My husband and I visited Alams Lounge to celebrate my birthday. We found the staff to be very accommodating and the decor stunning. You take your own drinks/wine/beer as they are not a licenced restaurant, limited to two bottles of wine per couple. We ordered our starters which came quickly and were very nice, we were asked if we wanted a "breather" between starters and mains, which we were appreciative of. Although I cannot say this is the best indian meal we have ever had it is by no manner of means the worst and we would happily visit again.

Took family for a meal for 1st time.Great food atmosphere,decor and service.Staff very helpful.Another advantage is with it not having a drinks licence you take your own drinks which works out cheaper than other resteraunts.

I went with my family for a birthday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The dip tray comes with mango, raita and spicy red onions. I didn't think there was enough for five people, but we were given another tray for free when we asked. I had onion bajis for a starter but I'd reccomend the mushroom chaat, very rich and creamy. For a main I got the butter chicken with a pashwari naan. Both were the best versions I've ever tasted.

You're allowed to take your own alcohol too though you can only take so much wine per table. You save a lot of money doing this, the bill was 54 pounds for five of us where usually I'd end up paying 40 just for two elsewhere.

Overall a great evening, I would just not listen to the waiters recommendations. One of our group asked for something mild and ended up with her head on fire.

A few friends found this restaurant, now we're Asians so we should now our food but this place blew us away. Food tasted fantastic. 6 dishes tried all more stunning then the other. Only downside is its a little too small.
