Tripadvisor Awards 2022: Newcastle eateries named in top UK restaurants

The annual Tripadvisor Awards have been released, including a Newcastle restaurant named amongst the list.

Tripadvisor have released their annual round up of the top restaurants in the UK, with one Newcastle eatery earning a high ranking within the list.

The 2022 Best of the Best Restaurants are calculated based on the quality and quantity of traveller reviews and ratings for restaurants on Tripadvisor collected from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022, specific to each award subcategory, as well as an additional editorial process.

The lists are broken down into four different categories; the best places in the UK for a date night, the best places in the UK for fine dining, the best everyday restaurants in the UK and a collection of hidden gems found across the UK.

Stylish Indian, high quality cuisine in a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Many will be familiar with the original Simla restaurant which has been within our family since 1981.

The Simla was totally renovated a few years ago and now has a refreshed look and feel and an updated menu.

The cuisine harks back to long established and fresh ways of preparing dishes without any pretence or gimmicks.

The menu is carefully crafted and reflects Simla’s deep appreciation of historically significant dishes from throughout the Indian subcontinent.
