About Nutmeg Indian Restaurant
The Indian restaurants of Bristol are as good as any found anywhere in the country, and while the city might not boast a concentrated area to compete with Manchester’s Curry Mile, Birmingham’s Balti Triangle or London’s Brick Lane, there is a restaurant with a suitably local approach to curry in the city. Nutmeg Indian Restaurant set themselves apart by attempting to source all of their ingredients from within 3 miles of their location on The Mall in Clifton, right by the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Their menu is authentically Indian – taking inspiration from all 29 states of the great nation – and that means curries, tandoori fresh meats and fresh sundries that even more labeled with the region from which the dish originates.

India is a huge country, but at heart, it is more a patchwork of regions than one cohesive nation. What else would one expect from a land of over a billion people, which spreads from the heights of the Himalayas to the tip of the peninsula in the Indian Ocean, from the Thar desert on the border with Pakistan in the West to the rolling, tea tree covered hills of Darjeeling and Assam? Nutmeg Indian Restaurant, Bristol’s newest Indian restaurant tries to bring all 29 states into play through their “Menu 29”, which brings flavours from up and down the country to The Mall in Clifton.
If you’re heading to Nutmeg Indian Restaurant, prepare for a tour de force. From the north come Punjabi samosas and seekh kebabs, Delhi style tandoori tikka and butter chicken and Amritsari cod; from the South there are Goan pork chops, Keralan salmon tikka and the Tamil Nadu classic of Beef madras. From up the coast in the East, one can try Telugu lamb shank and Sharabi Jhinga, Odisha state style king prawns with fresh mango and chillies and from the borderlands with Bangladesh and Myanmar, there are West Bengal grilled seabass and Nagaland diced pork curry with the infamous Naga chillies. If you head to The Mall in Clifton, you’re in for an Indian treat: book ahead for a Bristol curry house that really stands out from the norm.
First time eating at Nutmeg, staff were excellent, food was excellent, I always have a Biryani when I go for an Indian, I tried it here, delicious.
Absolutely love this place. We visited the first week they were open and were the only diners in the restaurant so had the full attention of the owner and team. Tonight they were full and the attention to detail with the service was the same - the flavours are fresh and balanced, great choice within the menu, fabulous cocktails. A first rate addition to the Clifton restaurant scene.
The food was excellent as was the service. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, The menu was a great selection with plenty to choose from without being too many items. Absolutely delicious.
Best Indian restaurant in Bristol! Amazing flavours, authentic and creative dishes, not your run-of-the-mill red curries that all have basically the same sauce. Fantastic crispy naan breads. Good portions. Great service. Can't fault it.
Hi liked the look of the restaurant, it was cool and funky and the staff were pleasant and attentive. (the bathrooms need an upgrade) The menu was authentic Indian, with no concession to old style Indian restaurants. The food came from all over India and the range of food included Lamb, Seafood, Chicken and Beef with a smaller range of veg dishes. As for the taste it was very very close to the food you would eat in India or at some London places. Would go again
A wonderful indian dining experience, with attentive service, good value Malbec wine and truly delicious dishes. There were 6 of us, each having a different main dish, and all were excellent. We were not disappointed and nor will you be.
We were the first customers in and had a very friendly welcome, the food was great, I know it's early days but this could be the best Indian food in Bristol. Roger T and family
Fantastic food, excellent service. Would highly recommend. We were a party of 8 visiting on a very busy Saturday night. The atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed our time at the great new restaurant.
Amazing food, amazing atmosphere and they also had New Years eve cocktails making our night start off just right! I definitely recommend a visit here and the fish dishes were so tasty!
The food was lovely and the staff were really friendly. Our waiter was particularly welcoming and we didn't wait long for food to arrive. We all enjoyed our visit.
Having just spent a holiday in India, this restaurant is the real deal. A very good range of dishes from all over India. The chef is from Delhi.
Great food - very interesting wide range of dishes perfectly executed . The staff were all very professional and made everything work , Will be returning !
Great location. Food and customer service was lovely. In terms of the service, the food came pretty quickly between each course. Very good experience overall
Lovely food with a good choice of dishes on the menu. Good atmosphere too. Nice touch with complimentary mini poppadoms and chutneys whilst you make your choices. Friendly, helpful staff.
The staff were friendly and welcoming but the service was very slow. One hour between starter and main course. There was one stage when not one table downstairs had food on it! The quality of the food was very good but it just took too long to get it.
Great food & service & love the decor of the restaurant. Small issue as I was given a Chicken dish & told it was the vegetarian one - just teething problems I guess.
The food was fantastic, but the service was a litle haphazard. I'm sure this was purely because its a new restaurant though, and will bno doubt improve with time. We will be back!
Excellent food, brilliant service, nice overall atmosphere in the middle of Clifton Village in Bristol. A different type of Indian restaurant, not your regular curry house.
The first time we have eaten there. A refreshing change with good food from not your standard Indian menu. Attentive staff, colourful surroundings and good food.
