We recommend the karahi chicken, a Punjabi dish that features chicken stir-fried with garlic, onions, and tomatoes in an iron karahi, or the nalli gosht, slow-cooked lamb cooked in a smooth gravy.

Excellent food, full menu choice for the lunch time which was well recieved. Massive choice of dishes, went for the madras which was very good. Will be coming back.
excellent restaurant the food was such good taste from the starter to the pud, it was a delight to look at and a pleasure to eat , the staff were attentive but not in your face, lovely flower on the table a lot of thought has gone into this restaurant and it shows
Hot, fresh and delicious food served with a smile. Family full of curry lovers were impressed, would definitely recommend to anyone in the Bristol area!
We had a lovely lunch. Food was excellent everything we had was so freshly cooked tasted lovely, couldn't fault what we had. Waiters excellent service. The venue looked spotless. Would definately recommend people to try.
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.
Excellent, virtually faultless food, which is always the main thing. You do have to pay for it though as it's not the cheapest of eats but you don't mind when you feel like you've had a really good meal. Service was pretty good. Certainly started well at 6:30 on a Saturday evening when fairly quiet but seemed to be getting stretched by 8pm as we were looking to leave. However that's to be expected for that time of the week. Overall you should definitely give it a go, I doubt you'll be disappointed.
We had the lunch buffet which was rather like a tappas where you get a little bit of everything, The choice was good but it may not suit everyone, I would only have this if you are happy to try a little of everything and not choosy over your food. What we had was very nice and the dishes were well and truly empty. The staff were friendly and the restaurant very clean and inviting, and lovely and warm not like some restaurants that have air con blasting at you.
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.
4,500 MIles from Delhi is a really good restaurant, excellent food and the service is really good from very friendly staff; however on this occasion they appeared to be using an out of date drinks menu, as the price of the drinks on the menu, differed considerably from what was charged and when checking the following day, what appears on the website, Estrella for example was a £1 pint more than what was on the menu, almost the same with Thatchers Gold.
Very nice looking restaurant and decoration of the interior and tables. Food was tasty, I ordered a lamb rogan josh which was 2 chillis hot and my mouth was burning so I wouldn't go much hotter than this if you don't like really spicy food. The pricing was good and the amount of food was reasonable. The waters were really attentive and the food only took around 20 mins to arrive. Would go again but order water for the table!
Usually LOVE this restaurant but really not impressed this time. We were taken to a table right at the back, even though there were tables free at the front, where it was cold and soulless. Our wine order was forgotten and had to ask for it, the food came out super quick and made us feel like we were in a fast food restaurant, curry sauce came out cold and we generally felt unloved. As I said, normally this restaurant is great but it was definitely not up to scratch last night. Would go back and hope it was just a blip.
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!
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.
Food was lovely, restaurant was great. Only problem was we booked a table at ten and felt the whole experience was rushed, from being greeted, to orders being taken, to eating and paying. The restaurant didn't close until 11.30 but we felt under pressure to finish our meals and leave. This tainted what could have been a lovely meal.
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.
Very interesting range of dishes, that were well presented and tasted delicious. Rather like a 'Taster Menu', two vouchers shared between 4 people resulted in 4 well fed diners! Quiet and courteous service in elegant surroundings - happy to recommend this restaurant to discerning diners.
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.
The atmosphere is welcoming and staff very helpful, polite and respectful , ready to answer any questions you might have. The food was excellent :fresh and delicious, literally sizzling. We will come back for sure as the menu is generous and all sounds delicious.
Very good Indian restaurant.. big but nice atmosphere and good, attentive service. The food was excellent. Fresh crisp naan, well spiced curry dishes, and lovely rice flavoured with whole spices. More expensive than your regular Indian, c£40pp for popadums, starters, main rice and naan with a beer, but worth it
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.
My daughter and me had a lovely meal, staff were pleasant food was amazing would definitely visit again.my only issue was the food was comjng out a but quick but other than that it gets a big thumbs up ☺☺☺
All round great food. The service was good and there was an excellent selection of vegetarian options as well as a wide range of interesting meat dishes. Atmosphere was good and the drinks menu was comprehensive. Over all, would recommend.
Always excellent food and service. Our favourite indian restaurant. We have visited many times and the food is always hot, well prepared and tasty. The service is quick and efficient. The restaurant is well decorated and clean. Worth a visit!
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.
Excellent food, beautifully presented. Very clean restaurant with tables nicely laid out and fresh linen. Incredibly friendly staff who allowed us to enjoy a meal at a leisurely pace. This was my first visit but I will definitely return!
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.
Restaurant was very busy with a number of large parties in as you would expect close to Christmas. Service was pretty good given the number of diners, the atmosphere was good and the food was excellent as ever
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.
The Buffet states for 2 people.the starter had 5 items which each had to be cut in half to share,why not give each person a single portion.The curry was probably enough for 1 person,and the sweet at the end had to be shared between 2,you don't expect a single sweet when the meal is for 2 customers. I have eaten there before with the previous style of buffet,but this new one is a rear dissapointment
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.
Always a lovely meal- great staff, great atmosphere, always impressed. My favourite place to eat in Bristol by far. Genuinely deserves success every effort is made to accommodate and make every customer feel welcome. Love it!
Four-Course Indian Lunch for Two or Four at 4500 Miles to Delhi ---Very welcoming with excellent service. lovely flavours and very well presented. Just the right quantity for 4 ladies in their sixties out for lunch.
The lunchtime banquet was superb, with lots of tastes and variety. Faultless service and both the restaurant and toilets were spotless. Would recommend to anyone - as long as they are not on a strict diet.
we discovered this restaurant with a takeaway that blown us over so we had high expectations when we went there. Unfortunately the food was not as good as the takeaway, the lamb chops were dry and the main a bit bland. On a positive note they know who to make tasty naan breads and the service is very friendly and atmosphere very relaxed. I will go again to try adifferent meal.
The food is good, as is the service. It's not the cheapest place to eat in Bristol, but given its location it is understandable. The interior is very nice as it the atmosphere. Slightly disappointed that the Chicken Drumstick starter has disappeared.
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
My experience was very good but one of the party in the group ended up with the wrong dish from what he had ordered. The waited checked it but still gave him the same meal back claiming it to be correct.
The food was perfect very well cooked. The service was very friendly were never over shodowing to get your order. The Decor and music made a very nice sitting. Will be back again :)
Food and service very good, enjoyable meal. Had a banquet for two and the portion sizes were just right. Would definitely go again. Location very handy if going to the Colston Hall or Hippodrome.
We were a group of 16 people who went to the restaurant to celebrate a colleagues 30th birthday. The food was great food and the staff were really friendly. Well worth a visit.
As usual a first class meal full of spices and other tastes. The staff were most helpful in explaining the various dishes and left us feeling as we had eaten a wonderful feast.
Lovely restaurant, great service, quality food but bit pricey. Very close to Colston Hall so it's a great place to visit if you fancy a bit of spice before heading to the venue.
Really great meal , and excellent service . Nothing was too much trouble for the staff .They even came out with a cake when they found out we were celebrating a Birthday .
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.
