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.
usual great welcome when arriving, with drinks at the bar. A couple of popadoms whilst awaiting our mains. Fabulous chicken shashlik dinner for 2 with vegetables and breads. Another great time. Simply the best Indian around!
All staff very friendly. Nice buzzing atmosphere. Lovely food - very tasty hot. Not waiting to long for food, but not rushing either. Great for families, groups or dates. Wine good too.
As usual, we were welcomed at the bar for a couple of pre-dinner drinks. Then escorted to a table of our own choosing. Enjoyed a couple of poppadoms with chutneys before our fabulous main courses arrived. All very lovely. A perfect evening. Thanks!
Excellent food, great service, nice people and atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone. High level curry house. A pleasure to eat here and will definitely be returning soon.
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.
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
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.
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.....
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.
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.
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.
Went to No.7 Temple on a friend's recommendation. Food was truly sublime, great atmosphere and very pleasant (if ever so slightly slow) service. We highly recommend!
A very good flavoursome curry, nice atmosphere and attentive staff, can't quite believe the cost, £15 for a main dish, that's the most I've ever spent on a curry dish that wasn't at a michellin star place. Very nice meal but I'll stick with Tooting for the best curry for the money.
Great restaurant for quality food, ambience and value! Been there many times and the quality and consistency remains very good! Will be back there soon. If you haven't tried it - go for the Railway Lamb Thava and you won't be disappointed.
This time we had 2 guests who like Indian food but not necessarily their favourite. Well they were so impressed & enjoyed everything from poppadoms onwards. Everybody had a fantastic time and it really was a meal to remember!
We had chicken Madras (perfect amount of heat) and the gun powder (hotter than vindaloo) shrimp. Both were excellent!! Made the reservation 30 mins before arriving and there was no wait for a table once we arrived.
We've been going to No. 7 since the day it opened. We love the 'selective' menu and find the food always stunning. Unlike traditional Indian Restaurants, No. 7 has a very contemporary feel and buzz. Big Fans.
Great authentic Indian food lots of whole spices used in the cooking . Really yummy will definitely go back. Cocktails were good too! I thought the decor was great, smart but not too smart. A fun place to go with a good atmosphere.
Service was really poor and the food very average. Despite having booked, we were put at a tiny table out of the way in the corner, where no one could see us and therefore, no one bothered to serve us. When we asked to be moved to a vacant table near the window, we were ignored and the table was given to someone else, whilst we stood waiting. When we were finally reseated, again service was poor and a long wait ensued between visits from the waiting staff. The food itself was satisfactory, but for ambience and attentive, friendly staff, this is not the restaurant to visit.
Great atmosphere, service and food. This restaurant consistently provides an enjoyable dining experience. I've taken several different friends here and we've always enjoyed our evening and they've wanted to return there again and again
Absolutely wonderful. The staff were lovely, food was fantastic, excellent service, and delicious cocktails! Thank you for making the evening extra special for my partner's birthday. Spot on - there's nothing I would change.
Great food and atmosphere and good service. Tip to the owner - kick your cleaners to do a better job in the toilets. They could be cleaner and you don't want customers thinking if the same cleaners clean the kitchen...
Best curry I have had in a long time, nice to be different to your standard curry house. Service was great and I would definitely recommend, I look forward to going back soon!
First time at this lovely restaurant. The service is was slick and the food delicious. We look forward to coming back and we have told all our friends about our wonderful meal.
Very good service, and very tasty food. Would recommend it to anyone you enjoys proper Indian cuisine, and not the dumbed down sweet curries that are often served in many Indian restaurants.
Food was excellent, service was good too. My only concern is that a service charge is put on the bill, when you pay by card you're then invited to leave a tip. I don't think this is right
Great evening great food great service & great company. Couldn't recommend this place enough. You really must give it a try. This is definitely the best Indian restaurant in the area.
Great food and atmosphere. Particularly enjoyed the Goan fish curry and the panir. Good to have the option of the traditional lassi drink too. West End style Indian restaurant in Weybridge.
Settings, food and service were excellent. One of the best curries I have ever had in an elegant restaurant. The only fault I thought was the ladies toilets. Those were rather dirty. Would definitely go back though!!!!
Usual pleasant atmosphere. Very very good service and exceptional food! This has become our regular Indian restaurant of use because the food and service are the best in the area!
Haven't been for over a month due to other commitments but so glad we're back. Had a great time as usual. Friendly staff, great food and a pleasant atmosphere. Terrific!
Great food: Fresh, not greasy, nice taste worth the extra money Good Service: Polite staff, not in your face like some restaurants. Nice Atmosphere as soon as walk in
Outstanding! Great food and service! Had a meal with my brother and his fiancée and we Will be returning again soon! Nice to see a selection of different/unusual dishes.
Very nice restaurant, not the normal curry house feeling but very spacious and well appointed room Good well cooked tasty food. Catered for vegetarians and changed the hotness of the curry to our liking
Tremendous food and service. The waiting staff were very attentive and offered polite advice on ordering. Really impressed, I will be going back. Reassuringly expensive, without being over priced. All round... quality dining experience!
The choice and quality of the food is 5* - excellent. Service is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is lively so if you are looking for a quiet dining experience, this isn't for you!
Great welcome, atmosphere and food, as always. Staff and management working really hard and it is paying off as there were lots of happy customers on our visit.
Amazing food & atmosphere! Definitely will be returning. Fast service, great drinks & very friendly staff. Sophisticated Indian cuisine, beautiful flavours you can really taste throughout the meal.
A welcoming pre-dinner drink at the bar first. Then lovely food as usual. All with very polite & pleasant service. A calm & relaxing atmosphere. All very nice.
Quite the most superb Indian restaurant in a very large area, the decor, the ambiance, and the staff deliver exceptional and delicious food. Always an evening to remember.
Calm & quiet atmosphere which builds nicely as the evening progresses and the restaurant get fuller and busier. Very good service and very good food. As always!
A lovely Indian meal, good flavours and nicely presented. The Railway Lamb is to be recommended. The décor is also very stylish, adding to the overall experience.
