Ordered a take away from this restaurant, ordered it via the just eat app for 18.30 hrs. I got an e mail saying that they received my order and it would be delivered at the time we asked for. The meal arrived promptly at the time we asked for and it was all absolutely delicious. Will be regularly ordering from... More

Located on the famous South Shields Ocean drive the competition is fierce so each restaurant has to be good and this is no exception. The waiters are very smartly dressed and the service is excellent . The food is good but not great and I have eaten better although the tandoori lamb chops were delicious . Decor is cool and...

First trip to Ocean Road & hopefully not the last. Only a small place but a really enjoyable meal with a varied menu with one or two dishes I've never seen before. I had the scallops in a Karahi sauce which were lovely as were the tandoori port chops to start with. Menu is available online

having never been thought we would give this a go, we all ordered from the special menu yet when the bill came it was at least £10 more than it should have been, one of the dishes a prawn balti was very bland and left uneaten, the manager did remove this from the bill but overall very dissappointing

Indigos in South Shields is Amazing, always a fantastic curry and they even made me a curry that wasn't on the menu, the starters are amazing, food is well presented on the plate, everything's fresh. I would rate this out of a 100 as 100. Best Indians I've Ever been too. Very friendly staff too.

Visited this restaurant with a group of work colleagues in the early evening. It was my first visit and found the staff very welcoming. I particularly liked the decor and atmosphere. There waz a gud choice on the menu and not too confusing. The meal itself was lovely and I will be visiting again with my family.

Recently visited this restaurant with my boyfriend, mam and nana - have to say it was without a doubt the best curry I have ever had!!! We all know that bloated and heavy feeling we get when eating a curry and usually the next day we pay the price however here it was so different. The curry was light and... More

I visited this place with 4 friends on a wet Wednesday night but the restaurant was warm and the food was nice and very good value for what we paid. I would go back there.
