Always a warm welcome, always busy (sign of a good restaurant to me), food choice superb, staff always so helpful in advising about ingredients & spice etc. Great atmosphere, can cater for large parties & tables & being able to take your own drink makes a huge difference to the bill. Highly recommend the Sunam, with such a choice of... More

We were welcomed by the staff and quickly given menus. There is the usual wide choice and selection varied from the 'Balti' to the dry tandoor dishes. Everyone was very satisfied with their choices and as we had been able to take our own drinks in, the price of the evening was excellent. The atmosphere was fun and friendly with... More

We are big curry lovers and this is the best curry we have had in a very long time. There was a wide selection on different dishes both lamb and chicken where lovely. They were very busy on Saturday night and had a short wait for our booked table however the taste and quality of the food more than made... More

We have eaten at the sunam in the past and returned after a break, and how pleased we were. Excellent space, service and food . There is an excellent choice of vegetarian dishes and the four of us found the dishes spicey hot and tasty. Service was excellent but not pushy. A big bonus is you can bring your own... More

This restaurant is consistently good - the food, the staff who are so friendly and funny. The décor is traditional but warm and cosy, it is a very relaxed atmosphere and you are made very welcome. Very good value! Definitely one of our favourite Indian restaurants in the area!

I went to the Sunam Balti with a group of friends for a leaving do. The good thing about this restaurant is that you can take along your own drink and there is no corkage fee, so that can keep the cost down a bit. The food arrived pretty much together and was warm. I wouldn't say the food was... More

The last time we visited the Sunam it was still a cosy, bustling, elbow jostling little place. So it was interesting to visit last night with family to see if anything had changed. The staff are still friendly and obliging, the décor is still vibrant yet relaxing and the menu is still tantalisingly good. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the... More

Generous portions of excellent food keep us returning to the Sunam. Being able to take own drink is also a bonus. Service is really good, with Mott setting the standard.

I will keep this short! Great food, personable staff who are not overbearing and great value for money. You can take your own alcohol which is the clincher for me. Has warm ambience and great for any occasion.

Good - Restaurant is large and comfortable. Service was pretty snappy. There is a bar but you can also BYO (unusual?). Starters were really nice (I had a mixed kebab/tikka). Coffee is served with cream (I've always liked that). Bad - My chicken Madras curry was bland. Served in the 'soup' style (zero texture) it was a real disappointment. The... More
