Me and my husband came here to celebrate his birthday early. We had an absolutely gorgeous meal and the service was absolutely fantastic, considering they were busy with big tables, nothing was too much for them. We will definatly be back one of our favourite...Indian restaurants soon.More

Went to Saji’s mid week, with my son who’s a professional chef. Whole experience, from the staff, surroundings, the choice of meals on the menu and the taste - is excellent. If you like Indian cuisine, you have to visit.

My go to restaurant. As an avid fan of Indian Cuisine I have visited most of the Indian restaurants in Newcastle and South Shields and always return to this one. I was a frequent visitor to their previous restaurant, Solomons Dhaba where the food was...second to none. I am pleased to say they have kept up the tradition of serving delicious food. We are non meat eaters and this is one of the few restaurants where there is a really good selection of vegetarian dishes to chose from. Their aloo mushroom balti is to die for, as is the vegetable Achari and vegetable jalfrezi. The staff are always lovely and friendly. I would also recommend their garlic and chilli Nan bread which is quite yummy. If you haven’t tried it, you are missing a treat. A gem of a place that serves up the best Indian food in the Northeast! The floors aren’t marked for social distancing but the tables are well spaced so no risk.More

It was great to be back after too long a Covid absence. I was impressed to see that the car park had been surfaced and marked with parking bays. In spite of not having been there for a couple of years, we still received a...warm welcome. I am not sure if it is my imagination but I thought that the menu was not as extensive as it used to be; though there is still plenty to choose from. The other noticeable thing is that they have stopped serving alcohol, though you are welcome to bring your own. Soft drinks and bottled water are still available. We both had fish dishes to start with. My wife had a Biryani with Chicken Tikka and I had a curry with Chicken Tikka, Chillies and Coriander. As usual the food was absolutely superb. It was so delicious that I couldn't wait to eat it and did so before remembering to photograph it. The service was excellent and it was nice to see Saji again, when he came to see if everything was alright. Looking forward to next time we are over that way.More
