Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you’re headed to Brighton for the weekend this is a must try. We had dinner at Indian Summer and from the minute we walked it, it’s a stand out restaurant. Really cool and chic decor, very nice vibe and the staff are super knowledgeable...and helpful. The thali and fish are just incredible, but in all honesty everything we tasted was well flavoured and cooked really well. Mango crème brûlée with chai cookie is also absolutely amazing. Very good value for money, love that they have varying spice levels and they have great mild kids options. Will definitely recommend and visit again.More

We were looking for a Last minute late night Dining option after seeing a show at the Brighton centre. I have been meaning to come to this place for quite some time after hearing so much about it! Im so glad as this place is...Excellent. Service was Brilliant and they were very accommodating for such a last minute meal. Food was amazingly tasty and rich with flavours! The Decor, ambiance and Vibe of the place offers a lively but also very nicely chilled atmosphere! With Huge selection of drinks from the well stocked Bar as well this restaurant is a real treat! Hugely recommend the Thalis as you get a nice selection of wonderful dishes as a mixed plate! Definitely somewhere ill be coming back to very soon! Great for all diners as there are many Vegan / Vegetarian options as well! Fantastic Restaurant in the Heart of Brighton.More

Really nice location near the seafront in Brighton, right opposite the famous filming location „Quadrophenia“. A great menu for meat lovers or vegans. Friendly service and good prices! The Food was delicious - highly recommendable!

Underwhelming. Been before and it was very good the first time we went. This time did not feel the same and the food, staff and ambience were underwhelming.

A sunny day on the beach and my friends and I wanted something savoury! Indian Summer was a 2 minute walk from the Brighton pier and beach. We ordered the bhel puri(crunhy, fresh, tangy yet soothing), chicken tikka( made in a real tandoor) and the...pakoras/bhaji(crispy and delectable). These were instant hits amongst my friends. We then ordered the butter chicken and paneer butter masala plates which came with tandoor breads. The creaminess of these dishes is beyond good. A must try!!!More

To be perfectly honest I tend to find places near the seafront a little hit and miss. So, imagine my surprise when we were greeted at the door by a professional. The menu was explained in minute detail as they provide flavours unique to this...establishment, and I have to say the food was superb. Would highly recommend.More

Amazing spot for a meal out in the evening. The chutney we were given to start with was so fresh and delicious. All the cocktails on their menu have their own unique twist. Would recommend getting the Thali for mains.

Venturing into Indian Summer restaurant in Brighton is embarking on a culinary journey through the vibrant tastes of India. This was my 7th visit in, but ive had many takeaways too! I love the warm and inviting ambiance, the grand thali and butter chicken stand...out as star attractions, each delivering an explosion of authentic flavors.The grand thali offers a tantalizing array of dishes, showcasing the diversity of Indian cuisine in one grand feast. From aromatic curries to crisp papadums, every component is meticulously crafted to perfection, providing a symphony of tastes that will leave your palate thoroughly satisfied.As for the butter chicken, it's a dish that embodies comfort and indulgence. Tender pieces of chicken are bathed in a rich and creamy tomato sauce, infused with a harmonious blend of spices. Each bite is a revelation, transporting you to culinary bliss with its irresistible flavors.But it's not just about the food at Indian Summer – the attentive service and welcoming atmosphere add to the overall dining experience. Whether you're a seasoned aficionado of Indian cuisine or embarking on your first culinary adventure, Indian Summer promises an unforgettable journey through the flavors of India right in the heart of Brighton.More

I'm based in London, but whenever I find myself in Brighton, there's one spot that always calls to me for authentic Indian cuisine. I absolutely adore their thalis and the ambiance they've created with their decor. Plus, the location couldn't be better, just a stone's...throw from the beach. If you're visiting, I highly recommend trying their thalis to experience the finest flavors of Indian cuisine.More

We had booked a table for 5 for the Saturday of the Easter weekend. We arrived early and the staff were able to accommodate us. The service was attentive but not overbearing. All the staff were very friendly and the decor of the restaurant was...very attractive, authentic but modern. Our orders arrived very quickly and the waiting staff taked us through the dishes. The food was really tasty, the thalis allowed a taste of af ew dishes, all delicious. Highly recommended.More
