After reading the glowing reviews for the Spice Venue we booked on a Tuesday night while we were staying in the Consett Area. We were full of high expectations. All we can think is that we either went to the wrong restaurant or we went on the chef's night off!
The restaurant was deserted when we arrived. The staff were friendly and we were shown to a table in an alcove which gave us some privacy and didn't emphasize our sole status.
The meal was reasonably priced but we did not finish it all. The pickle tray lacked any imagination, the poppadoms were greasy, the main meals were more like curried onion dishes with not much chicken and the naan bread was hard and mostly inedible. The red wine was, however, delightful and was a good match with the Indian cuisine.
We wished that we had stayed in our Hotel and eaten in their Restaurant.

The food here is great and there is a fairly good range to choose from, in particular with the mains. Venue kebabs come recommended for starter and in terms of mains all excellent but the rice portions could be bigger - usually we would share one but you'd need one each here!

Added bonus at the end of the meal, found out they are part of Gourmet Society so got 25% off! Also manager very nice and his service was very friendly.

Not happy with this place what so ever! Ordered a take away, which took over an hour and a half to arrive. After ringing three times to ask where our order was the guy, hung up on my partner. I rang back several times to complain and was greeted with the engaged telephone tone. When I eventually got through I asked to speak to the manager and was told I could not. This restaurant will not get my money or presence again. Neither sitting in or take away. Not happy at all.

Very nice/clean restaurant with friendly staff, the meals were nice and the service was also great.
The Chicken Roja was full of flavour and Lamb Pasanda was a little sweet for my liking, apart form that it was good value.
