Visited here last weekend and really enjoyed the food. Even for an early evening it was good to see it busy although this didn't impact on the service time. We visited for the early bird special where you get a drink, main and side for £10, we also splashed out on a starter each. Be careful... read more

We have been there a few times, as a couple, with another couple and finally as a larger family group. The food is always exceptional and the service attentive but unobtrusive. The menu is wide ranging and advice is on hand as to what may suit certain palates. Some may be put out by the fact that there is no... More

We (3 of us) visited The Sultan of Lancaster Indian restaurant this week. The restaurant is set in an old church and has been brilliantly done up. The food is first rate, and the service is second to none. They don't serve alcohol, which at first seemed to be a negative, but on balance it allowed us to savour the... More

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
