Great all rounder, totally outshines the Indians in Dodworth, I wouldn't go anywhere else! Service with a smile and excellent quality food - can anyone ask for more?

I have been as a small group and a much larger group ( 30) but the food and the service remains the same, perfect. A dazzling range of dishes on the menu and any special requests always catered for. The welcome is always very warm with plenty of smiles, and very often small 'extras' brought to the table while the... More

We were visiting the area and staying at the Ibis Styles which is literally a 4 minute drive away. Found recommendations for Alams Lounge on trip advisor so we booked a table. What a lovely place! The food was delicious! Best Indian meal we have had for a very long time! One (very) minor criticism would be that the potatoes... More

Tried the restaurant a couple months earlier for a takeaway which we enjoyed so went for the sit in option and were very pleased. Food was great and the BYO booze was a real positive. Recommended.

Let me cut straight to the chase and begin this review by stating that Alam's Lounge is the best curry house in Barnsley. For years, the establishment has been viewed by me and the boyz as somewhat of a budget option for a night on the curry; due largely to the BYO booze feature of the dining experience. Many a...

'Strong and bold' are likely the two words that come to mind when you see the title of the review. Best in Barnsley? Huge statement! Yet so true. The evening began with stopping at a local off license to buy alcoholic beverages to take, as this is permitted (namely merlot and cobra were purchased, naturally to compliment the banquet to...

Gorgeous food and wonderful waiting staff who knew how to perfectly strike that delicate balance between friendly & helpful and overbearing! We had a lovely evening and will definitely be back. Properly spicey, absolutely delicious. My husband is a meat eater & I'm veggie - they was plenty of choice for both of us. Would recommend.
