“must visit!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

if you happen to be around south shields, definitely visit Aneesa! The food was really good and have quite the variety. Though some of the dishes were a bit spicy (i like spicy food anyway so not a complain for me). The desserts were a bit of a downer though. Nonetheless, a defo worth visit!

“Never Disappoints”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Very impressed yet again with Aneesa's, had a new rang of currys on since the last time i visited and all were delicious! The staff are all very polite and knowledgable about the different dishes. Its also a nice touch with the chefs cooking right infront of you as well.

Would reccommend to anyone who cant decide which curry to have at an Indian...here you can have all of them!

“Excellent range!!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Really impressive buffet with a huge range of Indians dishes plus dishes from Chinese Italian and English cuisine.

We were a group staying in the travelodge above so was nice to have somewhere near by to come to.

They also have a make your own stir fry area which gets cooked in front of you.

Service could be less intrusive ... But I get the feeling over clientele want their plates cleared straight away so can understand as well.

Lastly the young waitres who shew us round was too notch and extremely friendly so hats off to her..

“Delicious”
Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Have been to aneesas twice and loved both visits. Selection of starters is great and you can watch them being cooked. Mains are good although I would have liked a hotter option and last but not least is the great ice cream. Great place, lovely restaurant and friendly helpfull staff. Would defiantly go again.

“Mmmmmmmmmm!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

Have visited Aneesa's quite a few times since we discovered it, id say its the best buffet restaurant i have been to in terms of atmosphere, cleanliness, and hospitality. The food is always fresh and tasty and i find there is a good selection from mild to very spicy, ranging from the salad bar, rice, curries, indian snack food and also pizzas. Some of my favourites are the chicken sheek kebab and the masala fish. Id say visit here on an empty stomach as there is so much to choose from you'll want to try it all! Its always really busy, although ive always just turned up hoping for a table, if you were to go in a big group it would be a good idea to pre book a table. As they do not serve alchohol you are allowed to take your own as i have seen a lot of people doing but i think they charge a corkage fee. As we dont tend to drink alchohol with our meals we opt for soft drinks or water. If soft drinks, we prefer to order a jug as its cheaper than ordring two each or we get a large bottle of water. The only criticism i have is that tap water is not available here, most places would serve it if asked. Overall the layout and quality of the restaurant is above par for a buffet place and the staff are always friendly. See you again soon.
