“Superb”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Visited this place often, since it first opened, and if you know what home cooked indian food tastes like, its one of the best traditional indian eateries in Newcastle. For starters the mix grill is fabulous, 2 tender/soft juicy marinated tandoori lamb chops, two freshly cooked sheek kebabs one made with chicken mince, the other with lamb mince, and then 2pc of malai chicken tikka (soft white version) and 2pc of normal chicken tikka, accompanied with salad and a yellow sweet sauce. For mains, I normally opt for the aromatic fish curry, which is cooked to perfection, not too spicy and overpowering, allowing you savour the taste. My partner has the chicken karai which also is delectable...the only dish i avoid is the lamb handi...lamb on the bone curry as it gives me stomach problems, the masala is very strong, but for those with stronger stomachs its a sure must. Garlic nans are splendid, I adore the chicken biryani with fried onions on top. The piece de resistance has got to be the home made rasamalai with falooda, light fluffy balls with pistachio nuts in cool refreshing milk. A lovely way to finish a meal off

“Excellent”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Just been here based on the trip advisor reviews. Comfortably one of the best curry restaurants Ive ever been to. Beautiful surroundings, great service and food was fantastic. The starters were some of the best I've had, the only slight criticism I had was that the curry was slightly too oily but please go. Ignore the negative reviews and see for yourself.

“Weird location, excellent food”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Newcastle is still a bit of a a desert for good Indian food, but this was a true oasis. Odd site and name ( is it Japanese / Italian / Indian) but food and service excellent. Some unusual lamb and other dishes as well as the usual favourites. Large portions, clever spice mixes and very pleasant staff. For four of us with popadoms/pickles, one drink each, curry, rice and nans and salad and two kulfis the bill was a reasonable £18. I would definitely recommend to others

“just amazing”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

no cons all pros, amazing menu, a lot of different obscure in a good way choices, great value portion to price ratio, but still so many good flavours, waiter offered really good knowledge about the dishes. So I was able to try something I have never had before. Well done more of the same please.

“Always consistent”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I have visited Luigikhan's several times now, the food and service are excellent. As far as I am concerned there is no better place in Newcastle for a Balti that is brimming with flavor and full of fresh herbs and spices. I will be back, as someone once said. :-)
