Quality Indian cuisine

It's strange to go in Scotland to an Indian restaurant, but I do not regret. Nice environment and great curry and tandoori.

We had used this restaurant a few times previously and the food and service was first class, however after our last visit it was pretty obvious that there was a change of staff, and maybe ownership, as the service and attitude of the staff was terrible and the food was even worse. It is the worst Indian food we've ever... More

Aviemore just has a lack of restaurants and this tandoori had a table available. We have been to lots of india restaurants and this one was ok-ish. Food came in pretty quick but most items were just average, meat was ok ish. Staff is friendly (behind a mask) but dont really pay to much attention to their actual guests, just... More

Little shobby restaurant, very unhelpful staff, everything was too much for them, ordered starters which came cold, the main was reheated and the nans where burnt and over done, wouldn't recommend at all, overly priced and poor service, some of the order didn't even turn up 15 mins after we had finished the main, plus tried charging for items that...

A disappointing takeaway with dry, chewy mixed kebab or greasy samosa starters, burnt nan (left over from lunch?) and an odd 'cheesy' oder to my Chicken Balti. We are a good few miles from the restaurant, so taking it back wasn't going to be an easy option. Had we sat in perhaps they would have fixed our issues with the... More

Despite very friendly staff, the takeaway is effectively walking through the middle of the restaurant. I felt massively uncomfortable walking through there in my hiking boots and jacket - whilst other people were trying to dine. The food is appalling. Easily the worst Indian I've ever been to. The rice had 2 hairs in it (potentially more - I threw... More

The restaurant itself was a bit dull and old fashioned, but was very pleased with the food - great peshwari naan! And service was very good.

There aren't really any alternatives for Indian cuisine in Aviemore, this place isn't a bad shout but it's nothing special either. We ordered a range of dishes between 5 of us and there honestly wasn't a huge difference between a number of them. The food is just simply OK.

Food was pretty average. We ordered 7 dishes and they all looked the same!! The service was non-existent and they didn't seem to care. We definitely won't be back.....ever.
