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.

There was a very ignorant waiter who jus shrugged and... More
