We made a reservation for Saturday night, so glad we did! It was very busy. We were greeted at the door by the restaurant manager who stated our name as we approached him. He showed us three different tables of two to choose from. We started with the red wine list, we chose the 'for smoky... read more

We arrived on a horrible wet and windy Saturday night to a very warm welcome from front of house. Our waitress was also really friendly and could not have been more helpful with advise on ordering as this is not your usual 'run of the mill' Indian restaurant. Although we decided on the 2 course menu, we were delighted to... More

We visited on Friday evening, a party of 11, the food was excellent, the staff chose a set menu for us, it was first class, the variety and quality of the food was exceptional, and the hospitality was friendly and professional. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Brighton. It's very different from most Indian restaurants. £40 per head including... More

It was like there was a party in my mouth, and everyone's invited! In India. During the summer. Indian summer, you get a free shot of curry sauce between courses it's awesome.

I live in Brighton and this is the first restaurant I take family and friends who come to visit. You won't get a chicken korma or a biriani but what you will get is something much tastier. Very authentic and friendly, beautiful decor highly reccomend

I have eaten at the restaurant on 4 occasions now while staying in Brighton for work. I keep returning to the restaurant because I know I can rely on the excellent service, top quality food and pleasant ambience. The staff are very helpful when you need assistance in what to order. Most of all it is the food that I... More

We wanted to go to the veggie restaurant next door but they were fully booked.We turned around and saw the indian Summer. Actually I am thanking the " terre a terre" to have refused us. The indian meal was excellent. Good size portion, nice flavours, dish well presented. Staff is discret but efficient. Will definitely go back.
