Cooking in a traditional way has always been the ethos at the Sanam, and they are immensely proud that their quality food has maintained a fine reputation in the area whether it be ‘dining in or takeaway’.
The Sanam offers a mouth-watering tasty menu of food so whilst enjoying your pre-dinner drink it is good to take your time and try something a little different each time you visit.
For starters there is Chicken Pakora, marinated in a special blend of spices, and Shashli Kebab and Achari Chicken a personal favourite of many.
The main courses included Chicken Balti, Karahi Lamb, Amrit Sari (a fish curry) and Aloo Chana (chickpeas and potato). These are accompanied by the rice of your choice but as a suggestion why not move away from Pillau and enjoy their tasty special fried rice.
Many restaurants can disappoint with their Naan breads but in this area the Sanam shines, with naans freshly made and baked in a traditional charcoal oven using fresh crushed garlic. As they serve your main courses the naans go into the charcoal oven where they take two minutes to cook and arrive piping hot. The peshwari naan is a particular favourite.
There’s everything on the menu you’d expect, but stray onto the ‘chef’s specials’ section if you fancy something a little more exciting that will really excite your taste buds. The sauces at the Sanam are rich in flavour and there’s plenty of substance to them. All their chefs work to the same recipe which ensures consistency of flavour, we all have our favourites and like them to taste the same every time. We are creatures of habit!
It is true that you get what you pay for where food is concerned and the Sanam has that fine balance of quality food at a very reasonable price.
The Sanam have long held their fine reputation, well, they have been there for 24 years and in that time have built up a very loyal clientele who enjoy quality food.
The take-aways are especially popular at the Sanam with very generous portions .
