Went for a family meal, was told it was close to closing time but they'd serve us. However, they kept rushing for us to order, and when the food turned up it was almost thrown on the table, they were obviously trying to hurry us...along. The food was unattractive, as if they'd emptied the top layer of the bin. One of our party ordered a vegetarian dish, another ordered a chicken dish. They were identical with the exception of a couple of chicken strips across the top of one plate. Staff were rude, pushy, and not what I'd have expected from a small restaurant. We may have southern accents, but we live in the North East and have done for many years. Therefore don't assume we're just visitors and it doesn't matter what you serve us, it should and does matter. Suffice to say, we're not planning another visit and nor will we recommend it to anyone else. If this is your idea of fine Indian cuisine, my advice is to travel a little and compare standards.More

Recently visited on a Friday evening for a meal. The restaurant is based in the Newcastle House Pub. I have to say Covid precautions were really good, and I felt safe. You go in via pub entrance and hand sanitiser is there, and you are...met by someone. To the left is a really nice, well decorated bar area which we did go in after our meal. To the right is a room, with a bar in that is the Indian restaurant. Although all tables were well placed and socially distanced, the room is really tired looking and in my opinion shabby, particularly in comparison with the other room. Drinks are served by the pub and you are billed separately for them which isn't a problem. Both the staff from the bar/hotel and the restaurant were polite, friendly and followed covid secure guidelines. The food in the Indian restaurant was ok and wasn't overpriced, service was good, and staff were friendly.More

We decided to have a bank holiday takeaway during our one night stay in Rothbury. We placed the order over the phone and were told it would be ready in 25 minutes. My husband went to collect and was told to wait outside until it...was ready which was understandable given the current pandemic. He waited and was disappointed to see that someone who came after him was given her takeaway first. He asked again and was told it would be arriving shortly. He was asked to pay (which he had to remind the member of staff he had already done so on arrival). In total he waited outside for thirty minutes. We would have completely understood as it was a busy bank holiday however no apology was given. Food was average. We wont be rushing back.More

Located in the Newcastle House Hotel in Rothbury it is easy to find and lots of parking available on street. Covid measures were all in place and it felt safe. Once seated the drinks are served by someone from the hotel bar, and you are...billed separately for these. This is not a problem and service was very friendly and efficient from all the staff. The food was excellent, we had a Naga chicken, a chicken dish with mint (can't remember the name, but mine was served Madras hot) . If you like Naan bread you are in for a real treat, our Peshwari Naan was light, fluffy and tasty and the best one we have ever eaten. All together a great dining experience - thanks to all the staff and we will be back again when in the area.More

This restaurant is now based in The Newcastle House. We went for a curry earlier, fantastic service, food was of a high standard. COVID19 regulations appear to be strictly adhered to, would definitely recommend.

Stayed in Rothbury and fancied a midweek curry fix. Found the take away menu in our holiday cotttage and thought we'd give it a go. Called and placed my order, food was ready an hour later. Really tasty, fresh and certainly hit the mark. I...had a lamb vindaloo, this was superb along with coconut rice and all the sides. Highly recommend this restaurant for take away.More

Have to say that this is one of the best tandoori restaurants I’ve ever been to. There is a varied menu and every time we have been the food has been excellent. Their chicken tikka garlic mushroom starter is a must

I almost missed this gem. I read the recent reviews which were terrible, it was only when I realised that all the bad reviews were from one group on one night that i decided to give it a go. You have to buy your drink...from the pub downstairs but that was no hardship. The staff were very friendly and the service was good, We had a great assortment of food, it was all served piping hot and was absolutely delicious. Ignore the negative comments and give this place a try - you won't be disappointedMore

The food is fantastic and the family who run this place are lovely. We often visit Rothbury and the trip wouldn’t be complete without a curry from this place. I can be fussy , and I love Indian food. The Jal Jul is probably the...best curry I’ve had. My partner has had a variety of dishes over the years and we have never had a complaint. It’s located above a pub which is a little dated. And the decor of the restaurant is also old fashioned. But don’t judge this place on that. It has a high level of repeat customers and for me that says it all. The only other point to make is that they don’t serve alcohol, however you can grab something from the bar and take it up. Has never bothered us. In summary, get over the decor and enjoy an amazing traditional dish.More
