I regularly use this place for takeaway and occasionally for a sit in meal. Service and quality is still as good as ever. If you want top quality service and food. Go here.

After a long journey and a closed hotel restaurant we decided to come here for a quick bite to eat. Food was delicious, plentiful and piping hot. Very nice staff, who were attentive without being too full on. Only downfall was the price. £35.00 for a main each, a shared side of rice, a naan and 2 lemonades. It was... More

Attend here about once a month to have some lovely Indian food. I love the balti and my partner prefers the Korma, she always says it's the best Korma. The staff are very friendly and look after you well. It's worth a visit or at least a takeaway.

Sunarga was recommended to us by a friend. The last 2 Indian meals we have had have been very disappointing. On arrival at Sunarga we were greeted and shown to our table. We ordered our meal and were presented with free papadoms and pickles (this made a nice change - to actually get something free). The restaurant was very clean... More

We have regularly eaten here for a good number of years and enjoyed amazingly tasty take aways and fabulous meals. The staff are fantastic and ready to offer suggestions of food you might enjoy. Can't recommend Sunarga enough
