“Lounge India Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I have visited Lounge India on 3 occasions now with my partner and my friends and all 3 times have been a great experience. The food is fantastic and the service is excellent. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The menu choice is varied with some alternative dishes to other Indian restaurants. The only thing with this restaurant for them is the location because there is minimal on site parking albeit there are nearby places to park within a short walking distance (max 5mins) so hopefully won't put people off because it is worthwhile visiting. I would say locally one of the best.

“Using spice to cover bland curry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I have only had take away from this place, which in every restaurant is lower quality than what you get if you eat there.

But having seen all the glowing reviews on here I was surprised by the weak curry I was given. I had a duck curry with a tomato sauce and apart from being fairly spicy it had no other flavour. We were also given a free bonus curry which I would be happy to believe was made of nothing more than cabbage, cauliflower, water and yellow food colouring. It was very bland.

Maybe they just had a bad night, but it wasn't good at all.

“brilliant best indian in sandy and biggleswade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Ate in here with family tonight and it was superb. Food was fresh and tasty and was the best I have had for ages. We also had a home delivery in the week which was very good. The gulab Garmin for dessert was to die for and the cardamom flavour was perfect. Service was very good, not over the top but equally not ignored. If you live in the area its a must try.

“First Class Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

My wife and I went for an evening meal with four other friends at the Lounge India. The food was superb and the service excellent. Obviously every dish is freshly prepared and all the individual tastes seemed to complement each other so well. The staff are very friendly and attentive working quietly in the background to make the visit very special indeed. I would thoroughly recommend the Lounge India to anyone who enjoys excellent Indian Cuisine.

“Try this restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The site for this restaurant has always been a bit problematic as there's no car park. But in reality, there is no problem as there is all of St Neots Rd to park your car and then a short walk to the restaurant. You could even park in town and again take a short walk. Once inside, there's an ambient and fresh feel with plenty of tables. The food is extremely good and certainly on a par with the other new Indian restaurants in the area. As a family we had a broad range of taste to cater for and I was very happy with the Monipuri Chamak, which was generous in portion as well as being spicy (although not overpowering), good depth of flavour without being oily or harsh. Overall the dishes are well priced and there are an assortment of week day offers, which actually are great value. If you don't mind a walk, try this restaurant. The staff appear genuinely interested in making the experience a happy one for you. The food is very good.
