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

Early Saturday evening - efficient service, beautiful napkins in spite of foul weather outside, music in the background which was quiet enough to talk over, generally excellent. 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

This place has some pretty good reviews so thought I would give it a try for a Saturday night takeaway, big mistake, I had the 'house special' my wife had a Jalfrezi, both ended up in the bin, very bland at best, certainly very disappointing...May be a one off but be aware!

Me and a friend popped in here late on a Tuesday evening. We didn't arrive till around 8:45pm but the staff were still more than happy to accommodate us! Was a quiet evening in the restaurant but the standards were the same as they've always been, very high! I've been here on a few previous occasions and haven't had a... More
