Best Curry in Shields

Booked a table and was led promptly to the table. the waiter/chef forgot about our order but was very quick to make amends and apologised profusely and gave the table free drinks. The meal was well worth the wait and probably did us a favour by making us wait the hour. the meal was the best I've... read more

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've been visiting here for over a year and have consistently had excellent food. The service can be a little slow but once you see the size of the kitchen this is understandable. Staff... 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
