About Sindhu Restaurant
This is not Indian eating as you know it. Sindhu Restaurant brings serious fine dining to Marlow at their elegant waterside venue at Compleat Angler, just on the Bisham side of Marlow Bridge. Sindhu is the brainchild of star chef Atul Kochhar, who seems to be able to balance time-tested traditional techniques with cutting-edge contemporary creation without breaking a sweat. Sindhu Restaurant is relaxed and fuss-free, but the meal you receive will be unforgettable. Sindhu are particularly renowned for their pristine desserts: exquisite compositions that look too good to disturb by eating (don’t worry, temptation will quickly break through that). The brilliant menu boasts much more than sweet treats, though, and everything from heartwarming stews to zingy accompaniments are just as memorable. Atul Kochhar’s Sindhu is a true Marlow treasure and certainly no undiscovered secret, so bookings are strongly recommended.

The food was excellent , and the staff were attentive , everything you could ask for. The friends we took were impressed and will be returning. This is one of our favourite restaurants, it never fails to deliver.
I visited this restaurant as part of our company conference dinner in 2015. I was impressed with the service, quality of food and atmosphere. That is why I decided to celebrate my wife's birthday yesterday with a birthday lunch. Again, excellent service, quality of food is astounding and we had a good view of the River Thames. The price may seem to be expensive but still good value for money, and the restaurant is always full. Sindhu caters for an exclusive clientele, so I would highly recommend it.
Fantastic service accompanied by equally good food. Great views over the river in a very relaxed atmosphere. The weekend lunch menu is superb and very good value.
Fabulous food in an amazing setting. Should be sampled soon. The intense flavours are achieved by a deft combination of herbs and spices and beautifully presented. Don't delay!
We had booked a table at Sindhu a number of months ago for a joint 50th birthday celebration having enjoyed the Sindhu restaurants on P&O cruise ships. Having read some of the reviews on here for the restaurant in Marlow, we were a bit apprehensive. However we needn't have worried as the visit lived up to all my expectations. We went for the tasting menu with accompanying wines, The chiefs complementary dish of Pumpkin soup was delicious with a very pleasant spicy kick. The flavor of the Aloo and Samosa Chaat was great. The Scallop with textures of Parsnip was amazing. My favorite course was the Stone Bass. Both the Chicken and Lamb were lovely (If I was being really picky, I think the Lamb may have been slightly overcooked, but it was still lovely). The trio of deserts were delicious, I particularly enjoyed the cheesecake. Each course was accompanied with a different wine, which was introduced and described by the waiter, and each wine complemented the food very well. The service was great, from arrival to departure, nothing was too much trouble. One of party does not like fish, so they replaced they fish course with a very nice Chicken Tikka dish. The speed of service was perfect, It's not cheap, but I wasn't expecting it to be and it was for a special celebration. Overall a great evening, with great food and service. Need to start saving for a return visit.
We have the 7 course meal with wines, bit expensive, but as it was a special treat, well worth it. Staff were very good, food was amazing and the wines were excellent matches. Only issues we had was with the Complete Angler hotel, they had an event on and there was loud music on (this was a Sunday night) till gone midnight. If we had known this was the case, we would have been prepared for it, but after going back to the room around 10/10:30 having unexpected loud music killed the mood of the day. Reception said it would finish at 11:30, we called again when it was still going after that and was told it would be on till 12. No compensation (not to sure what that would have been but something would have been nice), defiantly check if you are in the 'danger zone' for loud party music before checking in. Moaning aside, we will defiantly be going back to Sindhu - can't fault them, but maybe not staying in the hotel.
Overall the experience was good. Just a few things let it down. The hotel and setting was beautifull, couldn't ask for more. But the table where we was seated made my girlfriend feel like she was in the way. Waiters were having to squeeze past, one did actually did bump into her, but appoligised , and they did offer to move us but we didn't want to make a scene. I had the lamb shank , though it's was beautifully tender and falling off the bone , it was served in a gravy , and with nothing else, I had some of my girlfriends rice , but it just didn't go, I did aske 2 waiters if anything else came with it but both said that I had the complete dish . Same I could-say for the mixed starter , it was nice , but it just was lacking, considering the quality the restaurant, and that it waswas aclaimed by atul kochhar I was actually really dissapointed, but the night overall was a success I was just left feeling dissapointed.
