We visited the Kismit with a group of friends on Saturday night. We booked for 10 people at 8.30 and arrived promptly. Service was slow but we eventually ordered starters and main courses. 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 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!

The food is amazing all of the time. Never have I had a bad meal. This a small family run place and you really feel welcomed. Without a doubt my favourite Indian restaurant

Excellent food along with brilliant service. Would definitely recommend visiting whether it be with friends or family, the tapas (on a Thursday) is very good giving you a few dishes to try if you can't decide

Went to Kizmet for a birthday meal with my wife & 2 boys. Arrived and was shown to our table straight away. We all opted for the Sunday special (£10.95 per person) starters were great, mains were fantastic and the waiter even managed to make the boys laugh with him humour. We had a great night and will return!
