Cold buffet and dirty restaurant very disappointed won't be going again and wouldn't recommend to anyone. Took pictures of dirty radiator that I was sat beside and picture frames, skirting boards and dado rails were very dusty :(

Thought we would try this restaurant via justeat.com. 1. I didnt recieve a confirmation email as hey said I would. 2. I was charged 4 pounds delivery when they advertise FREE delivery (I live less than 1 mile away). 3. They missed an item from my order that I had paid for. 4. The food was not particularly pleasant.

The buffet was ok - good range of choices i guess. The restaurant is very dated looking - really needs a facelift. The service was poor though, if i'm back in Elgin i'd probably try somewhere else before returning here.

Had to wander around the restaurant to find a waiter to be seated. Waiting staff were rather rude and unpleasant. They didn't have the ingredients to make the starter I wanted. The starter was really good. The main course was horrible. I would rather buy a £6 Indian meal for two from a supermarket than eat here again.

Visited this restaurant 25 April. Business lunch appallingly limited. Buffet lunch very limited and not good value. Restaurant was cold. Will not be back. Once was enough.

I was in Elgin working for the weekend and decided to try Al Bahar. I was in the mood for Indian and noticed they had an American express sign on the door. This is good for me as this is the credit card my company uses. I had climbed the stairs to find an empty restaurant. I wondered around till... More

The Al Bahar in Elgin is a very nice place to visit if youre looking for a nice indian meal. The menu is very extensive with a huge selection of dishes to choose from (could be a little intimidating for someone that doesnt know what everything is tho!) The food is of high quality as well and I really enjoyed... More

We always visit the Al Bahar for a buffet lunch when we are in Elgin, but never again. We arrived at 12 noon, the time the restaurant is supposed to open but were asked to wait as we were too early. Not really a problem we were not in a hurry, I was a little worried as it felt a... More

Sunday evening buffet, place was empty apart from the 5 of us. No atmosphere. Place was cold to the point where I kept my jacket on. From my understanding a buffet means eat what you want and as much as you want. Instead a pre-determined selection of starters were given to us which weren't enough so we asked for the... More

Decided to go to the Al bahar tonight with some mates from work, wish we had chosen somewhere else. We opted for the buffet at £12.99, as we were not quite sure what we wanted to eat, so wanted to try a bit of everything. We were shown to our table by surely the most unhelpful waiter ever, everything seemed... More
