I’ve been coming to this place for over 20 years now – I must have been 50 or more times – has a special place in my heart (and stomach!) It’s basic – down-market to be fair – but sometimes that’s all you need – and the food is decent for the money.
If you’re hungry and haven’t booked anywhere this place won’t disappoint – just walk in and order a balti. They used to come in huge iron dishes, but they’re smaller portions now. The food is the standard sort you’d expect of an inexpensive Indian – all perfectly tasty – and you can get HUGE duvet sized naan breads (which I’ve not seen anywhere other than Birmingham).
As with many Asian restaurants, the toilets are tiny and very basic and next to the kitchen (which some will consider a bit grim). With three floors they’re certainly not short of space (I’ve never booked).
This place is definitely NOT one for a special occasion but it’s a great meeting point and perfect for people on a budget.
(The Punjab on Neil Street is a cut above Sartaj but it is more expensive and can be busy.)
