Took my brother and wife here when they were down from Scotland. They were so impressed. The owner and staff have adopted our 94 year old best friend as their Da Da, grand dad in Indian Well done Luff and all the boys

We have been going here for many years, before the current owners to over. My what a change since they have been in charge. It is the place we go for that "special night" and the staff and food make it so. We tend to make a night of it and have never been rushed out. My husband loves the variety of dishes the have and has tried most with no complaints, me the unadventurist one has the same and this is now known by the staff. We are actually quite fussy and want good food and service when we eat out and have not found many places to satisfy us. Here has always been top of the list. We eat out at least once a week either lunch or dinner so some of an idea about such things.
I give here a 5star plus plus plus etc.
Firstly, may i say i am astonished by the comment made by this gibson person, i mean talk about being unlawful. May I just point out that reselling tap water is in actual fact illegal and Viceroy has been a growing business for over a decade now and i very much doubt that they will risk all that reputaion over some bottled water. Also, if you were in doubt all you had to do was express your concern and as the manager is generous (always throwing in a freebie with our meal) would have given you something as a good will gesture. Moving on, Viceroy is really a Fine dine resteraunt and really knows how to experiemnt their spices. Love their Chicken Jalfrezi's, Love their Biriyanis and Love all their fish made Dishes. Delicious! Value for Money, great management and certainly a great atmosphere!! Been dining there for over 5 years now and no complain!!! Please check it out....
I was astonished by the previous comment by ljgibson. I have eaten in Indian restaurants all over the UK and Viceroy and Signature Viceroy are one of the most outstanding I have tried. Who would have thought you could find such a gem here in Yeovil! We have been loyal customers for over five years now since moving to the area, we have tried the competition, but quite frankly there is none, the service is outstanding and the quality, freshness and presentation of food is superb. The bottled water has never been an issue for me, I have asked for tap water and it is given without question. The staff bend over backwards to help you and will even adjust dishes to your spice level. Friday night is always Viceroy night in our house!!
I dined here when it was a quiet night and found it was terrible - as well as pulling the old water trick (would you like water? - opens bottle of sealed tap water), I was greated with a bland stew like curry with a bit of branch in it. It may have been an off night but as the owner was there taking with his marketing consultant it was not something they seemed bothered about.
A great pity as I had been previously inpressed, but now this place is all show and no substance.
Viceroy Indian has the best menu of all the Asian restaurants in the area! Nothing you would expect, but loads of authentic, unusual dishes instead, and the waiters will break the whole lot down for you so you don't end up ordering anything you won't like! However, that in itself seems unlikely as all the food is beautiful and there are also a good range of alcoholic and soft drinks to wash the whole lot down with. They have another restaurant nextdoor with the same name.
