This 2020 newcomer in a Victorian building just off the Quayside creates “unusual twists on Indian cuisine” by using a modern Josper grill to recreate the ‘primal’ smoky flavours of the subcontinent’s traditional regional cuisines. Top Tip – “wonderful cocktails”.

“A brilliant newcomer to Newcastle Quayside's dining scene” launched in the unfortunate times of late 2020, and offering retro Indian comfort food; its 'smoke play' dishes – cooked traditionally over red-hot coals and burning wood in a special Josper oven – are “really high quality” by early reports, with “lots of unfamiliar dishes” and a “great-value set menu”.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
