We visited the restaurant four nights ago with our grandson. On arrival you notice the restaurant is very comfortable friendly and spotless. We had very prompt and attentive service. Excellent quality food and good wine. This restaurant is local to our family and we have never been disappointed.

I usually have a take away from here. Not sure what the problem is. Had a takeaway last n the summer which was gorgeous. Recently ordered the same Butter Chicken. But the sauce was sour and curdled! This has happened before twice. Why didn't I complain or take my it back? Because I didn't want have to go all the... More

Love this restaurant in Gosforth . Staff are always pleasant and the restaurant itself is spotlessly clean. Food is amongst the best I've tried and very cheap for what you get . They have great deals on with loads of food so much that normally half of it gets taken home . Nice surroundings and a relaxed atmosphere

Appalling takeaway service, only ordered 2 meals and got it wrong, rang up to have correct order delivered which came but was bland and burnt, won't return and certainly wouldn't recommend

We often eat here as a,family and the food never disappoints. I think they rely more on takeout orders as the restaurant is almost always empty. Service is friendly yet always very, very slow which is why only three stars. Curries are flavoursome and filled with meat, and the rice dishes are delicious. Perfect if you don't mind a leisurely...

It's been here for a long time and, I suspect, a lack of reviews points to a lack of customers. Shame really because Gosforth lost 2 Indian restaurants in the last 18 months - yet this place has not stepped into the void. Possibly because it is away from the High Street and possibly because whilst the decor is bright... More

I actually played music on the opening night here. The curries are good although a bit more authentic when it first opened. However the food is good and not too expensive. Give me another gig Arthur!
