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.

we have been eating at this restaurant for the best part of 20 years and we have never had a bad experience. the food is delicious and the service is great, the staff go out of their way to make sure your meal is as you like it, spicy or mild, with or without ghee, extra onions, you name it...

Having lived in whitley bay for over a decade and not eaten at many local restaurants we decided to give this a go. On a Sunday night we strolled in about 930pm. The restaurant is tired looking there are stains on the carpet and on the walls but we were here for the food not the wallpaper. The staff were... More

Tried this restaurant on the recommendation of a member of staff at the hotel where we were staying. Excellent food but TOTALLY overpriced! Come on ... please - just cos us Brits love curry there's no need to rip us off! Having got that off my chest .... the Panir Jalfrezi was wonderful. Service could have been a bit more... More

We decided to try a different indian restaurant for a change and opted for one we had visited frequently over a decade ago.. It seemed okay until we noticed what we assume were splashes of food/drink on the walls at the end of our table. The waiter was pre occupied and didnt bring the plates for a good 5 minutes... More

Good service, bland food. The Chicken Makhani (?) was uninspired - I could make better myself. There's no way they can compete with the new place next door. Even though their food sucks too!
