excellent service & never had a bad meal in here in 15 years. Only thing I would say is that the menu also hasn't changed in 15 years that I've been dining here, it would be nice to see new dishes once in a while.

We managed to book a table on a Sunday evening at fairly short notice although the place was quite busy. We were welcomed by a cheery member of staff who fancied himself a bit of a... More

Last minute decision to book a table last weekend and were lucky to get one. I thought the staff were lovely and very efficient. The food was very good and some nice changes from the usual Indian menus. There was so much we asked for a doggy bag and left with a well wrapped bag of leftovers delivered with a... More

He also had to be reminded that we were waiting... More

Very nice meal, food well presented and very tasty. Kingfisher and Cobra lager both served on draught. Good value for money, certainly worth a visit if you're up in Aberdeen

I live nearby and regularly pick up takeaway from this restaurant. The staff are very courteous- they will even carry your delivery up to the street for you, which is a nice, old fashioned touch. The food is truly excellent and therefore this restaurant is always busy, even midweek. Book ahead!

My friend and I dined here on a Saturday evening in August 2014. The food was lovely, no complaints there however the service was ropey. We were left waiting at the front door for 10 minutes before being served, once served the waiter gave us the wrong drinks, then took us starters which we had not ordered. Both mistakes were... More
