By week 2 of a two-week cruise, when everyone starts to venture out, the premium dining restaurants can get full to capacity. The Sindhu restaurant is a firm favourite with Doris Visits. Arcadia, Britannia, Azura, Aurora and Ventura all have Sindhu and can all be booked here as can your holiday cruise. We take no money, just work with P&O to take you to the right page on their site. The Sindhu on the Arcadia is at the top of the centre lift shaft opposite the East Bar. This film was made there.
The Far East, East or Sindhu (name changes) normally rotates two menus. The internet is a wonderful thing! It is best to book and reserve and then cancel if things change.
As always the food at Sindhu was exceptional, and they also serve Sula wine along with the ship’s other selection. Sula is an Indian wine. Because of the high sunshine in India, the Sula grapes have less tannin. The wine is very light and easy to drink, maybe too easy. Normally the white is a Sauvignon Blanc but as the Vineyard in India expands, and has now added a Riesling, you may have to now select which Sula.
None of the dishes are hot. So if you might like a more spicy meal you will have to discuss this possibility when booking the table. Softshell crab is quite wonderful, but all the food is good and with the many courses and attention the meal is a dining experience.
The Sindhu is available on all but one of the P&O ships, even the new jewel in the crown, the Britannia. If you like Indian food, take a look at our Kerala film where we had two cookery demonstrations by a local chef.
