Housed in a gorgeous old stone-and-thatch building in Whickham Bank, Swalwell, Jashn suggests a jaunt back in time. Go inside this award-winning restaurant, though, and you’ll see the journey is not into a Newcastle of days gone by but rather to the lavish world of the Indian Maharajas. Colourful decoration, plush furniture and warm lighting evoke excess and indulgence – but the food at Jashn doesn’t leave you with excess cholesterol and a heavy belly. Joshn minimises use of butter, oil, colourings and salt to provide healthy food that does not compromise taste. Pick your way through an elaborate menu of starters (we recommend tamarind samosas and Rawalpindi curry puffs) and meaty or vegetarian mains (the lean duck piyaza curry, with hints of honey and apricot in its creamy sauce, is a particular specialty), or leave it up to the experts and choose Jashn’s Khazana platter (for 4) or all-inclusive Maharaja menu.
Excellent food with superb presentation. Service great as always and given a complimentary glass of wine after being politely asked to finish our drinks in the lounge area as the restaurant was busy and customers waiting for tables. I would recommend booking in advance.
Consistently high standards in both Quality of food and atmosphere. Thanks for another splendid evening. Highly recommended for all special occasions .Thanks to all the staff.
Love this place! Food is fabulous - not your “common or garden” curries although they will prepare them for you if you wish. Staff are very friendly and attentive - nothing is too much trouble for them. Good value too which is an added bonus!
Amazing experience best Indian food ever. Unreal x x x
Yet again another fabulous meal and dining experience at Jashn restaurant. Food and service were exceptional! Mixed kebab starter was cooked to perfection with chicken that melts in your mouth and the chicken pathia main was once again fantastic - love the new plated version! Huge thanks to all, we will be back soon!!
As always great food, great attentive service. Best Indian food I have ever had. Wouldn,t go anywhere else. Took a friend with me and she eats Indian food regularly and she said it was the best she had ever had also. Keep it up Jashn.
Second review and much better food and flavour this time asked for hot and that was exactly what I got but still keeping the taste of the dish and not overpowering it with just adding chilli powder speedier service but that was probably as it was a weekday but food excellent atmosphere fantastic highly recommend if you enjoy hot flavoursome food remember that fresh food takes time to prepare so be patient and enjoy the experience of dining here
