“Excellent food and service, why isn't it busier?”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I have been coming here regularly over the last year or so. One of the best curry houses I've been to as the food is cooked fresh. It always seems to do more in takeaways than restaurant meals which always surprises me as the service is second to none; polite, friendly and not too over the top,
If you are regularly order takeaway from here you must visit for a different food experience.

“Lovely home delivery meals”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

I regularly order meals by telephone for home delivery as quite frankly I do not particularly like the restaurant atmosphere (which is a bit stark) or the area in which the restaurant is located. The home delivery meals, as in the restaurant, are really excellent and the best I have tasted. They will provide complimentary popadoms and all of the sauces, salads etc that you would normally expect in the restaurant itself. The prices are very reasonable, the food is usually delivered within the hour, it is well packed and keeps hot. I can easily well recommend the home deliveries.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

The best curry I've ever had (including Mumtaz) after 30 plus years of eating Curries around Bradford and Leeds. Friendly staff, great decor, clean and has a licence too! Lots of Asian customers too which says it all about good quality

“Regular visitors”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

Positives.....Food excellent. Cooked to your taste. There is a la carte or eat as much as you like from smaller choice. You can indicate strength of spiciness.
Even if we occasionally go elsewhere, we use Saims as the yardstick for comparison, and nowhere else matches Saims for the flavour, freshness and quality of the food.

Staff friendly. If owner and son around, they always greet you. You always feel welcome.

Not negatives but could make changes...
Its never full when we call in. This always seems such a shame, and maybe cos it looks more of a cafe than a restaurant.

So...

Maybe some lamps to create atmosphere, which would soften the lighting.

And tablecloths to look more welcoming and lessen the "cafe" look. These two things are cheap enough to do

This would put it on a par with other local eateries. As there is a lot of competition out there.

Please try Saims. The food is fab

“Fantastic food you have to try it”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

The service was friendly and efficient, the food was delicious and cooked freshly just how we wanted it we couldn't find fault at all just wish there had been a little more atmosphere. We will definately be going back there again without hesitation.
