    Stag evening meal - 11 guests at Old India. Slightly lost with the TT App pointing the place as being on Baldwin Street. Restuarant Happy for us to change our time and catered for a couple other stag parties too. We ordered the Banquet meal which was £20pp and covered a wide range of food - A couple asian friends said it was good and similar to home cooked style which is a good sign. By the end we were stuffed and ready to move on for rest of the evening.

    Great inside the old stock exchange. No thrills chairs and tables, long wait for food but worth it.

    beautiful interior. was happy they were able to preserve alot of the original features to the building. service was friendly and efficient. chicken korma cooked very well however butter chicken somewhat tasted very similar. all dishes came out nice and warm however the hotplates that was suppose to keep the meal warm were not efficient and hence the food did not taste as good perhaps they should look into changing the hot plates. portions were good size.

    food great. atmosphere very cool as the restaurant is located in what used to be the stock exchange of bristol so basically you are having curry in an old bank. service is a little on the slow side.only big disappointment was that when we arrived they did not have a table booked under my name as they said they were no longer part of top table!!!! nevertheless they gave us their last table. lucky.

    Visited Old India in Bristol on a Monday night. Venue's decor needs some revamping. Food and service was adequate but not exciting. Wanted to see what the place was like, but would not hurry back. There was nothing wrong with service or food, there was just nothing special about it either.

    While the food was good and different in places to standard curry house cuisine, we did find the menu a bit limited. Overall nice place for a relaxed evening out.

    I chose the Old India restaurant in Bristol as the outside of the building looked enticing andunique. The food was amazing! But the service was lacking, we werent offered any chutneys and had to ask for them after ordering, no mention of starters or desserts and no hot towels were offered at the end. One waiter seemed to know what he was doing, but that didn't improve the service experience. However, as soon as we tasted the food we knew it was worth putting up with.

    Old India in Bristol is excellent. The food was great, similar choicesas an average Indian but a cut above the average in both taste and variety. Definitely recommended.

    Old India - Bristol. Not your average Indian, but delicious food. The crab masala was great. Kingfisher on draught too.

    As always, Old India delivered a great meal. We had a banquet for £20 a head and there was so much food! Good quality service and food.

    took the family to old india. it was just great for what we wanted. the food was very good - a cut above your usual indian restaurant. the service was swift. I was shocked, though, when the bill came to find that there was not only a charge for the four poppadoms that we shared but, also, a charge for the tray of chutneys that came with it. given that each one of us paid around £11.50 for our main courses I think it is a bit shabby trying to squeeze extra payments out for a tray of chutneys.

    Old India was a relatively quiet restaurant with superb food. It is the only Indian restaurant I've been to where the lamb melts in your mouth. The service was good, food excellent and I know that if I ever want an Indian meal in the cenre of Bristol, this is where I'll go!

    I visited Old India at Bristol on 30 March for dinner. I ordered chicken with hot chilli and it was great. The restaurant was clean and the service was good. Will visit there again!

    Old India is a grand venue with interesting decor. There were large groups during my visit so it's probably not fair to comment on service speed and they did bring the wrong order to my table which was quickly sorted. Food is ok but a little disappointing compared to recent reviews.

    Old india, Bristol. Wonderful building (Old Stock Exchange) in the heart of the old city. No heating in the downstairs room, had to ask to move to the upstairs restaurant. Lovely ambience and the food to match. Menu a little retricted but with the usual old favourites.

    Old India in Bristol was ready to delight but in my opinion failed to deliver. It was not your typical indian restaurant setting. With only a small walk in hall where we had to wait before being seated in the main room. With no bar, just literally standing before being called through. It made us think, great its full, that's a good sign but also at the same time called of a lack of professionalism with lack of seating or bar while waiting in the hall.

    Old India was a delightful Bengali restaurant in Bristol. The venue is very nice and the portion sizes were very good. Everyone in my party thought it was delicious and the staff were excellent too.
