Just been for lunch again today, new lunch menu, still the same excellent value 2 courses for £10. Where else can you go for value like that, added to great food and welcoming atmosphere.

Always excellent food and service. Tables great. Table clothes, cutlery, large enough to move food and drinks. Good atmosphere, yes the decor is quirky and odd, but do you know what, the more you go the more it grows on you. Can't fault it. More restaurants should take a leaf out of this classic establishment.

Our meal - Antipasto, roast duck, followed by a cheese platter was superb. Having eaten in many excellent restaurants on our 9 weeks world holiday we rated it as one of the 3 best. The duck was cooked to perfection and the other cold platters were comprehensive and generous.

Visited this place with a colleague and customer and from th outside it looked like a cafe, on entering it didn't seem to improve much (maybe because it was during the day), but from there it got better. We had 3 different lunches, and each and everyone were delicious, hot and the side dishes were fresh. I must say it... More

We have been to Sardis a number of times and decided to take our friends who hadn't been before. We booked a table to ensure that we wouldn't be disappointed. Sardis do a set lunch, two courses for £10 and I believe they change the menu regularly. The food was delicious! The waiters did a great job and were very... More

Back to our favourite restaurant at the weekend with a new menu to tantalise the tastebuds. I can recommend the carpaccio of salmon in citrus dressing, absolutely delicious. The fillet of beef followed, as always it was cooked to perfection accompanied by the most stunningly cooked vegetables. I say as I have many times before that you will find it... More

Lunch is great value and I can't understand why more people don't visit this restaurant. Lunch is £10 for a starter and a main course. These are large portions and there is a choice of about 4-5 options for both. The food is excellent and cooked to the highest standards. The service is friendly and professional. The décor is a...

Visited Sardis again in May 2015. What more can you say. The food service and atmosphere are just superb. If you have not been yet give it a go. Good value for money.
