We visited Sammy's as a group of thirteen. It's a nicely turned out curry house, perhaps a cut above the average in the area. Even the loos look freshly installed and spotlessly clean. There's a good choice of food. The list is a lot shorter than most curry restaurants, but that's no bad thing. My wife and I shared a... More

We were recommended this restaurant, after moving into the area. The staff were friendly, service efficient and food acceptable, we are fussy about our Indian food, three out of four of us enjoyed our food. The manager/owner was Very Friendly, perhaps a little too much if you are an introvert, like myself. An enjoyable evening though.

We wanted a good curry and our friends had been here before and were pleased to go back. Its been established a long time and the owner is about greeting customers and talking to diners.

i love Sammy's always go and try different things on the menu. it's not has cheap as other restaurants but its well worth spending that little bit more. Sammy's doesn't sell alcohol so its great that you can bring your own but you can't bring your own soft drinks.

First of all the food is very average! Comparing to nearby restaurants Sammy's is expensive!! Main reason for this review is because of the way I have seen Sammy treat his waiters, very rudely especially at busy times! Not only this I have met an ex-Waiter who was a lovely young boy aged between 17-21. Who mentioned the TIP is... More

This was a first time visit. Staff friendly and good service. But sorry to say we thought the food was only average compared to other restaurants we've been to. Not for us sorry to say even though it does seem to have it's regular.

Always think the good is great but the service is poor and the waiters are just miserable and frankly rude at times. Lovely downstairs, freezing downstairs.
