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!

Restaurant was busy & staff friendly enough, but the two vegetarian side-dishes I ordered were not particularly great. Within half an hour of eating there, I also became violently ill. Reported incident to local environmental health authorities. Contracting food-borne infection suggests poor hygiene, food preparation and/or storage. Did not expect to get a dose of the Delhi Belly on holiday... More

We used this twice (!) as a takeaway during our holiday in Aviemore. The restaurant was also always busy but we could not get a table! Staff are wonderful, food is absolutely top notch, really fantastic flavours and freshness, and the peshwari naan is just sublime. Yum!

The meal itself was nice, it's always a bonus to see my favourite curry on the menu, the passanda. Don't see it in many places now. I always find Indian to be a little bit expensive for what you get and although not much different here I was happy that it met my expectations. The atmosphere was friendly but the... More

Not a good curry and not value for money. Both my wife and myself were disappointed by the poor quality of our curries. Our drinks were overpriced, I paid £3.45 for a pint of soda water and lime. The nan was tasty but small in comparison to other restaurants.

Great meal, very tasty. We had pakora and various curries between 6 of us. Restaurant was busy but we were still able to get a walk-in table. Staff very nice too.
