Fantastic quality food, huge portions and lovely restaurant! Staff are incredibly attentive (but not too much so) and nothing is too much trouble. We travel from Durham just to go to Dilshad!

We rang to order at 19:45 on a Friday and got a prompt answer, so that was a great start! The lad on the phone was very polite, releated everything back to me, calculated the price without me needing tl ask and also gave the maximum delivery time to manage our expectations. We asked if the driver could ring instead... More

We decided at the last minute to go for a meal in Ocean Road on New Years eve, and a lot of other people must have had the same idea as everywhere was full and already booked . Most restaurants had increased their prices by at least £5 and some had doubled their normal prices. We scoured the street and... More

I actually had a take out from here. I had the chef special mixed kebab with pilau rice. Not bad at all. My partner had a king prawn dish of which the king prawns lived up to expectation! I would heartily recommend the mushroom puree on bhuna as a starter. The food arrived hot and fresh. Ocean Road is full... More

This is a Bangladeshi Family owned restaurant - where the waiters are friendly, helpful to the Brother's high standards. No alcohol is served, there are several notices advising their customers before you enter the restaurant, but this means that the fantastic food can be totally appreciated. The competition of Asian restaurants in Ocean Road South Shields means that the food... More

We visited Dilshad early on Saturday evening, there was only one other couple eating, while the other eateries on Ocean Road were already busy. There are reasons for this, the elevated front windows means that you can't see in, they don't serve alcohol, and the food is expensive and really quite average. They do have a very competitive set menu... More

First off to note they don't sell or serve alcohol which was embarrassing as I had already seated. The set menu has lots of added extras which add up money wise , chicken breast, chicken tikka etc. Chicken tikka main was served with salad which is same price as plain rice but wouldn't swap. Very quiet night and inflexibility combined... More
