I've been living without Indian food for months so I was extremely excited to try Surya. The menu has everything you'd expect from a comprehensive Indian restaurant (northern Indian). I started with Daal Poori and chutneys, a samosa, paneer makhni, and parantha. I had hoped to get a sampler platter or two half portions of dishes, but was told this wasn't possible. All of the dishes were ok, but with a little something missing. The samosas were served with a chinese-style sweet and sour sauce instead of tamarind - the paneer makhni sauce was a little too sweet - and the fresh mint tea (delicious!) was served with italian biscotti (yummy, but bizarre). Three things redeemed the average food: The ambiance and presentation of the food - the attentive and friendly service - and the kufte! Save room for dessert and do NOT miss the kufte (traditional homemade Indian ice cream with cardamom, pistachios, and coconut). It's delicious!

Very smartly decorated restaurant and the food did not disappoint. Staff are friendly and attentive. The food was very well presented (not just the usual stainless steel dishes) and tasted superb. It's not cheap but was definitely worth it. I'd definitely go back.

Had dinner at Syrya, which is well located. The service staff are very friendly. Surprisingly local beer wasn't available but only Asian brands were served. Nice food, but be careful if you are ordering Vindaloo, it is very spicy, even by Indian standards.

We went with quite a big group as it was a farewell dinner for myself. So we did pre order a mixed menu beforehand. They recommended a packaged dinner and it was amazing. so many different things on the table and all was great.

Had such a nice time and every single person in the group loved the food. The dessert was also amazing.

Be sure to try the rice pudding it is very very good!
