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 fantastic time, Staff were amazing and explained all food when placing in front of us and we were even given Christmas Crackers as they realised we were on a Christmas meal out which I had mentioned when booking. Thanks you for a great evening.

The service was excellent and the staff very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We like and eat in many good Indian restaurants so we therefore enjoy spiced food and expected to really enjoy Indian Summer. The food was beautifully prepared and presented but unfortunately we must have chosen badly as both my wife and I found our and each other’s main course too hot.

I had vouchers to the restaurant for my birthday. A few friends and I have been here a few times and it is honestly the best restaurant I think I’ve ever attended. From the start, the service is amazing, the knowledge the staff have about the dishes and drinks to compliment is great, and the food is delicious. Always the first choice for an evening meal out with friends.

Have been many times to this Indian and it is definitely the best in Brighton and in fact the best I have been to in England. Only bettered by some of the places I visited in Hyderabad when I worked there for a short while. Dont expect the normal Indian dishes that you see everywhere else, this place has much better dishes.

Fantastic service from all staff, very attentive. Very tasty food with lots of gluten free options, slightly expensive so would only come on a special occasion. Friendly relaxing atmosphere with well spaced out tables.

Four of us went for lunch. We loved the delicious food-we had the chicken and veg thali’s. The service was top notch. We also really enjoyed the jazz. I took my sisters as I had been numerous times and it didn’t disappoint.

Overall, meat thali needs more flavour in the curries. Especially the buffalo, which was quite bland and watery.
