Went Thursday night entered restaurant and could see waiter in restaurant through glass doors but after 15 minutes standing waiting for someone to greet us we left disappointed as we were keen to try this place out. It wasn't as if we weren't seen which made it worse as a polite acknowledgement would have been all that was needed as... 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

We have been visiting Alams regularly for the last two years. The staff are very friendly and will cater to your tastes when asked. Very helpful. The food is generous in their portions and the Masala fish are fantastic. Lamb Asian Masala is the best around. Take your own alcohol makes it a cheap night out, so I don't understand... More

I went to this Indian restaurant last year and found it alright, nothing to get excited about but ok. On my recent visit we were stood at the bar for quite a while before anyone came to attend to us, the poppadoms were ok but the pickle tray consisted of something yellow, onions coated in something red and something white,...

Decided to order a takeaway from here as the reviews are generally very good. Food arrived luke warm at best. My Lahore Balti main was not hot as stated & had a burnt cumin after taste. Even the appearance had a dark brown tinge due to the overcooked spice. My aloo Ghobi side was ok, along with my Chapattis. No... More

This restaurant is a little gem. Since it opened we have been numerous times and never been disappointed. The food is lovely and very good portions. There is a good choice of dishes and you can ask for milder or hotter - as you like it. The staff are very obliging and try to accommodate everyone. We have recommended Alam's... More

What can I say? There is no denying that the food is good, but after not having a take away for a few weeks I was very disapointed when I collected my meal and discovered quite heavy price increases from the last time I went. Some items have gone up 20% (onion bhaji up from £2.50 to £3.00). I know... More

Good food and atmosphere at a reasonable price, like the idea of bringing your own booze, makes an evening out even cheaper. Well worth a visit.

Visited early on a Saturday evening in July having travelled from Spain. Quiet but that was due to the hot weather . The staff are polite, helpful, accommodating and in no way imposing. They know their business and there are various dishes which differ to the norm..........we tried them and can recommend them. The menu represents excellent value and we... More
