“Great value and great food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We returned to Trafalgar after not visiting for a while and were not disappointed. Four of us shared poppadums and pickles, the green chilli pickle is lovely and hot.
Then starters for us all, each was delivered piping hot and all were quickly dismantled. The bhuna prawn on puri looked great and my chicken tikka paneer was up to it previous wonderful standards.
We shared a mushroom and veg pillau and a garlic and peshwari naan between the four of us. Chicken Tikka Korai, King Prawn Dansak, Chicken Achari and (I think) Chilli Lamb Murgh were all tasty and served in large portions.

All washed down by a couple of beers each (Kingfisher has replaced Cobra as the draft indian beer) the bill was a very reasonable £94.

We ate well, in fact we couldn't finish it all. The service was attentive as ever without being too over the top.

Would I eat here again? Certainly. I'd probably remember to bring my own booze to save a few quid but if I forgot the beers aren't ridiculously expensive.

“Great Indian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

In my view this is the tastiest, Indian food in Consett. Buffet nights offer good value for money, only £10 each and it is eat as much as you like, but the quality of the food is not compromised at all. They also offer an extensive menu. There is a bar for drinks or you can take your own!!
Can't go wrong. Take aways are of same quality. I recommend a visit.

“THE BEST INDIANS AROUND!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

I love this Indians my mam orders just about every weekend, they are soo friendly and helpful and we always get little freebies too! We went for a big family meal on Saturday and although they are only small restaurant they deal with big orders very well and never skimp on quality, we ordered a lot of food even though some of us shared dishes or sides etc we still could no eat it all and took some home! Another good thing you can take your own alcohol and they even give you glasses to drink out if meaning its a good deal all round, would recommend to all my friends and family!

“Meal for 2”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Nice little restaurant, the food was nice enough, plenty of sauce with the lamb dish however there was not much lamb also the chicken dish had nice big portions of chicken but the chicken was a bit dry.

Service was quick enough and the dishes tasted great.

“lovely food and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

visited as a party of 7 and we had a lovely meal. the food is amazing and was kept really hot as they put candle heaters on each table with food bowls ontop. you could order a few different things and eat it buffet style as it is served in seperate bowls and you get a plate to put out your own food as you want it. staff were nice but not too attentive so we didnt feel harassed to order more or get lots of drinks. also you can take your own bottles of wine etc so that was a plus for us too.
