Good service and a great selection of Indian Food. Recommend the tandurie chicken for a main course and the selection of starters for 2

Well I don't know what has happened since my last visit but last night was truly awful, such a shame. Two of us ordered totally different dishes so it was not even a bad choice on my part, but neither dish even resembled a curry. There was not a hint of any Indian/Asian spices and all the chicken was most... More

Our go to restaurant anytime we're in the area, quite honestly my favourite Indian restaurant. The service has always been excellent and the food... delicious! I would recommend the prawn cocktail for starter and chicken tikka masala for main. The restaurant itself is lovely to sit in and I love the atmosphere not only in the restaurant but just that...

Had takeaway from here last night, and it was by far the worst Indian food we have ever had! The mains were swimming in oil, the rice was dry, and the naan was burnt on one side. As its the only Indian restaurant in Aviemore, there's not much competition! But will never go back here!!

Welcoming establishment with a reputation for good Indian food. Extensive menu of food and drink and always tends to be busy. Carry-out service and lots of car parking the area

We got a takeaway from here which was simply not good enough. On the plus side: the poppadums and chutneys (the unusual yellow raita rather pleasant), nice okra bhaji and peshwari nan. The Lamb Moghul Shajon, a Southern Indian dish, was the highlight of the meal. But the creamy dishes sound nicer than they are. The Chicken Tikka Moghul Honey... More

Met a couple of buddies here for a catch up. We were told there would be half an hour wait, but when we were shown to our table there were at least 4 other tables empty and no one had left! The food was pretty bland - I had lamb tikka masala and it was hard to find any taste... More

Food was very bland, just not to our tastes. We now go to the Indian takeaway in Grantown on Spey, much tastier and more consistent with their food. The staff are friendly and do try hard, however the food we feel is just not up to scratch, so as mentioned, we now give it a miss!

The royal tandoori is one of those restaurants that you never get bored of! With so many options lovely staff and great quality food you can't beat it! Amazing restaurant would recommend it to anyone! And if you have children who don't like indian food they can have something off of the European menu!

Thank Nathanross05
