We have used both the home delivery service and had meals in the restaurant a many times either just the two of us, a table for four or my special birthday when 10 came. We have always found it excellent, the staff most welcoming and as regulars, they remember what we drink, even that my drink is with no ice. I am surprised to read the recent negative reviews so thought I should record our findings. In fact we will be revisiting next month with two different friends. By the way, the food was fantastic too, we tend to go on quiet nights when it is not so crowded.Mrs Burns of Tudhoe

Bad service. Had to ask for everything. Cleared plates away before we were finished eating. Mediocre food.

Ordered a take away :Lamb chop starter, Special kebab starter, aloo gobi, chicken pathia, egg pilaw rice and a keema nan. was told when I picked it up that they don't do lamb chops, the special kebab had no tikka chicken or lamb but only consisted of two shick kebabs and a few onions. Pathia was no more than a bland chicken plain curry, the nan was plain and there was peas in the pilaw rice.

The owner seemed more interested in some regular customers and spent most of the night attending to then and ignoring us and other diners. His staff followed his lead. The service was abysmal. We weren't offered a drink at the table, had to ask for popadums, weren't offered desserts or coffees. As well as giving this service, they are losing themselves money. On top of this, the food was average and the prices over the top for the location. Even with limited options in Spennymoor, I suggest you avoid this place.
