Bern here twice now and consistently good. Standard Indian food with the odd twist, try the chicken livers. The food can be made to suit your palate. The nan can feed a family of 4 for a week. Try it.

Me and my wife have been to this restaurant on many occasions, the food is magnificent and the staff are nearly always more than helpful. However... Last night, me and my wife were celebrating our 5th anniversary, ate our meals and asked for the bill. When the bill came, there was the cost of a drink on there that I... More

poor food, service and overall ambiance. There is so much of hype with this place, I really doubt if they are interested in improving anything at all. Not giving it another chance.

Great curry place in Middlesbrough. Probably only good one I have tried and caters to all needs. Haven't been to the original one like. Love the chicken liver and fish masala they offer on the starter menu. Order 1 naan between 4 there's too much food! And maybe some rice too that's if you don't have a starter. Potatoes are... More

We have eaten here many times and all without too much disappointment, the food is delicious and lives up to its raved about standards, portions are perfect, prices are great and naan breads like sleeping bags. We usually always end up here on a friends birthday. Only thing we could complain about is we never get a square tabled instead... More

Heavily spiced, overly salted, and lacking sophistication, which is -- let's face it -- what most people want after a skinful of beer.

This place was the highlight of our stay in Middlesbrough. The food was fantastic and staff were extremely attentive and helpful. Be warned! It is almost impossible to stop eating... if you get the "family naan" you will eat until you die! If I lived nearby, I would eat here every night and put on 20 stone. Poppadoms, three meals,...

Best curries I have tasted, really good value. Can get very busy and service can suffer at peak times although staff do their best.
