Indian Restaurants in Gateshead

 Enjoy classic and contemporary Indian dining in Gateshead restaurants

Indian restaurants have been a key part of a night out in Gateshead for nearly half a century. The availability of Indian cuisine in the UK soared in the 1970s, with a substantial influx of Bangladeshi immigrants. As in the rest of the country, most Indian restaurants in Gateshead were opened by Bangladeshi families. Menus combined Bengali cuisine with dishes adapted for local tastes. Traditional dhansak, bhuna, and korma sauces came from Persian-influenced Moghul cuisine, but the ever-popular tikka masala was an entirely British creation, combining tandoori chicken with a bright, rich sauce.

    Discover the wide variety of Indian dishes in Gateshead

    There are still plenty of old-school Gateshead Indian restaurants, catering to a loyal clientele who enjoy the rituals of poppadom starters with chutney, familiar curries and delicious side dishes such as bhajis, pakora, and charred naan breads. For many Tynesiders, visiting Indian restaurants is an indispensable part of the town's nightlife, with the challenge of tackling a spicy vindaloo or phall curry all part of the fun. Fashions are changing though, and gradually the familiar Bangladeshi restaurants are being joined by new establishments offering alternative types of Indian dining.

    Gateshead restaurants offer modern and regional Indian cuisine

    Diners have discovered the variety of authentic Indian regional cooking in recent years. In Gateshead, South Indian, Keralan, and Punjabi restaurants offer alternatives to the established Bengali dishes. These cuisines have plenty of lighter dishes on the menu, and a wealth of attractive vegetarian dishes that reflect the substantially meat-free diet of some regions of southern India. There is also a move away from the ornate, dark decor of the traditional Bangladeshi restaurant towards brighter, minimalist decor, creating a relaxed, informal atmosphere.

    Try sharing plates and lunch specials at Gateshead Indian restaurants

    Formerly an industrial town, Gateshead's recent redevelopment, and the stunning architecture of the Baltic Centre for contemporary art and Sage concert venue overlooking the Tyne, have made it a popular tourist destination. Local restaurants provide ideal choices for a light lunch in-between sessions of cultural sightseeing. Many of the Indian restaurants in Gateshead offer set lunch menus, or a selection of sharing plates, allowing you to try several dishes on the menu.
