I first visited the week this restaurant opened to many years ago to remember now and have visited off and on since. My last visit with friends was ok, but that's the problem, OK is not good enough now. A restaurant should be at its best on a Saturday night and you have to wonder if the chef had the... More

Visited pretty much 'on spec' as I fancied a traditional Indian meal. It was mid week and fairly early so was not put off that it was quiet. There was an electric heater on a lead in the restaurant as I entered. The service and price was fine but the place lacked ambience and the food was very bland. My... More

We were told up to 45 minutes for food to be delivered but after an hour we had to chase up the order and were told "it's just on it's way". It finally arrived after an hour & a half's wait, was pretty much cold & generally inedible. Vegetable samosas were filled with a tasteless lump of stodge, with soggy... More

Visited with my partner on Saturday night. We got dressed in our best for a night on Grey street a meal then a few drinks in near by bars. On arrival we were shown to a table, and found straight away the restaurant was very small and tables very close together, a table of four were next to us and... More

Grumpy staff, very disappointing food. Vegetable jalfrezi unforgivably consisted of frozen vegetables in a watery sauce, even worse my wife's chick peas and spinach with mint featured vinegary mint sauce that is usually found on the condiments table at the disastrous local carvery. The garlic naan was the best thing about the meal

Ate here the night before "The Great North Run" about 7 o'clock. Was quite empty when we walked in, which wasn't a good sign ... but the food was very good. Because it was busy the obviously "bored" waiters rushed to the table to clear as soon as we finished! Having said that it was good, well presented Indian food.

Excellent Indian restaurant which for years has maintained a great reputation for both quality of food and service. Whether early evening or at closing time, a great place to eat with friends
