Our second visit here, as we live in Devon, we found it on our previous trip to Lancaster two years ago and liked it then. It was as good this time as before, excellent food, great atmosphere and building, and a very friendly owner who came and chatted to us and made us feel welcome.

This restaurant looks like an old church transformed in a restaurant. This gives a fantastic atmosphere to the place. We were a group of 30-40 people in a business trip. We had several indian dishes starting from the classical fried vegetables and then we had many tandory and other dishes. The waiter was extremely nice, the service very quick. I... More

I cannot fault Sultans for their outstanding customer service and high quality meals. The owners who have been born and bred in Lancaster manage to establish long-lasting relationships with each of their customers. I’ve never seen the owner(s) of a restaurant regularly sitting down with customers to join them for a meal (only applies to regulars). I’ve always been impressed... More

It is located in an old church building, ambience- bit of dark. Food was good, but almost at the end of our dinner only we have ( We went in a group) noticed that the serving staff was itching all over his hands and also we have noticed the chef was also scratching his head continuously. It was disgusting to... More

I went with 3 friends to the Sultan, on the recommendation of one of our colleagues on the course at Lancaster Uni who lives there. It is in a lovely building, a forner unitarian church that is still consecrated ground. Hence no alcohol allowed but that was not a problem for us. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They...

I have been here the once and would visit again if changes were made. Overall, the scene within the place isn't very appealing. Both me and my girlfriend felt we couldn't speak, as everyone else around us remained silent. So it was just a bit awkward. The food itself is very nice, no faults on this front. The service and...
