Description: Sanam Tandoori Restaurant first opened its doors in 1976 and has gone from strength to strength on the back of authentic Indian cuisine and a dedicated personal service. It was originally founded and managed by Mr Mohammed Anwar until 1999 when he passed the reins down to his sons - Nadeem, Waseem, Naeem and Azeem - who continue to run the restaurant to the present day. Over the years the restaurant has undergone several significant refurbishments - most notably its most recent renovation in November 2012. Today the restaurant is without a doubt one of the most stylish eateries in Central Scotland.

“Fantastic Value, Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Myself and the GF have been here twice in the last month and both times, ordered different foods> Both times we have been exceptionally pleased with what we got.

Food was exactly as the (vast) menu advised - so much so it has got teh GF trusting the menu and trying new things :) So much choice and everything prepped freshly means your tastebuds are in for a wee treat everytime.

Staff are friendly and never pushy to hurry you up, even on a busy satrurday night. Valuewise, its very reasonable.

Cant wait to go back. Only one other Indian in Scotlands Central Belt I would go over this (Charcols in Glasgow) but its too far away.

“Chilli lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Tried most indian restaurants in central region and this one is definitely the best. It offers great value for money, the food is great especially the chicken tikka garlic chilli plus the lamb is also very tender. The atmosphere in the place is great and the surroundings are lovely. We are now regular visitors most weeks.

“THE Falkirk Indian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We have used this restaurant for years and it just gets better and better either sitting in or taking away the food is just fantastic; however sitting in is a real treat as the attention you receive along with the atmosphere is just great.
Forget the other Indian Restaurants - just come here!

I have been a regular at the sanam for many years, and the food just gets better and better. Delicious food, an amazing choice on the menu, lovely newly refurbished restaurant and very friendly and personnable staff. First class. Thoroughly recommend the Chicken Tikka Chilli Bhuna!
