“A jewel in the crown of Huddersfield”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Since it's refit we hadn't tried Sharma, I wish we had! We had the mixed sizzler starter which was a combination of chicken tikka lamb chop fish masala seek kebab and onion bhaji. One word "yum". The main course was balti king prawn makhani and chef's lazzat daar. Both dishes well presented and a flavour to match. The staff are pleasant and helpful with the surroundings to complement. All in all well worth a visit. Don't forget it's a no licence restaurant so bring your own or if you are in a group, ask for a jug nip over the road to the railway arms and sorted.

“Great all round family dining”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Was a regular before refurbishment and will continue to eat here on a regular basis. Food is always well cooked,according to personal preference and is great value for money. Staff are very friendly and welcoming and value your custom. Service is prompt and the atmosphere relaxed and unhurried. When they realised it was my son's birthday celebration they brought him a special birthday pudding,"on the house".The roses given to all the ladies and after dinner mints were a nice touch.

“Incredible”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Came here for my sister's birthday and as there were 6 of us we ordered from the set party menu. Although it was a set menu they were really accommodating with any preferences of meat and even did us a family naan for no extra cost. The service was unbelievable and every single person that worked there were so friendly and lovely and really made us feel at home. I will come here over and over again I absolutely had the best time here. Thank you so much for having us!

“Excellent restaurant, terrific food and good but friendly service”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Always a warm and friendly welcome at this restaurant. The owner is justifiably proud of his restaurant and personally greets all diners. There is a spacious lounge area where you can browse the menu, when you are ready the order will be taken. Only a few minutes later you will be shown to your table where attentive and friendly waiters will bring your food to the table. Altogether a most enjoyable experience.

“Simply Perfect!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Visited the restaurant for the first time recently by chance as we cod not get in to our first choice.. We loved the food as it was very traditional, tasty and filling.. My partner loved the chapattis and her fish dish. I will be returning very soon... The service and timing of the food coupled with the scrumptious food ensures this place has now gone to the top of my list as my favourite Indian restaurant....
