The newest addition to the Weybridge dining scene, No 7 Temple bills itself as ‘Indian Gastronomy.’ We decided to treat my father in law to his favourite cuisine for our last meal together.
Opened in late June, No 7 Temple has brought a new style of Indian to Weybridge – refined Indian food with contemporary surroundings.
They’ve done a superb job with the interior. The tones are a very current grey. The furniture and accents are smart and elegant.
It’s a large space and there’s plenty of room between tables.
The evening was very busy as locals acquaint themselves with the new restaurant on the scene.
Our visit started alongside casual diners and families, by the time we left was mostly stylish couples and groups of friends.
The menu features interesting sounding dishes like railway lamb tava and gunpowder chicken curry, along with the regular favourites.
Pricing is simple. There are two sections (specials & classics) and each curry has a choice of meat. Dishes in each section are the same charge, which varies from £9 for chicken to £13 for king prawns. There’s also a selection of vegetable curries.
We started with ‘papadums + pickles tray £2 per person.’
Quaintly, our main course arrived piping hot on a trolley. We had, clockwise from top left:
Goan fish curry delicately spiced seabass + shrimp cooked in a tangy tamarind and coconut infused sauce £12.00
Vindaloo king prawns £13.00
Bombay potatoes £4.00
Cucumber raita £3.50
Nirali Chicken cooked in a creamy buttery sauce, with a light spice kick £10.00
Chicken Jalfrezi £9.00
Along with Peshwari Naan £3.50 and Steamed Basmati rice £3.00.
Everything was delicious and fresh tasting.
There are some kinks. Noise needs to be dampened but they’re aware of this and have already ordered soft furnishings to drape along the rafters and windows. Service is still finding its feet. Most importantly the food is very good, they’ve certainly got that right.
I will reserve judgement on No 7 Temple until a second visit. I’m looking forward to afternoon tea, Indian style – something they will be starting in the autumn.
