If you're on a budget and want a great meal, Symonds Indian will provide. The food here is great, it looks natural and isn't bright orange!

If you like to enjoy indian cuisine with great warmth, excellent hospitality and authentic taste , please visit this place . Menu and preparation of food is different from other restaurants. We orders paneer kolhapuri which was finger licking . Will visit again for butter chicken .

Had a craving for some spicy food. Did not disappoint. Chicken korma had just the right heat. Rice perfect. Naan yum.Lovely man who served me was very friendly. Had a chat to a family member visiting from India. What a lovely lady. Second time visited and will be back.

We regularly attend this restaurant as it is always consistent, great value and friendly staff. The wine list has a good price range and the food menu is extensive.
