About

If you can imagine a restaurant with the ambience of a buzzing city restaurant serving traditional Indian cuisine – you’ve got the formula for the super-stylish yet informal Pepper Dining in Uckfield. The moody lighting, dark wood furniture, banquette seating and gorgeous fresh flowers give the restaurant a chic, intimate feel. The authentic Indian menu boasts distinctive flavours, our favourites being the king prawn govi, Hydrabad lamb curry and the South Indian fish curry. The food is beautifully presented, and the service is faultless. Pepper Dining is a local East Sussex gem, perfect for dates and a meeting place for nights out with friends.

We visited Pepper during a short holiday break between Christmas and New Year. It was a quiet night, being a Wednesday, although there were a couple of larger groups celebrating birthdays and, although we had booked online, there were plenty of tables to choose from. The menu contained a few dishes we had not encountered before. We had small but beautifully cooked and presented seafood starters. For main course my partner chose the tandoori lamb chops which were plentiful and excellent. I had a king prawn dish which was equally delicious. There was a slight mix up with our order, which was taken on a digital device, which resulted in us getting a few dishes we hadn't requested! However, this was sorted out quickly, with apologies and a complimentary side dish. A very nice meal in a lovely restaurant.

Service can be a little slow here - we were kept standing for 5 minutes before being seated - but the wait is worth it. Very good Indian food; excellent choice including some imaginative chef's specials; and an especially good selection of delicious breads. Possibly the best naan I have eaten. Great for an after-cinema meal - park behind the restaurant for both venues.

Six of us arrived and were shown a nice quiet corner table and a drinks order was taken for three beers and three gin and tonics.. The waiter then returned and stated that they had no gin. We then ordered some wine as a replacement for the gins but were then told that none of the white wine was cold due to a chiller breakdown. We paid for the drinks that we had a left.

The service was good and the food was good. But it was nothing special. Portion size was okay but a little on the small size. Desserts were not fully defrosted. Service was efficient but not friendly.

It is great to see some really interesting food on the menu as well as traditional Indian cuisine. Dishes like Sally Chicken (chicken bhuna style with lime) and Ginger Kataa massala (tandori king prawns with ginger strands in a hint of massala sauce) . These dishes which are all on the Chefs special menu are superbly presented on large plates all contributing to an enjoyable dining experience. The service is great too with the lovely waiters really going that extra mile which makes for happy diners. Particularly like the large patterned cushions on the comfortable perimeter seats.

Valentine's night was very busy and the waiters and cooks seemed to struggle to cope, probably need a few more staff. The food was still good although marked a bit up in price from usual.

I have been to pepper dining a few times now and always the food is very good
The waiting time for the food is quite long , but I'm assuming that this is because
It's all cooked fresh which of course is no bad thing. It would be. Ice to be offered
Popadums when ordering the drinks . The decoration of the place is very tasteful
Definitely somewhere to go for a special evening

As always an excellent meal .Poppadoms and dips always go down well as we can never manage a starter.Great selection on the menu in fact too much choice! The Naan is always amazing. We always order the house wine which is very good and very reasonable. In fact a very pleasant dining experience which is not easy to find in Uckfield.

good set valentines menu three-course curry for £35 and the dessert that was not dug out of a freezer!

disabled access to the loos is compromised by a single step in the floor which existed when the restaurant was a hi-fi shop.

I've been visiting Pepper Dining since it opened and have never been disappointed, always offers great surroundings and great food at no extra cost than other Asian restaurants that look really tired compared to pepper dining. Always get a fantastic house red and I really recommend this great eating house in Uckfield .

Booked a table for 19:00 on a Sunday, restaurant was empty, obviously too early for other diners, but it was nice to have the place to ourselves. We have been to Pepper Dining quite a few times and as usual the food was excellent the waiters are very polite and the best thing is they do not keep coming round to ask if your enjoying your meal, I would highly reccomend this restaurant you wont find better in Uckfield.
