Since we discovered the wonderful food and brill service we are now regulars, our friends even visit from Leeds to eat here. My hubby would eat the ribs every night if he could I prefer enchiladas or chimichangas but there's always some thing good to eat. The buckets of beer are good value and they have a great choice. Nikki makes the experience even better with her lovely personality. Keep up the good work we'll be back soon!

We ate at this restaurant on Friday 3rd June after reading previous reviews on tripadvisor. Wonderful food, friendly, helpful staff and I would definately recommend their sangria, which is made from a pino grigio base - lush!

Have been to Tias a few times and always had a good time. But they excelled themselves at a party we arranged there on a Friday evening recently (happy hour). Over 30 people attending which can just e squeezed into one long row that seems to work really well. We had ordered our food in advance but everything came out as requested and in good time and in a friendly fashio, bearing in mind there were other customers. The food itself is always very good and a thoroughly enjoyable evening took place.

This is a hidden little gem. From the outside it just looks like a fast food place but don't judge a book by it's cover. We've been here now about 3 or 4 times and everytime we come up to Durham it's the first place we think of. The restaurant is a small family run place and so non of this generic chain restaurant stuff. On entering you'll notice it is quite small and compact but that just adds to the charm of it. The food & drink prices are very resonable and on par with todays prices. All the food is freshly cooked and if you want to change the food slightly to how you like it then this is no problem for them. The staff are always friendly and remember us every year when we turn up. The food is always spot on and we have never had a bad meal there. They have drink offers and do cocktails by the jug. Hopefully we will be back there in the next few months and look forward to eating there.
