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

This is a traditional restaurant and I hope it never changes. Photos on the wall shows it going back many years. Very relaxing, we love it.

The Saagar often gets neglected in reviews but it is a gem of an Indian. Located in Sherwood about a mile north of the city, it looks like many suburban curry houses with kitsch decor of Clive of India and 'Mrs Clive' However, it's the food that you come for. It's more expensive than many Nottingham Curry Houses but the... More

Got a takeaway on a Friday night. King prawns were tough as old boots! Both dishes under seasoned and tasteless. Was really disappointed. As it was a takeaway couldn't be bothered to complain, just won't go again.

Booked a table for 2 and said we'd be there in 15 minutes, the guy didnt seem very enthusiastic but confirmed the reservation. So we got in a taxi, spent £10 getting there- half way there another guy called back to say that they had been closed for half an hour and his colleague had made a mistake. I guess... More
