this is a very special place for me, and the lunch is just great value two courses for £10, you can not go wrong. service is great. it may be a bit dated but for me that adds to its overall Cham.

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

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

We were there friends to celebrate a birthday. Once again the food was excellent, just as you would expect from Sardis. The staff are very efficient and friendly. It is always a pleasure to visit this place. Back again in May

There were 8 of us all having different meals and all meals were beautifully presented and excellent quality. The service we received was superb nothing was too much trouble. It is quite intimate and perfect for a laid back quality meal with friends or couples. We had between us the steak. chicken, duck, pork and rack of lamb all perfectly... More
