After a few months of waiting, we finally booked our table and I have to say, from the informal yet attentive service to the amazing food, this was a night out to remember. The food was so flavoursome, spices so complex yet exquisitely well balanced; meat, fish or vegetarian options cooked to perfection that I would have happily ordered it... More

not your traditional UK curry restaurant , unlikely to find anything you would get in a normal restaurant but quite pricey for what you get . Pushing £8 for a starter and £14 for a main + another £4 for rice + £2 for chapatti. Whilst the food was tastey it was a bit on the hot side and not... More

Sanmini's is an unusual restaurant in that it only has five tables. It is housed in a private property and is a family business. We booked for a Saturday evening and it was the first time we had visited. We arrived and were greeted. Due to being early, we sat on the sofa and were asked if we would like... More

Recommended by a friend so thought I would give it a go. Nice welcome from the owners son and an explanation of how it opened (his mums dream to cook good quality authentic food). I would say she has done it, food was excellent and that little bit different from the normal Indian fair. Service can be a little slow... More

Nothing like you expect if you think you are going for an Indian meal. This is true Indian cuisine (no chiken tikka masla here), and thoughly worth the visit. We didn't know the dishes, so took advise from the owner. Exceptional food. Thank you.
