Came here on a Monday night in January. Food was really good. One of the best in the area. Would like to go back maybe on a weekend when there are more customers and atmosphere. Drinks well priced.

Been to this Indian restaurant several times now and it has become our restaurant of choice as far as Asian food is concerned. So much variety on the menu that it is difficult to chose. In addition to the traditional dishes served in all the Indian restaurants the Lasun has many new dishes using different fish and/or meat options. Don't... More

We are never disappointed with the food at Lasun. They have a varied menu and friendly, helpful staff who will have a chat and offer advice on altering dishes to suit individual tastes. Upset that they no longer do the lamb shank curry, which was a personal favourite.

I have visited every Indian restaurant in South Shields, during the last thirty years or so and the food and service at Lasun is right up there with the very best of the very best. We travel to South Shields at least once a week for a meal and the Lasun has become our favourite, of late. Really can't recommend... More

As ever a splendid dinner - but the reason I'm doing this review is to applaud the EXTRA special service given . We love Mango Chutney,but,due to a delay in that day's deliveries there was none available. Most restaurants would have said -sorry and left it that. But not Lasun - the chef created his own Mango Chutney on the... More

Just a passing visit. Hadn't ever heard of Lasun, but nipped in whilst walking home. Initially it was for a takeaway (they offer the same menu for takeaway customers), but the restaurant was quiet and I was offered a seat. Very lovely surrounding and atmosphere. Food arrived promptly and well presented. Both courses were my regular takeaway options, so not... More
