We decided to try the Sultan's Sunday lunch buffet after seeing it advertised in their window. At £7.95 per head, we weren't expecting great things but we were very pleasantly surprised. The service was extremely efficient, polite & friendly and the food was delicious. The meal begins with poppadums and sauces, and then goes on to starters of chicken tikka,... More

Very attentive staff and good tasty food. My only grumble is that we ordered aperitifs while waiting for our food, but when the bill came, they were each priced at over £1 more than the price on the menu! In addition the first bill had the mixers priced at £4 a shot!! The staff sorted it, but it shouldn't have... More

Food was reasonable but service was quite poor. Everything was going well until my pilau rice came out with added protein (a dead fly in it). I actually was not that bothered about it (these things happen from time to time) but instead of asking whether they could offer a discount off the bill perhaps instead they rushed back to... More

We went for a pub lunch in their pub next door. The food was freshly cooked and served from next door main restaurant. It was delicious and value for money

First of all I would like to thank sultan for an amazing and entertaining night. Where do I start. •Food •service •ambience Was all perfect. I would personally like to say a big thank to the sultan staff (Mushi) for giving the night we weren't expecting. We will definitely recommend sultan for a meal out and, will definitely come back....

Ate here last night and it was nasty....... my crab cake starter didn't taste of anything and my chicken main was awful the sauce was so watery it separated on my plate. Had been going here for a while but this is the second bad meal. Will not be returning

Had excellent food in past, so had high hopes. Sadly feel let down. Whilst starters, peshwari naan and lamb shank curry were good, the chicken korma was poor and the tikka masala and rugwara dishes were not as expected, the latter being spicy when not marked as such on the menu. When we queried this, the staff did not apologise... More

Visited on a Wednesday evening with friends. Firstly place was empty which is not a good sign. The food is OK but not as good as other Indian restaurants in Wokingham. The one issue that we had is one friend doesn't like spicey food so ordered a tandoori chicken and explained she wanted it mild which it certainly wasn't. When... More

£5 for a tiny chicken starter that tasted bland then £12 for lamb that was slimey, seriously lacking in quantity and half of it tasted like beef to me. Even the naan was hard. Avoid.
