Birtley's Best Kept Secret!

I have been enjoying Indian cuisine for decades and have been to scores of Indian restaurants, all of them much the same in the meals that they offer. Sunarga, though, offers something else. It is easily the best restaurant of its kind I have ever visited. The range of dishes is enormous, including... read more

I've been here twice now. It is Indian with special Bangladeshi items on the menu. On both occasions it was very quiet but this is strange as this is some of the best food I have had.

We enjoy the takeaway from Sunarga every few months. Consistently good and the takeaway is much cheaper than the restaurant. We would highly recommend!

Have heard good things about this restaurant so decided to try it. Food quality exceptional but not worth the money. Having compared eating in opposed to takeaway, I was charged 68.82% for the privilege of eating in. Quite happy to pay 20% but certainly not worth the prices charged. Had to wait nearly 45 minutes for starter and another 40... More
