Nice but expensive

We ordered chicken pakoras each for our starters, this was more than enough and we would have been ok with one. Service was fast and the waiter polite. A large selection of things we haven't tried before but expensive for what we had? It was still lovely and full of taste and nice interior.

I usually sit in this restaurant but got takeaway this evening. Usual high standard! Portions are very large, full of flavour, meat succulent. Prices slightly above average but this is the norm of the village.

I've eaten here several times when staying in the area. I would eat here more if it were a bit less expensive! The food is excellent - even though it sometimes does not quite match the description in the menu. The meat is always high quality and very tender. The service is friendly and efficient. The servings are fortunately generous,... More

We ate there on NYE and they managed to squeeze us in as we hadn't made a booking until that day. We ate quite late, 9.30 and the restaurant was very busy. The food itself was ok, we had a mixed grill to share as our starter which was lovely, but then we had a chicken bhuna and I had... More

Just visited here with my boyfriend whilst we stay in the highlands. The staff are very friendly and service was good, very chilled out atmosphere. Food itself was delicious, I had a king prawn dish with great big juicy spicy prawns and my partner had the jalfrezi which was also lovely. Would visit again.

Landed new years eve and hadn't booked. They managed to get us a table as we had tried many of the restaurants in aviemore. Food was nice, I have had better Indian meals but made us feel very welcome at short notice at a busy time of year.

After walking around Aviemore for nearly a hour in the rain we found this great restaurant. Not the best service but authentic Indian food. Not too expensive and had a laid back atmosphere. Would definitely go back!

Really good basic no frills Indian cooking done well and for not a lot of money. The menu is a dilemma as there are a lot of great things to choose from, but settled on sharing the Jalfrezi and the Chilli Garlic - both of which were stupendous. The food is obviously freshly made and bears no resemblance (thankfully) to... More
