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.

We have been going to Sanam off & on for over 30 years, more recently for the set lunch menu. Over that past time, we have always enjoyed our experience there & never came away hungry. Last night we went for dinner there with friends...& our findings were a bit different from the past, the food was of very good quality 9 out of 10, the restaurant ambiance was very good 9 out of 10, but unfortunately, the portion size was a bit on the small side! so only 6 out of 10 for portion size. So we will probably not return for the dinner menu but may still return for the set lunch menu.More

Had great meals here in the past but ordered a takeaway this evening and it was a bit disappointing. £50 felt steep for what we got. The butter chicken honestly tastes exactly like heinz tomato soup with some chili! It was also chicken tikka meat.So...although not unpleasant it was nothing like a butter chicken. My partner's lamb korma was also not like a korma, no coconut flavour. I also found the pakora too cardamom-y but that could be personal preference. The nans were decent but I do think the ones we had eating in in the past were nicer, fresher. Unfortunately probably won't be back.More

Called here on Tuesday evening. It was a good job I arrived when I did because very soon the tables were filled. On speaking to the owner after the meal , he explained that they do at least 100 covers on a weekday . My...meal consisted of , 2 poppadoms with onions & chutney. 2 Fantastic Onion Bhaji with side salad. A moist very very flavoursome Chicken Jalfezi with Pilu rice . + 1 Chapati. Washed down with a pint of Cobra. Everything was well presented and tasted spot on . The staff all were a credit to themselves and the restaurant. I highly recommend the SANAM.More

Disappointing visit. Whole place was smelling of B.O and so was our waiter, not what you’d expect at the beginning of a dinner shift. No atmosphere at all, and felt very awkward. New renovation is beautiful, but seems the charm has gone. I also noticed...when I left that at the back of my top there was curry sauce stains all over the back and sides of me. Obviously from a dirty seating area as it did not match what I had eaten. Used to enjoy coming here but after this visit I can safely say I won’t be back. ☹️More

I have frequented this restaurant for nearly 30 years and since the refurbishment it has changed for the worse. Menu is much smaller with many old favourites gone and the portions are smaller with prices up. How you can justify £6 for a starter with...3 tiny pieces of chicken is beyond me. The quality of food is excellent don't get me wrong but it's no longer the great experience it once was. Overpriced. I won't be back for a while.More

Reading the reviews I thought I’d stumbled across a great curry house but was very disappointed in the menu and the food itself. We should’ve listened to our taxi driver going, he didn’t recommend.
