Not normally a big review writer, but I wanted to say something here as I think some of the reviews may be putting people off, which is unfair to the restaurant. In fact, we had previously avoided going in despite it being close to our new home because of some of the negative comments. We took the plunge tonight and... More

Lovely food, lovely waiter - who also seemed to be cooking! Monday night so nobody else in there (some may say this causes a 'rubbish ambience' but we liked the private restaurant!!) Biryani was lovely, lamb tikka to start was tender and flavourful! Would definitely go back!! (Don't read the bad reviews - far too harsh!)

I go to the Panahar with friends who eat here on a weekly basis, and we give a nod to other regulars. The staff, Abdul and Ali, always give a great welcome and good service; usually prompt but sometimes they are busy on a Saturday evening. After trying several dishes, I now have the King Prawn Dansak as it is... More

We had three curries and they all looked and tasted the same, when they all should have been very different. They must have one large pan of generic curry swill. They then add pre-cooked meat and garnish, pretending they are different curries. The pickle tray was awful, watery mango chutney and watery undefined red stuff...the chopped onion was ok. I...

Probably one of the worst Indian meals I've ever had. Miserable staff .. No atmosphere.. Ordered 2 totally different meals that tasted the same ..do not recommend. There are far better Indian restaurants in Sheffield- avoid this one

Good food at a reasonable price. Take your own wine, it serves soft drinks only. All the meals are worth trying but the karai is particularly good and the onion bhagis divine.

Very pleasant, helpful staff. Clean, well decorated, large dining space. Ordered two very different curries - both came looking identical with exactly the same colour, exactly the same bland taste. One was supposed to be hot and spicy, the other mild. "Tastes like scrambled eggs" was one comment from our party - not how you'd hope a madras would taste.... More

We went for a meal in here with a little trepidation, an Indian restaurant and Pizzeria (strange combination). We stuck to the Indian cuisine and were pleasantly surprised the food was top quality, the even cooked meals for us that weren't on the menu that we asked if they could do, and they did it no problem and they even...

Best thing about this place was the pickle tray!!! Tasteless curry couldn't tell the difference between the 2 Curries I ordered they both looked like they came out of a jar!! Would not go back!!!

Have been coming here since it opened. Serves the usual range of curry house fare which is consistently good. Last night (Friday) was busy and as a result, the food to quite a while to appear. Poppadoms and pickle tray kept us going though. When it came, the food was good - the naans were absolutely fantastic! The only thing... More
