Zeera Indian Cuisine on Ocean Road in South Shields is celebrating this week after winning the much sought-after Prestige Awards.
Beating hundreds of competitors to become the Indian Restaurant of the Year, Tyne & Wear, Zeera will be presented with their award at a glittering ceremony in the New Year.
On receiving the news of the award, business owner Sha Choudhury said: “What an absolute honour it is to receive this award. We are absolutely delighted. It’s a lovely thing to receive, especially after the horrendous 18 months we’ve just endured and can’t thank the judges at Prestige enough for highlighting our restaurant as the worthy winners.”
The award-winning Zeera is renowned in the region for offering the finest gourmet Indian food in opulent contemporary surroundings.
This family business attracts diners from across the region who come to enjoy sumptuous Indian dishes that blend ethnic cuisine with a modern and progressive presentational twist.
A trip here will result in a unique and memorable eating-out experience in their luxurious and contemporary Bollywood-style dining areas.
Never compromising on service or taste, foodies can enjoy a selection of mouth-watering dishes. Start with the likes of Kathi Kebab (£5.70) diced tender roasted lamb, tossed with onion and tomatoes well spiced and served in butter chapati, accompanied with Kathi sauce. Then, team up with the creamiest Chicken Tikka Masala around (£8.35) with Garlic Pilau Rice (£3.95) and mop up the leftover sauce with a fluffy Keema Naan (£3.40).
Seriously delicious cuisine and a well-deserved winner!
