Visited dabbawal on a thursday night. The place was busy. From the start the staff are very friendly and pleasant. We were a party of 6 and were shown to our table. The table was clearly a table for 4 people but we were squeezed onto it. The table next to us was clearly no bigger than for two people... More

We selected a lot of items to try from the tapas menu and every one was delicious. My only improvement suggestion would be to not serve every one with the same little token salad. Just... More

Been twice before going to the theatre/cinema. Food is very good, service was slow first time round but ok the second time. the meal deal if you are sat before 630 is really good value, portions are a good size and taste delicious. Recommended if you are in Newcastle and looking for an early bite

I must say I enjoyed my experience here and I'm glad because I'd fancied it for a while and had read good things. The food here was very good and quite reasonably priced! I had the sheesh kebab and chicken starter followed by the naga chilli main with plain rice and garlic naan. I couldn't fault it. Tasty, spicy, very... More
