Sachin’s Indian Restaurant in Newcastle

Almost 30 years ago, my parents opened Sachin’s Indian Restaurant in Newcastle, England. They named it after me.

The restaurant is still thriving today. Apparently it’s one of the best and most famous indian restaurants in all of England.

I have no personal memory of the restaurant. I was 3 years old when we moved to the US. But I always heard stories about it, like how I would take naps on the third floor.

Thanks to the power of Google search and Google street view, I am able to see my restaurant sort of for the first time.


One day I would love to go back and introduce myself to the current owner.Ā I once had an old menu from the restaurant. I’ll have to search through some boxes and see if I can dig it up.Ā 

They have a nice website. Unfortunately they decided to leave me out of the “About” page. šŸ™‚


  1. Fantastic! I had no idea. Been there several times with work. Just moved away from the city recently. The place does well for itself, always busy, which is impressive when you consider it’s a little out of the way. Very cool!

  2. Oh Sachin, that’s wonderful!! It’s beautiful on the outside; I’d love to see the inside. Hmmm…worth a trip…

  3. I visited the website: It is beautiful. Presentation is very elegant. I will certainly book a table when next I visit England.

  4. I will be going up there in a couple of months…it may be the best Indian restaurant in all of England, but certainly not the "most famous"….lets see if it lives up to its billing….

  6. They retained the name, and changed everything else. And it is a brand new restaurant. ha, ha. (Just pricking you. I do not know the whole story.)A lovely spot for an upscale restaurant, though.
