Large (although somewhat noisy at times, due to solid floors) restaurant, with a modern bar/dining feel, but great Indian food, served well, often with a twist and with some impressive `specials`. The service is usually very good and food is excellent. They offer an `up market` experience (compared to other nearby Indian restaurants) but still provide the standard fare along... More

We've been here a few times and went back last Friday - the food was disappointing as was service! We were given drinks but no menus - when we ordered two beers only one arrived. The food tasted fine although very salty but the crab cakes were so greasy - you pushed your fork on top and oil flowed freely.... More

We used to frequent this restaurant regularly but moved from the area . We came back after 8 years not only did the manager/owner still remember us!! The food was just as amazing as we remembered... This place really is a gem.

We have been visiting Samsara for seven years and always have a good service. Staffs are very friendly and attentive. Never had any bad experience. Friday and Saturday is very busy. Waiting time is longer than normal but when foods arrives on the table its always fresh and worth the wait. We love the glittering wall.

Not one to register a complaint about a restaurant, however this Indian restaurant must rank as the worst experience ever. We booked a table for a Saturday night in January for 8 PM arriving on time. There were several tables available and we were offered the one in the door which we declined stating that one member of the party... More

Went for meal, 4 of us. We were having the special deal, starter main and rice dish £10.95. Before we got to look at menu, we were asked if we wanted popadoms. We ordered 4, usually about 60/70p each. We got a basket of small triangle popadoms and 3 small pots of chutneys. When I looked at the menu the... More

My partner and I ordered two completely different curries, they both tasted the same. My favourite part of Indian food is that curries will always taste different. I think I made my point clear.

I've eaten here a few times now and it can be very hit or miss. I've had some really good food here but I've also had some POORLY cooked food to. In fact my last meal there was bad that I'm going to give it a miss for a while. It's one of the more expensive Indian restaurants in Cheam.

Best Indian food around. The food is really tasty and delicious plus they take taste-card. Very friendly staff. Amazingly clean. The restaurant is spacious. Maybe more booths would soften it a bit. Highly recommend.
