“Great food and service”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

Got a takeaway from these guys, very helpful friendly staff. They gave us some popadom to eat while we waited for our order.

The garlic chilli lamb was very very good and my beef madras was also good.
Plenty of real flavour and spice in both dishes, didn't taste like they came from the same base gravy as most cheap places do!!

Defo worth a meal

“Birthday Meal”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

We were staying at the Granary Barn across the road in Burgate Manor Farm, and had booked a table at the Surma Valley for the Saturday evening.

The food was delicious and varied with a few different choices from the usual Indian restaurant menu.

The only thing I would say is that our table was set up in the bar area, so we weren't part of the main restaurant. However, this may have been because we were a large group.

“Excellent food in a unique environment”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

We recently visited the Surma valley on recommendation and were not disappointed. Its an old thanched property which has been tastefully refurbished, it has a very nice ambiance and irritating music - just a really nice buzz of people enjouying themselves. We chose to visit on a Saturday evening, and booked, which was a good job as they were packed out. Popadums and pickles and drinks arrived very quickly - but from then on the service was quite slow - even taking the order. But having said that they were incredibly busy on the take away side as well. I choose my favorite, a biriyani which was delighful having pomegranate seeds in the mix which gave an extra dimension. Excellent food - we will certainly go back with friends

Visited this restaurant on several occasions and have always been very happy with the quality of the food, great selection, very good service, and not overly expensive, would highly recommend this place.
