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”.

“Tucked away in a quiet corner of Jesmond” down an alleyway, this “small” venture is “the new-this-year, permanent home for a very successful former pop-up, specializing in South Indian food”. “Fabulous dosas” are the highlight of an “excellent menu”. Top Tip: “Sunday Sapaad (Buffet) menu is especially good”.

For 30 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).
