A great bunch of guys here, friendly, chatty and attentive. Around £90 pounds for 2 courses with wine and coffee for the 4 of us. Lovely food with a chicken and spinach balti dish worth a mention. **** Just to say easy access for a wheelchair user like myself

So pleased I stumbled across this gem of a place. Was looking for a takeaway that I could have being a coeliac and was pleasantly surprised that I could get one here. The gentleman I spoke to asked of my allergies and then suggested a chicken tikka masala and pilau rice. It was beautiful. So tasty and succulent. Thank you... More

Hidden in the highlands of Scotland is an Indian restaurant that boasts one of the few five star reviews I have ever given for any eating establishment. It absolutely blew us away! The menu is fabulously pleasing for any taste, the food is faultless, and the staff are second to none. Complimentary drinks of our choice on the house to... More

I was pleased to get a table on a busy Saturday night at short notice. Friendly welcome though we had to wait a short while for our table (max 5 minutes). Menu extensive and reasonably priced. Plenty of vegetarian options. Quality of chicken in food was excellent and vegetable side dishes delicious. The chicken Shashlick was really good and unusually... More

Food arrived swiftly and looked visually amazing and it... More

Very friendly staff, the Lochnagar has an excellent menu with a wide choice of starters and mains. I had a fish main made from monkfish, a huge prawn and scallops, delicious. The other main we chose was a leg of lamb Indian style. Very tasty and excellent quality. Definitely worth a visit.

What a lucky find - superb food all round - couldn't fault a thing! The spiced monkfish mela and lamb tabah were particularly tasty. The staff were friendly and service efficient even though it was very busy. Fantastic little restaurant.

Ate here twice in three days and they managed to accommodate our group of six each time. Can’t fault the food or the service. Best to book a table as it gets busy.

Thank Peter B
