This curry house is local and the currys are a good standard washed down with kinfisher makes for a good night. There are better curry houses but this place is well priced and always enjoy it.

It's a few years since I last visited the Monsun which was always a favourite of mine. Staff are attentive and there is a warm ambience. The food didn't disappoint although I think there must be a change of chef since the last time I visited. I noticed slight changes to the meals I selected but still delicious. Good value... More

Really disappointed, ordered a takeaway and when I opened it there was an elastic band in the food! So gross and totally put off entire order and complete waste of £20. Contacted the restaurant and told them what had happened and was completely ignored. Will never go back!

Visited this restaurant when in Gateshead...........excellent choice. Good quality Indian food and well priced. Varied menu and give you some 'specialities'..........Tika/Keema highly recommended. Service was quick and efficient and very pleasant even when very busy for both sit-in and carry out. Obviously a popular Indian restaurant in this area and beyond. Can highly recommend.

I think the quality of food for the price you pay is excellent value for money. I normally get the £9.95 special which is on six days a week (excluding Saturdays) which includes starter, main...
