I had a great time with my family. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful. The waiters were attentive and I would definitely recommend Sanam to every one. 5/5 would go again.

Heard so much about this place they used to be very famous at one time. We weren't disappointed. Good, delicious food and service. Portions were small compared to other places but can't complain about taste. Very busy.

My husband and I had a meal here after work and both the service and food was excellent. Ithe meat samosas are amazing! Tried numerous restaurants in Rusholme and this is by far the best. Will be visiting again in the near future.
