Coming from Manchester near the curry mile, wasn't expecting much from a tiny village brasserie, but the food was excellent with many freshly prepared and interesting dishes. Very friendly staff who are very appreciative of your visit.

We found this busy restaurant by chance and were lucky to get the last table. The staff were all friendly, the menu extensive & the food very tasty and fresh. The 'wonky' glasses and large china worked really well to complement the excellent food. Definitely recommended - just a pity we live so far away!

There are two Indian Restaurants in Ballater and fortunately I found this one. Set back from the main road running through Ballater it is possible to miss it ,it is a large restaurant with interesting decorations -moving picture walls of coloured water most startling but have to be seen to be believed!! Beautifully set silver service tables ( another surprise)... More

Food is good though prices were a little high. Service was plodding given that they were not busy. Restaurant was a bit hot with no means of cooling the air, including no openable windows.

This is on a par with the Village in Glasgow if you want to taste something different and more varied than average Indian restaurant.. Flavours and service was fantastic. I wish this restaurant was in my home town. Keep up the good work.

Loved this place - we were in on Saturday the 21st, myself and my partner. It was recommended to us by the owner of The Auld Kirk and we were so glad we decided to dine here. We're not usually big fans of Indian cuisine but this was Indian on a whole other level! Some of the dishes on the... More

We ate here 3 years ago when they first opened the restaurant, the paint was barely dry! We just had to try it again! We were delighted to see how the place looks now, it's beautifully presented from floor to ceiling & the housekeeping is impeccable. "Sid" the manager was very welcoming & his staff were friendly & very attentive.... More

This was a good choice, although there are not too many other options for evening dining in Ballater. I had a biriani which I found a little bland but my husband was happy with his vegetable balti dish. The Indian beer was good.

Perfectly ok but a little unexciting . Very little spiciness - a bit bland actually , although portion size was good , cost perfectly reasonable and the staff at the front desk very hospitable
