The Vadah Restaurant

Creating a growing buzz since its opening in April 2014, Vadah Restaurant is situated by the Riverside in Stockton

Vadah Restaurant situated by the Riverside in Stockton re-creates traditional Indian cooking with a twenty-first century twist. Vadah serves authentic Indian food, brilliantly presented, with breath-taking Riverside views. Award winning Chef Kaysar Ahmed conjures up innovative delights and elevates Indian cuisine to a fine dining level.

Vadah is an ideal venue for a romantic dinner, corporate dinners, plus for group bookings such as birthday celebrations, anniversaries and more. We at Vadah, continue to focus on raising the experience of Indian fine dining whilst remaining accessible, affordable and most importantly enjoyable.


"We are often asked how the unusual name “Vadah” came about. The answer is really quite simple; it means “a promise”, our promise, to provide the customer with the finest quality foods, a wonderful atmosphere, and excellent service. This is our recipe for success"

Our multi awards winning Head Chef Kaysar Ahmed, who has worked alongside the likes of Michelin Star chef’s Dominic Chapman and Atol Kulcha has been eagerly awaiting to get his menu into the kitchen at Vadah, which he’s been working on since early 2014. Whilst a lot of the dishes at Vadah are new, you will see snippets of what you may have tried before at the Mumbai Lounge in York, Fossgate, but with a slight makeover.

As for the menus themselves - there is a simplified takeaway menu with a 15% discount off the menu prices to be collected only. Whilst there is a good selection of “House Specials” and “Chefs Recommendations” which are from the Dining in Menu only, Kaysar understands the need to make it a competitive but quality offering as his key wish is for Vadah to be accessible to all.

Visited just before Christmas and it was busy. however service was brilliant. food was really good .All 4 of us had a thoroughly good evening. Service was spot on . A high quality restaurant in a rather nice location.


“Amazing restaurant”

I was visiting family in Yarm and they suggested Vadah and we were amazed with the food and service of this place. We had Railway lamb and Chicken Hariyali, with rice and nan. Tender lamb cooked to perfection as was the chicken. The chef is supposed to be Michelin quality.
