With more restaurants per head in Brighton than anywhere else is Britain, restaurants have to be very good and offer great value to survive. Indian Summer has been doing both for more than 10 years to my knowledge.
This is real Indian cooking – not the erstat stuff served up the vast majority of Bangladeshi owned restaurants that litter our high streets.
The two-course lunch fine dining menu at £14.95 has a choice of 4 starters including Nawabi Murgh, a succulent chicken dish, originating from the royal courts of Lucknow and Tandoori Zeera Swordfish, marinated in whole ground spices and toasted cumin seeds. Mains include slow cooked Lamb Kolhapuri, Indian Summer’s unique take on an original Mahastrian recipe with toasted peanut, red chillies and coconut, and Malayali Jhinga – a south Indian dish of tiger prawns cooked with coconut milk, ginger, curry leaves and tomatoes.
A snack menu from £2.50 to £4.50 has Farsi Puri –- crispy fried breads – and Papad and pickles – lentil roasted and fried papads with tamarind and assorted chutneys
There is also an extensive range of street food items prices between £5 and £8 including Chicken Masala Dosa – a golden rice and lentil pancake with a chicken filling.
I particularly like their selection of Thalis from Gujarat in western Indian with an opportunity to taste a variety of dishes, costing between about £10 and £12.