Great venue with a warm welcome. As this was my first visit I opted for the set lunch menu which was was full of flavour and plentiful (in fact I needed help finishing the desert). Added a couple of beers and a nan as any curry meal needs that but still dined for under £80 for 2 people so great value. My ONLY negative is £8 for a bottle of cobra......I wouldn't have minded paying that price for draught beer but a 300% mark-up for open in a bottle is a lot to swallow. Will definitely return for either taster or a la carte menu.
A lovely restaurant. A beautiful room with a beautiful view and a most enticing spicy smoky smell. The food was delicious, unusual, lovely to look at and very interesting. The staff were charming and attentive and professional. Altogether a delightful experience. I'm giving it 5 and not 6 because we went on a Saturday night and had to wait longer than average for our food and it was quite noisy so sometimes difficult to be heard by my fellow diners, without raising my voice. I'd certainly go again, but not on a Saturday evening.
Dined as a group of four and ordered the "chef's table" which we've ordered before. It was uncrowded, unhurried with perfect intervals between beautifully cooked and presented dishes with subtle and intriguing flavours. The wine list does not go overboard but would have liked to see a wider choice at lower price points. The desserts need more pizazz, more zing. A little ho hum.
Wonderful atmosphere and good service. Food is delicious especially the extra touches like the homemade sweets at the end. The only slight disappointment was the mains. The prawns in their shells were a bit chewy and the sauce a little bland. My partner asked for a hotter spicier chicken dish and it wasn't really all that hot. The naan breads were quite average too. We were expecting more I think because of the price which is why I only scored a 4. We did have a lovely evening overall and enjoyed the food overall.
Great setting, good service and delicious food. Tasting menu very good. Lamb a little salty but halibut was exquisite. Wine list of good variety and not too overpriced like many restaurants of this quality. Staff were just the right mix of attentive and caring without being too pushy or overly interrupting. Well worth trying and we will definitely go again.
A lovely contemporary restaurant. Beautiful comfortable surroundings. Food was amazing, a lovely twist on real Indian food. The flavours were fantastic, you can taste all the fresh herbs/spices and the food felt very 'light'. Not your typical Indian stodge. Very friendly staff. Would thoroughly recommend.
The Sindhu restaurant and staff, together with the food were as wonderful as ever. The only thing that let the evening down was the 20 min wait for our 6 drinks, (2 glasses champagne, 3 cocktails and a G&T), in a bar where there were only two tables of two. Compleat Angler, Completely unacceptable.
Excellent menu. The food was amazing. Spicy but not excessively hot. Somoeone in the kitchen knows their craft. Service was impeccable. The place has a nice buzzy atmosphere. This was our third visit which tells you how good we think it is.
excellent food once again and table d'hote menu good value. Only criticism is that the one glass of wine ordered and recommended by the waiter did not materialise. By the time we realised it was too late and indeed was not missed as the food was being enjoyed so much.
Excellent. Nothing to fault despite it being a busy Friday night service. Everything from the light as air popadoms at the start to the hand made chocolates at the end was delicious and prepared with skill, care and the finest ingredients.
Although the restaurant was not busy on our visit, there was a nice atmosphere. The service was attentive without being overbearing. We all had the tasting menu; with the exception of the lamb, which was OK, the food was exceptional.
Every single thing was perfect. Food was perfectly presented and tasted wonderful. Service was spot on and the price was very reasonable for the quality of the food and service. The views out of the windows is pretty good too.
Nice place, good (not excellent) food , at a premium price. We ordered the tasting menu, without accompanying wines (we ordered a bottle of wine separately). Sadly, a bit too much salt in several dishes and the chicken in the chicken kebab was dry. The desserts were delicious.
