My friends and I were so blown away by their authentic Indian cuisine. I was so happy that I could finally taste the spicy-ness in Indian food. I ordered medium level spice and it was great! The manager was so kind to give me a complimentary naan to go with my tikka masala and after we finished our meal, he... More

It's very friendly restaurant, you can come and eat really good and tasty food! Meals are really big so you will never be hungry.It's possible to take away your food if you will not finish. It's very friendly place, staff is excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for good food!

Completely coincide with aqua0. It's hard to find an Indian restaurant that stands out but this one does. We went after a football match and were completely amazed - by the food, the service, the atmosphere, everything. And to cap it all the owner gave us a lift back to our hotel! This restaurant is worth going a long way... More

Everything you've read so far is an understatement! This place is absolutely fantastic. The food is the best I think I've ever had in the UK, never mind the North East. Mmm, the flavours, wow. The attention by the staff is excellent, and we even had a chat before the meal with the chef to discuss his recommendations based on... More

I must say that this is one of the best Indian restaurants i have been to in the North East of England! The ambiance is really nice and the food was just amazing. The lamb briyani , was a dish that gave my taste buds a real treat. I would really recommend this place for anybody looking for Indian dishes!

My favourite! Deserves a lot more custom -it just a little out of the way- it's so worth it! The food here is freshly prepared and spiced to order- mild, medium or hot. It is well worth the wait. They even have a healthier option- chargrilled. The mixed grill is a massive portion and my husbands favourite- there are kebabs,... More

Please, please, please, you must give this restaurant a go. The location, in fairness, does not represent the quality of this amazing restaurant. Realistically, if this restaurant was in London you would need to book weeks in advance but we are so lucky to have this restaurant in Sunderland and if you live anywhere near you must pay a visit......you...

We made a reservation at the Monsoon Kitchen on Saturday, 24th October on the recommendation of friends. We do not live in the area and so didn't really know where to go. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the menu was interesting and quite different to the run of the mill Indian Restaurants and the food was extremely good. We were... More
