We have always been sceptical of South Indian restaurants in the U.K. (we are of South Indian origin), but came across Amma by chance when my parents visited Newcastle. The food was nothing less of brilliant in our opinion, and we will definitely be coming back whenever we visit Newcastle.
The staff were very helpful and friendly, but the food was the main highlight. The food is authentic to South India, with no oil whatsoever, but with full on taste. I would recommend the Mutton Varuval starter, and the Chettinad Mutton Curry with parathas as the main course. We also really liked the vegetable fried rice and payasam desert in particular.
I would definitely recommend you visit Amma. The food is distinctly different to other Indian food that Britain would be used to, and makes a nice change as you will discover.
