Great tasting Indian food at a reasonable price. The food is noticeably nicer when eating in the restaurant rather than when delivered. Staff are fantastic.

We ordered a takeaway from Sanam last friday and it was probably the worst we have ever had from anywhere. Order was wrong to start. We ordered egg fried rice and go two fried rices. We also ordered two chicken tikka mains and they both...came with no salad / mint sauce. While they did send someone out with the missing bits, the chicken was so dry it was hard to physically swallow. The rice, while it looked nice, was tasteless. The rogan joh main looked like some no descript curry that was some tinned tomatoes thrown into it. The mint sauces was also pretty weird, thick and or some reason yellow in colours Considering the mistake with the order I would have expected a free bag of chips or a few poppadums. Truly awful experience.More

Rare night off and I just fancied an Indian takeaway and a chill... how disappointed are we. The Mint sauce is a yellow flavourless sauce and both our mains taste just like tinned tomatoes with some herbs along with a BIT of chicken chucked in......not for us, we ordered different dishes so we could have a bit of each others and dip the masala chips in which taste nothing like masala but only difference between our mains is mine had 3 half tomatoes and half an onion in... Good job we have a sence of humour, meal is in the bin and we are sharing the naan insteadMore

great curry as usual but was underwhelmed with the amount of chicken in both of our take away curry’s. Up until recently all curries had decent sized chunks But have noticed the chicken being rationed in the last few take always .it’s that sort of...thing that makes you think about going elsewhere. It is a reasonably expensive takeaway but the quality of the curries make it worth it.More

Everything you want from a Balti house. Always a great welcome and service. Great atmosphere on a Friday and Saturday night. But every table always goes quiet when the food arrives, because it's that good. So much to recommend, especially the tandoori chicken, Sanam Biryani,...Dansak and family Naan. Take your own booze too. Eat in or take away - I won't go anywhere elseMore

I used to live in Cannock although now live on the south coast. Whenever I’m back I always enjoy visiting the Sanam, delicious food, generously portioned, everything very reasonable. Highly recommended

We have visited the Sanam for twenty five years. Last visit tonight. Decore now very bright. No table cloths now. Food ok but nothing to shout about now. Other customers were very rowdy and eary doors at 8pm, long finished meals and carried on drinking...glasses smashed. One of the party was sick at the table. Manager did not intervene. We paid bill at the desk and left sharpish as we felt very uncomfortable. Shame, but would not visit again and would no longer reccomend this place to anyone.More

We were really excited to see vegan menu and ordered a few options. So disappointed when they arrived, bland and looked the same despite different dishes. Threw most of it away and will not be using again.

We ordered for 5 of us as we fancied a change. The Veg Biriani sauce was tomatoey and watery and tasteless. The rice looked amazing but had no taste. Same with the dopiaza and madras. Same tomato flavoured watery sauce. Just awful. Gutted.

Have had takeways from here before and they were ok but last nights was awful. We ordered half portions of both our dishes. All were cold and my husbands contained just three small pieces of chicken. Mine was larger but the chicken was tough and...the naan bread was totally insipid. Most of it ended in the bin. Won't be using it again.More
