The food very tasty and very close to the traditional indian cuisine. The prices are very reasonable, and the amount of food is very satisfing. I have tried every curry in the menu and I loved every single one. The service is very friendly but a bit slow. It is the restaurant I would go every week.

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!
