About The Funky Indian

The Funky Indian in Sunderland is a new take on the traditional Indian restaurant. Playing on that feeling of fun and excitement a group experiences when sharing a feast of epic proportions, The Funky Indian has come up with a super creative Indian tapas menu. Although, fret not, if you balk at the thought of sharing food, because there is a great selection of larger mains on offer as well. Every item on the menu is bursting with all the flavours and textures that you want from a fantastic Indian meal, and the contemporary twist will keep you coming back time and time again. The Funky India can be found on Borough Road right in the city centre of Sunderland, but a mere ten minute walk from the university campus.
