Having been recommended this restaurant by friends we were really disappointed. The starters were good but the main was poor quality.

First visit for a birthday party. Our hosts had hired out the whole restaurant and we shared a lovely buffet style meal. Loads of beautifully cooked food. Chicken, lamb, fish and vegetarian dishes. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful and the service was great. You may not get the bagra singer or the dancing which we experienced but this... More

Upon welcoming the service was spot on. The restaurant was quiet but looked cosy and welcoming. I don't mind having a table with no linen but when the table is sticky from last week's drinks and chutneys it's very disappointing, not to mention the cutlery! Papadoms were decent but the accompaniments were dreadful. There was however something saving this restaurant.... More

Went out with my family for a meal, we all love Indian food and we were not disappointed. The flavours of each meal were simply delightful, the lamb just melted in your mouth and the chicken was succulent. We all loved the fact that naan breads were not oily and the cumin rice was simply tantalising and very complementary to... More

My siblings and I recently held a joint birthday party to celebrate our dad’s 65th and mum’s 60th birthday. From the moment we made the call to enquire about prices and availability, the team at Sanskrit were nothing but helpful. The whole process was very simple – we placed a deposit and then finalised a menu (as Sikhs, we requested... More

I came here with my friends from the South and was thoroughly amazed by the vast amount of vege dishes available for us! Absolutely outstanding service and a friendly atmosphere! Very clean and busy (which is always a good sign)! I was not disappointed after our long travelling, very happy customers! Will be back in the Summer :) Thank you.

We ordered gosh saag, rajistan chicken. Delicious. I ordered off the menu, chicken and keema- absolutely delicious, it was too die-for! You definitely highly recommend. Thank you pooja... More

Disgusting food that tasted old and looked like its been the bin. Rude head chef/owner. When i called to complain the chef told me not to come back. Even our 4 year old child felt sick after eating the plain rice. This place should be avoided and its an awful wate of money. You are better off going to the... More
