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 a great time here - recommended by a local friend. Food was delicious. We had the Masala Dosa, Pakoras and two veggie Thalis. Service was friendly and we didn't feel rushed. The vegan paneer is tofu which was fine but thought they had come up with something more exotic to be like the paneer! Flavours we're good - roti was awesome!

I cannot even begin to describe how incredible this restaurant is. From the minute my partner and I walked in we had nothing but great service, the staff were so accommodating and the food was absolutely outstanding, especially if you have any diet requirements. The menu is very versatile. We will be returning, multiple times I’m sure.

Eating out can be a lottery so its so refreshing to see a restaurant that has their customers interests at heart. We had a delicious meal nothing was too much in terms of the service. Especially when I forgot to mention my food intolerance on ordering they sorted it all out without any hesitation. Silly me was just so excited to see so much gf and df options! Will definitely be going back 😊well done and keep up the good work

Service aux petits soins, vraiment sympathique. Juste un peu déçu par la déco (les photos du site web sont un peu trompeusres) et pas entièrement convaincu par les plats au vu des prix.

We dined here on Saturday 18th July 2020. The food was exceptional and the staff tentative and polite. We both said that this was the best Indian food we had ever tasted and we have tasted a lot!!! We both ordered something completely new and it did not disappoint. Beautiful food and restaurant and brilliant staff! Well done.
