Service was really good although we did end up being the only 2 people left In the restaurant so we got 100% of their attention. Decor was... More

Only Indian we hadn't tried in Inverness and now know why. Ordered a takeaway and as well as being more than expensive then other restaurants, the quality was poor. From the first taste of stale poppadum it didn't get better, lacked taste and although just a takeaway will not entice us to try this restaurant again.

Have eaten here on a few visits to Inverness. Usually quiet mid week. Helpful staff and good food. Well worth a visit.

Pleasent, friendly, attentive staff. We have dined here a few times now and the lamb dishes are tender, succulent and mouthwatering. I can't understand why there isn't a que outside to get a seat.

To be honest we'd tried to book into another, recommended, Curry house but it was full so we chanced this. It was very quiet, worryingly so, but we were hungry. The staff were great and the food was genuinely excellent. When we left there was no one else there at 8pm on a Saturday. Don't understand this as the food,... More

It makes up in good food and service for the poor hotel we stayed in down the street. Very nice and recommended. Changed my negative mood to positive. Thanks. Cobra beer with their tandoori is lovely.

And we were not disappointed . The... More
