We really enjoyed Sartaj during our 6 month stay in Harrogate. The food was aways very good. The cheese naan could not be beat! But the one odd thing about dining at this restaurant (even on the weekend evenings) is that we were usually the only ones there. Very strange indeed. We saw several people getting take away though which was encouraging. I can honestly understand why nobody dined in though... the manager burned VERY strong incense that gave me headaches, the severs were a bit too attentive and smothering since they were probably bored. Once we discovered Jinnah just across the road we were hooked. Jinnah blended both GREAT indian food and a very pleasant and relaxing ambiance. I always joked with my husband that we should order some takeaway cheese naan from Sartaj and then head over to Jinnah for the rest :)

We often frequent Sartaj on a Sunday evening. We always receive a warm welcome. The food is great. Recommend the Sartaj special to share to start (it's huge!) the lamb shaslik for mains is delicious.

The food here was really tasty and fresh.
The waiters were very kind and helpful without being over bearing.
Wide variety of food available and upon request the waiters were very happy to give their advice.
As we are non alcohol drinkers we found the soft drinks very reasonably priced.
Overall brilliant food, great service and very good value!

Visited here on Easter Saturday. It was quiet and that was a shame because this place is very good. I had the chicken methi while my wife had her usual order of chicken tikka. Both meals tasted great. Service was friendly but not intrusive, was very pleasantly surprised when the bill arrived. Really good value for money. We will return when we next visit harrogate.

Have been a regular visitor to this restaurant since its opening. I am delighted to see that at long last it is getting the trade it so well deserves. The staff and food are excellent. It offers very good value for money. They have a set menu which fantastic value but even if you eat a la carte it is still excellent value. The drinks are also very well priced. The staff are always courteous without being intrusive and will explain if you need to know anything etc. Give it a try you wont be disappointed.
