Myself and a couple of friends from school booked a table at 'Cookson Spice' one week in advance, which was fortunate, because in all honesty Chester le Street's finest Curry emporium was pretty well packed out with appreciative Curry fans! Andrew had the Beef Jalfrezi, with plain Pilaw rice, and Keema Nan bread, followed by Toffee Ice Cream. Steve had... More

Great food with many dishes not found in lots of curry houses, with crab, fish and duck on the menu. Great quality, unobtrusive friendly service and reasonable pricing. Restaurant is a little jewel well hidden away, will definitely return.

Been a few times now and the food is amazing. Honestly the best Asian food I have ever tasted. Highly recommended. The staff can't do enough and very friendly.

We were looking for a decent Indian restaurant and were recommended here. It certainly was a gorgeous meal. Almost like nothing that we have had before. The only downfall was the distance it was from the high street, so we had to get a taxi from chester le street centre. The restaurant more than happily rang a taxi for us... More

Visit to the restaurant was done following a friends recommendation. I traveled in India on many occasions so was fully aware of authentic food from most of the major cities.This was not too bad considering it was mainly Bangladesh type food.Good portions and good value. Only two comments, the music was too loud to carry out conversation and the time... More

Now we get to the food. £52 for 4 main courses with soft drinks. Regardless of price, it's some of the best Indian food anywhere (or perhaps it's just the balance of flavours... More

We live in Chester le Street and this restaurant is 10 minutes walk from our home. Even if it wasn't, we would make a special journey to come here. The food is always well cooked and beautifully flavoured. The staff are helpful without exception and the restaurant itself is well laid out with a nice atmosphere. The special offer menu... More
