Feedback (unedited!)

“Excellent event Priya. Great food, great company, made some new friends and had some great tasting experiences! Thank you for a super evening!”, Jeff Haynes, Brighton.

“Lovely evening at Polygon pop-up last night. Delightful venue and Priya’s Indian food tasty and delicately spiced. Enjoyed every mouthful and particularly appreciated the background she gave to each dish and her visits to every table to check all was OK.”, Sonia Marsh, Hove.

“I had friends who dined with you last night, who are particularly knowledgeable and well travelled with Indian food, and they loved it.  They say your lamb cutlets were ‘to die for’.”, Lel, Tabl Support Team.

“Moira and I went to the Supperclub on the 21st of June and were delighted with a superb 5 course meal and pleasant company. The food was a subcontinent away from the standard fare served up in your local Indian restaurant and as each course arrived, our host Priya explained the origins of the dish and other interesting information about the herbs and spices that were used. We are definitely looking forward to the next Supperclub.”, Richard Vahrman, Hove.

“Priya’s knowledge and passion for food from different regions of India guarantee an interesting menu. Every course is a delight, as Priya describes the history and background of each carefully chosen dish. And of course every dish has been lovingly and expertly created from the best fresh ingredients – Priya prepares every thing herself from scratch. You will have an evening of good conversation and gastronomic delight – I highly recommend it.” Sheila Brookes, Hove.

“The care and attention to detail that went into the food and ambience were outstanding. All the dishes were delicious. I particularly enjoyed the green mango, tamarind and mint cocktail that we were welcomed with and the rich and complex spice mix that accompanied the idli and coconut chutney. The fish biriani, pigeon pea and tomato dal and chunky cucumber salad together made an exquisite main course.”, Guest, Brighton.

“I had a superb time. The atmosphere of Priya’s massive, mysterious and unconventional Victorian house is magical. The welcome drink adds a sophisticated touch. By sharing the table with other people you’ll have made new friends by the end of the evening. The food is good and the quick blurb about it Priya gives wets your appetite. I wish I had more money to go more often but alas you pay for good things in life! Don’t miss the experience.”, Roberta Piazza, Brighton.

“Deccan Tiffin’s Maharani supper club was fantastic.  Excellent, gourmet food, a million miles from the usual British curry.  Probably the best meal we’ve had this year (including Michelin starred cuisine).”, Mark, Hove.

“This Goan feast was a performance of tastes, textures and colours, playing off each other, and making even the best Indian restaurants seem predictable. A series of small dishes, including deceptively elegant Goan beach and street foods, led up to the mains that showed off all the best features of Indian cooking.” Gordon, Lewes.

Great turnout for the “Goan” Maharani Supperclub on Saturday the 16th of May. The pork Vindaloo was popular and I had a very happy group of guests overall.  So satisfying to hear positive feedback, especially when you have been on your feet all day.  Makes it all worthwhile.

“This was an exceptional experience and we were privileged to be trying Indian dishes of the very highest pedigree”
