We were made to feel welcome the whole time we were there despite being on a groupon voucher. Some places look down on those using vouchers.

The food was really tasty from starters to mains to desserts. Can't fault it at all.

The mocktails were pretty tasty also.

We will definitely be returning soon

We expected the place to be packed but there were only a handful of diners when we arrived at 9pm on a Saturday night. Lovely staff, starters really good as were some of the mains we tried. Very good value for money and surroundings were really nice. Will definitely return and hope this little restaurant does well.

We went in a group of four and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff. The starters were excellent especially the chicken tikka and spiced lamb chops. However the main courses were swimming in oil and not too appetising. This is a small buffet but very reasonable in price. Its worth a visit for the starters and sweets alone. Try it.

Went upstairs into a very comfortable looking restaurant, taken to a table and told to help ourselves. With a good selection of dishes which when tried were very tasty, was also encouraged to go back as often as we liked, which we did. Finishing with a lovely sweet, this for me was a good deal all round. The restaurant is unlicenced but we were allowed to take in our own wine with a 10% corkage charge which for me took the place of the tip.

Went here for with a groupon deal and wasn't sure what to expect. It's small compared to a lot of buffets but has pretty much everything the larger ones have but in a cosier setting.

The food tasted great but I do agree with some of the other reviews that they could do with less oil as a lot of them had separated and didn't look all that appetising. Some of the dishes also lacked a lot of meat in them but this could have been other customers taking a lot of it. They replenished the dishes often and they were quite often fresh out and really hot. Even the older ones still had a good temperature.

Staff were really nice and friendly and I didn't feel second rate being a groupon customer which often you do. Not a lot of staff but it's a small place and they were attentive and kept on top of everything.


All in all its a good priced buffet with good food. The dishes had all the favourites but also some interesting things I hadn't tried before and I think the value for money is much better than other Indian buffets in newcastle.
