Back in this lovely converted Methodist chapel. Unfortunately whilst the food was good my waiter seemed lost. Came to take my order, no pad, fetched pad, then pen didn't work. Wrong drink delivered, poppadoms forgotten. Very unusual. Food excellent. Lamb Balti. Kebab and samosa starter really good. Lemon Sherbet amazing.

Great food and very friendly. Didnt have to wait long. No alcohol served here but the cranberry fizz was very refreshing after our few pints before in the 3 Mariners!

Great food, great quantities and really attentive staff. The food was lovely and warm but the restaurant needed a bit more heat!

Decided to try the Sultan before going to the theatre on Saturday. Booked for 18,00 and seated on time, pleasantly busy for early evening, friendly service, had jug of the mango lassi which was great, peshwari naan & 2 curry dishes (the price included rice), all good value and nicely presented. Will visit again.,

My friend and I have just had a lovely evening at the Sultan on Lancaster. The restaurant is in a converted church, which had been tastefully decorated. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The chapati were delicious.

Arrived in Lancaster late on a Sunday and found Sultan courtesy of Google and Just Eat. Ordered on line via the JE App and Sultan delivered earlier than quoted and it was excellent. Good value too. One my better curry experiences. On discussion with my brother, who lives in Lancaster, Sultan is one of the 2 best restaurants in Lancaster,... More

Coming from Bradford one knows a good curry when you get one. This was delicious the peswari naan was to die for. It was really good value too as we had the early bird which was 9.95 for popadoms, main dish and a choice of different naans, rice or jappati plus a drink. The atmosphere was really nice and the...
