Review on Diwan E Am Tandoori
Diwan-E-Am has been delivering the goods in Hexham since 1983, making it arguably the standard bearer for Indian restaurant food to the Tyne Valley. More than two decades down the line, it's still serving up a sound mix of curry house stalwarts with a few individual creations and regional specialities.
The menu covers all the familiar bases with tried-and-tested tandooris, kormas, dhansaks and vindaloos alongside hash satoca (a duck dish from Sylhet flavoured with an indigenous citrus fruit), gosht diwan posond (lamb cooked with ground cashews and pomegranate sauce) and murgh jardaloo a sweet-and-sour Parsee dish of chicken and apricots topped with sali (Indian potato 'straws'). Drink Indian lager or something from the short wine list.
