Visited here on a busy Saturday evening in a group of 3. I have visited the Komal on a couple of previous occasions, always very good, but this time exceptional. The moment we walked in, we were warmly greeted by members of staff, luckily for us they had a table. The staff were attentive, warm and although rushed off their feet behaved in a professional manner. I have to say some other restaurants could learn a lesson or two from them. The food was delicious without exception, everything from poppadoms through starters, mains and even the coffee was lovely. We had the misfortune to dine at one of Newcastles top Indian restaurants a few weeks ago, Komal is head and shoulders above what they offered. We spent £85 for 3 which included drinks, poppadoms, 3 x starters, 2 x rice, 3 x mains, 2 x nans, 1 x side dish and 3 x coffees. It was worth every penny.

To sum up, a truly delicious meal served by friendly and efficient waiters, would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

Average food with unbelievably rude staff.

Waited over an hour for our main course. Ordered keema nan but was served a garlic nan instead. When I asked for it to be replaced I was told that it was a keema nan?! After opening the nan and showing the waiter that there was absolutely no meat inside the waiter exploded and refused to admit he was wrong. I paid and left.

Unbelievable....

We stay in Jesmond when using the airport as the Metro is really convenient. We discovered the Komal after arriving back from a holiday, needing a late-night curry! It was fantastic. Only ordered a main course given the hour. I went for a dansac with mushroom pilau and a parata. My wife had chicken tikka with a vegetable bhaji. The food was faultless, and the bhaji spectacular. I will certainly visit again, and recommend the veg. bhaji to anyone who visits. The staff are efficient and not pushy (ie, not pushing "pappadoms" and "more drinks" all the time!).Very well located right next to West Jesmond metro station. ( KOMAL12 ).

Visited with my daughter, who has recently moved to Jesmond, prompted by a flyer delivered to her flat and was very glad we did. Shaslick chicken and chicken dupiatza as good as any we've eaten anywhere. My daughter and her friends will undoubtedly be regulars over the coming months. (KOMAL12)
