We have visted Saagar on about half a dozen occasions, but have found our experience gradually less and less enjoyable. A constant throughout has been the freezing temperatures - on our last visit I had to keep my overcoat on, and I'm someone who normally PREFERS lower temperatures, especially when dining. The decor is old fashioned and the whole place... More

when walking towards this restaurant it looks very welcoming. On entering its the same , bright warm and clean. When being shown to my table the first thing you notice is the red coat the waiter has on it needs ironing and washing. Menu given and you notice the prices are high ( £9:90 for the meal plus rice at... More

Have eaten here for many years, the food always excellent. Not overly friendly staff (!) but food has never disappointed, until recently. The last three meals, including one takeaway have been very lacking. All rather tasteless and this evening I didn't even want a doggy bag! What on earth as happened? The front staff are the same, I'm assuming there... More

Top quality food that never disappoints - lamb tandoori best ever! No nonsense decor, but still authentic feel to the restaurant. Good choice of dishes and generous portions - nothing changes after 30 years of visiting!!

A warm welcome is guaranteed by proprietor Peter or one of his team at the Saagar. With an enviable reputation locally, and a loyal following of very regular customers, this is a step up from a curry house to a 'proper' restaurant. Very clean and well presented with good quality table linen and cutlery, as seems customary with Indian and... More

I live in a city of great curries and don't usually need to spend a lot of money to get good food. Takeaways from here are a proper treat. But the food is very good and there is tons of it, a meal for two easily feeds three, four if you aren't too greedy.

After long drive from London we needed a hot tasty meal and ended up at Saagar It is an old fashioned establishment-almost like going back to the 70s. We got a warm welcome and had the order taken quite quickly The place is not cheap-almost £9 per dish -i thought the popadums could have been free at that price. The... More

Used to love this place, it would always be my first choice for Indian dining. We took the family there last night for a birthday celebration, oh how disappointed we where! Poor service and poor food. My brother had chicken madras and the chicken was very dry. When he complained the manager said it was the same chicken as we... More

The Saagar is nothing less than a Sherwood institution which has prospered over many years under the hands of the same customer friendly team. I have enjoyed many delicious meals over the years, particularly their take aways with their quirky surprise offerings such as a mango, a whole pineapple, chocolate or the odd bonus dish. These gestures show that they... More
