Had a lovely meal although the surroundings were a little tired. Service was fine, didn't feel rushed. Its was quite a busy restaurant which is always a good sign when you don't know the area.

Fantastic meal from beginning to end. We started with tandoori kebab and onion bhaji - both looked and tasted great. Main courses were lamb special ghost - wonderful flavours, perfectly tender lamb, and a king prawn dish (can't remember what exactly) which was equally delicious, 5 HUGE and tasty prawns. Spinach bhaji side and the naan breads were brilliant too.... More

Incredibly good service delicious cuisine, excellent value and a great choice. They even do a veggie Quorn curry - amazing. And they are very happy to give you a doggy bag. Perfect in every way. Go! You won't be disappointed. Best curry and service in Whitley Bay.

Very good Indian meals with really superb service. Was a little quieter than some nearby Indians however the food and service was really good. Highly recommended. Décor not too fashionable which is a shame as this place deserves to be visited by more people.
