“The blandest curry I've ever had!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We went on a Saturday night and as a group with mostly west midlanders our curry standards were quite high! The starter was nice but tasted like an average tikka massala, the main course was a slow cooked lamb dish with red chilli's. It literally tasted of coconut and lamb, unbelievably bland. I sent it back which was delt with excellently by the maanager and he sent myself and friend another lamb dish. The chef had coated our lamb in chilli flakes (I guess he thought we were on stag do) but when I said it was bland I meant no flavour not that it wasn't hot enough. The Chef was obviously taking the Michael but the joke was on him because the food was tasteless. I've had better food in scummy little curry houses in worcester than this place which was a shame because the front of house staff were brilliant.

“Its not your typical Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

8 of us went for my birthday, great food as usual and good service. Indian summer has modern style and service, a great fine dining experience (amuse bouche etc) whilst sampling the delights of the Indian sub-continent,

“Disappointed... bland lunch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Went there for lunch after reading the reviews on here. Waited ages for drinks even though the place was nearly empty.
Food was extremely bland. The sauce accompanying the chicken dish on the set lunch menu tasted like gravy not a curry sauce. One of the dishes had the texture of and tasted like trail mix and way too much coriander. Mean with the portion sizes, poppadoms and sauces. Pakoras were OK but no different to the ones from Sainsburys. Not the usual curries on the menu but no new flavours, nothing tasty or exciting either.
Would not recommend and would not return. Poor value for money.
