Give it a try for lunch

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... read more

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.

Popped in for early evening tea and as usual we were not disappointed. Sardis offer value for money but at the same time the highest standards of cuisine and service. There are not many places that offer the choice of menu cooked exactly how it should be. I would, as I have reviewed before invite anyone to try this very... More

As title says, if you're looking for great food and good service, it has to be Sardis. The decor maybe be 'old school', but when the food is good, and the staff are friendly, it adds to the charm. I would say everywhere else in Darlington is style over substance. Darlington lacks big time in the restaurant department. However, Sardis... More

Booked this venue on strength of the great reviews but sadly we were very disappointed. We didnt feel we were made welcome by the staff apart from the youngest members of the team. Remaining staff were busy fawning over their regulars and attending to them leaving us to try to catch their eye for wine list etc so not a... More

One of my favourite places to eat: always a relaxed un-rushed evening with great food and good service. Been going for years and will always go back

We have been going here off and on for about 15 years and it never disappoints. The food on offer is of a wide variety, and there is both an a la carte and set menu to choose from. The restaurant is a family business run by two Sardinian brothers, Salvatore and Francesco, and you couldn't hope to meet two... More
