Critics Review
A Truly Pan-Indian, Modern Dining Experience!
9/10
Offering authentic, Indian food to the city of Brighton since 2001, Indian Summer’s success has gone from strength to strength over the years. Founded by Minesh Agnihotri (who previously made medical prosthetics) and Byron Swales (whose family was forced to flee Burma in a wooden plane) the two composed a team of extremely talented chefs with experience from all over India in order to deliver a truly pan-Indian, modern dining experience.

We had to ask a couple of times for drinks whereas when Tim is there we never have to ask for anything as he's always got his eye on what customers need

We were so happy with the food and service. The staff managed to be both super efficient, relaxed and knowledgeable which is a wonderful combination! The food was served lovely and hot and had layers of flavour. Would highly recommend.

The best Indian me and my friends have had in a long time. The service was fantastic, we had one vegan and one nut allergy in our group and they couldn’t have been more helpful and thorough. They also tailored the spices to each individual, the thali, both veg and meat was exceptional. We will definitely be returning.

On first glance the menu seems quite limited compared to traditional Indian restaurants However in cliser examination- the dishes are quite unique and the food is fantastic!! Not your regular Indian!

Staff were helpful and knowledgable about the menu and including the wine list. Our food was superb. Flavours that are missed from the tailored ‘chicken tikka masala’ make this a menu that reinvigorates the palate. We loved the small but varied dishes. The meat was tender and the sorbet and spices soup as cleansers and appetisers perfectly timed between meals. The 1000 reviews supports this restaurant and confidently attracts new custom. This was a wonderful find. We will be back.

Indian Summer is the best Indian restaurant in Brighton. The food is inventive and the service exemplary. A real gem.

We don't get to eat in Indian Summer as often as we would like, but when we do, we are never disappointed. The whole dining experience is wonderful from the lovely front of house team to the excellent quality of the food. Definitely one of my most favourite restaurants to eat in and to recommend.

14 hours ago Google Review Disappointing and not what it used to be.... really dont like restaurants where there is a set price menu forcing a minimum spend of £28 for two courses from a rather limited choice, especially for an Indian where mixing and choosing different dishes is part of the fun! Atmosphere was lacking and whilst the staff were attentive, a £14 service charge seemed rather steep for a quiet Thursday evening. And as for the advertised cocktail selection - we tried the elderflower soda water prosecco combo expecting a nice long glass with some ice and maybe a little mint. What we got was a small flute of watered down prosecco for £8! Hmmm - on reflection the morning after, feel rather cheated of our hard earned £135. Try the Ivy instead!!

Tried the Thali this time and it was very good. The best Indian I have tried in this country.

Excellent food and service as usual. A couple of things were hotter than usual and maybe too hot for us. Samphire was far too spicy this time
