Called in here with 5 friends on the off chance and we were able to get a table. Knew beforehand there was no alcohol so that wasn't a surprise. The food was very nice and plenty of it. Friendly staff and a nice place overall. Would definitely go back.

It is rare to find a curry restaurant where the food is prepared from fresh spices and not from precooked sauce. Look no further. Everything is fresh here, which is wonderful. The menu is excellent catering for meat eaters and vegetarians alike, and the dishes available are sumptuous and appealing, with spiciness and heat, or otherwise, clearly shown. Our meal... More

Ordered a takeaway from here this week - have to say it was really poor tasting, the naan bread was burnt, the curry was swimming with oil and really just didn't taste right. On top of that they charge over the odds, probably the most expensive indian takeaway I've paid for, they should realise that others will include a sundry... More

Following reviews on this site we turned up for a meal with our purchased beer and were turned away as no alcohol is allowed on the premises. The reason given was that it is a church so consecrated ground which was clearly not the case - it is obviously a religious choice of the owners which is fine and their... More

Good food and service. Beware that it is BYO. This is the only Indian we eat at in Lancaster. Have been coming here for years.

Had a takeaway last night from here. I was recommended by a random Indian gentleman in Preston that they did a great Biryani. I've had a few biryanis and they've always disappointed me. Not this one. Last night I had the best biryani I've ever had. It came with a sauce which was a gorgeous vegetable curry too. Yum. Definitely... More

I went to Sultan last night with friends and thought the food was excellent. The flavours were spot on and the garlic naan definitely the best I've tasted. Service was good and even though there were a lot of us we didn't have to wait long. The only downside is that there is no alcohol consumption allowed but the food... More

This restaurant is special, large open dining area with high ceilings give it a more airy and colonial atmosphere than the usual cramped ones. It is a byo, though the smooth, well chilled lassis (sweet mango or salted) were the best I tasted and come highly recommended. An excellent range of very high quality food with good sized portions -... More

It was the first time we'd been to this restaurant. We've been to many Indian restaurants previously, but what sets the Sultan of Lancaster apart is the exceptional service the staff provide, the exquisite deco inside which truly complements the cuisine and culture and the food is simply delicious! A hidden gem that we hope other people will stumble across,... More

The atomosphere was lovely, we were placed in a quiet area which was nice because it offered privacy. The food was really well prepared, and full of flavour. We didnt have to wait long at all and the service was polite and relaxed. Overall one of the best Indian meals Ive had. Will return :) the place is beautiful aswell.... More
