“Best in Kenilworth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Have been visiting the Sunam for over 15 years and it never fails to impress with friendly service and generous portions of excellent food.

Prices are low and although licenced, you can 'bring your own' wine/beer. Chefs are happy to deviate from the menu, which extends the already comprehensive menu further. Vegetarians are well catered for.

The Sunam has recently been extended via the acquisition of a neighbouring property. Definitely still need to book a table at weekends though.

As well as being ideal for couples and small groups, the Sunam is great for famlly get-togethers and parties. We have held many celebrations there over the years as well as regular visits for a mid-week fix.

Staff at the Sunam are great but Mott remains our favourite.

“Our favourite Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Love their currys, my favourite is Lamb Sag Gosht. My husband loves their Chicken tikka masala. The naans, rice, poppadoms and samosas are tasty too. And good value for money too.

“Favourite Indian food in Kenilworth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

I've been coming to Sunam since 2008ish when I started at Warwick university. We have been regular customers the past few years and always get excellent service. Occasionally the service suffers when they are exceptionally busy. The food is amazing and very good value. The people are lovely.

The sunam since it has been extended has become a superb restaurant. Top quality food at very reasonable price. Ability to take your own wine a real bonus

“Love this place so I always make sure I come back even though I have moved.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

I have been going to the Sunam for the past 15 years.Its had its ups and downs,mainly due to being soooo busy but they have now extended .
I have eaten in many Balti houses and this is by far the best authentic food I have tasted. So good in fact that each time i go back to visit family i have to go and while there enjoying my balti garlic chicken with extra chillis (which is fantastic) I ask them to come and open a restaurant in Ludlow, I can but hope. I can also recommend the sizzling fish amongst others and the keema nans have a good amount of meat inside-not like some of the ones that look like they have been coloured inside with a marker pen !
If you like a good traditional curry in a balti dish and not on a posh white plate then this is the place for you. Bring your own booze too...what more can you ask for?
