About No.7 Temple
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.
Amazing food and service outstanding. Mixed platter starter was superb and everything was so fresh and delicious. Slick service with attention to detail and no waiting. Highly recommend.
Once again the food and service was amazing. Only one small gripe, my Bloody Mary was dissapointing. The cocktails used to be great here but I noticed a different bar staff memeber from normal on the night we visited so maybe it was that.
Food was really good. Great service, the waiters where really nice and quick , very nice ambiance and clean. It was a lovely dinner. Definetly will be Back
A truly magical meal. Great service, superb ambience, very modern fresh delicious food. Smallish menu, but perfectly put together, nice unhurried meal with dear friends. Thank you
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.
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.
Great atmosphere and lovely decor, the food was good - nothing mind-blowing but the mains were very tasty. Starters were good but on the small side, the king prawn dish only had 2 prawns for £8. However, the service was haphazard. Waiting staff were friendly but white wine brought with no cooler, no spoons brought to serve the starters with, I dropped my fork in front of the waiter and wasn't offered another, and we were never offered dessert, coffee or another drink after our mains. Overall a nice place but could be improved.
While the food was very good, the service could have been better. We were seated by a very friendly and enthusiastic waiter but once seated were then served by someone else who was less than friendly and not very approachable for fun communication. The food however was very good and tasty. The prices are a little higher than the usual Indian restaurant but that would not stop us from going again.
Hugely disappointed with the restaurant in terms of taste, value for money and service. Prices were on par with London equivalents, but sadly the quality of the food and portions were not. We ordered the mixed grill platter which required consultation between three waiters before knowing what it consisted of. On arrival it was small in portion, not even two pieces of everything and very bland. The paneer in particular had absolutely no flavour. The tomato base for the railway lamb tava was overdone and even the simple tarka daal was under cooked. This taste may suit the palettes of their regular patrons, but this is not authentic Indian cooking. Unfortunately, No.7 Temple have a monopoly on the market given the lack of Indian restaurants in the area. Please don't use the price as a benchmark for upscale quality. Aside from the ambience, there are few redeeming features. Overall, a very poor experience and we have no intention of visiting again.
The food was fantastic! The waitress was lovely. The first expression when coming in and a man who showed us a table, did not even wait for us to sit down and give us menus.. The experience was not polite. The waiters cleaned tables next to us with a cleaning spray, which is nice that hygiene levels are great, but the he sprayed so much directly to the table that we were breathing this and it was very uncomfortable.
Visited the temple on Saturday evening. Restaurant was very busy, however, this did not affect the service and the food arrived hot & tasty. Would recommend the veggie Aloo Brinjal Tava and the Tarka dhal. The expresso martini was a good end to the meal ! Thanks, we will be back soon.
We went to this restaurant because of the excellent reviews. It was an early Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was empty and we had two rowdy kids in tow but the staff were very friendly and the food was exceptional. I would visit again when next in weybridge.
As usual this place is perfect restaurant for Indian food with a twist. For a change my wife had a traditional meal to compare with another restaurant and was delighted that her dish was noticeably better. The service and atmosphere were as good as always too.
This was my first visit, however it had been recommended and I really enjoyed it... The food was amazing and the service was excellent... I also liked the fact that you could have a relaxing cocktail at the bar before you sat down for a meal
Great food, great atmosphere! All food was really tasty - we all enjoyed the meal. The only complaint was that the main coursewas slow to be served - maybe 15 mins later than we expected! It was a Saturday night & they were busy - but should be able to cope. We will go again.
Great food, and pleasant ambience. Usual friendly service, apart from one frosty waiter who seemed to have been having a bad day - shame he couldn't force a smile even for appearances sake! Shame none of the draught beer was available either. Would definitely still go again, despite the grumpy individual and bottled beer situation.....
While the food is good, the service could definitely be improved. No-one greets you and chats to you when you arrive, or offers to take your coats. No-one asks during the meal whether the food is ok or whether anyone needs anything else. And no-one shakes your hand, or smiles at you, as you leave. A very impersonal experience, saved only by the quality of the food.
Lovely food and service but the music was rather loud which meant that given the complete lack of soft furnishings and the very high ceiling we middle aged folk found it very hard to hear one another. It's one of the reasons we often end up at the Golden Curry in Oatlands instead.
The staff are very friendly and informative, the food was great. The restaurant interior is very modern and we like that a lot. It's a great local restaurant. They often have live music on a Thursday, not tried that yet but we will do.
