Restaurant was had dozen or so in before 1900 which is obviously a good sign. food was very good and very reasonably priced. Very good value and plenty of parking... More

we live in the area so this is our go-to takeaway restaurant, but it is nice to dine in, particularly on a Wednesday when they have their good-value banquet meal special. Sometimes, the restaurant is a bit quiet, but the food is consistently good, with interesting dishes that don't appear on every Indian menu.

Went here on the off chance after a day travelling around the area. Glad we did. The food was very tasty and we'll presented. The starters we had were plentiful and delicious. For the main course Lamb Jalfrezi and garlic naan bread with special pilau rice. My wife had the Chicken Passanda, again with the special rice. Only criticism was... More

We went on a Tuesday night and it was not very busy. Unfortunately this restaurant misses out on passing trade because it is out of town. However it has a car park at the rear and loads of space in the road outside. So no walking far. Our meal was delicious and the service excellent. We shall definitely go again.... More

Meals are exceptional and service very good. The owner and his family members make time to talk to the diners. Have been going there for 20 years since the opening day. It's one of the best Indian restaurants in town.

Went here last Friday and had a great meal - it's a shame that the location means a lack of passing trade so it was quite quiet for a Friday night. Staff very friendly, menu enormous. We had poppadoms to start, then a duck bhuna which was gorgeous (and pretty spicy) and a chicken curry which was also good, but... More

Visited here last night (Saturday) for a meal with my family!! Unfortunately it was quiet for the 3 staff that were working front of house!! But it seemed like they did plenty of take away's!! The food was delicious really flavoursome though some of the dishes were probably spicier than usual!! They were trying out these sorbets, and they were... More

What a dump in comparison to some years ago. No imagination, no ambience, no nothing. Too far from the town centre, and not worth a visit.

I had been meaning to try The Sultan for literally years as I regularly run past it with my local club and the smells coming from the fairly unassuming building were always amazing. So, I suggested to my monthly Curry Club that we try it on our next outing, and on 23rd February we all turned-up, looking forward to trying... More
