We had not been for a while and came with a group of friends before an engagement. The timing and service were excellent. The food was well presented and tasty and certainly filling. There is also easy parking at the rear of the building. I suspect if the location was a little closer to central Gosforth, the place would make... More

Have ordered from here three times. On the first occasion a chicken curry arrived as a beef curry. On the second and third takeaway orders were incredibly small, with really mean sized portions. Shame, as the restaurant is conveniently located. Can't see the harm in giving people good sized portions, no matter the size of the order!

Fresh, hot, speedy and really well cooked. Didn't even have a chance to sit down when I went to collect my dinner on Thursday night. Told me 30 mins on the phone when I rang the order in but was ready in 20. PLUS bonus as it was only £9.95 on their mid week special.

Consistent, decent food. I've had 2 times when orders are missing pieces but the guys always rectify by either extra the next time or refunding.

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.

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
