Lager-swilling lads on ‘battle of the hottest curry’ missions can jog on: this is a contemporary Indian with a very different agenda. Groups of friends and couples are its regular patrons, with dinner often involving a two- or three-course spread – complete with pre-starters and palate cleansers. If that sound a tad formal, chandeliers, glass screens and huge sepia photos of street-food vendors steer punters back to that contemporary vibe, and the cooking promises big flavours in abundance. Lamb with chilli and cinnamon is rich and tender, while tandoori chicken (marinated overnight) is satisfyingly moist and aromatic. Lunch offers street snacks and a clutch of thalis in addition to the main menu. Indian Summer has been around for over a decade and although it doesn’t garner as much attention as nearby Chilli Pickle, it’s quietly doing good things.
