We are total converts to 'The Moon'. The staff are always greet you with a warm handshake and pleasant smile. What I can't understand is that the place is never busy. At best we've seen it half full. However, the food doesn't suffer because of this. The menu has changed and been simplified of late and if memory serves me... More

Tucked away near the bus station in Sunderland this was a real find. Very nice food, excellent service and very good prices. Been back there three times now and the standard is maintained. The restaurant also does a loyalty card scheme which reduces the price even more without a fall in the standard.

Visited this nicely decorated restaurant recently with a group of friends. Waiting staff were pleasant enough although there wasnt much interaction with them. Unfortunately the service was very slow even though the restaurant wasnt busy, this is probably down to the fact that only two waiters were present. The poorest part of the service was the time it took to... More

We discovered this restaurant by chance. The minute we entered we were made to feel so welcome. The layout, staff and atmosphere were excellent. The food was delicious and the lime pickle was awesome. I can't praise this restaurant enough. We had a bottle of red wine with our meal and upon getting back to our hotel decided to have... More

Came here purely because we had 50% off food with a gourmet society card. The food was very nice and came out hot. The server was very friendly and attentive. The food was served quickly. Rice is large enough to share between two people. We didn't get a dessert because we where too full, the dessert menu contained transitional Indian... More

Tried this place not long ago on an evening for their special menu where you get a few courses for a set price. Service was ok at the start and food was fine, however the waiter failed to let me know that their card machine was broke for payment, which pretty much ruined the evening as I had to go... More
