Square Meal Review of Indian Summer ?

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.

    The Hedonist :: Indian Summer – Review

    The restaurant has been a mainstay of the Brighton dining scene for 12 years now. Situated in East St, a favourite location for shopping and dining, that borders the Lanes and snakes down to the sea, the interior is an attractive blend of wood, dark browns, chandeliers and evocative huge black and white photographic portraits. As we checked out the menu La Hedonista was drinking a Kingfisher Beer but I threw caution to the wind and opted for a glass of Sula Indian wine (£5.95 for 250 ml). It was a pretty fierce Sauvignon that did at least stand up to the spice flavours that were to come...
