Last Days of the Raj - emailA RENOWNED Tyneside Indian restaurant has just re-launched – in a new location and with the second generation of a family dynasty at the helm.

The Last Days of The Raj at Low Fell was a favourite eatery for scores of diners from across the region until it closed in 2012.

The former pub – which has been empty for two years – has undergone a major facelift to transform into a stylish restaurant before opening up this week (Jan 15), creating an initial 12 jobs with more to follow.

“I am delighted that we’ve brought back The Last Days of The Raj to a new location,” said Imran, 28 of Gosforth.

“My father created a fantastic restaurant which was very popular and now I’m hoping to do the same and of course he will still be involved to offer his expertise.

“We are offering many of the favourite dishes that we were renowned for but with a lot of new and exciting choices which we are sure will be a huge hit with our diners.”

The new venue has 68 seats and has a take away service.

“It’s very exciting for us to be open again,” said Mr Khan.

“We’ve had lots of positive response from people who have heard about the new restaurant and we’re looking forward to seeing all of our old clients – and of course many new ones.”

The restaurant is open seven days a week and can be contacted on 01661 598181 for bookings or visitwww.thelastdaysoftheraj.co.uk. An official grand opening is planned in mid February.
