Best restaurant in Aviemore.

Had great meal on Saturday night. Was very busy. But Shakeil the owner offered us a drink at the bar. After a short wait. We're given a table. The meal was perfect. One of the best Indian meals I've ever had. (chicken tikka balti). The staff were great. Special thanks to Adrian.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere. The staff were all very polite. We had a few questions about the menu; the server was more than happy to help us understand everything. Dishes were brought out in a timely manner and were spaced out perfectly. Everything, I mean everything, was delicious! After ordering dessert, the server brought out complimentary scotch for...

Stopped in at the Royal Tandoori very recently with a family member and ordered two starters and two chicken jalfreezi's. The meals arrived but were not good examples of chicken jalfreezi's, raw chopped onion on top, pastie tasting sauce and not very hot temperature wise. Whereas it was quite edible it was not what we expected. The staff member came... More

If you fancy an Indian meal in Aviemore, this is the place to go, in fact nowadays it's the only one left to go to. I have had a few take- away meals from here and generally they have been quite good, although for the price they charge, which is really quite high, they should be very much better. A... More

great mixed starter, sauces and pickles and palek lamb dish were yummy, wee bit disappointed that they had no keema so took advice and had mixed hot curry which was ok at best. Overall a good curry with pleasant staff and nice atmosphere.

Came here on New Year's Eve and surprisingly, was able to book a place at short notice. This availability didn't reflect in the food, though, which was plentiful, well presented and good quality. The staff were friendly and attentive and the menu contained a wide choice of options from different parts and epochs of India, along with explanations and variations.... More

Eaten here quite a few times and have not been disappointed with the quality and quantity of food. Staff friendly and helpful. Prices sadly too high but then again there is hardly any competition in Aviemore so eateries don't have to drive their prices down.
