Did i see another Indian restaurant in Lewes has sprung up....right opposite the police station ?
I only caught a fleeting glimpse as i drove past the other day.

(East). Heard the Brighton Due South is going to open a branch in Lewes, anyone know where?

With any luck the new indian will be a decent place which in turn will give a hefty kick up the kyber to the other curry houses and the tripe they serve up regularly.

Two weeks ago I would have agreed with you. Shanaz and Dil Raja are crap, but I got a takeaway from Lewes Spice at the weekend. The last time I did so (abour 6 months ago) it was as crap as the rest of them, but this time it was really good, so we ordered another one today and itwas just as good. Hurrah!

Is Lewes spice down by the railway station near the Landsdown pub ? It used to be fantastic when it was the Light of Bengal.....they used to do the best chicken dhansak in the world.
I'll give it another go. Can you eat in as well as take away ?

Lewes spice is a bit variable - sometimes excellent other times poor. They must have 2 chefs.
Yes you cane eat in.

They had a launch party last week - really loud live music bellowing down St John Street until 11pm. You think they would have warned the residents/invited for free curry, but they didn't.

My first message on this forum after 6 months of lurking and it's to do with Indian restaurants. Still, they're important, aren't they? So my question is: is it true that two (count 'em) new Indiant restaurants are popping up in Lewes: this new one opposite police station and another in what used to be Eastgate House?

Thanks for kind welcome, Smiler. Totally agree about the 4 million Italian restauarants. Be nice ot have similar glut of a different cuisine. And talking of restaurants (I know it seems to be my main topic of conversation but it's not, honest), has anyone else noticed the elderly nature of some of the places listed in the restauarant guide on this very website? It's like stepping back into 1997: Thackerays, anyone? Leonies? Ransomes? Ah, memories...

I totally agree with you Currylova....there's just something about shanaz that's a bit special.
Picked up a menu from the new place on saturday evening and it was packed out inside

Look out the window in the toilets to see whats "SPECIAL" about the shanaz.

went to the spice merchant and and had a takeaway it was awful, so i thought i would go there with my girlfriend and eat in and treat her out but we were the only people to be sitting there and no one else, then for a change we went and had dinner at Chaula's and the food there was full of flavour and the aroma that hits you when you walk through the door is just unexplainable, when we got a place in Chaula's we were greeted by excellent waiting staff. the Indian sweets were just to die for. Personally i would choose Chaula's over spice merchant anyday
