“Delicious food and good customer service”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Positive:
Reservation. Ordered drinks, Naga Chilli Lamb Curry, Kadai Murgh curry, and chilli naan and extra chilli salad. Well marinated and infused flavours. Good customer service and atmosphere. A bit pricey.

Negative:
Seating arrangements too proximal to neighbours.

“Always so yummy!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Called in on Sat evening at 10pm & lucky for us booked a table for 10.30pm. I forgot my glasses again so we kindly had a lend of a pair and with the staff's guidance about what we like, we had Lamb chops & King prawn starters which were so lovely. Mains were Railway Curry (Lamb) which was served with rice & Kerala Salmon in a lovely sauce served on potato, they were both gorgeous & garlic nan. You always manage to fit us in pre-booked or not at the perfect time. Thank you all at Dabbawal Newcastle for your great service we always receive and fabulous food (thanks chefs) : )

“excellent food”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We used lunch time menu and felt it had a good choice. I almost regret we didn't try the curry. We shared the Dabbawal grill which was the recommendation for a shared starter. It was lovely variety of meats and salmon lightly spiced and grilled. We then both ordered roomali wraps they were delicious and not to heavy for lunch time meal. All the food was light and tasty. I would recommend this restaurant. I intend to return and try the evening menu.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local and I'm glad we took her word for how good it was. The food was fresh and not heavy or greasy like some Indian food can be. The waiters were very attentive and helpful. Perfect meal out washed down with a nice cold cobra!
