Indian Restaurants in Bristol
1. The Olive Tree, Queensberry Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Bath Russell St - BA1
“Excellent in all respects” – nothing but upbeat reports this year on Chris Cleghorn’s well-known and much accoladed basement dining room: the only Bath restaurant with a Michelin star and with a long history as a foodie Mecca. The dining focus here is on the six-course and nine-course tasting menus, but if you just want to pay a visit they do serve breakfast and a simpler lunch. Nothing but praise too this year for its basement quarters, which fans say are “perfect for a special celebration”.
2. The Mint Room Indian restaurant in Bristol 12-16 Clifton Rd - BS8
For a “memorable special-occasion meal”, this “sophisticated” Clifton operation (with a branch in Bath) is just the job, offering “top-end Indian cooking that is pricey, but well worth the money for the flavour and spicing”.
3. The Thali Café Indian restaurant in Bristol 12 York Rd - BS6
2018 Review: The original branch of this “authentic Indian street food” chain remains of note for its “quirky”, “laid-back atmosphere” and “very reasonable prices”, and is “particularly good for veggies” and teetotallers. Stop Press – their first non-Brizzle outpost landed on George Street, Oxford, in July 2017.
4. Pipal Tree Indian restaurant in Bristol 28 Chelsea Road - BS5
Kirpal Singh & his wife Kulwinder Kaur’s four-year-old north Indian fusion venture takes a novel approach to its menu, indicating which dishes are traditional to the Punjab, and which have been developed by expat Punjabi cooks using local ingredients – hence, for instance, mussels cooked in red wine and chilli. Named after the tree beneath which Buddha found enlightenment, it now has a sibling, Pipal Leaf in Redfield.
