Visiting my elderly mother in Aberdeen, we had been suggested to visit this venue, and were pleased to note the high ratings on TA. Table booked for early Saturday evening – no problem. Restaurant seemed very clean on arrival, although the table felt a little cramped. Let me say now the food was mostly very good – starters and mains... More

This is a little piece of heaven from the décor, atmosphere, staff and definitely the food, my husband will try anything and the waiter picked an absolute winner. You would have to book to guarantee a table but you can go and wait. The staff are very helpful

We were persuaded to try this restaurant following some excellent reviews Tripadvisor - and we weren't disappointed. Very authentic menu incorporated some of the best Scottish produce, with a very Indian theme. The food was great and very tasty too. A special mention also to the staff (Jay and Russel) who were very welcoming and professional, and had a lovely... More

This Indian restaurant excels in customer service as well as food standards. They cater extremely well for intolerances and can advise what dishes best suit your individual tastes. The staff go out of their way to accommodate you and cannot do enough for you. The poppadoms come with the best selection of chutneys / onions I have had and their... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant and we were very glad to have made the return trip. Four of us enjoyed one of the best Indian meals we've ever had - the freshly cooked food was uniformly delicious and the waiters were excellent, especially Rasel (I do hope I have spelt his name correctly!) who looked after us...

We are on honeymoon in Ballater and choose to eat here because of the favourable reviews. Maybe we were just unlucky with the customer service ? We arrived having made a booking earlier that day to find that no reservation had been made ?? Good start. We sat down and were offered poppadums by the waiter, at which point I... More
