Another excellent takeaway which we shared with friends last night. Ready spot on time and all the dishes - Special Khazna, lamb balti dhall, garlic chicken, vegetable biryani and brinjal bhazee were up to the Ahar's usual high standards. Highly recommended.

We went on Saturday night, it was really busy but the staff and food were lovely as usual. We had popodoms, mains with rice, a naan bread, 3 alcoholic drinks and a coke for £40 which was well worth the money.

We had a take away last night with friends. The service as usual was prompt, friendly and courteous. We prefer more authentic meals so chose chicken adrak and a lamb balti whereas our friends prefer milder curries and opted for chicken bedami and ghost pista milan and commented that it was the best curry they had experienced for a long...

I came with wife and friend to celebrate visit of one of my daughters. We chose Thursday evening because of the regular "tapas" menu and were, as usual, delighted with the quality. Three of us chose for a drink the delicious mango lassie and to finish we all had the fragrant spiced tea.

Enjoyed the Thursday tapas meal with family/friends. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly and attentive. They even gave us a lesson in napkin folding. Definitely recommend this small and intimate restaurant. Music in background was quiet which i prefer.

We have been going to the Ahar for many years, the quality and taste of all their dishes is exceptional, as is the service, although relatively small, it knocks spots off the other Indian restaurants in the area in my opinion. Long may it continue !

The Ahar was our favourite Indian restaurant in Whitley Bay, good food and good friendly service. A need to loose some weight meant we had not visited the Ahar for a while, but our recent visit really disappointed us and friends who ate at a different time. Is this another restaurant whose staff lost focus and allowed standards to drop.... More
