We really like this place, and have now been 3 times, twice in 2015, and once on a recent visit to Deeside. It is upmarket without being pretentious, and the menu is definitely Indian, but with a bit of a difference. Everything we have eaten here has been delicious. Highly recommended. Worth going out of your way for. Glad to... More

Went as part of a large group on a Monday night in October and was very impressed. The surroundings were very calm and relaxed and the staff welcoming. There was a huge choice on the menu but not just of the standard Indian dishes. There were specials from a number of regions of India and surrounding countries, many of which... More

We found the service to be very friendly and inviting, but confused. I have eaten at many Indian Restaurants, so I wasn't new to the concept. However, the waitstaff seemed to either be distracted by something, and acted rather confused when taking our order, and serving dinner and drinks. The food was very good, and properly prepared. They did seem... More

It is always so nice when you are nicely surprised by a restaurant that surpasses all expectations. The first impression is fresh and inviting, the service was polite, professional and enthusiastic especially on questions related to the food. We were eight and ordered popadoms, a main each with some side dishes to share, all the dishes were nicely presented and... More

Such a shame that we were the only two people there for Sunday lunch. It all felt a little awkward, but we were not disappointed with the food at all. In fact pleasantly surprised having taken a punt on an impromptu visit. We had to wait a while for the main course but it was clear when it arrived that... More

Visiting Scotland for a few days and almost passed by without noticing this restaurant but very glad we did spot it because we have just enjoyed a brilliant meal there. We were told that it had only recently reopened after the flood damage and it was quiet for a Friday evening. It is very tastefully decorated with a lovely uplit... More

As someone who eats a lot of Indian food I didn't expect to find somewhere of this quality in the Highlands (sorry if that sounds condescending!). Tastefully decorated with a large conservatory on the back the restaurant serves all the old favourites plus some interesting signature dishes . Complementary soup and sag dosa . Black olives served with the poppadums... More

We have missed India on the Green in recent visits to Ballater so we were delighted to see it open again. Attractive new decor, a slightly changed menu but still food of a high quality. Each of the many individually-prepared sauces can be eaten with your choice of fish, meat or vegetarian options. Monkfish was especially good. Amuse bouches set... More

Visited just after they reopened in August, nicely refurbished! Had a great meal even with an amuse bouche! First time for a curry house. We had the 2 specials for mains royal Bengal I think it was and three types of fish. We shared and both were wonderful, very different to traditional curries, not greasy just very flavoursome. Thoroughly recommend... More
