Located on Prospect Road, Coppers is a stylish Indian fusion restaurant and wine bar, the perfect place for a romantic date or an evening spent wining and dining with friends in Hythe. Taking time-honoured recipes and giving them a modern twist, the menu at Coppers offers something to suit all tastes, from mouth watering meats to fresh seafood and plenty of vegetarian options. We recommend starting off with some shakarkand ki bhajia (sweet potato fritters, carom seeds, cilantro stems, ginger, garlic and garam masala) before moving on to the wild boar stew, garlic South Indian chilli curry or the khumani kofta (potato cheese dumpling stuffed with apricots simmered in rich and creamy sauce with flavours of cardamom).
Great food, great service, great ambience. We were well looked after & all the extra touches were a nice addition to the evening. We would highly recommend this restaurant - thank you
Great choice of beautifully flavoured dishes in a lovely environment. Service was very good and there was the added bonus of a pianist in the background.
Vibrant atmosphere. Staff friendly and food tasty & good value. Perfect for a romantic meal or a girly get together. Afternoon tea with bottomless prossecco was lovely too.
By far the best Indian food we've had. Excellent service, lovely surroundings. It was nice to see some different dishes on the menu from the usual things. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I've lived in the area for over 20 and never realised the restaurant was there. What a lovely find!!
Couldn't fault the food at Coppers - it was delicious and lovely to have some extra chefs tasters as well. Service was very good although some staff didn't have a lot of knowledge about ingredients in the dishes! The atmosphere was ok but could have been improved with more screening between tables. The ceiling is very high which makes acoustics strange and lighting was not great. However, we really enjoyed the meal.
We had a great meal at Coppers in Hythe. The curries were freshly cooked and very tasty. The nan breads were wonderful and the service was friendly. We would highly recommend a visit to anyone seeking something different from your run of the mill curry house.
We had a starter and main course, which were fine in themselves. We ordered popadoms to start with, but they were served late, after our main course had arrived. They appeared far from freshly prepared and were unappetising. I ordered a bottle of Cobra beer, displayed almost top of the drinks menu, but was told "we don't have any bottles, only draft". Our repeat drinks order was forgotten and had to be re-ordered after 15 minutes of waiting. The service, or lack of it, let down the overall experience. There were only two waiting staff to cater to the whole restaurant. Yes, the food is a little out of the ordinary and would, if accompanied by a good level of service, be worth the money charged. As it is, it was an overpriced and unsatisfactory experience. Next time, I'll go to a bog standard curry house where I know they'll be more attentive and I'll pay half the price.
When it took over an hour just to get our starters, we knew something was not right. The wait staff did their best, but obviously they were just overwhelmed and unable to cope with the situation. When we asked for an explanation were told that a member of the kitchen staff was unable to get in due to the effects of the storm. It is a shame that we were not given that information voluntarily as it would have really helped to ease the situation. This was a friends get-together meal for six, and I had come from the US specifically for it. Despite the concerns and lengthy waits between courses, we all had a great time, but this was due more to the camaraderie and liquids consumed than the food, which was mediocre at best.
I've tried all the Indian restaurants locally and this and the Holy Pundit (its sister restaurant) are by far the best. Try the garlic South Indian curry. It's a cut above your usual curry house but the prices are very reasonable and it's consistently great.
Wonderful venue with outstanding selection of top class tasteful dishes. Certainly one of my favourite restaurants! Will return as couldn’t decide which main course to have. I will just have to work my way through the menu!
