Amazing Indian food. Many, many choices for vegetarians. The spices were subtle and the flavor was intricate. The only negative was that we went for lunch - they advertise being open at noon - but they weren't ready for customers until 12:30.

Our family of four visited this restaurant with two local people. We had reservations so no problem getting seated as six. The amuse-bouche helped set the ambiance of the evening ... it was all fun and sharing of food from there on out. Our kids (15 and 17) had not eaten Indian food in a restaurant before and I was...

We were drawn in from the street by a menu that seemed to offer something extra to the standard list of curries. A nice welcome was followed after ordering by an tasty amuse-bouche (a spicy soup). We began fairly standardly (poppadoms and pickles, pakora + samosa) and then had a couple of house special curries. These house specials were by... More

Hard to fault -- the food was absolutely excellent. The emphasis here is on quality rather than quantity -- we found the flavours of every dish to be distinct and fresh. Not a disappointing mouthful all evening.The food was also beautifully presented. We'll definitely be back when we're next in the area.

Excellent Indian food; in fact some of the best I've ever tasted. Food is modern in style, with balanced flavours. You won't find large portions of scorching hot basic Indian food. India on the Green focuses on quality of taste first and foremost. The ambiance is good and the staff try hard to please. The only criticism I'd make is... More

We visited the Green Inn 2 years ago and were very impressed by the quality of the food and the whole atmosphere. So on coming to Ballater again we decided to book in again. Did not realise it had become an Indian Restaurant but we like curries so gave it a try. The staff are very friendly and service was... More

Had a very enjoyable meal here. Lots of very different choices on the menu and quite expensive at about £14 to £15 main courses but there are cheaper options and I am afraid we were not very adventurous with my husband choosing chicken tikka which came most beautifully presented on a square white dish with an attractive salad garnish. My... More

Stayed in Ballater for a week and fancied an Indian. Surprisingly there are two in such a small place. Looked at both and India on the Green looked the better bet. Restaurant is nice and light and airy, staff extremely attentive. Yes the menu has the usual sauce with whatever meat or fish you fancied, but it also had specials... More
