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!!

I was playing call of duty whilst eating food from lasun. It was delicious and exotic. I ate food from there several times during my business visit.

Thought we might give this small restaurant a try. We booked for later that evening and had a very nice meal. The place was a little noisy as there was a large party in, but that didn't stop us enjoying the meal. Service was good and prices reasonable

we were served anything approaching the photos uploaded by the management. We were a large party which arrived early to an empty restaurant and then waited an hour for the food to arrive. By this time the kids were hungry and bored, the adults hungry and using alcohol as calories. The wait wasn't long enough. Chicken chat was a bland... More

I've been to Lasun on a number of occasions and every time the quality of the meal is excellent. The staff are very welcoming and there is a good selection on the menu. I've tried various curries and my favourite by far for a starter is chicken chat masala - delicious. Various mains are really worth trying especially chicken pathia.... More

Not sure where the negative reviews have come from, not sure customers have actually been to the same restaurant as my husband and I, certainly not to this restaurant. Service, especially the manager always pleasant, welcoming and cannot do enough for you. Manager spent a while chatting to us making sure everything was to our standard and satisfactory. Always manage... More

We are regular visitors to the Lasun, always find the food very good, but the last two visits we have found the service poor. The manager has been very negative certainly not welcoming, this Friday he completely ignored us & left us standing at the door. He seemed to be more pleasant to a group of men, not to three... More

6 of us went to eat at this restaurant. The food and price was very good, and the service was very friendly and attentive. I prefer other Indian restaurants in the town but that is my choice.

We went early Sunday evening for my mother's birthday as it is her favourite restaurant in South Shields. The staff are very attentive and informative. After the obligatory popadoms and pickles. We ordered peaz lamb chops for starters. Which are fantastic basically melt in the mouth tandoori lamb chops with delicate sauces with a little kick. They have all the... More
