Ballater is a charming place so to find a indian restaurant with wonderful service and 5 star food was a bonus. Give it a go you will not be disappointed.

While staying in Ballater I ate here with my family and friends. There was 7 of us. The menu had traditional Indian food but had lots of more unusual interesting options. The presentation was lovely and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff were very cheerful and friendly. The chef came over once we had finished to check that... More

Arrived without a booking on a Saturday night and had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table. When we did get a table we found the service to be quite slow - in terms of taking orders, getting drinks, and finally when food arrived. Food was generally okay but not spectacular, but it was reasonably priced. Waiter did apologise for... More

Don't bother - bad food disguised with good presentation - menu pretentious and mid-leading. Service SO slow given that we were 4 of 10 there!!!

My Husband and I had a beautiful meal on Saturday night whilst staying in Ballater. The food was fantastic and the staff were lovely. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

Visiting ballater at the weekend and decided to eat here after seeing they had won various awards for their food. We were not disappointed. Friendly welcome, lovely choice of menu, proper Indian cuisine, could not fault this establishment in any way. Well deserved awards, and well worth a visit.

We were so happy to come to this place which has great ratings. So: what an unpleasant surprise. 1h10 until one of the waiters, who was very busy folding napkins (although the restaurant was very busy) and ignoring our gestures, finally took his pen and came to take our order. We ate mussels coming directly from the can. Better avoid... More

Mixed feelings really regarding this restaurant. The staff were pleasant and polite, the food was decent but the wait for the main course of nearly an hour and a half was unacceptable. We were in Ballater to watch our friends son who was playing in a band at the Deeside Inn and even though we repeatedly told staff we had... More

This was the most amazing meal ever, I had onion bhaji and king prawn mishty kodhoo and my partner had the sesame lamb. Both meals were beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The service was personal and the award winning chef genuinely interested in our feedback. As it was we couldn't offer any feedback other than 'this was a perfect... More

People rave about this place, and it has won lots of awards, so we thought we would give it a go. Well worth the visit. All the food is cooked fresh and it shows. The monkfish starter was glorious, Helen's Chicken wedding feast dish was "one of the best I have ever had", and she has had a lot, my... More
