I hadn't realised that Alams doesn't sell alcohol and you have to bring your own. 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

Visited for the first time and was very impressed with the food we had and also the staff were very friendly & polite. We had Arabian mutton, which was delicious. Very tender and full of flavour. 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

Visited Alams Lounge again last night with friends and family. The owner and staff are very friendly and the prices are reasonable. The food is excellent - in my view they serve the best curry in Barnsley. Will be back again!

An absolutely wonderful meal! There were six of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed everything ordered. Fantastic, friendly, relaxed service. We have also recently used the takeaway delivery service via Just Eat, which was equally as good. We will be back!

First visit here for a number of years and not sure why....place was spot on, food was terrific and the price was very reasonable. The only downside i suppose is that it doesnt have a license so bringing your own booze is the only option unless you drink soft drinks. Will be back again!

Couldn't be bothered to cook, so Googled "Barnsley cheap Tuesday eating out" and Alam's came back as one of the top hits. 20mins later we rocked up and asked for a table for two. Masterstroke. Everything was class. Hot, fresh poppadoms. Cold bottles of coke. Warm plates for starters and mains. Clean glasses and plates. Attentive staff. I won't bore... More

Went to the Alams Lounge buffet last night. Great atmosphere and the food was fresh, tasty and there was a great variety. The staff were very professional and friendly and it was a most enjoyable evening. We will most certainly be going again.
