great find!

Popped in here after a few sherbets in the pub opposite and what a great little restaurant. Excellent food, service and ambience. The restaurant itself is very nicely decorated and the food is to die for. I had the King Prawn Dupiaza (which I asked to be Madras strength) and it was beautiful... read more

Fantastic food. Excellent choice for vegetarians. Nice relaxed service. Not rushed at all. Decor very modern and spotlessly clean and atmosphere lovely. A must visit. Slightly more expensive then ocean road set menus, but at £9.95 for 3 courses well worth it & food was a higher standard definitely.

Awesome we all enjoyed our meals, food was lush. Would Def go again, most the waiters were very helpful but there were a couple of grouchy ones.

Most Indian Restaurants in Shields are in Ocean Road, this one is at Westoe.. but it is well worth seeking out. Huge range of food,polite, excellent service that makes the diner feel really valued and cared for.

Visited on an evening for a friends birthday meal. Our table wasn't ready for our arrival but this was rectified quickly and managed well. The food was delicious, I had a curried sea bass which was sublime. Service was friendly and polite and the new renovations have produced a smart and stylish restaurant. The only slight negative was that the... More

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.
