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.

Extremely disappointed with the food - previous menu was far better. Dishes were lacking in flavour, reminiscent of a supermarket ready-meal. Presentation was dissapointing. Service was poor, rushed and kept walking away before we had finished placing our order. Rolling eyes when we ordered more starters. Other than that perfect.

Visits to Indian Summer are always enjoyable dining experiences. The food is consistently delicious, the staff are welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed...and the menu caters for vegetarian/vegan/dairy-free and gluten-free diners which means we can eat there with any of our friends or relatives!

Service was great, food was fresh but bland and lacked depth, finesse and flavour.

Superb meal. Always great service from the team at Indian Summer. Bring back the Pork Dish though... all of the food is great but we especially used to like the Pork main dish :)

Thank you for another amazing dining experience at Indian Summer! Everything about it is perfect, from the warm greeting on arrival, the delicious food, the attentive service and the general atmosphere. Still one of my favourite restaurants in Brighton!

Always lovely food and top class service at this premium quality restaurant. Not a place for a cheap meal, but the higher price range is more than justified by the quality of the food both in taste, inventiveness and ingredients. For myself, a great place to eat on a special occasion. I just wish they'd reintroduce the chocolate teacup dessert from some years back. Easily the best pudding I've ever eaten!

Have been going to Indian Summer since it opened and have never had anything other than a fantastic meal. The service is wonderful and the little extras such as the cup of soup before the meal proper and the sorbet between courses all add up to a special experience. My only regret is that I never have room for a dessert!

Great food and service, nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Food portions are good not too much food, free mint water provided on the table. Lots of nice touches with the fixed price menu, don't want to spoil the surprises. Minor point, Table near the door was a bit uncomfortable to sit at as I was on a bench.

Where we sat (near the front window, at the side by the wall), it was too dark for us to read the menu without difficulty, and we were told that the light could not be improved. The food and drink were excellent, though not cheap; interesting and full of flavour . I would recommend the boar. Service was very good. Clearly the place was popular, even on a Tuesday evening.
