Lovely food and lots of choice! Staff are friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is pleasant. We were a group of 7 and enjoyed all of the meals. We did not have to wait long for the food either!

Half way through the meal my partner found quite a long thick black hair amongst his beef..... Thankfully it was not a curly one!! We reported this to the waiter, who offered to bring another curry, unfortunately... More

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.

The service is second to none with a friendly and dedicated staff team who instantly make you feel at home and go above and beyond to ensure a fine dining experience.... More

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
