We are regulars at Alams Lounge and I thought the last Owners would have to take some beating. The new staff are just as friendly and make you very welcome. The masala fish starter is excellent and comes with freshly prepared, crisp salad. The main courses are prepared just how you ask them to be and we even invented our... More

Four of us went here last night and both the food and the service was top notch. My daughter only likes mild curries and they were happy to cater for her. The garlic nan bread is to die for as is the mushroom rice. All are curries were delicious. The staff were very friendly and the new management are extremely... More

Don't bother going. Most disappointing curry since I remember. No flavour no depth and lacked ingredients. Egg fried rice was boiled rice with egg added to it and delivery man took off with my change.

I noticed that this place was 'under new management', no despite an average experience before, I thought I would give them another try. Ordered a takeaway via 'Just Eat'. The food was delivered in good time by the manager himself, who was friendly enough. The food however was only average. I ordered the Lahori Balti again & again it was... More

Great atmosphere, genuinely friendly staff, amazing food and affordable prices. The curries are big and inventive at very reasonable prices, the décor is cosy and the free chilled water is a great touch. Tried a different Indian recently, but we were so appalled at the service and prices, we paid for drinks and walked out, then went to Alam's. I... More
