Modern Indian in Brighton celebrates 15 years

image004Modern Gujerati-inspired pioneer Indian Summer in Brighton is celebrating its 15th anniversary in November with a month-long range of offers, events and competitions.

Diners can choose two courses for £15 on Mondays; a table will be chosen at random for a £15 for two courses voucher each night; there will be a free raffle; and an Indian take on British High Tea with savoury snacks will be served on the afternoon of Sunday November 2o.

British-born self-taught chef Minesh Agnihotri left behind a career as a prosthetics engineer to co-found the restaurant because he wanted to showcase his own Gujerati gastronomic heritage, as well to other cuisines across the sub-continent. He even banned staff from using the word “curry” because of its connotations of cheap fodder to soak up lager.

Indian Summer opened in 2001 as a 30-seater in a low-budget location. Now at its third, much bigger site in Brighton’s Lanes, it regularly serves 150 diners on a Saturday night, and has win praise from the Harden’s Survey for its “fabulous”, “subtly spiced” and “very different” cuisine.
