Visited here tonight on bonfire night as took the opportunity to have a night away from our business. We were not disappointed. Highly attentive service, good menu and my chicken dhansak was just delicious. Would highly recommend, not expensive either.

Found the restaurant on Tripadvisor through Google and after seeing the ratings, thought I'd give it at try. Booked a table for us.

Right from the get go we were introduced to formal, polite and friendly staff. We were seated and offered poppodoms and beverages. They were very nice, especially the chutney's that accompanied them.

This restaurant has been appropriately rated, and is excellent for its location. Ignore the previous review, judging from his location, Manchester, which offer very modern and classy restaurants. This is a local, small town business which provides excellent food.

We enjoyed the night thoroughly, and if in the area would definitely go their again. The food was spiced appropriately and served with style!

I realise my rating is in the minority compared to other TA reviewers but I don't feel compared to the many other Indian restaurants I've visited it was anything special.

Having said that there was nothing bad about it and the staff were friendly - it was just average in my opinion.

We booked a table for my birthday, as we had heard good reviews about the place from the local pub, and boy were we in a for a treat. They had a Happy Birthday sign which lit up and was behind our table throughout the entire meal, which was nice.

The service provided was extremely good as well, staff were attentive and quick. We were first asked for Poppadoms, which was nicely served with a chutney tray as an accompaniment, 6 different chutneys to choose from including the traditional mint sauce, but also The Viceroy's on combination like red sauce and some kind of tasty yoghurt mayonnaise mild chutney. The food; there was a choice of normal traditional dishes, also a contemporary menu which had all these authentic dishes that were most likely created by The Viceroy as I have not seen them anywhere else. The dishes ranged from Hyderabadi Lamb Shank, Coconut Chicken Lasan, Nilgri Duck and Carribean Fish Delight (Tropical). These were the dishes our group had chosen as they were interesting and peaked our curiosity. Safe to say, they lived up to there names, and were absolutely gorgeous. After, we got given the desserts and coffee menu, although we were stuffed, there was just about enough room to have some of the ice creams and cakes the menu had to offer with a couple of special coffee's;Tia Maria and Baileys coffee (Very nice).

The night had been lovely, with other customers surrounding us, keeping a busy atmosphere. Would definitely visit again, Newhaven's best restaurant - easily.
