Called last night witha a friend after attending Sedgefield races We had the usual poppadoms and pickles to start and followed this with a chicken jaipur (not certain about the spelling) which had loads of peppers and onions. and a prawn dopiaza. Both were really well flavoured and not too spicy. What stood out about this visit was the attentive... More

We had a fab meal here. Food was delicious, waiters were very attentive & service good. It was very busy too which was a good sign. It was recommended to us & we will definitely try again when we are up this way. Thank you Akbar Dynasty.

I had a lamb Dhansak and the meat was very tender, my wife had a chicken something or other and that was beautiful and full... More

We don't eat Indian food that often. We went to this restaurant on a recommendation and what a treat. Booking early is to be advised as it is very popular. The reason was obvious right from entering the restaurant. Very attentive staff. Good decor to the two eating areas. Excellent menu choice with "heat" value for each dish. The food... More

After much persuasion finally convinced my hubby to try this place. Dont be put off by the random location or mediocre building and car park. As soon as we entered we were greeted by fabulously attentive staff. This service continued throughout our meal . The food was fantastic and the choice tremendous. I had the tandoori trout to start and... More

We decided to try this restaurant on recommendations of friends who had been there. We had been passed it numerous times, during the day I might add, and often wondered if anyone ever went as it was at the side of an old, unused petrol station. However at night it is totally different. The carpark was full. The food was... More
