“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Been there only once, before they've permanently closed it for lunch.
I've never tasted Indian food before and I thought it was really good. The service was polite and there was just one more table occupied, making it a pleasant and peaceful meal (but it kinda explains why they'd reduced the opening hours).
I'd happily visit again if it was still opened for lunch.

“How Indian cuisine should taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Coming from the UK originally I'm a big lover of Indian food. I've lived on both islands in New Zealand and have always found a good curry house hard to come by for some reason. Indian Summer ticks all the boxes, great authentic Indian food, close proximity to the city centre and faultless service. Highly recommended.

“Great Indian food in Dunedin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

This is as good as you will for Indian food is in Dunedin. Located in Moray Place, just off the Octagon, it is readily accessible although parking is not always easy, particularly if there is an even at the Town Hall or Fortune Theatre nearby.

We started with a very tasty entrée plate to share and that gave us a good appreciation of the range of food available. Mains range between $16 and $20 and they contain generous servings. There are plenty of choices and we loved our meals. We ordered one each and shared them. We could not eat them all but took the remainder home.

The naan bread is the best ever. It is dry, not all smothered in butter or oil, and very tasty.

Service is great and the advice on menu options was appreciated. The recommendation for a Jaipur Indian beer turned out to be a gem.

The restaurant is in a cavernous space that must be difficult to heat, but it was pleasantly warm for us on a winter evening.

Highly recommended.

“Good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

Very good value for money - admittedly we weren't very hungry, but we shared three meals between four of us and still didn't quite finish. The curries were delicious and the garlic naan was great.
