Still a good night out after all these years

Visited on a busy Friday night with two friends. Revived a friendly warm welcome, and attentive, but not intrusive, service throughout the night. It was busy and had a fun atmosphere. We couldn't fault any of our courses, starts were great, just the right size. The mains were excellent. We... read more

Went to this resteraunt on 18/01/16 and it was awful. Have been years before and thoroughly enjoyed it but not this time. Even though it was empty the service was very slow and they couldn't even get the order correct. Food only warm and tasteless Definitely never return to this place again as too many others to choose from

Nice place and food was good. Service with a smile and a welcome .One of the smarter looking places along the curry mile but to rate fully will need more visits in future.

My friend and I went for a curry on New Year's Eve and was told there was a set menu which we did not order from! The bill came for £74, it has never been that much ever and we had exactly the same as we always do! We were charged the set menu price as that is the set... More

Me and my boyfriend visited this restaurant last week and were pleasantly suprised, especially the great value for money! We got starter, curry, rice and icecream for £9.99. The dishes all looked and tasted really good especially the chicken balti, however i wasnt so keen on the chicken makhani as it lacked flavour. All dishes were presented really nicely and... More

I was not a fun if curries but I am hooked now after trying this place. I visit there every time I stay in South Shields which is at least 10 days a month over the last year.

Just "ok" Having been previously and found the food outstanding, our last few trips here we have left a little disappointed, food was rather bland and a bit tasteless.

As usual staff so friendly and obliging. Can't fault the food and price is more than reasonable for the standard, variety and choice available. Sometimes you need to wait for first course but that is due to its popularity, always busy. Best to book at a weekend.
