I had a fantastic takeaway from here, so much so that I actually phoned them back to compliment them. The food was devine, can't remember when last I enjoyed a takeaway so much. I tried a new dish as well that I will absolutely have...again, paneer makhani, as well as my normal lamb bhoona, my husband also agreed his was lovely as well and was worth driving the extra distance.More

It’s a pretty good Indian, I wouldn’t call it basic but I wasn’t blown away. The prices are good too. I wasn’t impressed with how our order was £90+ and we got 1 popadom...it was fairly obvious by the 4 main courses that there was...more than 1 person eating and I think if you’re going to throw in a free popadom make it worth it? We looked at the menu after this and realised they’re only 0.75p so I don’t think it would kill them to throw an extra 3 in for an expensive meal! I just didn’t see the point. The peshwari naan is amazing! The korma has a hint of spice for a korma which was odd but still tasty, although the lamb was slightly dry. Onion baji’s are amazing and I love they have skinny fries as their chips. I would recommend it was about £20-£25 per person so not too bad but I wasn’t blown away.More

The best Indian Restaurant and takeaway in Inverurie and the best in the North East in my opinion. The best Naan I've ever had. Would highly recommend the Bhuna.

We did a takeaway on a Saturday night. Our expectations were high due to great reviews on Tripadvisor and we weren’t disappointed. Good portions of food all freshly prepared and prices acceptable. I personally had the chicken Madras which was described as hot and it...was, no complaints there. Although being chilly hot, it didn’t destroy the tastiness of the meal so the description was spot on. Can highly recommendMore

I went to this restaurant for lunch on the basis of the many excellent reviews given. I found that the food offered on the lunch menu was of average quality but this may be very different when selecting from the dinner menu. I had an...onion Bhaji as a starter and ordered a couple of papadoms which came with a selection of mixed pickles which I hadn’t asked for and when I got the bill these were charged as an extra cost. The main course was a Lamb Balti served with pilau rice. This was a tasty dish but was let down as the lamb was not tender. The cost of the meal was just over £16 which I felt was a bit high for what I ate. I was the only person in the restaurant for lunch which was a bit unusual. I would hesitate before returning to this restaurant or recommending it to others.More
