My boyfriend, our mutual friend and I went to samads on a Friday evening without a booking. We had a couple of minutes wait for a table but it was nothing to complain about really. When we were seated we were asked immediately if we'd like poppadoms and drinks and we were like we would very much like poppadoms and... More

We tried this place for the first time . At first was disappointed that what I had chosen off the take away menu was a fish curry wasn't available when we arrived at the restaurant the waiter told us that the fish hadn't been prepared. So instead he said they would replace the fish with king prawns, which was a... More

Lovely place for a curry, me and the Mrs been here quite a few times. Nicely decorated & good service & well priced. My only criticism is that the table cloth was heavily stained but still worth the 5/5 stars.

Staying at hotel across road who weren't serving meals that night popped over without a booking. The restaurant is upstairs a little dim but has a couple of window tables that looked pleasant. As you enter downstairs there is a damp smell but I presume that is the age of the building. When we arrived there was only one other... More

Thought I'd try Samad for a change and was disappointed with the quality of the takeaway my wife and I had. The chicken tikka jalfrezi was very dry and tasteless and the sauce had an odd texture almost as if it had been reheated. I did collect the curry very early in the evening so perhaps they weren't really ready?... More

Pretty average starters and the main course - both curry and rice - wasn't very nice. Service was friendly and efficient but I'd sum up the place as mediocre

Had a mediocre meal, service is as you would expect. nothing less nothing more. In terms of portion size they were large, but mediocre in taste and majority of it was sauce. price was mediocre at 30£ for two. overall experience was okay. not missing much if we never came back.

Thank Martin M
