We have eaten at Indian Summer time and again over the years and have always thought it one of the best restaurants we have ever frequented. Whether you have the quick lunch menu or the a la carte evening menu the food is always first...More

On a very busy night in Brighton we chanced it and despite being busy the manager was very welcoming and found us a table. The service is very attentive and informative and the food is excellent. It is not your usual 'curry house' and offers...More

Had a truly excellent pre-concert early dinner here with my wife. Lovely food - a step up (or 5) from your average Indian curry house, great service - quick and attentive, but not intrusive. And good value too. I will be going back soon and...More

The menu is very different from your run of the mill Indian restaurants. The food was exceptional & very tasty. The service was second to none, very friendly & bubbly. Would definitely recommend & would like to try again.
