The Sultan of Lancaster

Lancashire, England

Indian restaurant

A stunning Indian restaurant inside a converted church. The original church architecture has been overlaid (sympathetically) with Muslim motifs.

The food is always high quality, and the waiters are only too happy to advise on vegetarian and vegan options. Check on the breads - some of their chefs make them with yoghurt, some don't.

They also have a cafe and art gallery downstairs.

We've gone back to the Sultan many times, and the food is always great (though it can be a little on the oily side). If you're not sure what to try, get the vegetarian thali (they're happy to make sure that it's vegan), though be careful with the bread, it may contain yoghurt. Many of the starters are vegan; I'd recommend the vegetable patra. If you get the poppadoms and dips, make sure you ask them to miss out the raita if you don't eat yoghurt.

As they're Muslim, there's no alcohol, but when they serve the Sultan Fruit Cocktail and the Lemon Sherbet, you don't need wine.

If walking, from the town centre, walk South along Penny Street (oneof the pedestrianised streets), and turn left onto Brock street at Marks and Spencers. If driving, go around the ring road until you're heading North (you'll be on King Street at this point), and take a right turn at the traffic lights next to the indoor market and Littlewoods shop (where most of the buses turn) - You'll now be on Common Garden Street, which becomes Brock Street half way down. There's some parking there, but not much.
