My boyfriend and I have eaten here a few times when in Ballater. Although the restaurant may not look like much from the outside, the food is really tasty and the staff are very polite and attentive. Both of us have always enjoyed our meals when eating here. Good quality indian food that we would recommend.

Very enjoyable indeed. My 2 kids went for the old favorites, tika masala, which did seem a little over sweet but they enjoyed... More
