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.
On the 29th of June and 20th of July it is chef season night at Sindhu Restaurant, which features a special menu for dinner. The price is £65 per person and £120 per person incl. the wine pairing. Special menu to follow.
This was my second visit to Sindhu. As before the food was excellent and the service top class. The atmosphere was lively and fun, we all had a great time.
Food is always great. Service friendly and efficient .wine list extensive . The range of food on the menu is so different to normal Indian restaurants and is much nearer what you get in India
Delicious Indian cuisine, service also excellent. Had a la carte this time although have had the taster menu too. Neither disappoint! Price is on the higher end but worth it.
The experience as always was amazing. Food excellent, service excellent. I will be returning no doubt at the earliest opportunity. I would recommend without hesitation.
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.
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.
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.
