My cousin and I had dinner here while both traveling for work (he from Scotland, I from the US). The restaurant provided us a nice, quiet atmosphere to catch up, and the meal was excellent from start to finish. The host made us feel very welcome, and the service was commendable. I would highly recommend Alams to any lover of... More

We were visiting Barnsley and didn't know the area. This was a fantastic find. Super food and very friendly staff in a modern setting. The views from the car park are stunning and the friendly horses were a final bonus !

Once again we were served a delicious first class meal by friendly and attentive staff! The Massala fish starter and Onion bajji starter which we always share was a taste sensation! Followed by Chicken Jaipuri and Chicken Tandoori Balti Saag, pilau rice and two keema Naans!!!! Absolutely and divinely stuffed! Well looked after and a surprisingly affordable bill!.

This took a couple of minutes to process in my mind, but actually it wasn't a bad thing at all - beer is a habit more than anything it seems. I ordered prawn puree and a medium chicken curry with a name I can't recall.... More

Also the prawn Bhuna was delicious and stuffed with prawns. Pitty it's not closer to home. We will return another time thought. It's definitely... More
