This year, Sachins’ celebrates its 40th anniversary as one of Newcastle Upon Tyne’s most-loved and iconic Indian dining spots.

Located on the city’s historic Forth Banks, we have become one of Newcastle’s most revered restaurants over the past four decades, offering authentic cuisine to diners looking for a taste of Punjab in a stylish setting.

Initially, a regular diner at the restaurant, owner, Head Chef and well-known personality Kulmeet (Bob) Arora has been managing Sachins for over 20 years. Bob Arora said, “We are delighted to celebrate our 40th anniversary and continue the legacy. The past four decades have been a journey, and we are proud to continue cultivating a loyal customer base that shares our love for authentic Punjabi cuisine.”

Bob’s commitment to delivering a personal and memorable experience for all diners is at the heart of the restaurant’s success. The authenticity of the food and outstanding service continues to be top of Sachins’ priority list, ensuring that the restaurant remains the go-to choice for those diners looking for something unique.


Bob continued, “Getting to know our customers is important and is one of the job’s perks. We have made many friends over the years and have had the pleasure of serving many famous people.

“We want all our guests to enjoy the Punjabi experience as fully as possible, so we make all our spices in-house and use traditional cooking methods to give our customers a true Punjabi experience”.

Never one to rest on his laurels,  Bob gave an insight into what is new and up-and-coming at the now 40-year-old establishment. Bob said, “Following on from the successful introduction of our Heat and Eat Menu, which gave diners the opportunity to experience Sachins at home, we have recently launched our Gourmet Meal for 2 which brings the small plates trend to Sachins and allows customers to taste foods they might not ordinarily opt for.

“We look forward to welcoming the next generation of diners and introducing them to the world of Punjabi cuisine.”
