Sultan in N. Wales

A local paper had a restaurant review on the Indian restaurant in N. Wales near Lansdale, called Sultan.

What caught my eye was the reviewer's remark that there was new management/owners, a family that had previously owned the Palace of Asia in Fort Washington.

According to the reviewer, the interior has been redone, featuring brighter colors, tables clothed in pleasantly colored linens, and other features.

The reviewer was there for dinner and enjoyed most of the full course dinners he and his entourage had.

I was there twice, many years ago. The most recent time I visited for their lunch buffet which looked modest but aggreable.

The reviewer gave the restaurant 3 1/2 stars out of 5 and rated his experience in words as "very good." He commented that the shrimp vindaloo could have had more shrimp and been more tender, and that the various sauces of other dishes were very good.

My guess is that the area the restaurant is in, may not have the demand for a lunch buffet, and when that is the case, there is normally a cut back in the variety of dishes offered. The last time I was there was on a Saturday, and even on that day, the variety of dishes was what you would see on a normal weekday in the Indian restaurants in the Wayne/King of Prussia/Malvern area.
