I go here once every 3 month because the food is outstanding however the service and restaurant itself doesn't match. The place needs a lick of paint and requires some new decor and they need to hire more staff. The food takes a while to come and takes even longer to order because generally only one guy takes the order... More

Ate here one evening whilst staying at the Thistle for business. Myself and a collague arrived here about 9pm on a week night and we were the only people there. The food was ok, the service was ok, and the price was… ok. So overall, nothing outstanding but equally nothing disappointing.

This is a lovely little restaurant that we've eaten at many times. Jamal is a character & employs staff but then insists on doing most of the work himself. The sag paneer (not usually on menu but just ask) is superb & there is a wide range of dishes ranging from a lovely Korma right up the spice rating. He'll... More

I have been a regular customer of Jamals for over 12 years. His food is exceptional, I have yet to find any better. However, service is something else. I have often been turned away because they are 'too busy', serving only a few tables or told to 'wait' but you can't have drinks, poppadoms or menus while you wait, you... More

Food prepared to your taste by the owner of the restaurant, where else would you find that. If you are in a hurry, it is the wrong place, try a fast food chain. Probably the best Indian restaurant in Middlesbrough and much better than the food served in Bradford.

Please don't believe people who visit once, don't even sample the food and leave without even ordering. I have eaten here for so many years and the food is great. Well seasoned and perfectly spiced. Jamal is a great chef. If the restaurant is busy, you may have to wait a little while but hey if you want fast food... More

Recently visited, waited 10 minutes before being offered a drink. Had to ask to order poppadums. Waited 15 minutes after that for 2 drinks. No poppadoms arrived. Another waiter attended the table to take my order to which I politely asked how long he meal would take as we had cinema tickets. To which the reply was screamed at me... More

The personal touch from Mr Jamal and his pleasant staff makes the evening. A perfectly cooked meal, Be prepared he doesn't serve fast food, just quality food as fast as he can. First class, many thanks!

Jamal's Middlesbrough- I went with a few work colleagues and although we were late the staff were ever so friendly. Food was reasonably priced but most importantly it was delicious! One of my colleagues asked for something that wasn't on the menu and the chef was more than happy to do it. I will definitely be returning and I have... More
