I had the best time at this restaurant! I've been to many other Indian restaurants and this is the only one where I had a great experience eating as well as interacting with the staff that worked... there. It is now under new management from what they told me and are doing really well right now. The food is excellent: tasty, flavorful, fresh and you can ask for it to be mild to spicy. The only downside is that they close at 9:30pm everyday!!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

I always come here for the lunch buffet. seriously, $9.99 for the best variety, super fresh food. I pretty much stuff myself everytime. My girlfriend is a vegetarian, and she loves eating here with me, highly recommended.

I've been going to Sultan for a couple of years now and I can't say enough good things. I've had plenty of genuine Indian cuisine in America as well as in India, and this food is as close as you can get. Delicious!

I am a Frequent Flyer at the Sultan and have never been disappointed. I usually partake of the Lunch Buffet. It has some great standards like the Chicken Tikka Masala, Tandoori Chicken, and fragrant Basmati Rice. Most of the items rotate and sometimes new items are tried. But there is always a good mix of dishes varying in color, spices, hotness and texture. Also included are some interesting appetizers, Pani Poori, desserts, ice cream, Naan, and most always a goat or lamb entree as well. There are lots of items to choose from if you are a vegetarian or gluten-free. And the Masala Chai...out of this world!

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for years, and I must say that the current owners/staff are extremely courteous and willing to help you select the perfect dish for your meal. Still, I almost always get the Chicken Tikka Masala with a side of poori and extra tamarind sauce because it is so good (it was primary craving for about 7 months during my second pregnancy). However, I have branched out a few times at our host's/waiter's suggestion without being disappointed. We also have friends and family that enjoy this place. We're friends with a couple of Australian expatriates, and they get take-out from the Sultan because they love the food (and they know Indian food - they have had their far share from around the world, including India). And when my sister and brother-in-law are in town (they're from central PA), they frequently suggest going to the Sultan because they haven't been able to find Indian food as good as the Sultan's in their area. The servings are substantial, and so I suggest taking the leftovers home for a fantastic midnight snack or for lunch the next day.

These people spoiled us. My wife and I used to eat at the Palace of Asia in Fort Washington, and got hooked on their Chicken Tikka Masala. They sold their business there and the food and service quality dropped pretty dramatically afterwards. \r\rThen, the wife and I took a trip to London a few years ago, and looked forward to trying their Indian Food. I mean... it's supposed to be pretty good in London, isn't it? Okay, sure. It was GOOD, but not as good as what I could find at home. Same thing in Edinburgh. A wide variety of tastes in the several places we tried in the UK, but nothing was as good as what we were used to.\r\rSeveral years later, we discovered that those previous owners of Palace of Asia bought Sultan in North Wales. I now have my favorite dinner again!\r\rNow, we eat there almost every week and are NEVER disappointed. There is a variance in the recipes from night to night, but everything can be spiced to order. The staff are always accommodating and always friendly. They treat us like family. Bring some wine! Semi-dry Riesling goes well with their food.\r\rTry their Gulub Jamun and Masala Tea for dessert. Go home stuffed!

Excellent, I can't say anymore, very fresh food, wonderful flavors via what I can only call perfect seasoning and preparation. The presentation was excellent and the decedent deserts topped off a wonderful meal. I must also mention that the outstanding service and knowledge of the waiter only added to an already wonderful evening

This little gem is tucked inside of an unassuming strip mall on Welsh Rd. Each dish from the chicken makhni to the rogan josh has been tenderly prepared to seduce your palettes! I came here once for dinner and another time for their lunch buffet. I was very surprised to see their large selection of dishes in their buffet (I wasn't expecting this in the suburbs). You MUST try their homemade kulfi! \r\rTHE LAST REVIEW WAS A BIT EXTREME\rMUST BE A HATER

Hi...This week we went to Sultan,,,Actually it was my choice my friend didnt wanted to go there since we already had 3 worst experince with sultan food.But badly craving for Indian food we went to sultan...it was buffet ,,,the Naan most probably is of my auntys age...The sambar of my grandfathers age,,,If you are an Indian please dont go to Sultan expecting good food,,its a criminal waste of money...And I even saw that they had the review saying best restaurant from city search..the very moment I decided I will write this,,,All the good reviews should be of Sultan owner..The food is stale..and all the veg and nonveg food had the same gravy,,,everything looked and taste alike....the only good one was the paneer masala..which was running out since nobody touched anyother dishes...None of the food were fresh ,,,u will run if you had the pudding or halwa...The sambar was stale...gone!!!! since sambar wont last for more than 2days...\rAgain after reading my review if you want to try sultan....hahaa.....people study only from experince...Go waste your money,,,,\r\rAnd if you are the owner of sultan.I have something to tell you..Its such a nice location for business,,,,people come once and if you dont serve them good food they wont come back..initially it might be a loss for you if you start giving people fresh food..but please do so and build your reputation...else the restaurant wont last for long!!!!and please change the cook ..keep someone who knows and is experinced to cook Indian food...

I can't speak for their meat dishes, but their vegetarian dishes are fantastic. The lentils are excellent, as is the saag paneer and the paneer masala. Their eggplant is also incredible. Yum!\r\rThe customer service was friendly, and the service prompt. The prices are only reasonable, not great, but I don't expect anything else from a suburbial ethnic restaurant. We'll gladly make the trip to visit Sultan as it is the best Indian in our area. \r\r4 1/2 stars. For five stars, go to New York. :)

The last review was a bit extreme. I have had Indian food all over-including India---and Indian food is usually expensive. (EVERYTHING IS EXPENSIVE NOWADAYS) I thought the food was very good and the service very friendly. I usually get it to go. Moving outside the city there is a dearth of good restaurants here--and the lack of heat/spice at most ethnic restaurants is pitiful. This place is good and will spice it the way you like.\ri work for Merck and we order takeouts all the time and never had any problems \rKEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

I had order a few takeaway items. On reaching there, looking at the bill I asked the waiter to confirm it since last week (exactly 7 days earlier) I had paid 25% less for the same things. Waiter went upto the manager (Horrible owner of the Palace of Asia restaurant from Fort Washington) and talked. This guy came up to me and started shouting how dare I ask him the price and difference between last time and this time. Costs went up and all. I said I asked him to find out why the cost is different which you could have come and explained to me not shout at me. He had no reaction and just turned and walked off. Not even a SORRY. Not getting any of mine or my friends business again. This is the most horrible restaurant manager I must have ever talked to. The customer service is downright poor even if the food is better than the last owner. Dining is about the experience & with a manager like this I am never setting foot in there again.

This restaurant is by far the best Indian food me and my husband have found in all of PA. The service is great and the food keeps us coming back. We drive over an hour to get to this restaurant and it is well worth the drive.

I have always enjoyed Indian cuisine. I have been to the restaurant many times. However, I have not been to the restaurant in over a year because I felt the quality of food and service was lacking. When I heard the restaurant was under new ownership/management I thought I would give the restaurant another try. I am happy I did. The service was great and the food was outstanding. The atmosphere was great. My friends and I enjoyed ourselves. I encourage those of you who were disappointed in the past to give them another try.\r\rSatwant and Reena are very friendly
