This place is fantastic, we had 10 people for a wonderful 3 course meal and it only came to £120. I don't know how they can produce such brilliant food at such fantastic prices. And the service is top notch too, all the waiters are really friendly and they always make you feel special when you go. Well done all... More

I've been young here for years for every type of occasions and I've never been disappointed. Delicious food, excellent service and fantastic value. It can get busy so book ahead.

Went here for my birthday and they happily accommodated 21 of us. It was fantastic food, very reasonably priced and the service was impeccable. They even brought out a nice big ice cream with a firework for my birthday treat. Great food and would go back without hesitation.

Decided to go out for a curry on Ocean Road for a change and after looking at reviews ended up at Spice Garden. Service was quick, meals off set menus were good quality, tasty and nicely presented. Good value at a shade over £30 with tip for three people. Would definitely come back.

We have been eating here for the past 6 years now. That in itself speaks volumes and anyone that knows me knows that I like quality. We booked a table for 10 and by 6.30pm the whole restaurant was full with a group of 6 young lads waiting for a table at the bar. We all enjoyed quality starters with... More

With so many curry housed to choose from you would think the standards would be high in general in South Shields but er have recently had so many disappointing curries. The Spice Garden was a breath of fresh air. Great service and fantastic food. Can't remember the last time I enjoyed an Indian meal so much. We will definitely be... More

We've just got back from our second meal at the Spice Garden in as many weeks. The food is phenomenal. Really. The service is friendly and professional too. It's a great Indian restaurant.
