Having raved about Ministers, several friends and I have given them the benefit of the doubt recently, the staff are just as friendly but either the chef has left or has suddenly altered his cooking style. All the food has become similar and bland. Since the new year I have not eaten there and I won't for a while -... More

I always come here when in Sedgefield and it never fails to hit the right spot. The naans are the best ever and I have had the Dhansak to the Jalfrezi to the Madras and they are always so clean tasting, no fatty like some Indian curries are. The staff are very attentive and service superb - definitely a 'posh'... More

I've been here twice and despite the food being OK I never feel like I've had a good time. It never seems busy for what is quite a spacious restaurant and the decor /service is very old fashioned and a bit dull. Not one I would recommend unless you are very hungry and in good company!

We went back to Ministers last night with friends after been away for a few months and it was fantastic. Beautiful Indian food in a lovely cosy restaurant with great service from the friendly staff. Can't beat it for me. We will always look forward to going and already booked for New Years Eve. Simply superb.
