amazing service - unbelievable food! Fantastic evening and great to see so many "different" things on the menu! As has already been said - not your average Indian!

Hi auntystellaplease
Thanks for your recent review.
I am glad you enjoyed your recent visit to Sachins.
If you visit us again you must give our Fish Tikka a try, its on our new Spice Trail menu and they are great tasting chunks of monk fish.
We hope too see you soon.
Thanks

“Always fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

Have visited Sachins probably 7 or 8 times now and can honestly say i have never had a bad dish. What strikes you most is the delicious flavours of all of the dishes, always managing to get the right balance of spices so that nothing is overpowering, just very tasty. The staff are very friendly and attentive, without being intrusive, something fellow Indian restaurant Akbars would do well to note. Price wise, it is at the top end of the scale, but when the food is this standard, it is more than worth it. My only gripe would be the very poor disabled access - for most people this would not be an issue, but i feel they could do more to make some adaptations.

All in all, if you want top class Indian food in the Newcastle area - this is the place to go!

Hi Mr3
Thanks for your review.
It was great to read your positive comments about your recent experiences.
We would really like to improve our disabled facilities, due to the age of the building and its listed status we are unable to make the necessary changes.
I hope this dosent stop you enjoying Sachins.
Thanks

“Not your average Indian!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

This was recommended by the guy who fixed the light in the hotel room! He was spot on! The food was delicious. The flavours were unusual and totally different from the run of Indians. We had 2 starters, which included 4 huge chunks of monk fish - more than enough for a main course. It was very busy night, yet the service was quick and friendly. The whole place gave the air of a very well run establishment.

“Best curry in Newcastle, hands down!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

As a self confessed curry lover I can honestly say that Sachins is by far the best Indian cuisine that I have sampled in the UK.

Meals are pricier than your normal curry house, but this isn't a curry house so expect restaurant prices and you won't be unpleasantly surprised.

The food is fantastic, anything from the tandoor is amazing, the starter sharing platter is definitely recommended and also a chicken jalfrezi (the best I have ever had).

Can't wait to go back.

Hi Marc P
Thanks for taking the time to review us.
I am glad you enjoyed your meal. Our Jalfrezi is unique to us and it is a really addictive dish.
If we see you again you must give the Goan Salmon a try as not only does it look great but it also tastes great too.
We look forward too seeing you soon.
Thanks

“excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

I tried this restaurant because it had gotten good reviews, I love Indian food, and it was within walking distance of my hotel. What I really enjoyed about this place was the boldness of the flavors. Indian cuisine is obviously a relatively repetitive flavor profile, but you can taste the chef's confidence come through in his cooking. The flavors were strong without being overpowering. Some Indian restaurants will tone down their flavors slightly to reach a broader audience, but not here and I loved every bite of my meal. My chicken (murg makhani) was extremely tender and moist (not tough from overcooking in sauce all day) and the prawn appetizer (chilli chingri) was fantastic. I highly recommend.
