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!

Up the stairs in to the restaurant which takes you the heart of the premises. (No good if disabled). Lots of tables on the first floor but empty on a Friday night???? Staff were very good a polite and the food was brilliant. The cost was average and I just don't know why it's not packed. Shame because it lacked... More

We live close to here and wouldn't go anywhere else for a takeaway. You get a bottle of wine if you spend 40 pound which is handy if there are a few of you. Great range of specials and the naan breads are divine

Myself and my partner absolutely love this Indian takeaway/restaurant. We have had numerous takeaways which have been amazing. They are always on time or earlier and piping hot. They do a fantastic deal Sunday - Thursday which is 5 courses for £9.99 and we love it! I would really recommend the Shahi Tukra - quite spicy but so much flavour!!... More

Moved to Gosforth from Morpeth around 2 months ago. Never thought I would be able to find a Curry house to match the local we had up there, but I was wrong. We got a leaflet through the door just as we moved in, stating a deal of 5courses for a tenner. Since we were knackered from the move and... More

Meal wasn't great for me. Tarka daal was bland, missing seasoning and key flavours. Paneer tikka masala had aubergine and okra in it which was very random - never experienced this before anywhere else and wasn't great. The best things for me was the naan and masala poppadoms. On a positive note, the customer service was brilliant and staff were... More
