Let me start by saying that prior to this trip to visit my husband's home town, I was not at all fond of Indian food. I'm Latina and so you would think I would love it, right?? Wrong. But that all changed on this vacation. My husband is a huge Indian food fan and I promised that I would give... More

Never had a bad meal at Lasun. It's a nice alternative from Ocean Road and the food and service always consistent. Would highly recommend this place.

This time we visited for a frends birthday and as usual we werent dissapointed. The restaurant looks as though it has been newly refurbished but the food was as good as ever. The birthday girl...

Quite simply this is our favourite curry house (and in my opinion the best) in shields. The curries are consistently gorgeous. Never had a bad one. And they have a few different dishes on the menu compared to the usual ocean road venues. The staff are lovely. Very friendly. And the whole place recently had a refurb so looking very... More

We ate here on our last night after completing Hadrians Way Cycle path. The restaurant has great atmosphere, friendly and efficient service, good value for money and excellent food.

We travelled from Gosforth and got the metro to the nearest station to Lasun at Chichester. The decor of the restaurant is attractive and on our arrival we were greeted by a friendly welcome from a member of staff. Service was excellent throughout the evening and staff were attentive, friendly and seemed happy to be working there, which is not... More

I gave up on this restaurant because seemed to have lost its way. The food was poor and the service was very slow. It was possible to die of thirst in this place. However, it's had a make over and reinvented itself. The food was superb and the service was excellent. I would book to avoid disappointment. Throughly looking forward... More
