beautiful restaurant in a lovely location.
Staff very attentive, we felt very well looked after
The food was delicious. The calamari was very dry but that was just a small thing. The rest was amazing.

We went for a lunchtime meal deal with friends and savoured every mouthful. The tasting menu was well thought out and excited the taste buds. The staff couldn't have been more helpful answering our questions about the food, they were obviously proud of their dishes and rightly so. All in all a really lovely experience.

The food was great. We had a 9.15pm reservation but felt that they wanted us to eat and be out quickly, so didn’t find it very relaxing. The staff were pleasant but feel a late table reservation shouldn’t be offered if you don’t really want any new diners.

Not as good as previously which was disappointing as we brought people that had never been before. They were very overbooked. Service wasn’t very attentive. Requested and then had to chase three times for poppadoms. Tried to get attention for more wine? Similar problem.

Really enjoyed the tasting menu, nicely paced and each dish had distinctive flavours.
We had a voucher from travelzoo which meant value for money was good.

The tasting menus (meat & fish) and the accompanying wine flights were excellent. The service was very good and we appreciated the explanation of each of the pairings. A very different Indian food experience!

Overall the food was of good quality and service was very good. I found the Gin that I had very pricey. I took a large Monkey 47 50ml with tonic and ended up paying £18.20 for that drink.

Been to Sindhu a few time which has always been good. Really disappointed with this though. Food was bland and not cooked well. The beef was particularly over cooked and the chicken tikka was average. Such a shame because I was really looking forward to this

The room was very welcoming and well designed. There was space for an open fire but it was unfortunately not lit.
We were given an amuse bouche which was very flavoursome. There is an al carte menu and a tasing menu. We opted for the al carte menu as I am vegetarian and the tasting menu had quite a lot of meat on it. Both the starters and the main courses were had plenty of flavour and the spices really came through. None of the dishes were too hot although I do like food with a kick to it. I had the vegetarian platter which was a very good size and had three different curries on it. The black dahl as one of the best things I have ever eaten.
The service was fantastic and the overall expereience was excellent. I will certainly be visting there again.
One nice touch would be to provide a vegetarian tasting menu.

The food was absolutely outstanding. Service was brilliant too. Servers are attentive and quick to respond to requests. Even though there was a wedding on in a different part of the place, there were no delays from the kitchen even.

Will be back to try the rest of the menu for sure.

Arrived and before even being seated we were reminded of the turn around time and when we must leave

The most HORRIFIC part was I found a ‘dental cavity’ or piece of stone in my paneer starter which is currently being investigated. The food was bland and not tasty at all

Food and service excellent. A big step up from other Indian restaurants but because of that the menu is smaller so don’t expect a huge choice. Quality over quantity!

Tables too close together for comfort and safety.
