At Takdir (meaning ‘fate), the principles are simple. Curry unites us. Fate has it, they aim to bring their passion for authentic Indian food, through distinct ingredients and creations, and a desire to continue to evolve and fuse old heritage and contemporary flavours. The Takdir was established in 1979 on the town’s seafront, has doubled in size and bringing a modern twist on their authentic Indian cuisine to form part of the regeneration of Whitley Bay. The business, now in the hands of second generation siblings Mamun and Suffian Rahman who took over day to day operations from their father Mujibur ten years ago, have transformed an empty building into a stylish, glass fronted restaurant. With up to 90 seats, themed on different aspects of the Raj era, rich colours and inspired from the Taj Mahal which reflects some aspects of the dome architecture.
