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.

Excellent service. The waiting staff were attentive and helpful. There was plenty of choice on the menu and all of our food was very tasty. The atmosphere was good and the location is excellent, right on the main street

The food was just splendid and plentiful and the welcome was warm. We had byriani, tandoori royale, mixed saagawal and chicken tikka masala with garlic naan. We will be back.

We must be the only people who had a monumentally crap takeaway from this place. I order tandoori prawns and got three exceptionally tough crayfish. I ordered mushroom bajhi. Tinned mushrooms. Absolutely tasteless. A nan that had obviously been made yesterday and was cold and...chewy. The only decent thing was the pilau rice! What an absolute waste of money. It makes me wonder whether the other reviews are truthful.More

The restaurant is a pleasant Indian restaurant. It offers a wide choice of dishes. Its bright and airy. The staff are friendly. The meals were well cooked and presented nicely. The restaurant was quiet due to the time of year .

This was the first place we chose to eat our first evening staying in Seahouses. The food was excellent as was the service, our main dishes were the Aloo chicken and Mahari Haash duck - the sauce with that was lovely. We enjoyed the meal...so much we went back again on our last night and had the same dishes! It does get busy, and although we were lucky to get a table without a booking, at a busier time of year booking would be a must.More

Me and my partner were in northumbria for a few days and fancied a curry. The food was delicious and we didn't have to wait long for our food. It was a nice atmosphere and the staff were very polite, would recommend.

This place is a must visit when we are in Seahouses. The dishes are so fresh and tasty every time. Poppadoms, Onion Bajahis and Chicken Tikka Purée starters were just wonderful. Mains were King Prawn Dansak and Chicken Tikka Dansak with rice. Flavoursome with the...perfect balance of spices that gave a little kick, but also the sweetness from the pineapple and lentils. However not exactly the same sauce, which sometimes happens where everything looks and tastes the same. Both meals excellent, as there was nothing left on the plates when we had finished. Thanks to the attentive Spice House staff.More

The food was very good as was the service. If we had not tried the one just down the road the night before I would have given them 10 out of 10. Atmosphere and friendliness just not quite as good as the other one. I...would still highly recommend them. Steve PierceMore

On our arrival restaurant was empty except one table, but we were shown to a table right at the back of the restaurant by kitchen door and where they threw the dirty linen. Food was delicious. Reasonably priced. Didn’t like the way the condiments for...the poppadoms were already prepared in uncovered dishes on a shelf behind us. Our other criticism though the food was served far too quickly between courses. They didn’t give us time to enjoy and savour the lovely food as we were just rushed.More

Just returned and will not go again. No atmosphere, staff couldn’t be bothered and were very uninterested and unprofessional. Very sweet sauces and the prawns on my husbands mixed grill were definitely off… had to spit it out as so rubbery and they smelt awful!...Brasserie is much better and will not be out go to from now on!More

Disappointing and inattentive service. Food was alright but £5 for 2 chappatis seems expensive even in this financial climate.
