Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Despite having booked our table weeks ago the restaurant had no space for us when we arrived. Their policy is to cram in as many people as possible and never mind those people who have booked - a totally unacceptable way to run a restaurant....Avoid at all costs. We walked out and went to Raj Spice next door where we were treated to magnificent food with superb and swift serviceAvoid at all costsMore

Great evening dining. We booked last minute and glad we did so as it was absolutely buzzing. Waiters were run off their feet but never missed a beat and were unfailingly polite. Delicious food and very reasonable price. Wish we lived nearby as we would...return ASAP!More

Spotted this restaurant while we were staying in Kenilworth, and decided to book a table, which was the best decision we made ! Very busy when we arrived, which is always a good sign ! We chose paneer, and golda chingri starters, which were both...excellent, and for mains we had, gosth katta masala, sunam special, with parathas, rice, and mushroom bhaji, they were absolutely amazing, best Indian food we’ve had in a very long time ! The staff were run off their feet, but our food was hot, and brought to our table in good time. I highly recommend visiting this little gem, make sure to book !More

Went in there with 14 friends. Great service given how busy it was. Everyone loved their food from chicken tandoori, vege dishes, fish and lamb. Starters and side dishes tasty. Just a range of lovely dishes. Just wish it still did kingfisher beer! Highly recommended

This is great curry house - it has a homely traditional feel to it where the focus is on the food & the service. The chicken balti and chicken xhacuti are stand outs. We came here twice in a week 👍🏻

Not a bad meal, but service a tad strange. One of our party had placed a reservation ahead but when an advance party of us four turned up without him and mentioned his name, they ignored it and immediately led us to a table with...only four seats. When we mentioned we were a bigger party, they kept asking how many - we didn't know how many had been reserved and they couldn't find any information about the reservation... so we just sat and waited until the rest appeared. But it didn't show their reservation system in good light. Nonetheless, we were seated and sorted with pints of draught cobra, along with poppadums with a quite good range of 5 accompaniments, the mango chutney having a nice background bite rather than be over-sickly sweet. There was a pleasant smell of caramelised onions and tikka from frequently-brought sizzling platters all around us, and it was clear they cater for quite a variety of tastes and ages. Next time I may try a shashlick! I opted for the Tikka Chilli Massala, which was categorised as only one chilli strength, but came with plenty of sliced green chillies that created good heat spikes as punctuation, rather than have a dull samey burn throughout. My colleagues remarked that they quite enjoyed their Jal Frezie (one mentioned that they preferred it over the Xacuti the prior night, which I found quite sweet to the taste). Another of our party went for the Maricha - which was pretty bitey and let people know they'd ordered one with kick. I'd return again, but have to say I preferred the Lembu-style one I had in the Indian Edge... so will probably try the same in the Sunam at my next visit.More

Food is excellent but service was lack lustre. Added to this, the fire alarm went off repeatedly and the owner refused to call out a engineer to fix it, presumably because it would have cost money. He was still happy to take new reservations/diners despite...the deafening fire alarm sound. A small discount on the bill was given but in no way compensated for the thoroughly disrupted evening. Thanks Sunam - in future, please consider your customers experience ahead of the money going in your pocket. Greed never pays in the long term.More

Visited with friends on a very busy weekend evening, having previously visited numerous times with family. Service is prompt and friendly, the mains are always exceptional. Decor is simple and plain, but very clean, but you are going for great food and service.

Good selection of pickles with the popadoms but my Dhansak missed the mark. The sauce was good and thick with lentils but it had neither the sweetness of pineapple nor he zing of lemon - which is surely the whole point if a dhansak?

Can't fault the food it is brilliant here. You can bring your own booze which is always a bonus or of course buy when you are there. Food is really tasty lots on the menu to choose from and very friendly staff who cant do...more for you apart from one waiter who is constantly fairly shirty but maybe that's just his personality. Would recommend as one of the best places to eat in Kenilworth.More
