This is the best Indian food I've had in Aberdeen. Never had a bad meal here. The lamb and curries are especially good and the naan is fantastic. The staff is great and really makes you feel welcome. Highly recommended.

This family run long run Indian restaurant must be busy because it knows how to please! Excellent authentic spicing my Jalfrezi was spot on with the right amount of kick! The best Tandoori Lamb chops! And OH the Gulab jamun made in house! Such a good night!

Aberdeen prices, but it serves the tastiest Indian food in Aberdeen. I like to eat here at lunch time as you can always get a table, the evenings are busy so it is best to book.

I entertained a group of seven people plus my self recently and everyone was delighted with the food and the friendly and helpful service we received. I have never been disappointed in this restaurant. If you like Indian food it's very good and the service is fantastic.

It was our first time in this restaurant after friend's recommendation. We like Indian vegetarian cuisine and JitC was perfect choice. We order a lot because we wanted to taste as much as we could and it was so tasty that we left nothing but big tip. ;) Service was very good, waiters quick and kind. Good value for money.... More

Best Indian food I ever eaten. Service was excellent. Decor was good but carpets were very dirty. This did not spoil my dinner. If you are in Aberdeen and like Indian food then you really should visit.

I had not been for over a year but the staff were friendly and the food was as I remember. The nan breads are large enough for two people. We tend to just have a main course as the portions are large.

We love the food here, the best onion bhaji I have ever tasted. We were here on a busy night and the staff were running about daft, however the food is truly amazing and worth the money.
