats in both secluded and open areas were sure to find the right table for you.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Good food, poor service

There are some decent curries here, although the service leaves a lot to be desired. Recommend the poppadums for a starter. They're a decent size and come with onions, lime pickle, mango chutney and soured cream. These came fairly quickly, however I should point out that my coke was flat when... read more

It advertises 'open from noon' but was securely locked at 12:30 on a Friday. Tapping on the leaded light window gained no response but after a few more minutes outside in the January rain they answered my mobile phone call. WARNING: If visiting before 13:00 make sure that your mobile is charged! Food was relatively expensive because the 2 4... More

We have been visiting this award winning restaurant for years. We can honestly say we have never had a bad experience. We eat at many Indian restaurants on our travels but always come here regularly because it is quite simply the best indian food in the country bar none. Despite always being busy the service is friendly and prompt. I... More

We have tried many Indian restaurants in our area but this one is by far the best. The food is always delicious, oven hot and plentiful. The owner of the restaurant not only plays mein host but also on occasion chefs,resulting in great food all of the time. The staff are attentive and friendly. Last but not least the restaurant...

We went as a group of 4 midweek. The service was quick and friendly and the food was flavoursome and plenty of it. We struggled to finish some dishes. We will be back as this Indian is one of our favourites.

Went here on New Year's Day evening and the place was packed, which is a good sign! We enjoyed our meal and the service was spot on.

Me and my family have been going to Monsoon for our curry nights for a while now but my wife thought we should try something new, I wasn't to keen on the idea but just went with it. We chose Nizam since it was just opposite. I ended up really liking the Nizam, the food was great and Service was... More

Having decided to have a relaxed Friday evening after a long week we ordered takeaway from Nizam at 7.30pm. We chose Nizam despite not using them before, based up recommendations. Unfortunately, our experience fell woefully short of the seemingly glowing reviews here. After placing our order at 7 30pm and having not received our delivery by 8.30pm, I called the... More

Apart from being understaffed, unresponsive to complaints, unable to bring drinks for 45mins, unable to provide food for nearly 2 hours, and providing cold food after a 2 hour wait.... this was OK.
