Went for the special. It was good value but rather expensive if you go on non special nights. However the food and service were excellent. Staff eager to please and a nice atmosphere.

We are regular diners at this smart Indian/Bengali restaurant at the north end of Birtley, less than half a mile from the A1M and the Angel. The choice and taste of the food is always excellent, all of the staff are really friendly and helpful but not intrusive, and the meals, whilst not cheap, are good value. Even the toilets... More

Usually love this place - food, service and surroundings very good indeed, lovely staff. However the last two meals have been really quite poor - chicken dishes almost devoid of chicken and sauce very runny, naan bread very dry. If it wasn't for the rice and onion bhaji would have gone hungry. Poppadoms always good - but not exactly difficult... More

Visited this restaurant with friends who live in the North East. The restaurant was very clean, service first class, Islam really looked after us. The food was good and plentiful. What a shame that we were the only customers on the Monday evening. Islam ensured we had everything we needed but did not hover which can be so off putting.... More

We eat at Sunarga about 10 times a year because it is by far the best Indian/Bengali restaurant in the area. There is a superb choice on the menu, the beers are well kept, and whilst it is not the cheapest restaurant, it is certainly the best. On Thursdays and Sundays there are fixed price menus. Take-aways are also available... More

We were told of this restaurant about three years ago by our son who had previously visited with his wife. We are now regulars to Sunarga and it is simply the best Indian restaurant we have been to. The restaurant is very clean, food is always lovely, the staff are friendly and the service is excellent. It is a little... More

We stayed in Birtley and we visited this restaurant based on reviews. It was a Friday night and we visited this restaurant and we were only couple in there however there were a lot of takeaway orders. We felt it was quite expensive in relationship to the area/restaurant. The food was nice, however not the best Indian I have ever... More
