We've eaten here loads of times, love the food and wasn't disappointed this time. However this time it was lunchtime. We opted for the lunchtime special which is anything on the menu apart from king prawn dishes. No problems so far. Drinks ordered and delivered....More

Food is top notch. The staff are efficient and friendly though a smile or two wouldn't come amiss. Would definitely return.

We got a Saturday night take out. One starter each and a curry each, one rice to share and nan. It was £35. Not the cheapest you could get in Cramlington but you are eating from a restaurant and it is restaurant quality food. It...More

Visiting the area and never eaten here before, probably won't eat here again. £32 for 2 main courses, peas pilau, a plain naan & a pint of Kingfisher, it's a rip off. 3 people could eat a hearty 4 course meal in Shuhag or Shurma...More
