No.7 Temple takes its name from its street address in Weybridge, Surrey, but this modesty is unbecoming – the verdict is clear, this restaurant is a veritable temple to Indian gastronomy, with a superlative a la carte menu flanked by special wine-paired dinner events, prix fixe menus, and even Indian cookery classes. Great value one- or two-course set lunches bring many local workers through No.7 Temple’s doors, while a weekday early bird offer and the highly effervescent two-course Thursday set menu with free-flow prosecco again attract a flock of South Asian food fans tired of run-of-the-mill Indian cuisine. Signature dishes like the Raj-era railway lamb tawa or the fiery gunpowder chicken are just some of the dishes you can explore here. Find No.7 Temple, assuredly, at number 7 Temple Street, but be sure to book a highly sought-after table well in advance.
Open seven days a week for lunch from noon to 2:30pm and dinner from 6pm until 11:30pm, No.7 Temple’s kitchen never seems to sleep. Garnering praise left, right and centre for it’s seriously superlative approach to South Asian cuisine, No.7 seems to many diners – food critics and foodies alike – as the firecracker under the lounge pillows that the tired Greater London Indian restaurant scene has needed for a long while. Lucky for Weybridge and Surrey, then, that this advocate for determined Indian gastronomy is in their neck of the woods.
Simple, traditional poppadoms and a tray of chutneys and pickles are the usual beginning to an a la carte dining feast at No.7 Temple, with a range of starters like the tandoori platter and unusual dishes like the Bombay asparagus following through. There’s a short but punchy tandoori main course selection, with the shakahari shashlik sure to attract interest from Surrey’s aficionados of South Asian eating, while signature dishes like the Raj-era railway lamb tawa or the fiery gunpowder chicken are more stellar examples from the perfectly curated menu here for you to explore. Find No.7 Temple, assuredly, at number 7 Temple Street in Weybridge, but be sure to book a highly sought-after table well in advance.
Excellent food and a buzzing atmosphere on a Friday night. Can be a little slow at the bar but staff all very friendly and helpful.
Great food and service at Temple 7 on a Wednesday night which wasn't that busy but very enjoyable so thanks again for another great meal Thanks again
Delicious meal with excellent service - Great atmosphere and the staff are most welcoming and attentive throughout your visit :-) Would highly recommend this place!
As usual, we had a marvellous evening. Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Will be away for a while so will really miss the place!
Quality Indian restaurant, Attentive service and good food. Difference is you can see the skewer marks in the meat that has been in a tikka oven which is not always the case. Railway Lamb very tender with a nice heat not sour or sharp. £3.50 for a small diet coke is a little lumpy as is additional cost for the dips tray with the popadoms (what would you do without it and its not like you finish it, it just gets topped up and moved on). Overall a good modern Indian with better food ambience and service. We were £25 per head with no starter and only 2 beers.
The service wasn’t very good. The waiter wasn’t rude but he was not friendly or particularly informative. Just wanted to get our orders quickly and move to the next table. We thought the chutney tray was good and shared the garlic prawn and mushrooms which were vey good however it came with only two prawns. I had the lamb shank and thought it was delicious, while my wife had the rail car lamb and thought the meat was chewy and tasteless. I had a bite of it and thought the sauce was tasty however definitely not tender. Side of cauliflower was good but the menu description did not mention peppers, which my wife doesn’t like. The waiter then didn’t do himself any favors when he took away her wine glass when it still had a couple of sips. Just whisked it away and was gone before she could even object! I gave it a 4 only because the lamb shank was so good.
No. 7 is a superb up-market restaurant specialising in quality Indian cuisine. Very friendly greeting on arrival, quickly checked my booking and showed us to our table. (Also number 7). Attentive service from staff and helpful assistance given. The quality of food couldn't be faulted ... indeed, a member of our party commented it was the best he had ever tasted. We all felt the same. After our meal and some friendly chat we were served complimentary coffee and cakes. A very nice and welcome touch. The prices are a bit higher than the "norm" but it's well worth the extra. Will we return? Most certainly.
Hmm, not the usual standard of food we thought. Not having been for about 4 months it seems the portions are a little smaller and maybe the chef has changed as we thought our meals were a bit dry compared to what we’re used to. We both had a shashlik dish but even the paratha was wafer thin compared to the past. There were a few parties going on so that might have made a difference but we did feel we’d been forgotten about before ordering our main courses. Still, we’ll give another go having enjoyed around 30 visits in the past. We all have our of days!!
The food is always great at No. 7 Temple, but we had a few issues with the staff on this visit. The waiter struggled to understand us when we explained we didn't need drinks and were just waiting for a tonic water to go with the gin - which somebody was sorting. He bought us a glass of tonic water!!!! The restaurant apologised and said it would be removed from the bill .... it wasn't!!! When we came to pay the waitress handed my husband the credit card machine with the question on the screen of whether we wanted to add gratuities ... luckily my husband had spotted on the bill that this had already been included by the restaurant!!!! Could have got a double whammy .... not impressed!
Went on a very busy Saturday evening - there was a large party of 26 already in the restaurant as well as other customers. I was there with a friend who had not been to No 7 Temple before -it took an hour to get our food. Food excellent as ever when it finally came -staff apologetic and gave us a nightcap with our coffee but just FAR too long to wait. Kitchen staff obviously working flat out but unable to deal with the number of covers plus takeaways in a reasonable timeframe. Need to rethink their booking strategy - I am unlikely to go on a Saturday again.
