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.

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
