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 really enjoyed our evening with you. It's been a few months and we remembered why we enjoy it so much. Food and service were excellent as ever.

This is our first visit to Indian Summer and it was a delight. The service was lovely and the waiters each took time to explain our dishes to us when we arrived. I went for the vegan thali which was all so tasty and the tofu curry was rich and creamy. My boyfriend went for the pork ribs, chicken tikka and basmati rice which was equally tasty. The poppadoms and chutneys were also a fantastic start to the meal. We can’t wait to visit again soon!

We privately hired Indian Summer for our wedding breakfast and it was wonderful - especially considering COVID-19. Fantastic food, attentive service, and all our needs met, with tables laid out according to households and flower petals and champagne on the table of the brides. Thank you so much to all at Indian Summer.

Our first visit & only second excursion to eat out after lockdown 2! Loved the food excellent tastes & subtle heat from a good mix of spices. All meat dishes were really excellent tender meat all served at a good temperature. Overall excellent meal & eating out experience.

My wife and I pre-booked for a Saturday night.... We enjoyed a delicious meal clearly made and presented by professional chefs. Waiting staff were incredibly knowledgeable. We concluded with an Indian Summer Sunset cocktail - delicious. Overall a fantastic experience. Thank you Indian Summer.

The food and drink was excellent, and the service first class. The place is expensive for Indian food, but the quality is high. The barramundi was outstanding. As for the atmosphere, because of Brighton being in Tier 2, the restaurant was quite empty. This was obviously nothing to do with Indian Summer itself. The music and friendly waiters made up for the lack of usual dining ambiance. We'll be back when things are back to normal.

Real shame everything was good , mussels for starters were possibly the smallest of mussels and also the portion the sauce that accompanied it was however very tasty. Overall strong £70 meal that was just over £90 . Will not return for that reason , when I’m Brighton you are spoilt for choice and pricing structures.

Excellent quality and good value, not your average curry house after a night out. This should be your night out to enjoy the food and service.
