“Atul Kochhar’s Marlow outpost is in the charming Compleat Angler hotel by the side of the Thames” – a marriage of traditional British setting and Indian cuisine that’s proving enduringly popular. At night the room is less characterful, “whereas in daylight, there is the fabulous view of the River Thames’s Marlow Weir”. “Service is top notch and very welcoming” and the cuisine “is an inventive fine-dining take on Indian cuisine, beautifully presented”“every element is spiced marvellously and cooked perfectly”. There are “interesting wine pairings too (I’d never previously heard of mango wine. I certainly wouldn’t have ordered it had it not been selected for us… it worked well!”)

“Incredibly original Indian cuisine served gracefully in a wonderful location” makes this well-commented-on Marlow destination one of the country’s top grand Indians outside the capital. “A beautiful dining room overlooking the Thames” and with a “fabulous view of Marlow Weir” (gorgeous in daytime, perhaps less impactful at night) is the venue for “an enormously enjoyable, fine-dining take on Indian cuisine that’s beautifully presented,: “with lovely spicing, but never being overwhelmed by too much heat”. It’s “one of those experiences where practically everything is spot on”.

“The beautiful setting by Marlow weir with fabulous views is a big bonus for some tables, and also for any outside pre- or post-meal drinks” at Atul Kocchar’s Thames-side hotel dining room, which is now in its eighth year of operation, and recently benefited from a “lovely redecoration”. “Every aspect displays great taste and attention to detail”“high standards are set by the service” and “Indian food is successfully elevated to a high level” with “stunning flavours and exceptional cooking”.

Atul Kochhar is celebrating his sixth year in this “fabulous riverside location”. As experiences go, it’s “as refined as curry gets”, with “wonderful” modern dishes (if in slightly “small portions”) and “beautiful views over the River Thames” from its traditional, leaded windows. “Hotel restaurants are never supposed to be this good in the UK, especially in the home counties!”

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"The quality of the food makes it difficult to go back to a regular Indian. The room overlooking the Thames should be wonderful but it lacks something."
