We came here Saturday evening around 9pm, were seated near the back in a cosy corner (possibly because we weren't dressed as smart as everyone else!). I grew in Whitley bay and my parents came here regularly, since then it's had a renovation and it looks lovely inside. The service was really good and the food was also extremely tasty.... More

We have visited this restaurant before. We have always had excellent food and service here. However on this occassion we were amazed! The restaurant had been completely renovated and it was the wow factor. New tables and crushed velvet seating. Really modern lighting and pleasant background music. Even the toilets were renovated. And as usual, the food was excellent, reasonably... More

We popped in here when our usual haunt was closed for the summer holidays. They have a Friday night special menu that includes poppadoms, a starter, main with rice or a naan bread, a side dish between 2 and a dessert for £11.95. The portions were generous and everything tasted great. We will definitely visit again.

Visited last night for a family get together, 14 of us in total. The service was friendly as always, we had booked in advance and the table was ready upon arrival, the staff were welcoming and took the orders including dishes not exactly on the menu no problem. The makeover is a nice improvement. The atmosphere is good and the... More

We use to frequent this restaurant on a regular basis a few years ago but stopped as the food was hit and miss and the décor was a little tired. Returned last weekend for fathers day (treat from my boys) as it had recently undergone a refurbishment. Pleasantly surprised as it has been brought into the 21st century with clean... More

We made the mistake of ordering a takeaway meal from Shahenshah, we should have known better as they have got an order wrong before. When the order was called in the noise in the background was terrible and the person taking the order rang off without reading it back. When it was finally delivered there were main courses missing and... More

Can't fault the place really, as a friend of mine works there occasionally. He made it a great evening for me and pulled me out of the mud - hadn't booked anywhere for Valentines day !! Great food and service and very reasonable.
