I've been here a few times before, but it is now 2 years ago since the last visit. They now call themseslves a "brasserie", I'm not sure about that. To me it still is " a good indian". And they have installed some "bobblewter screens" on the walls, and even in some of the windows. Luckily, we found an off-switch... More

we had a meal here on a Saturday night forgetting that the Highland games were on, so it was absolutely mobbed and staff very stretched, but although we heard some complaints about waiting time we ourselves had no real problems at all, and overall I'd say the staff did a great job in difficult circumstances. Drinks were perhaps a bit... More

The wee lady in the confectioners recommended we went here, and she was so right. The service was excellent and all staff were polite, helpful and well trained to let diners be. The food was excellent and I would recommend anyone visiting Ballater to go here for dinner. The fusion platter was amazing. All in all a great experience and... More

We recently visited the restaurant and had a really enjoyable meal. The service was good, and the food extremely tasty. I am not however sure about the water bubble features next to the tables, in particular the ones that change colour. I actually felt a little nauseous and had to sit sideways on so it wasn't in my line of... More

Having heard a lot of good things about this restaurant, we tried it out a couple of weeks ago and were not disappointed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was quick and efficient even though the restaurant was full. All the food we had was excellent, and I have to say it was very reasonably priced compared to what... More

I went to this restaurant when I was on holiday with my husband. Our friends who live near Ballater, suggested an evening out and they drove us to this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and professional. The food was fresh and tasty and it was a lovely atmosphere. The price of the meal between 6 was very reasonable considering... More

There are two in the town, i have eaten at both, but this restaurant has more than an edge over the other, the choice of dishes is perhaps one of the best i have looked at, venison, smoked duck not what you find at your average asian eatery, and the crockery was very impressive, all attention to detail, and to...

I ate here with my parents while staying in Ballater on a mini-tour of Deeside and Angus. The restaurant is very smart, the service excellent, and the food - mostly importantly! - freshly cooked and delicious. The best Indian meal I have had in a long while.

Excellent Indian restaurant with attentive, friendly staff. Menu is extensive and varied. They focus on flavour rather than very spicy dishes. The decor is good and the service is first rate, all at reasonable prices.
