We are visiting Lancaster and staying up the road in Holiday Inn and this place was recommended so we thought we would pay it a visit. Sadly to say I was left disappointed. Firstly, the main guy and another waiter (bald chap) were pleasant and seemed to know customer service, however there was another waiter who looked like he didn't... More

A warm friendly welcome. Lovely atmosphere. Excellent food choice and quality. We both had the veg. Thali which had several veg. Dishes rice and the best nan bread we had tasted. The restaurant does not serve alcohol but had a good choice of unusual soft drinks.

I have had many wonderful meals at the Sultan of Lancaster over the years, the service and quality never falter. The decor is absolutely beautiful and the way the staff treat you like family makes me feel all the more welcome. The atmosphere is peaceful and the food is beyond delicious.

The food here is really, really good. A beautiful, traditional setting, with stunning Islamic architecture. Friendly, attentive staff. Well presented, delicious food and very filling.
