“Best Biriyani in Aberdeen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Ok the outside of this restaurant doesn't exactly look good, but the inside is better. I ordered the lamb Biriyani and must say it was mmmmm. The waitress even asked if I would like it mild, medium or hot. i went for medium and it was spot on. Great quality, full of flavour...this is the place to go for real biriyani. Portion is very generous too. I think the only downside is that when we ordered glasses of water, we weren't given ice. But overall, can't fault the food. Will definitely be back.

“Poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Visited here with family and was not bowled over... I have to say that the food was decent and the ability to bring your own booze could save you a fortune! However we were served by two people that showed no interest in our group whatsoever. They were polite enough, but totally uninterested. Don"t try here if you want attentive, friendly staff!

“Lahore Karahi - The three course review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We recently visited this Pakistani restaurant with friends for an evening meal.

We enjoyed three courses including a mix of starters, mains and desserts. Stand-outs included the fried paneer, tandoori fish and lamb karahi. All dishes were exceptionally good value and served in decent portions. The overall impression of the group was an overwhelming, 'MEH...'

Service was a bit of a disappointment. A little inattentive and disinterested across the board. Inexcusable considering it was pretty much deserted. The restaurant itself was also extremely hot, with no air conditioning or ventilation. A bit of a nightmare after a hot curry.

Would I return? Only if Rishis, Shri Bheema and Ammu's Kitchen closed down and The Blue Elephant delivery driver phoned in sick.

PRO-TIP: We brought our own alcohol and no corkage was charged. Specific glasses will be provided, so please be mindful of the religious aspect and keep your skite out of the restaurant's water glasses.

“Tasty authentic food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Great authentic restaurant serving good food. Ordered a mix grill between two, very large portion! The grilled meat was delicious and complimented superbly with grilled onions on a hot plate. The main was perfect and the sundries were fresh and tasty. Good value for money upon seeing the bill. Service a bit questionable at times, the only negative would say. Definitely worth a visit if your looking for authentic tasty Asian food.
