Reliably good, if a little unexciting.

Have been coming here since it opened. Serves the usual range of curry house fare which is consistently good. Last night (Friday) was busy and as a result, the food to quite a while to appear. Poppadoms and pickle tray kept us going though. When it came, the food was good - the naans were... read more

Very pleasant, helpful staff. Clean, well decorated, large dining space. Ordered two very different curries - both came looking identical with exactly the same colour, exactly the same bland taste. One was supposed to be hot and spicy, the other mild. "Tastes like scrambled eggs" was one comment from our party - not how you'd hope a madras would taste.... More

We went for a meal in here with a little trepidation, an Indian restaurant and Pizzeria (strange combination). We stuck to the Indian cuisine and were pleasantly surprised the food was top quality, the even cooked meals for us that weren't on the menu that we asked if they could do, and they did it no problem and they even...

Best thing about this place was the pickle tray!!! Tasteless curry couldn't tell the difference between the 2 Curries I ordered they both looked like they came out of a jar!! Would not go back!!!

Enjoyed a lovely chicken bhuna with pilau rice and freshly made peshwari naan. My husband enjoyed his lamb naga; both dishes were full of flavour. The waiter lacked personality and because it was midweek the restaurant was virtually empty and therefore lacking ambience. We have dined here before on two occasions and have never been disappointed with the food. However,... More

Went here on a Wednesday evening and used our Gourmet society membership to obtain 25% off the total bill. First off this establishment is NOT licensed so please be aware of this if you like an alcoholic drink with your meal, apparently you may bring your own and they do not charge corkage. The place itself is reasonably decorated and... More

I really don't like giving low rating reviews for restaurants but Panahar doesn't deserve more than a "poor". Firstly, the management had not put enough staff on for a Friday night. The restaurant was full and there were only three staff absolutely run off their feet. Management - on a full Friday or Saturday *you need to put more staff... More

Very surprised by some of the average reviews for Panahar. In my experience - having eaten in the restaurant twice with friends, and a couple of take-aways - the place warrants a 5 star review. Authentic dishes, pleasant surroundings, and in a leafy suburb of Sheffield - what's not to like? Plus you can BYOB with no corkage fee.

Over two hours wait no main course didn't have time to eat before our mini bus. A real shame traveled so far and such a bob-arrr and un friendly service.

We've enjoyed a few meals here over the last few years. Always found the good to be off good quality and staff friendly and efficient. You can bring your own drinks and we find the ability to buy for pint containers of real ale from the rising Sun across the road to be a good option. There are plenty of... More
