Early Mother's Day meal. Went with my family tonight, still the same inside from earlier visits in the past. We had booked a table before hand so we got a decent round table for six. The menu has a variety of choices, we had ordered sheek kebabs, garlic lime wings and shami kebabs for starters they were ok. For mains... More

I have been coming here for many years and have never had any issues, until recently on two instances. I ordered a chicken tikka masala and specifically asked for it to be mild because I cannot handle hot food. As I asked for this the waiter referred to it as 'a gora curry'.

Its a decent place but service and food have gone down over the years... still worth a visit.. Good venue upstairs if youre having a party/wedding/event and this is highly recommended.

I have been to Sanam in Cheetham Hill a number of times - Their sweet counter is not bad... but the part that serves their other food like curries, burgers and kebabs is the biggest let down Only recently did I place an order and asked them to make the curries very mild as we do not like too many...

Very clean. Polite and professional staff. Excellent quality fresh food and customer service. We had mixed grill platter, lamb karahi, chips and nan bread. The owner was present and I complimented the immensely good quality of the rasmalai dessert. He said this has been the restaurant speciality for 50 years, my reply was I hope to live another 50 years... More

The food is very tasty I would recommend the mixed grill. There was a fairly longish wait which I have noted other reviewers have complained about but food is quality and that is the main thing.
