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.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

If you are looking for a delicious Indian meal this is the place to go. Always high quality and the service is excellent. Famiy run so you feel personal service from the friendliness received from walking in the door to the time you leave.

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Food was at an very good standard, naan bread among the best I've had, chicken tikka was excellent along with the pakora starter. Went on Valentines Night which was a set menu (was a bit disappointed at this as it wasn't explained to myself when I booked the table and prefer a full menu, prefer it when there's the option to take the full menu, if there was it wasn't explained to us), rose petals were on the table and we were greeted with a glass of bubbly which made up for it. Food came very quickly which was surprising despite how busy it was. Only downside to the service was that no-one offered to take our jackets which were sat behind myself and my girlfriend and we never received an offer for more drinks, despite my bottle being visibly empty. Overall a very good meal though, highly recommended since the restaurant has been done up.

Special shoutout to the bearded Indian man with the broad Scottish accent, his serving of the "garlic naan breed" was sensational.

“Believe The Hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Where do I begin.....This place has to be one of the most established restaurants in the central belt. It is a family run restaurant and this can be felt as soon as you walk in. I Have been coming here ever since I could remember. The food is just out this world, high quality Indian food which is always consistent irrespective of how busy they are.

The service is another contributing factor in why I visit this establishment on a weekly basis , Staff are always friendly, smiling and whilst working hard make time for a wee chit chat.

Sanam's, has recently been refurbished and now combined with the flawless service and food, takes this restaurant to a whole new level. No other Indian restaurant nearby is remotely on par with this place.

P.S Coffee's and Desserts are a must and have to be tried here, They are part of my weekly fix and a sweet tooth is not required

Highly Recommend a visit ASAP

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Went with my Girlfriend for our evening meal on Friday the 7th of February. Great meal and great service by the staff! The staff had a brilliant sense of humour and made conversation with us and everyone in the restaurant! Will definitely be back soon and would recommend it to anyone looking to have a great Indian meal. Thanks to all for making it such a great night!

“Couldn't resist another visit!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Enjoyed a great evening and fantastic food with friends who had travelled from down south for weekend. Was a Saturday night and we hadn't booked but were given a table after only a 15 minute wait. Staff were all friendly and helpful even though the place was very busy and they were run off their feet. The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful and must mention the chilli bhoona as its a personal favourite. The sweets are lovely and they now have the wonderful Caledonian Cheesecake which we all had to try a slice of. Yum!!! I'm quite sure we will return again very soon.
