A popular Indian restaurant has been praised for the first time by The Good Food Guide.

Dosa Kitchen, on Osborne Road in Jesmond, has in the past received recognition from Hairy Biker Si King and a Place In The Sun’s Johnny Irvine.

Now it has made it into what is essentially a food bible - The Good Food Guide.

The guide has praised Dosa Kitchen, which specialises in southern Indian cuisine, for everything from its “super fair” pricing to its “vibrant inclusive” atmosphere.

The review of the restaurant highlighted its namesake dosas, saying that they are “roasted with homemade ghee or stuffed with the house potato masala” and are “big, crisp and shiny, while the parathas are gloriously ragged and the poor is puffy.”

Dosa Kitchen’s “homespun takes on chicken and lamb classics”, along with vegan and vegetarian options were also considered to be stand-out dishes by The Good Food Guide.

Sudharsan Murugavel, the co-owner of Dosa Kitchen, has expressed his joy at the recognition that the restaurant has received.

He commented: “We pride ourselves on offering a really authentic experience and the real food of southern India.

“So to have had this acknowledged by such a prestigious publication is fantastic for us.

“We believe we are the only place in the North East to offer sapaad - a set menu with a choice of vegetarian, non vegetarian and children’s options– where the menu is made of selection of different dishes which cover the six ayurvedic tastes - sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent -accompanied by rice and dosa.
