Can't fault this excellent Indian Restaurant. Good, varied food menu and although not licensed, a large range of delicious drinks. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu. Nicely presented food and very tasty. Good sized portions. One of the big attractions of our visit was the decor of the building. It is an old... More

I was a student at Lancaster University the best part of 30 years ago. Me and my housemates used to be regulars at Moghuls restaurant and were wonderfully looked after by Naim and his family/ colleagues. Soon after I left University, Naim opened the much more lavish and ornate Sultan of Lancaster, selling Moghuls soon after to friends of his... More

Excellent service, very friendly and welcoming staff. Peaceful atmosphere, lots of space and probably the best mango lassi's in the north. Food was great, we had mixed grill, naan, soup... Reasonable prices too and close parking available (which was also reasonable). Would like to eat there again.

In Blackpool you would get a soup and nann bread also for that price. I have been eating in Indian restaurants all of my life... More

For £9.99 you can get poppodoms, curry and rice or naan plus a drink - great deal - I think beween 5-6.30pm approx. Waiters were very professional and attentive. Beautiful building in a converted church. The naan was gorgeous. Very tasty. There was nothing I could fault but as a vegetarian I would have like some more interesting or creative... More
