Est. India Restaurant &
Reservation Policies

Welcome to Est. India’s restaurant policies – Our top priority is to provide you with excellent service during your dining experience. Everyone is welcome to dine with us. However, we request you to kindly read our policies carefully.

Dress Code

We recommend smart casual dress for dinner service and kindly request customers to avoid sportswear, shorts, flip flops and beachwear as these are not permitted in the restaurant.

Reservation Policy

To ensure a smooth dining experience and to avoid any potential disappointment, we kindly request that all restaurant reservations be made online. By doing so, you will have access to the latest availability and can secure a table that suits your preferences. While walk-ins are also welcome, please note that management reserves the right to refuse entry if necessary. In some cases, even if it may seem that tables are unoccupied, we may be waiting for reserved guests to arrive. Making reservations online helps us better manage our seating arrangements and provide the best possible service to all our guests.

A minimum spend of £20 per person is required for all reservations 5.30pm onwards. The minimum spend includes food and beverages but excludes service charge and any additional charges. Any shortfall in meeting the minimum spend will be added to the final bill.

For dinner reservations with seating at 5:30 pm, the table must be returned by 7:00 pm. This time limit ensures that we can accommodate subsequent reservations and provide timely service to all our guests. We kindly request your cooperation in adhering to the allocated time slot.

We respectfully ask that you are ready to be seated at the time of your reservation to ensure the best possible level of service to all of our guests. If you are running late, we kindly ask that you notify us by telephone at your earliest convenience. Your table will be held for 15 minutes after which time it may be allocated to another customer.

* If you need to modify or cancel your reservation, please notify us as soon as possible. Changes to the reservation are subject to availability. In case of cancellations or no-shows without prior notification, a cancellation fee may be charged at the discretion of the restaurant.

Management have the right to withdraw offers without prior notice.

Service Charge

A 12.5% discretionary service charge is added to the bill, which gives our customers the opportunity to express their appreciation for exceptional service provided by our staff.

However, if you would like to show your appreciation for their service, you may leave a voluntary tip.
