This was our first visit to Cafe India and as infrequent visitors to the Highlands we have experienced some fairly patchy curries over the years. No such problems here though as this curry house rivals many on the Curry Mile - Rusholme.
We booked a table for Sunday evening and although we would have probably gotten in without the booking there were plenty of people in there. I would say that booking for Fri/Sat in the season is a must. We were greeted at the door and taken straight to the table. A drinks order was quicky taken as we perused the menu. The menu has many curry house favourites including: Bhuna, Jalfrezi, Balti, Biryanii, Rogan Josh, Pasanda, Madras of course ........ Vindaloo. It also includes house specials and some of which I had never seen before. All in all, something for everyone - from mild to spicey and a small English section.
We orders starters of Chicken Pakora and Sheek Kebab. Main courses of Lamb Pasanda, Fruity Chicken and Kairai Chicken with rice, chips, mixed vegatables and chapati. All the food tasted so fresh. Quality meat in delicious sauces. The Kairai sauce was one of the best that I have had! The portions are generous so we did not have room for desert.
Service was top class. The guys were smart, quick and efficient and had a great sense of humour - sometimes lacking in an Indian restaurant.
The total for three people, including popadoms and 2 rounds of drinks was £76. We felt that this was good value for the quality of the meal. When we are next in Dingwall, this place we be at the top of our eating list.
