Had a meal here with my friends tonight and were made to feel very welcome. Food was extremely good and full of flavour!! and I was envious of my friends meals too. Couldn't fault the food, and we were not rushed and had a really relaxing meal. You pay for what you get. Wasnt disappointed at all, far from it!!... More

This was our first visit for a take away at this restaurant. When we walked in we were very politely greeted and made to feel welcome. The staff were very friendly and very chatty which was great. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and we were even given a complimentary starter. The food was plentiful and was of a high... More

Despite the menu altering, we were assured of good food, and the service upon collection was superb. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was up to usual very high standard, and the hard to please visitor, was very pleased.

We tried this place when we moved to Cheylesmore 5 years and couldn't believe how friendly the waiters were! Friendly environment nice and modern yet humble decor. We have at times been given free drinks and starters. The curries are great but not necessarily better than anyone else's favourite curry house...the food is standard but what the Sonargaon does better... More

I used to love the Sonargoan since moving back to Coventry in 1989 and, even when we moved further out from Cheylesmore, we would never think about going anywhere else to eat in or takeaway. Like some other reviews here I've found that the quality of the food isn't as good as in the past and it just isn't special... More

Hello DerekH, firstly thank you for taking the time to write out a well informed review for the restaurant. I am always happy to receive feedback from clients and to learn of ways I may improve as a Manager. Firstly you are correct to assume that the restaurant has undergone new management. Unfortunately the previous manager is no longer with... More

I had to stay in Coventry for a night and as my Company's policy restricts the cost of a room stayed in a Premier Inn on the ring road. I was going to use the associated restaurant but as it was full and I couldn't book a table I used trip advisor to find me somewhere to eat. I'm not... More

I apologize if you have felt the portions have decreased. We have now changed our containers to a more durable plastic alternative to the weak foil ones we had previously used. We make sure we give a very suitable portion for value and I assure you your money is going towards the quality in which we prepare our dishes. The... More
