Best Indian restaurant in Scotland

We keep coming back to this favourite which always offers great and tasty food along with a pleasant staff and ambience in a tastefully modern décor room, no hurry and no hassle to move you on and time to sit and enjoy the river views from the admittedly small windows. Recommended is the Chilli... read more

Food was poorer than we have had previously, which was a shame as have always had lovely food previously. Service was slow. Had to wait for drinks, and repeat orders were slow. Felt rushed to leave at end of meal.

Booked for 10 people on a Friday night. Service was fine as the place was not full. Staff were pleasant and took drink orders with a smile. There was some consternation when it came to ordering main courses as the staff member would point you away from what some people wanted and made other suggestions. Fine if you are looking... More

Saturday night order a King Prawn Rezala - came with only FOUR prawns. When you pay the extra for King Prawns would expect more than four. Plenty sauce which was tasty but ended up helping myself to my partners curry.

I have lived in Yorkshire, Cumbria & now Scotland , in each location I have indulged my love of Indian cuisine. The Sampan ( Blairgowrie) in my opinion is by far the best Indian food I have ever been served.The lovely typical aromas tease your taste buds on entering the restaurant up to the point where you are served your...

Lukewarm, watery and tasteless! Despite asking for dish to be improved, I was still charged full price for what was basically lihgly seasoned pale lentil soup masquerading as a curry. Service was dire, despite being nearly empty. Would NEVER go back. No attempts were made to improve my meal. A discount would have gone a long way to even considering... More

The very finest curry house in this - or indeed any - town! And we are confirmed curry heads. Order times for takeaway reflect the popularity at peak times...so think ahead. It's worth it!

The restaurant on a dull dreich night looked a bit like a dodgy nightclub from outside, but inside was well lit spacious & recently decorated, not quite as cheesy as some. The staff were very friendly and helpful and created a very laid back relaxing atmosphere, they were helpful,engaging and genuine. The food was cooked to order in an area... More

Be it sit in or take away, the food is always delicious. The only Indian restaurant in the town but it's always good so no issues here!
