Really good food, especially the Paneer and the seafood curry.
Service was at times a little surly, although not by all of the of the hospitality staff. We enjoyed the experience.

Hoping for a different kind of Indian meal with accent on flavours and fine cuisine.
What we was served was standard Indian fare in quantity and taste.

Truly excellent food but slightly chilly with all the windows open. Quite understand that the staff have only recently stopped using masks so ventilation is important but this will become an increasing issue as the winter starts in earnest.
Helpful staff but very small portions of chutney

Very nice 3course lunch we had with excellent service.

Only thing was that the air con was on and we got quite cold there.

Other than that it was all good.

I’ve been to Sindhu’s several times before but this has been the worse experience I’ve had with their service. There was very poor service and some urgency on us being rushed out. No attention or care given to our table. The food was rushed out and we had a 1 course meal in 40min. The waiters seemed keen and in a rush to get us out. Extremely disappointed and won’t be going back.

The Food was great and the service was very good. The only criticism was the meals came out very quickly one course after the other we would have preferred a bit of a gap between the Starters and Main Courses

The reviews I read, and the photos of the food, led me to expect a top class Indian meal in beautiful surroundings, but I felt that Sindhu fell short in a number of areas. The room was crowded and very noisy. The starters (chicken and prawn) were excellent if perhaps a bit large. The lamb curry was very disappointing, comprising chewy meat and a salty sauce. The naan was good, the dhal was a bit watery and the popadoms were poor. Coffee was fine. Service was pretty good. Sindhu was no better than the average high street Indian in my opinion.

Very disappointed. Felt rushed when we arrived. Popadums dry and tasteless with not very interest dips. Waiters not really interested in recommending dishes to suit our preferred flavours. It would have been good to try taster menu but it was too expensive even though it was my 70 th Birthday treat. There was nothing subtle in the lamb curry - it was hot and sour when we asked for less heat and more spicy flavour. The meat was lovely and plenty of it. The rice was good. Bread basket was good but too much. Peshwari was nice. Even the cake they bought with a candle was dry. Our local takeaway serves better food. I would recommend descriptions of the dishes on the menu which is quite limited. This would have helped to choose something more subtle which is what I thought Indian food is all about.

My wife and I chose the tasting menu and the food was sublime, richly spiced but without fiery heat. Each dish has several components which complement each other perfectly and are presented beautifully.

The best Indian food we've ever eaten. We've been to Sindhu a few times before but still every time we go we're blown away by the flavours of the dishes that they serve. We went for my wife's birthday this time. The service was great and they gave my wife a little birthday treat at the end to celebrate which was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend.

Food was exceptional. Wonderful flavours. Dahl a little salty for my taste. Dessert portion size was disappointing (tiny scoop of kulfi). Service has deteriorated since last time, plates passed across the table to guests and the petit fours arrived after the coffee.
