Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I attended here on a Friday evening with another friend. The decor of the restaurant was nice. The serving staff were extremely friendly and professional. I ordered the lamb kebab starter which was really tasty. My friend had a paneer as a starter which was...also nice. The chicken biryani man was also really tasty. All of the food was well presented and I think overall fairly reasonably priced. Overall, I would certainly return.More

We decided on a delivery from this establishment and registered and ordered from there web site at 5.30pm. Unfortunately we are asked to call at 7pm if it had not arrived which we did. We were told that our food was ready but no drivers...to drop it off. Eventually the owner dropped it off 2hrs later. The food was of good quality and I must say it was excellent. They had included a chutney & poppadom tray free of charge. I think overall it was good value for money at £45 for two peopleMore

We booked this restaurant last minute and made our reservation the last one on a Saturday evening which was 10:30pm. Due to the concert at nearby Sage running late, we were late as a result! The restaurant called me just to check we were still...attending and we confirmed that we were and arrived 10 minutes late. That was absolutely no problem to the team. They made us feel so welcome and I un rushed as I’m sure they, like anyone else, wanted to get tidied away and home! The whole team were so friendly, they chatted with us and really made us feel like a valued customer. This meant a lot. Next is the food! It was absolutely amazing, we all had a fantastic meal, the sauces were superb. I have to say that this was probably one of the best Indian meals I have ever had! Would thoroughly recommend!More

The best indian restaurant we've ever been to with authentic food that is lovingly prepared,the passion and knowledge of the staff is evident as soon as you walk through the door,we visited on a Friday night and it was practically empty, which is a sin...considering the quality. I can only assume that the location of this restaurant (it not being in Newcastle city centre) is the only reason for this, even though it is just past the Gateshead side of the Tyne Bridge,so not any real distance at all. Raval should have a queue out the door for what they provide. The food was out of this world too,we will return.More
