My absolute favourite lamb tikka with the yogurt sauce has been changed! As has the sauces for other starters and not for the better. Korma was ridiculously bland and chicken was overcooked. Chilli garlic lacked garlic. Peswari nan bread was soggy dough. Service was shocking. Plates taken away before we had finished, waiters appeared on both sides to take away... More

Just what I expect for an Indian. Starters fine but nothing out of the ordinary, ditto main. Naan a bit heavy for me.

Returned here after a good meal about 7 years ago. There was 6 of us so we had pre-booked and it was busy with every table full. We got our drinks quickly with some poppadoms and ordered the mains. They arrived within a reasonable time and were excellent. The cheese naans were lovely and fresh. Big too. The chicken jalfrezi... More

I popped in here for a meal on the recommendation of where I was staying. The food was excellent and the staff very helpful. Started with chicken pakora which was tasty followed by garlic chilli chicken also tasty. All in all, an excellent meal and I'll be back

Having lived in Inverness for most of my life this was always the restaurant to visit, whether to sit and eat or collect a takeaway meal. The quality was never in question and the service was always first class. I left Inverness 9 years ago and I was last at this restaurant in 2010. I revisited on Wednesday 2/11/16 and... More

Visited on 11th October 2016: I had been travelling during the day and so by the evening I was quite hungry. I picked the Rajah for a substantial meal, and was completely satisfied. The quality of the food was excellent, the service was attentive without being intrusive, and the ambience relaxed and comfortable. My one regret about this restaurant is... More

My wife and I have made this our regular special night out restaurant when visiting Inverness. When we returned this year, we happened upon a young man and his family celebrating his 21st birthday. After his mom went about sharing birthday cake with everyone in the restaurant, I could not resist giving the young man a few pounds for his... More

Just home from dinner here - it came highly recommended but the food was okay - not spectacular- waiting staff very good and attentive but the bar staff were very noisy and several times we heard outbursts of laughter from them - did not provide the best atmosphere for a nice relaxing meal. Won't be rushing back.

Went for a prebooked meal 6 adults and one 17 year old. Staff refused to serve the 17 year old with a beer, despite the fact that both his parents were there and happy for him to have a beer with his meal. We googled the legislation and showed it to them but they refused to budge and kept pointing... More

First time we tried this restaurant and we're not disappointed. Excellent food and friendly unintrusive staff. Will definitely be back next time we are in Inverness. Very busy although you expect that on a Saturday night. Would recommend booking. Thanks for a great meal
