About The Holy Pundit at The Hythe Imperial Hotel

The sister restaurant of the ever popular Coopers on the High Street, The Holy Pundit is an Indian fusion restaurant found on Princess Parade. Priding themselves on using only the freshest local produce and authentic Indian ingredients, The Holy Pundit serves up unique takes on time-tested Indian dishes. We recommend starting off your meal with the paneer pinwheel (paneer puff samosa with sweet potato chaat and coriander pesto) before moving on to a mouthwatering main like the hyderabadi red snapper, ghee roast baby goat, saagwala lamb rack and khumani kofta. To guarantee a table at this Hythe hotspot, booking ahead is recommended.

Courteous welcome by all staff and offered a number of tables at which to sit. Given time to settle down before being asked about drink requirement. No hurry to order given plenty of time to browse menus and to ask questions about the array of different dishes. All courses beautifully presented which complimented the taste and quality. Not the first time we have visited and will not be the last. All set off in a calm and ambient Restsurant.

Although the entrance is a little strange, walking through the basement and pst the entry to the gym as soon as you walk into the bar area it is completely worth it. The decor is bright, with the sofas and the wallpaper giving you lots to look at..........We were met by 2 members of staff who were extremely welcoming and informative throughout the whole evening, from the explaining of the Indian Shiraz to help with the choices on the menu. All courses were incredible.......personally I had the kebab to start and then the Goat Curry, both exceptional. The taster of Carrot & Ginger soup was amazing.........All in all a brilliant evening, if we ever visit the area again we'll definitely eat there again..
