We've been here before and will continue to return. We originally book table for two on New Year's Eve and they were happy to amend this to table of four without hesitation. Very busy but that was to be expected on NYE anyway but the service was not affected in any way. The food was lovely and the guys were... More

This has to be the best Indian restaurant I have been to in Newcastle. Been here on 4 separate occasions and still not let down! Would happily return without a second thought! Always greeted by friendly, cheerful staff who don't let you down with service. Never too long of a wait on food or orders when proven by receiving starters... More

My friend ordered sheesh kebab roll which is up there with the best starter courses I have ever tasted. Mains were good too and again the tarka dal was... More

The restaurant seemed busy, which is always a good indication that the restaurant is popular. It took an age to be served, let alone offered a drink. When the food arrived it was pleasant but nothing to write home about. At the end of the meal we were not offered any mints or sweets that is the norm at Indian... More

I initially was greeted by a lovely older gentleman who showed me to a table, i was eating alone as i was on a business trip. I was put on a little table in the corner, normally this would be fine for me as when i'm on my own i like to be out the way. However on this occasion... More
