As ever a splendid dinner - but the reason I'm doing this review is to applaud the EXTRA special service given . We love Mango Chutney,but,due to a delay in that day's deliveries there was none available. Most restaurants would have said -sorry and left it that. But not Lasun - the chef created his own Mango Chutney on the... More

Just a passing visit. Hadn't ever heard of Lasun, but nipped in whilst walking home. Initially it was for a takeaway (they offer the same menu for takeaway customers), but the restaurant was quiet and I was offered a seat. Very lovely surrounding and atmosphere. Food arrived promptly and well presented. Both courses were my regular takeaway options, so not... More

Enjoyed a very nice curry at LaSun, the service was friendly and it has a nice, relaxed atmosphere. I thought it was pretty good value! Would recommend. Better than lots of places I have been to.

I have lived in shields all my life and been to every curry house on Ocean road but this has blown them all out of the water!!! Best curry I have ever had in my life! I had the kebab starter and a garlic chilli main. Staff couldn't have been more attentive, after finding out I loved garlic they gave... More

Says to me they had mucked up). I'd rather burn my money than... More

Another amazing meal at this very popular restaurant. Everything about the place is faultless. Great food, lovely décor and fantastic staff. Oh, and the wine, don't forget the beautiful Rose wine! My King Prawn Dupiaza and Onion Rice was delicious and the wife's Chicken Vindaloo was 'outstanding'. If you want a great Indian food experience, then this is the place... More

This is an unusual area for a restaurant and yet it's quite a popular one. We've been twice and really like the food and atmosphere. Will be going again!

This place has to be the best in south shields. Was there 24/07/16. Totally amazing from the starters, main course the full lot. I've been probably 10 times now and every time it has been fantastic. Staff are polite and attentive, food is out of this world and reasonably priced. Cobra beer on draught is fresh and nice. Can't give... More
