I ordered a takeaway for 4 people at 7.15pm,double checking it would be ready at 8pm for collection. I arrived at 8pm and was told the debit card machine was broken. So I went to get cash, paid and then waited until 8.25pm. The lady said the machine had been broken since Wednesday, so why didn't they tell me this... More

After the Great North Run my wife and I decided to treat the family to a curry takeaway from the Kismet. I made the order over the phone and payed for it to be delivered. I double checked with the waiter that he had taken down or choices. He told me he had and proceeded to read back to me... More

Having gone with other Indian takeaway services near Kismet - most notably the one next door- we decided to believe their promotional material and give them a go. We will not do it again. Our chicken tikka main did not come with salad or yoghurt dressing and all portions were small when compared with competitors. The most significant issue however... More

Until the Shikara opened next door. But actually, I think the food at the Kismet is potentially better.

We have used this restaurant for the last ten years and have been very happy with the delicious food and cheerful and friendly service but recently the food has gone sharply down hill. We ate here a couple of weeks ago and it was empty and the food was particularly unspectacular with very bland flavours. Tonight we decided to order... More

We were made very welcome and had a lovely meal in a comfortable restaurant with excellent service. I cannot find anything to complain about. The whole experience was a pleasure.

My husband and I have visited this establishment before and raved about it. However as we only visit Whitley Bay twice a year perhaps it has changed hands?
