“Bit disappointed.”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

After reading the reviews on here, we were looking forward to our meal. The restaurant itself was nice and spacious, reasonably busy and the staff were pleasant. We ordered our starters which arrived quickly and the onion bhajis that I ordered were delicious. Unfortunately the rose wine I ordered was not.
Our main courses followed but we both found the chicken to be extremely dry. Overall the meal was ok but coming from South Shields "land of the curry houses" we felt it was under par with what we are used to. Slightly overpriced and underwhelming in comparison.
