Superb food, a real treat and good service.

Only 2 little things that I think could have been better. Firstly the room is large and sound echoes, with a full house, testament to its popularity the noise was overwhelming at times. Maybe some form of noise reduction could help?

Secondly, make sue you ask for tap water... still is £5 a bottle which I just think is too much.

Wonderful lunch at Sindhu, my family members are very fussy eaters and especially with Indian food they would rather eat at home. Each member of my family loved the balance of flavours, none of the spices were overpowering, the ambience was perfect and we thoroughly recommend the restaurant. It’s a must do !

The dall had obviously been sitting in the kitchen for a long time as it was both dry and clogged. The Biryani was underwhelming and lacked appropriate spicing. The deserts were frosted and inedible.
Generally the food was on the tasteless contour. Surprising, as I have always rated Atul to be one of the best, if not the best, Indian Chef in UK. Perhaps, having too many commitments, in his various business engagements, has a cost and the quality suffers. The delegated chefs in the restaurant are not Atul.

Went there on a Friday for the lunch. Service was good. My wife is Pescetarian and the choice was quite boring really. The cauliflower starter was boring and very average. A fish option rather than squid would have been good. The salmon main was just ok for this class of restaurant. Ice cream dessert was poor (chocolate and a something and ginger - go to Thames Lido to taste proper ice creams.
Was a Christmas present from my son as we are all keen on our food - sorry but left disappointed. I think Atul should send in a secret taster - he would realise how "un-special" this was - we should have popped up the road to Tom Kerridge at Coach.

I'm a big fan of Atul's food. Love his recipe books, thoroughly enjoyed his masterclass and love Sindhu's for that special meal when there is something worth spending money on. Love it

Waiters very unfriendly
Embarrassed as we took friends out on the Virgin experience
The food was the festive menu which was cold and disappointing
I was thinking it would be like the Sindhu we have always enjoyed on our P&O cruise as I did email before to ask for the non festive menu but no one bothered to respond!

Excellent from beginning to end. My wife prefers relatively lightly spiced food and I prefer spicy, yet somehow we both found all the food perfectly spiced and so tasty with every course of the tasting menu. We will return.

The starters were very good but the mains were very disappointing. We had the chicken curry and the seafood curry and the sauces were sugary sweet and lacked a balance of flavour.

this is fabulous Indian cuisine, elevated, refined, not street style, not your local curry establishment, therefore it is elevated prices too, but worth paying.

We have already submitted a Trip Advisor review effectively saying that for a Festive Lunch we had anticipated more exciting food. The food was nice but only nice, we had hoped it would be better. Service was very good, additional £5 for nans seems excessive and the coffee was diminutive considering almost £5 a cup. We would recommend the restaurant to others as it was not a bad experience but it did not inspire us to make a quick return visit.

Brought my parents for their birthdays and it was the first time at this restaurant for all of us. The service was amazing from start to finish. The food was cooked to perfection. The location was perfect and the ambiance was calm and relaxing even though there were many others in the same room.

Would recommend Sindhu to everyone and will return here soon.

We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing. It was absolutely fabulous and the waiter explained each course and the wine with great detail. They even bought my partner a small birthday cake with candle which was a lovely touch.

We absolutely loved our lunch, the quality of the food was amazing and the service was fantastic. I have given the food four stars, I would of given five stars if the Kulfi ice cream was home made and not bought in. It just doesn't have that authentic taste. Kulfi is my favourite desert so for me that was a disappointment. Other than that it was amazing and I will definitely be going back!! We had a lovely time

Lovely food, sometimes a little one dimensional but with some very nice elements. The lamb was delicious, as was the scallop and the pheasant. I liked the desert - not normally a desert person but iwas nice. Attentive service.

Only start missing because of a misleading email, ref “festive dining” but didn’t apply to the Anglers, even the waitress had to look for a bit to see why!

This is our third time to Sindhu. We first went two years ago and were really impressed with what a lovely atmosphere, what great service we received and how great the food was.

This time, I felt something wasn’t quite right. I missed white table cloths on the wooden tables. I thought the service was average. The food was still good but the whole package needs to be right for that venue and the overall cost.

Perhaps they’re a victim of their own success?

A little disappointing for us this time.

Beautiful indian food in a great location We went for the set Saturday lunch - 3 courses £25 - but we chose the lobster curry with a supplement and the wine is not inexpensive so our final bill for lunch was £120. Complimentary rice and a lentil side dish were a nice touch
