“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Loved this place - we were in on Saturday the 21st, myself and my partner. It was recommended to us by the owner of The Auld Kirk and we were so glad we decided to dine here. We're not usually big fans of Indian cuisine but this was Indian on a whole other level! Some of the dishes on the menu I'd never even heard of! It was very busy but the waiting staff were so efficient and friendly, especially Omar. He really looked after us well and we enjoyed chatting with him after our meal. Turns out he's leaving which is a loss to the Brasserie but he will be opening his own restaurant in Peterhead which is my partners home-town so we will be popping in for a visit in August!

The food was amazing, very filling and the flavours were beautiful with everything cooked from fresh. Loved the decor and relaxed atmosphere. Inexpensive too! We will be back :-)

“Indian Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We ate here 3 years ago when they first opened the restaurant, the paint was barely dry! We just had to try it again! We were delighted to see how the place looks now, it's beautifully presented from floor to ceiling & the housekeeping is impeccable. "Sid" the manager was very welcoming & his staff were friendly & very attentive. Our food looked & tasted great, we got exactly what we expected. We would recommend the "Lochnagar" to everyone. our only regret was that we didn't eat here early in our holiday, then we could have gone back. What a pity it's 250 miles from home!

“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

This was a good choice, although there are not too many other options for evening dining in Ballater. I had a biriani which I found a little bland but my husband was happy with his vegetable balti dish. The Indian beer was good.

“we had a takeaway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Perfectly ok but a little unexciting . Very little spiciness - a bit bland actually , although portion size was good , cost perfectly reasonable and the staff at the front desk very hospitable

“Our favourite Indian restaurant ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

We moved to Ballater 18 months ago and have been to the Lochnagar most weeks since! The menu choice is varied and the food is consistently tasty and well presented. Congrats to the team on the refurb, the service and keeping our taste buds satisfied!
