Visited on a Friday evening after a long walk along the coast. The place is snug but not over crowded with pleasant helpful staff. Service is speedy and the food excellent. I would visit again and there are plenty of options on the varied menu.

Nice food..staff ok. Expensive. Madrass curry is not hot. Beer a rip off price. Been to much better Indian places in Shields. They put far too much ice in soft drinks..don't ask.if want ice..waters the pop down.
