About The Old India

The Indian food on offer in the UK is pretty diverse, from the neighbourhood curry house to the countless tandoori joints, from the regionally-specific cuisines to the high-end restaurants that seek to represent the contemporary face of subcontinental cooking. The Old India in Bristol city centre is yet another angle on Indian cooking, as they provide an authentic insight into the techniques and styles of the Moguls, the ancient royals of India. They’re based in the Old Bristol Stock Exchange on St Nicholas Street, and they serve up a huge range of specials rarely seen in Bristol and beyond: we recommend starting with the Kashi chops, infused with pomegranate, before moving onto a biryani gosth, diced lamb cooked in rice and a vegetable sauce. Book yourself a table and head on down to experience the best in Mughal Indian cuisine at The Old India in Bristol city centre.

I'm so glad we chose Old India. The menu was most interesting, the food excellent and served well. I would certainly want to keep Old India as a must the next time we eat 'Indian' in Bristol and would have no hesitation in recommending Old India to others. Thank you again for a most enjoyable evening. Hugh Prideaux.

Nice food but very noisy, lots of groups in. Also they messed up our card payment which meant we paid twice and wil now need to ring for a refund. Service quite slow. Curries were really tasty though.
