We went on a Thursday as they have 6 courses for £10.95. The food was so good and very filling we had no room for ice cream or coffee! It's my "Go To" restaurant for special occasions.

A few years back you would struggle to get a table at Kismet - it always had so many fans due mainly to the excellent food. Scroll forward to 2016 and the majority of its 'loyal' patrons appear to have had their heads turned by the shiny new alternatives a few doors away. This is a shame for the management... More

After poppadoms our staters were served at about 9.30 then we waited until 10.30 for our main courses. At no time were we given an explanation as... More

We were regulars at the Kismet back in the early days and never fail to make it our first port of call when we are back in the Country. Once again last night confirmed our views with an excellent meal served and the same friendly welcome back! We have tried many other Indian Restaurants in the North East and have... More

We were staying at the park resorts caravan park in Whitley bay and decided one night to order in a curry. The food was reasonably priced and arrived on time. Best of all I had the best chicken balti I'd ever eaten and my husband said he had the best keema naan he'd ever eaten. The food was that good... More

We have eaten here on a number of occasions and will continue to as it's fabulous. Don't be distracted by the surrounding flash restaurants.....it may not be the most modern but the food is 1st class as is the service. We travel from morpeth as no other indian restaurants compare!
