I'm not really a fan of Indian food so wasn't too enthusiastic when it was suggested that we go for a meal here.
The restaurant is located in Jesmond and its at the back of office buildings , next to a pub and a car park. It's quite a novelty though and once you get here you can spot it straight away as the restaurant is a railway carriage.
The food was very light and not stodgy and greasy like some Indian restaurants serve. The meat in the dishes we ordered was lean and seemed to be good quality. My chicken tikki starter was on the small side but I was glad as the portion size of my main meal was very large!!
The restaurant was very clean and décor was light and airy... although the white table linen did not stay white for long at our table!!
The service was extremely slow and waited a long time in between courses. Also it took us 20 minutes and 3 times asking the same waiter to get the bill.
I went for a lunch time special which was £10 per person for two courses so the food is very reasonable. Drinks are also very well priced a bottle of house white came in at £10 which is not excessive. I did enjoy the meal and although Indian isn't my favourite cuisine I would go back to this place.
