This was our first visit to The Sagor in Bideford and we were hoping for good things so our review is as follows…Food, only 4 Stars here but honestly that could have been because of the dishes we chose. We opted to order a couple of Sagor's specials but we were a bit underwhelmed when we tried them as we both felt we couldn't identify any fresh individual flavours of the ingredients. Don't get me wrong, the dishes were fine just a bit bland. Next time I will order a standard dish, something like a madras, in order to be able to compare to other restaurants we have been in.Service, this was good. Our server, who I believe was the owner, was lovely and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Drink and food order was taken and in no time our drinks and poppadoms were delivered. The food arrived around 20-25 minutes after ordering which is completely acceptable and gave us time to enjoy our evening. Our hostess was pleasant and attentive and she was a joy to interact with.Atmosphere, The Sagor is a small restaurant in a side street in Bideford. It seemed clean and tidy and relatively well maintained. We have absolutely no negative comments but on a quiet night there was little atmosphere but this cannot be considered the fault of The Sagor.All in all our meal at The Sagor was okay but nothing to feel we have to shout about from the rooftops. Will we be back, probably!

We had a meal from here whilst staying in Bideford. It is a great Indian the food was hot and tasty and order correct. Portions are brilliant the delivery was meant to be 1 hour 30 mins but arrived in 45 mins so impressed with staff honesty. The only thing that cost a star on service was driver couldn't find address and I had to walk down road to meet him as we could not explain area as not from Bideford. But the driver was friendly and the girl on phone, so this is a restaurant worth ordering from or getting a take out best Indian I would say in Bideford.

Saturday night treat! Never been before but has good reviews so why not. Really wanted paneer but not on the menu but I asked and was no problem to add it to a main dish. We had; Sagor mixed starter, veg paratha, paneer dopiaza and chefs special mixed curry, mushroom and pilau rice. Lovely meal and friendly staff. Would recommend to a curry lover or a novice 😋 Good value for money.

The best Indian food in Bideford without a doubt. Reasonably priced too. My only slight complaint is that it's always a bit chilly in there … and if I'm being extra picky, I would like the onions in the relish tray to be cut smaller and it needs more tomatoes and coriander … but still great food……
