I have been here 3 times now, but never left a review on Tripadvisor. Not only is it the best Indian meal I’ve ever had, but the best meal I’ve ever had, and I’ve eaten in some of the worlds finest. It is consistently excellent,...the food is tender, flavoursome and delicately spiced and seasoned. I had lamb this time, it was beyond expectations! A special mention to the staff (even the trainee) who are friendly, attentive and efficient. The proprietor was there to greet us as always. It’s a delight to dine here. It’s easy to see how they are winners of the British Curry Awards..More

We popped here as a family for a Friday evening treat, the food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented by the most delightful, courteous and pleasant waiters I have ever come across !

Had an OK meal here tonight. Staff were really pleasant but the restaurant does not live up to what you'd expect given the prices the charge. First issue was with the starters. We ordered the fish and chicken. Chicken was lovely, but the fish was...just bland. It was the same fish you'd get from a chip shop. We complained but nothing was done about it. Main courses were OK. Typical for what you'd expect at a mid-range curry house, but not here. After eating with our hands, in the Indian style, we'd expected to have been given towels to clean our hands. They weren't offered. Nor were fennel seeds or anything like that. We got the 10% off from being in the Raval club, but as we'd gone out of our way to go here, and paid for the experience, we expected far more. If you want to be a standard curry house then charge appropriate prices. If we pay for a fine dining experience, then that is what we expect! - Just to say as well, that the atmosphere didn't help. First they were playing a series of uptempo jazz numbers (with drums) which is hardly relaxing let alone Indian. When this ended, it switched to Frank Sinatra. Can you please make a point of searching out some Indian music? For a fine dining experience I'd expect Inidian classical music. For a mid-range, Bollywood tracks. Finally, staff didn't have facemasks on, not even when coming close. Very unimpressed.More

Seen all these nice reviews and thought I’d give it a shot, garlic Nan was like £1 from Iceland, chips also were fries not Indian, waiter stunk of sweat. Before we got the bill we said what do u think it’s came to my lass...said £60 the bairn said £45 and I said I’d only pay £28 if this was on “four in a bed” and that’s only because I had 2 pints. Better and cheaper Indians on ocean road shields. Bill came to £98 for something I wouldn’t feed the dogsMore

This restaurant is amazing. There is a huge range of Indian dishes to choose from but, along with the usual curries, they have a lot of interesting special dishes. I started with crispy fish bites and then had a wonderful king prawn dish. The portions...were really generous and the two guys who were doing all of the serving were absolutely fantastic. It's quite a large restaurant but they managed to make sure everybody was looked after. We were staying in Newcastle but it was an easy walk across the Millennium Bridge and then up a slight hill to get to the restaurant.More

Have visited this restaurant quite a few times over the years and have always thought the food was excellent but for some reason I didn’t expect the takeaway to be of the same standard. How wrong can one be? Every aspect of this takeaway was...exceptional...the freshness and taste of the food, the packaging and the delivery. A tad more expensive than most takeaways but well worth every penny. Both my partner and I agree that it’s easily the best takeaway we have ever eaten. I really don’t think we will be ordering from anywhere else again cos it’s going to be very hard to beat on quality!More

ordered food through Just Eat at 19.15. got message for collection at 20.30. we then got message 30 minutes before collection to cancel our order. (we were already on our way) we had looked forward to our meal for a week as we were celebrating...our anniversary, at last minute we had to look for other options. i would never go back as you cannot order with confidenceMore