Good location, pleasant ambiance, food mainly good but some things disappointing. Had tasting menu which for us was one course too many and some items not clearly described - 2 dishes had tomato sauces which would have avoided if known! However the scallops, the stone-bass and the dessert were excellent. Would return but go a la carte
The ambiance, quality of food and service was all excellent. Staff were attentive but not over whelming & very pleasant/friendly.The restaurant had a relaxed buzz to it. Both my husband & I would highly recommend it.
Unfortunately due to the closing of the bridge the restaurant was nearly empty. The staff were attentive and the food was "nice"not as fresh as could be but this could be lack of covers. Please send the staff to Benaras for training.
Excellent setting, service, and food! Sindu provides a fine dining experience. We have eaten Sindu restaurant food on board P&O Cruise ships as well, and we have not left disappointed on any occasion.
Excellent service and delicious food. We had the 7 course taster menu, and as the courses went on, each course became my new favourite. Completely unlike any Indian food we have had before.
The experience was Absolutely top class in every way. I will certainly be back soon! A wonderful take on Indian Cuisine! I now feel compelled to sample Atuls other restaurants before too long
A really great evening. Service was efficient, yet friendly. Food was excellent. Prices were not excessive and portion sizes were large enough to satisfy our appetites. We shall definitely eat here again.
The setting was beautiful and the staff very attentive and helpful enjoyed the food but was not wowed by it not the best fusion style Indian i have had or the best food in Marlow.
There's a choice at lunchtime between and excellent value limited choice three course meal and a taster menu at a much higher price. We chose the three course and it was very very nice indeed.
excellent food service and location. shall be returning regularly. lunchtime set meal is great value. a new dimension of indian cuisine, against a backdrop of the river.c a h
We really enjoyed the excellent food with good quality ingredients expert;ly cooked and served in lovely surroundings. excellent value. Will definitely return and try the Sunday lunch next time!
What a wonderful setting for a restaurant. The food was lovely, not overly spiced but seasoned just enough to make it interesting! Attentive staff though a little surprising that the restaurant was pretty empty.
Superb food, the sharing starter was unvelivable. Great wine and great service top it all off. We will be returning again soon. Great venue for a special occasion
A great modern take on Indian food. Service a bit slow all round. They forgot drinks at nearby tables and took ages to bring menus etc but were so scharming we didn't mind.
Lovely venue over looking the Thames. We went for the festive lunch menu which was superb. Highly recommend you also try a Sindhu Martini. Will definitely return.
delicious and outstanding authentic Indian food. loved everything we had right from the starter till the desert. The chef name lives up to its expectations. Highly recommended.
Excellent. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and very attentive. The food was delightful and we enjoyed the taster menu experience very much. Would recommend it.
Wonderful experience, fantastic service, stunning food! We really enjoyed Sindhu. The chocolates with our coffee were beautiful and the food was exquisite! We highly recommend Sindhu.
Excellent food, service and fine cuisine, wonderful taster menu with accompanying wines, magnificent experience and a great settings looking out over the river Thames at Marlow.
First time visiting Sindhu and we had a really nice evening. Great food and service totally recommend the tasting menu, its pricey but well worth it.
Lovely location, excellent food and attentive service. We had the lunchtime menu which had a very good selection and was very good value for money.
My friends and I had an excellent time, the food was absolutely delicious and the staff were lovely. Will definitely be going back sometime soon
Had a wonderful tasting meal here with 3 friends. The food was delicious and the service was of a very high standard. Will definitely return!
I had to delay my reservation, and the restaurant was very accommodating. Food and service, excellent. I look forward to the experience again very soon.
Been before. Superb food and service in a lovely environment as always. The staff are very knowledgeable about the food and very attentive. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
should really be a 6, but i rarely offer top marks for anything, difficult to knock the food,ambience or service..! highly recommended to anyone who enjoys good food.
Delicious food, great service. Slightly cool restaurant temperature as sat by the window but not a huge issue. Would highly recommend the taster menu with the wines
Great service food very enjoyable different menu but very good Have beef there three times but still enjoyable Was a celebration of two birthdays with a cake
Very nice restaurant, friendly staff, delicious food and great views of the river. We enjoyed a lovely family lunch at Sindhu. We will be back. Thank you!
The food was really tasty and the service was excellent. All in all a really good experience and the added extras were a lovely touch.
