This restaurant serves northern Indian cuisine - lots of breads, less rice - and we had the buffet for dinner. The selection was modest compared to "international buffets" but Sagar more than makes up for it with excellent food. Every item I took was delicious and I couldn't help but go back for more helpings - several times. I really... More

Went because we r staying at Hard Rock Cafe and it was close and reviews were good. Did not disappoint. Best Indian food I've had in a long time. Service was excellent. Such a refreshing change to be confused by having so many choices as a vegetarian and plenty for my completely opposite meat eating partner.

They have very good North Indian food but limited menu. This restaurant is in ground floor of Bayview Beach resort. I felt it is a bit costly but worth it. Just to mention, Bayview also provide room service for order from Sagar, which was a plus point for us. As an alternative try the Indian restaurant opposite to Bayeview Resort... More

I recently visited Sagar in Penang with my family. It was my first visit to sagar in penang before that I have only visited sagar in kuala Lumpur. The food was no so tasty as I was expecting. The sagar in KL has much better food taste and quality. The staff was efficient and were always on the standby.

I've been continuing to look for authentic North India food in Penang, and heard about Sagar. Visiting this place with skepticism, I was very pleasantly surprised at the menu and the quality of food and service. The menu includes some delectable dishes from North Indian cuisine. The food was very much authentic of North Indian food - although it was... More

I can only agree with Alison. I had been to this restaurant before and had a very good experience. However, last night they were absolutely atrocious. The "deep fried fish" could have been used for building a brick wall, it was so overcooked. The Chicken Dopiaza was simply pre-boiled chicken pieces (defrosted) with a tasteless sauce poured over it. I... More

We were told this was the place for a great curry but how wrong that tuned out to be. We are all seasoned curry eaters and one of our party was Asian and an expert cook who was very critical of the food which she said was like a gelatinous paste. Next day we all had very bad tummies and... More

Very nice restaurant in the Bayview Hotel at the top end of Batu Ferringhi. They had a lot of choice for vegetarians and the service was brilliant. Definitely recommend.

I am not so keen on having an Indian food but I will make this as an exception. I had Capati and Briyani with mutton Keema. And it is heaven...just like I can't stop eating. To top all that I tried the Chicken Malai Tikka & Palak Paneer (hope I got the spelling right). It is all the perfect combination.... More

We just finished dinner here tonight & all i can say is wow! The service, choice, quality & taste was superb. Hard to find for a tourist but we were referred to this place by a second generation Penang local who rates this as the best Indian on the Island. Absolutely first class.
