Great Recommendation

A colleague recommended this restaurant and I can see why. We were there on a busy Thursday evening. The chicken dishes we selected were beautifully prepared with a clear and accurate guide to level of heat. I will be back.

My partner, her family and I are regulars here - never go anywhere else for a curry other than Jewel in the Crown in Aberdeen. Service is amazing, top bunch of guys run the place, food is amazing, very reasonably priced - what more can you ask for? Can't wait for the next visit.

We headed here on a Tuesday night expecting to find no-one there. When we arrived almost every table was full and we grabbed the last table there was. Varied menu. Service was very good and food was above your normal curry house. Would really recommend this place but if Tuesday night was anything to go by, I would presume you... More

Superb food, cozy atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. Just had a Xmas meal here and was not disappointed, they were easily able to cope with a full house without compromising food or service which I thought a great achievement for Xmas day !!

We had a great dinner in the Jewel in the Crown. The service was very good and the food was very tasty. The restaurant itself is very nice with a relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend for anyone wanting Indian food in Aberdeen to try here.
