No alcohol

only visited once they do not serve alcohol and although the service was good the food was not anything special. The surroundings are ok in an old church

Yet again myself and my husband had amazing food and service as always. If something us not on the menu they will make this specially for you or if you want to change the dish on the menu in anyway they will do this. Garlic nan to die for was delicious. Service was exceptional which it always is.

The food was superb. The atmosphere peaceful, & the staff lingered, helpful & friendly without being obtrusive. The one down side of the place is the stairs into the restaurant. This place is definitely NOT disabled friendly! Shame, as it's the only thing that lowers the rating for us.

Fantastic restaurant. Probably my favourite Indian. Food is always very fresh and well prepared. Focus is on depth of flavour rather than just being hot and spicy. Portions are always very generous especially the huge beautiful nann breads (my fav is their peshwari) Prices are higher than you might expect if you are comparing to your local take away but...

Stopped by on a long journey and found this delightful curry house. It's unusual in many ways and that's what makes it stand out. Very flavoursome food and a delightful building. Host was also very chatty and pleasant. Well worth a visit.

Nine of us went for a meal on 15 Jan 2015 during "The Sultan Hour" available Sunday to Thursday, 5pm until 6.30pm, for £9.95. The food was nice, served in a relaxed, atomosphere by friendly and obliging staff who ensured that more rice was served if needed. Alcoholic drinks are not served, but this did not detract from the overall... More

I went to the sultan for a meal last night with my family (9 people in total). I had been here before but a very long time ago. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and chatty. We ordered off the pre 6.30pm menu which is popadoms, a main course, and a choice of rice or naan bread (unless... More

A wonderful looking restaurant from the outside and even better on the inside. The starters were great, all cooked to perfection. The main curry dishes we're all really authentic and great tasting. Service was excellent. Not the greatest desserts, but that's usually the case at most Indian restaurants. Overall a very good place for food.

What a wonderful welcome, atmosphere and experience. The food was fresh, tasty and quickly delivered. The Lassi mango was a delight. I requested my dish less spice, one of my companions asked for very spicy, nothing was too much trouble. They also offer alternative foods on the menu. Cannot wait to go again.
