Midweek birthday celebration for my son who fancied an Indian meal so came here following a recommendation from a friend who comes here on a regular basis. The menu consists of the usual fare with something for everyone depending on how adventurous or spicy you like your food. The food was well flavoured except the veg samosa which my wife... More

Visited here for a meal with work colleagues after work one evening. We were served promptly, and food was delivered in good time. Food was ok, I have had worse, I have had better, I would say average. Nothing wrong with the food, no complaints at all, but it didn't have a 'wow this is amazing' like some Indian restaurants...

We ate in the Sultan this evening, and didn't find the food at all enjoyable. The onion bhajis for starter were dried up, and on telling the waiter this, we were offered more. We declined in the hope that the main dishes would be better. They weren't. The lamb was very bland and dry, and the accompanying dishes were tasteless... More

The food was faultless on both occasions I've been to this restaurant. It wasn't greasy or oily like some curries can sometimes be, was just packed with flavour. Chef even made a special dish not on the menu as one of us couldn't decide what to have. Would definitely go back
