A South Shields restaurant has scooped a major award and been crowned Best Restaurant in the North East in the English Curry Awards – but Namaste is more than just a place to indulge in award-winning food.

Award-winning Indian food and Prosecco bar in South Shields

The Namaste Restaurant and Kings Prosecco Lounge is one of a kind – offering a complete night out for its customers.

The stylish restaurant, which specialises in modern South Indian Fusion foods as well as traditional curries, can seat around 100 people and caters for all events, such as weddings, hen nights, baby showers etc as well as regular diners. It’s also the perfect place for a Christmas night out or works event.

But what sets it apart is the stunning Prosecco Lounge alongside. Here you can relax in the bar and choose from an unrivalled 10 different Proseccos as well as a choice of cocktails and other drinks.

Take your time to relax before or after your meal – or simply go along for a drink to spend time with friends and family. There’s also an outdoor seating area which is perfect for those warmer days.

Guests can relax for the whole evening and enjoy Sky Sports Live on the screens and there is live music on Friday and Saturday nights.

Namaste was named best restaurant for the North East in the 10th English Curry Awards held this year, which recognises quality Indian cuisine across different regions. This is the third award for the restaurant, which has been open for five years.

The awards are held in Birmingham and Razz Ahmed, of Namaste Exclusive Indian Restaurant, was delighted to receive the prestigious trophy.

“This wouldn’t have been possible without the support from our incredible customers, thank you for all your support!” he said. “Thank you to all our friends and family and a big thank you to the team at Namaste, our front of house staff, and back staff for making this become a reality.”

He explained why the venue, at King George Road, South Shields, is a cut above and can offer the discerning customer something different.

“Because we are not located in the busy city centre, we offer an exclusive, relaxing and chilled-out environment for our customers,” he said.

“We have everything under one roof – it’s something a bit different and means you can stay in one place all night.”

The menu offers all the favourite dishes for those who love a traditional curry, but also offers modern South Indian cuisine. For those who are not as familiar with the tastes of South Indian cuisine Razz explains: “It’s all about sweet and sour, seafood and different flavours. It can be more creamy and it’s more of a subtle spicy taste”.

The owners also have a sister venue in Newcastle – the Namaste Restaurant and Club Prosecco Lounge, at Street Gate, Sunniside, which boasts an impressive outdoor Terrace and was runner up in the awards for its customer service. You can expect the same quality food and drink at this venue, and can order takeaway online for total convenience.
