We have eaten in a few different curry restaurants over the years in South Shields and have to say this is our favourite by a mile.

We decided to visit as my step dad has been going for a while and really recommended. The restaurant was quiet but we were there for 6.30 and a Tuesday. We were greeted by the staff and offered which ever table we wanted. Drinks orders and popadoms came straight away. We and to wait for the starters but this was... More

My first time here. Food was lovely. When arrived with partner only had one menu spare. Came with it in the end but it's the small things that count and this was slightly annoying. Had several courses which were very lovely. However this is a very busy place and the kitchen is so small so no wonder it took over... More

This small friendly restuarant is just a short distance from the town centre and well worth the travel. The staff are friendly and welcoming and there is a very varied menu. I visited twice, once with family and once with friends. All the meals (at least 7 or 8 different choices) were very good. The value for money is very... More

We went with friends last weekend, our first visit to the restaurant after having a good take away from here before. Not a bad little place, bit draughty. Waiters were very pleasant but a little slow. Quite a varied menu but still offering the special menu at a good price. Not enough pickles arrived for the poppadoms for 4 people,... More

Well away from Ocean Road, this small restaurant has consistently delivered high quality food with many more unusual options on the menu than normal Indian restaurants. Hardly go anwhere else in Shields these days and whenever I do, I always wish I'd just stuck to Lasun. Best lamb chops Ever!!
