“Top class food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Me and my wife went without a booking a were shown to a table straight away. The staff were very friendly & professional.

We ordered the food which was beautiful and well presented, the portions were generous.

Both of the starters were to die for and the mains were as equally as good and it was all washed down with a nice bottle of red and a couple of beers.

I have been to this restaurant a few times now and the food is always hot, very tasty and very reasonable too.

Would recommend this restaurant any time even for takeaway.

“An nice surprise.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Went here with my wife on a Sunday night at around 6.30pm. It was empty at first, with just to two of us until around 7.15. By 8pm the place was more or less full and the atmosphere was good. I ordered lamb tikka jal farazai and my wife had her usual chicken korma. Both meals were delicious and there was more than enough for both of us. My jal farazai came on a sizzling skillet, with a big plate of rice, as did my wife's. A garlic naan each and a portion of chips to share was more than enough for two of us. The waiters were very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. For our meal, a large coke and a bottle of double maxim it came to around £40, which wasn't too bad at all. Although we will most probably return to Sagar, it still isn't a patch on The Capital in Durham. This is by far the best Indian restaurant I've ever been to.

“Disappointing meal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Its not often I complain about Indian food as it is usually a safe bet and hard to get wrong. I have ate here before and while it was never great, it was perfectly acceptable and edible. On my last visit to the restaurant the food quality had significantly deteriated to the point where it was almost inedible. Bland, tasteless and very oily curry with lamb that tasted more like tough beef. Waiter seemed uninterested in our comments regarding the meal and made no effort to rectify any of my issues. Very poor food and very average service means I will not be returning to or recommending this restaurant.
