Me and my partner have been before when they have specials on Thursdays and Sundays and the quality is always fantastic. We sat inside and the waiters were so lovely and helpful, making the experience rememberable. Although the food is more expensive when it is not on those days, it is well worth the money!!

Staff were fantastic, timed service of different courses perfectly and perfect timing of drinks service. Very friendly but respectful of our space as well. Overall great value for the excellent quality of food and service, thoroughly recommend for a small group such as ours, a big group or just a couple for a meal out.

We ordered a meal for the family for collection, when arriving home we were short of one portion of rice, as we live a good 20 minutes drive it wasn't practicable to drive there and back to collect another. I telephoned to complain and asked if they could drop one off as it was their mistake. The response was ill... More

We've been going to the Sunarga for a few years now & can honestly say we've never been disappointed with either the food or the service as it's always excellent! A firm favourite for me is the lamb rogan josh which is always flavoursome & hits the spot every time. Service is polite, efficient & professional & we wouldn't consider... More
