Indian food is always up there among the favourites with diners up and down Britain, and those in the northeast are no different. They love a curry in Newcastle – usually as spicy as they come – and down on the Quayside, they have an option that is as fire-friendly as any around. Dadyal Restaurant on Howard Street is easily accessed from Manors – railway or metro will do – and when you get there, brace yourself for an Indian feast to remember.
Newcastle is known all over for its superb nightlife, and for the Geordie nation, there are few better ways to get an evening out in town underway than with a top-notch curry. There are Indian restaurants all over the city, and down in the Quayside it’s no different, with plenty of spice shacks and jalferezi joints to begin your evening’s revelry. On Howard Street, they go for Dadyal Restaurant as a matter of course, and we don’t blame them: their take on the cuisine of the subcontinent is superb.
You can get to Dadyal with ease – the closest train station is Manors, but you can also get to Howard Street via the iconic Millennium Bridge – and when you’re in this part of the Quayside, you are going to be confronted with an array of Indian options to eat. While the tandoori specialities and classic curries speak for themselves, we recommend taking on their Punjabi delicacies, such as the mutter keema – minced meat with peas and spices – or the achar gosht, with mutton and, well, more spices. Make sure you book a table before you get there though – they can get busy!
Great spicy food and service. We had to pay for parking. Prefer freshly chopped tomatoes and onions for popadoms when paying £1.80 for each popadom and £3.70 for the pickles. The rest of the food fabulous. 😊
