“Excellent”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

We are regular diners at this smart Indian/Bengali restaurant at the north end of Birtley, less than half a mile from the A1M and the Angel. The choice and taste of the food is always excellent, all of the staff are really friendly and helpful but not intrusive, and the meals, whilst not cheap, are good value. Even the toilets are clean and welcoming! If you just want to order a take away meal you can have a drink while you are waiting. I have no hesitation in recommending that you allow Nizam or Islam to serve you.

“What has happened?”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

Usually love this place - food, service and surroundings very good indeed, lovely staff. However the last two meals have been really quite poor - chicken dishes almost devoid of chicken and sauce very runny, naan bread very dry. If it wasn't for the rice and onion bhaji would have gone hungry. Poppadoms always good - but not exactly difficult to do. Will give it one last try, then give up and make a good curry at home using fresh spices.

“A hidden treasure”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Visited this restaurant with friends who live in the North East. The restaurant was very clean, service first class, Islam really looked after us. The food was good and plentiful. What a shame that we were the only customers on the Monday evening. Islam ensured we had everything we needed but did not hover which can be so off putting. Well done!
Strongly recommend you give this Indian restaurant a try. You will not be disappointed.

“Can't be bettered”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We eat at Sunarga about 10 times a year because it is by far the best Indian/Bengali restaurant in the area. There is a superb choice on the menu, the beers are well kept, and whilst it is not the cheapest restaurant, it is certainly the best. On Thursdays and Sundays there are fixed price menus. Take-aways are also available every night.
