I have always enjoyed coming to Indian Essence, and always leave with a mouth still full of wonderful flavours. The menu is quite exciting, and I look forward to trying something different on each visit. I brought a couple of friends who had not been before, and they were very pleased to be there, and said they would certainly be back,

Excellent as always. Been there three times now, gets better all the time. A bit on the expensive side but the quality is worth it.

We had a really lovely meal and service. The food was excellent and we were not rushed to vacate our table even though we were the last customers in the restaurant. Thank you, we will return.

Food was fantastic but, it my be Indian a la cart rest. but you can still over order and stuff yourself full. However if you do order too much, they will happily bag it up to take home which we thought was great! A few little details surprised us - greasy finger marks on my wife's wine glass, and table flowers were passed their sell by date. However that became minor as we tasted the food. Highly recommended by us. We will go back!

Very good with good service. The waiters and staff were attentive to the special dietary needs of our two daughters. The food is excellent. Note: The rating system below I don't feel reflects necessarily what people may be looking for - specifically on the qualify/price and noise lines.

Really enjoyed the evening. Nice atmosphere. Food really lovely and very different from other standard Indian restaurants. Initially found it difficult to choose what to have. Chose th echicken and it was really good. Would definitely go back but not somewhere I would go to on a regular basis - more likely to go for a change. It's also more expensive than the normal Indian meal but still worth it.

Excellent in every respect. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that would like a good, top end, alternative to just having a High Street curry. This place is in a different class.

My starter was a little chewy. I had ordered squid rings so wouldn't have them again. The trout and my chocolate fondant desert were delicious. Very good service. Yes, I would return but would choose another starter.
