“A very pleasant change from some of the run-of-the-mill Asian offerings elsewhere in Newcastle” – this “very nice South Indian restaurant” which doesn’t have the greatest entrance (“entry is via a door on a different street and up a flight of stairs”). “An excellent range of dosas” is the highlight of its “excellent value and very consistent food”. Top Tip – “Sunday buffet is especially good value and a great introduction to South Indian cuisine for those unfamiliar and/or unsure what to order”.

Some of the “best-quality Indian” food in Newcastle is to be found at this showcase of vegan cuisine from the south-eastern state of Tamil Nadu, which graduated from pop-up to permanent status four years ago. Top Tip: the “Sunday lunch taster menu is a good-value introduction to the wide range of South Indian dishes available here”.

This “almost hidden” two-year-old serves “great South Indian food” – much of it vegan, following recipes from the state of Tamil Nadu. It’s executed a “brilliant” transition to a permanent site in Jesmond after making its name as a “pop-up in an old fire station in West Newcastle”. Top Tip: “Sunday sapaad (lunchtime set menu) should be your first port of call”.

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).
