We went on a Monday evening before a gig as a small group of 5 so was expecting it to be fairly quiet which it was however there was nice lively atmosphere about the place. The best thing though is unquestionably the food. We all had different dishes and everything was exceptional great presentation, service and taste. I've eaten at countless Indian restaurants and this was without question the nicest curry I've ever had. If you've already heard plaudits about 4500 Miles then rest assured they are well deserved. Fully recommend.

We arrived half an hour before the booking time and they had no problem with accommodating us early. Very prompt service and polite, attentive staff. Most importantly, excellent food. I have never been disappointed by a visit to 4500 Miles From Delhi.

The staff were very friendly and explained all the dishes on offer in great detail to help decide what dish to try. The food was fantastic and I personally believe the best Indian restaurant in Bristol. The only reason I'm not giving full marks is because of a rude waitress at the end of the evening asking how much tip we are giving before processing our card payment. However apart from that incident I will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

Fantastic place, great atmosphere, superb view and the staff were very accomodating. A few of us asked for items that wern't on the menu and the staff offered to make it without even hesitating. Couldn't fault the food, it was delicious and came out really quickly. I would definitely recommend.

Very nice food, arrived quickly and was a good value for an Indian Restaurant - £52 for a large two course meal for two. Service was a little slow sometimes and sometimes the waiters struggled to understand us but everything was exactly as ordered and we had no problems at all. Will be coming back for the lunch time deal!

I have been many times as a visitor to Bristol. Always excellent service and quality of food. Nice atmosphere although next time I would ask for a table away from the bar and takeaway pick up point which detracts from the intimate restaurant feel. Highly recommended (cheese and chilli naan always a favourite of mine). I usually book a table as my visit here is the main meal of my stay.

While the food was ok it was expensive. The service was rushed and confused about who ordered what. When we checked the bill after there were items we hadn't ordered and on talking to the manager were refused a refund for those items. They did offer us some free drink (for 2 people) if we were to return for another meal but I'm not sure many of party of 21 I took there would want to go back. It's shame as it could have been so much better.

good quality food and wonderful ambiance food was served promptly by attentive staff would recommend to anyone as the quality shines through of particular note is the testimony from the high percentage of Indians that were eating when we were there

Very nice surroundings, polite staff, food very enjoyable and tasty. However- We had the lunch banquet but unfortunately the food got cold very quickly due to no hot plate provided and the terrible draught from the front door being constantly opened. Would use again and recommend but sit elsewhere.

originally booked as a table of 5, but as only 4 of us turned up our table was changed, leading to some terrible service; not sure if it was because they forgot that they had moved us or not. But when people arrived after us, get their food, pay and leave before we even had our main meal; of course it's going to be a bad service. On a plus side, the food was amazing and can't fault that at all.

The restaurant is situated in a great location and well laid out. Overall my experience was enjoyable and the food was very good. The naan breads were oily and the poppadoms very expensive. The onion sauce with the poppadoms was exceptional as was the rest of the food.

Service was good, towards the end it was a bit slow as we didn't get the bill after asking for about 10 minutes. But apart from that the would was superb, we had a nice seat by the window and could watch Bristol go by. Would recommend.

one of the best curries i've had ever! very tasty, and super spicy (karachi). I was hosting a party of 9 and everyone enjoyed, even if the heat of these curries is definitely on the spicy side, be warned!

I went here for my birthday meal after hearing good things about it. What a disappointment that was! Food was bland and overpriced. Not in the slightest bit authentic. Even the hottest dishes were lacking in Spice. When ordering poppadoms, they don't even do pickle trays. They just give you two little dips to go with them, no mixed pickle etc. I ordered the lamb shank for £13 which very tender, but tasted like tomato, massively lacking in flavour - you wouldn't think you were eating in an Indian restaurant! And to top it off I found a piece of plastic in there! Informed the waiter who went to the kitchen and came back to apologise and said it was a film they put over the food in order for it to be heated throughly... In other words, the food is microwaved. Not something I expect from an expensive restaurant. I was offered a free drink to compensate. I also found the waiters quite rude and once it came to paying the bill the lady asked for a tip!! The only good thing I can say about this restaurant is that the presentation is nice and so is the actual building. Other than that I definitely would not be returning and would not recommend. It seems like they are trying to be a more "fine dining" restaurant but are failing miserably.

Our first visit. We received a friendly welcome. Service was timely and courteous. Food tasty and hot although one of the mains was cold and was replaced straight away with a hot one with humble apologies. We will return at some time in the future.

Lovely food in a vibrant and busy restaurant on a Saturday night. All very tasty, slightly slow serving but then the place was full and we were one of a number of big groups. Food came quickly once we'd ordered, and was super tasty.

The restaurant has nice décor, polite staff and the lunch buffet offers a reasonable range of tasty options, including Chicken Tikka and Korma. If you like quality Indian food, then I think this is one of the best Indian restaurants in Bristol.

Good food , portion size needs attention . Starters was delicious especially lamb chops . Ordered biryani it was too much greasy and covered with coating of oil over which made rice taste so heavy . Overall I enjoyed the meal

Food was good and service was well attended but because we were a large group (18) some peoples dishes didn't turn up with everything else and they were waiting 5-10 mins to get it all out. Apart from that was nice restaurant, reasonable value and would go back again.

Food was ok, service was just about ok although we had to wait to get served despite making a reservation some weeks ago. It's a nice restaurant but I don't think the food is anywhere near as good as when it first opened, which is a shame.

This was not a very good experience, it was not very busy when we arrived, unfortunately we were allocated a table in a corner right next to where extra plates and glasses are stored. It was a very small table and we were refused re-allocation of another table. The meal was OK only for the Tandori chicken starter, but the rest of the meal was not good and when we have requested some water for our table, it arrived after the third request! All in all very disappointed as the meal for two persons was £52, this is expensive for an Indian meal, with the additional charges being added for side dishes accompanied the main dish typically at £10+ each. We did not have a desert and only one round of drinks, one of which is a soft drink. There was no one that checked if our meal was ok and only did when we were paying our bill, maybe expecting a tip! I certainly will not recommend irrespective of whether the restaurant is busy, they should ensure they are staffed sufficiently.
