Despite being relatively local, we had never been to India on the Green - maybe thus was due to the fact that we loved the place in its previous ' fine dining' guise, however we run a self catering property and our guests have raved about the place. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The restaurant itself hasn't changed that much.... More

It was the worst food I have ever had. The food was not as expected and the service was terrible. I think staff in this restaurant have attitude problem. Better to keep away from this sort of people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ordered some food at 19:30, was told it would be 45mins, turned up at 20:15 and was told I had to wait longer. They kept saying 5 minutes more but 45 minutes later I was still sitting there so just left due to the need to feed a starving family. Didn't even get to try the food. Such a shame

Thank you for taking the time to review India on the Green. We are sorry that you were disappointed by our service on this occasion. On the day you visited a gas valve shut down which took 30mins to fix and caused delays to several orders. Our chef called your mobile afterwards and left a message to explain. We do... More

This Indian restaurant was recommended to us as somewhere that serves food that's full of interesting flavours and good quality and indeed that was our experience. The appetisers were a fabulous surprise, really delicious, and what followed took Indian dining to a new level. The prices aren't cheap but we got what we paid for and the food was worth... More

I dropped in for dinner one evening without a reservation, the restaurant was empty when I arrived which initially concerned me but it soon filled up. The service was a little too attentive but this could have been because it was a little quite. The canapés served were delicious, especially the espresso cup of soup, my chicken pathia was also...

After a quick walk round Ballater town centre, I found this Indian restaurant open for lunch. I noted immediately on entering the premises that no-one else was in the restaurant. I generally don't like an empty restaurant, as there is no atmosphere and sometimes this fact signifies poor food or service. I was in a hurry as I had a... More

Thank you for taking the time to review India on the Green and for your positive comments. We are sorry that you were disappointed with some aspects of our service on this occasion. Ballater is quieter at this time of year so you won't find every restaurant packed at lunchtime. The debit card machine problems were of course beyond our... More

As The Green Inn at Ballater was always an exceptional experience in fine dining, this transformation into an Indian restaurant would have to have been out of this world to replace it adequately. It doesn't, but it tries hard. My meal was excellent, and the presentation and extras were also first class. Service was friendly but a little distracted, and... More

Great food with a very good choice of individual dishes that appear unique to the restaurant. The service was pretty good, with a reasonable turn around time from ordering to food arriving. The presentation of the dishes was fantastic. The taste of the food was excellent however. All in all I would return even though I thought the prices were... More
