Tasty food good ( patient) staff

Went with friends after drinks on Wed night. I'm not very big fun of spicy food so waiter was polite enough to explain my choices. I must admit I did enjoy every single recommendation and found the value for money excellent. Next table was a group of drunk people but still waiter was very polite... read more

My husband and I turned up around 11pm on a Saturday, without having booked a table, and we were received with a smile and promptly seated. Service was attentive but not too much on your face. Food was served quickly and it was overall very tasty. Price was adequate to the food quality. We would definitely come back if we... More

Arrived I'm Newcastle at 11pm (on a Wednesday) after a long drive. Most places we came across where either shut or on the verge, until we came across Rani. The waiter was friendly and attentive, explaining all the dishes and matching them to our western palettes. The place had just one other table of guests and they at no point... More

Having had a very enjoyable evening in Newcastle with my daughter we decided to round it off with a curry. It was the worst Indian meal we have experienced!

Came for the early evening menu. Terrific value and no compromise on portion size or flavour. Best jalfrezi in a long time! Decent house wine. Will definitely revisit.

This restaurant is tucked away in the old part of the quayside directly under the Tyne bridge, great service and food is served here. They also stay open late so there is no need to rush to get a table. It is ideally located close to all the quayside bars.

Been here once before and my food was at best 'poor'. Working in this beautiful City again last night I decided to give them a second chance - food was awful and so was the service (or lack of). I complained that the chicken was dry and tasted funny, I'd ordered a medium heat dish yet it was pathetically HOT... More

Thank you for your review Gary. We value customer feedback greatly however your review seems to be slightly exaggerated. I can remember you clearly as you were the only one who complained after ordering the daal saag. You asked for us to replace your meal after demolishing the whole thing and leaving one piece of chicken "which was too hot"... More

Large choice of food. Ordered sheek kebab starter which wasn't the best, but the main course was very enjoyable. Thought the starters were a little expensive but otherwise pretty good
