“The best indian in the area!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We hadn't been to Sammy's for many years as we moved slightly out of the area. We finally managed to get there last night and WOW we had forgotten just how good it is. Mixed starter for 2, chicken rogan josh and a chicken curry with spinach were all to die for .... not forgetting the peshwari naan. Even though there are indian restaurants closer to us my husband has said no way are we going anywhere other than Sammy's in future! We be returning very soon I hope!

“sammys”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

been going to sammys ever since it opened and by far its the best curry restaurant i've been to,
we always go early as it can get very busy, and the fact you take your own beer means it is a very cheap night out to anyone who has never been give it a go you will not be let down

“My favourite by a mile .”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We have been going to Samarkand for years . We try other "Indians" but they are not a patch on Sammys . We always return !
We were there Saturday 15/12/12 with friends , it was packed . The atmosphere was electric . The food fantastic . Sammy and family are great .
Please don't go as you will make it harder for me to get a table , Joke ! Joke !

“Best Indian I've been too...”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Been going to this place for twenty years now and still me of the best about. Great menu and excellent value and love the fact you take your own booze and don't end up paying twenty quid for a fiver bottle of wine. Sammy is an excellent host and the place looks lovely now downstairs has been opened up too.
