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.

I’ve been to countless Indian restaurants over the last 40 years and Latif is without doubt one of the best, if not THE best. I love the decor. It’s spotlessly clean. Service is excellent. The proprietors are lovely. The prices are reasonable. Good location. Best...of all, the food is just perfect. It’s nothing fancy but delicious, freshly cooked and really flavoursome. My lamb Madras was really tender and the sauce was rich and warming, but not too hot. Latif sets the standard which all Indian restaurants should aspire to. I’ve been three times over the last year and will be going again soon…….can’t wait.More

We had the Sunday Special menu, which was very good value. Albeit this review is more about the quality of the food, my tester dishes for review are the prawn purée and lamb jalfrezi both were excellent. The building and ambiance were also superb. Give...it a goMore

This is a very good Indian restaurant, have been to numerous ones over the years but this was very good. The Bangladeshi specials we had were great. Service was fantastic and it was nice to visit somewhere without purple lighting and trying to be modern....Great food.More

So normally I go to Shampan in Whitley Bay but after discovering this place last month, I have changed to this place. Ate in twice and both times the food has been incredible, please don't let the interior put you off as it does look...outdated and their music is played on a TV with YouTube on but genuinely if you can look past that, you'll eat the nicest food.More

We wanted a traditional British Indian restaurant meal and were not disappointed. Pleasant ambience in the dining area. All the favourites available at decent prices (especially with the Thursday specials, which contained all the items that I would have ordered anyway from the a la...carte). Friendly staff. Good location near the railway station. If in Newcastle again we would visit this restaurant again.More

Visited here after a show at the life centre on a Wednesday evening. Initially quiet but picked up as the evening went on. What an absolute gem of a restaurant. The gentleman who served us was brilliant. We have favourite dishes from our hometown restaurant,...we explained what they were and he pointed out in his menu which were similar. Both these dishes were absolutely gorgeous. One was a lamb Jal Masala. I can't remember the name of mine. Arrived piping hot with garlic rice, keema naan and chips. All really lovey and cooked to perfection. Forgot to mention the chicken puree and bhaji for starters, also excellent. The restaurant was spotless and the staff lovely. We just wish it was closer so it could be our regular place!More

Spending a few days in Newcastle so had to have a curry one evening. Looking at trip advisor there were so many to choose from but we decided on Latif as it was on the way back to our hotel. It was early evening so...it was very quiet but the food was absolutely brilliant. Best Madras I've had in a long time. Staff were fantastic as well. I would definitely recommend this place.More

My wife and I went here on a Tuesday evening at about 8:30 pm. It was very quiet but the food was excellent. I had a lamb madras. The meat was really tender and the sauce just the right level of heat. My wife had...a vegetable dish which she loved. The restaurant is very clean and well furnished. We both are looking forward to going back to this restaurant soon.More

Well, having read loads of reviews, I decided to give Latif a go. What a master stroke that was. Great eating environment, friendly and helpful staff. The toilets were spotless. There was clearly a lot of pride here. Now the food - just perfect and...lots of it. Had my routine meal when I'm out which is poppodoms, onion bhaji, chicken Vindaloo, rice and Nan. The food was perfect and big portions. I rolled out of there. The curry was very hot how a Vindaloo should be and a big shout out to the Aloo Nan. When I go back to Newcastle, I won't try anywhere else - I'm a convert.More

What a lovely place! We dined here on 13 Aug 2022 while we were on a mini break from Scotland. Spotlessly clean, crisp white table linen. Beautiful. The staff are so nice and very attentive and gave big beaming smiles when we complimented them on...the cuisine! Hubby had chicken Karachi which had a lovely balance of spices. Hot, but not overly so. I had the passanda with chicken and it was the creamiest, dreamiest passanda ever! We accompanied our meals with rice and peshwari naan, both of which were scrummy! We both agreed they were among the best curries we have ever tasted. Again, we can’t compliment the staff enough. Such a fab dining experience! Highly recommended!More

It was my first time in Newcastle so can't describe the location too well. It's not far from the station and was actually recommended to us by a bouncer at a local pub. What a recommendation. Quite simply THE best curry I've ever had. Such...a lovely venue, immaculate everywhere. The table cloths and serviettes were so lovely crisp and fresh I felt bad at the end of the meal when we had got a couple of stains on them. Staff are very welcoming. We hadn't booked but we were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. Service was very good, quick, caring but not overbearing in any way. What can I say about the food other than oh my goodness absolutely amazing! I'm veggie and sometimes dishes are a bit underwhelming. Not at Latifs. Everything I had was amazing. The portions were huge and it beat both me and my hubby! We couldn't eat everything. I would like to say thank you to this lovely gem and the people who own it for your warm welcome and exceptional food. Five out of five, higher if I could.More

First time (and last time) here with friends. The service was ridiculously slow. Took them an hr just to get us drinks and they somehow only took orders from half the table and neglected the other half. Placing orders was just chaotic. Had to repeatedly...flag the waiters with what we wanted for food and drinks. They kept missing drinks and starters. Took them 2 hours to get the mains out and some people on our table still didn't have their mains. They also missed multiple sides. Food was also very bland. My chicken tikka masala was bright neon red which indicated high use of food colouring. The other people on our table also said they've defs had a better Indian elsewhere. Even a supermarkets takeout is better than this. At least food only takes a few minutes in the microwave and tastes better. They again took forever to work out the bill. They were so so slow, we ended up paying at the counter. Don't think we'll be back.More
