Im very happy to hear you was happy with our food, we are in a small town and this is only a small business at the moment which is why we have not invested in a card machine yet

I had visited and the food that had been served had been so delicious i can not even express the quality, it was so good and had many many spices and you can taste the quality and how hard they work to make the food,...i had sat in with my family, it was very busy as it was packed, u hasn't reserved a table which wasn't the smartest move i must admit, but the very friendly waiter assisted me i gave me a table that had been free among all the occupied ones, it was very nice, with a nice and modern grey interior, very very nice toilets, clean as-well, the food came and it was just soo good! Would 100% recommend this. Their portion sizes are very big as-well, and their menu had many options to choose from, they offer a wide variety of starters, from classics such as chicken pakora, to things like chicken chat puri which i liked immensely too, they have different sorts of mains, such as such as chicken balti, this was something i had ordered and it tasted so scrumptious, we had also ordered a butter chicken which is such a classic but soo good curry for my younger son, it wasn't spicy but was nice and buttery as you would expect, so it was very nice and perfect for him. We had some other curries as-well that the nice gentleman had recommended to me, which was soo mouth watering. In addition to all of this, we also had some rice dishes and naans, which was all too good, was so much food, the kind staff packed it up for us so we could finish it off, was worth it so much, would definitely recommend this restaurant, and would come again. You should definitely try read the menu, and if you do not understand then try describing to the staff as to what type of dish you would like to have, which is what i had done and it helped me a lot, 5 star service :)More

We had an absolute hell journey getting here, thanks to United Airlines, but had a fantastic meal following a great tour of the Glenfiddich distillery here in Dufftown. The restaurant featured fantastic food, friendly service and a homey environment. I would highly recommend it to...anybody passing through Dufftown or any nearby area.More

Brilliant food - was really impressed with this place did not expect such satisfying grub from such a small town. 10/10 so good we went twice during a 3 night stay. Vegetarian options were very satisfying, lamb was nice and tender, chicken tikka had a...really nice marinated flavour all the sauces were rich and tasty. Great selection of naans and rices and great size of portions. Next time we’re in town we’ll be back!More

Stayed in Dufftown and fancied some spicy food. We placed an order and the food was freshly prepared with in 25 minutes. The mixed grill and chicken massaman curry was nice. Due to Covid we chose to have a takeout they were busy with orders...and still gave a good service. If you fancy a curry I would happily recommend this restaurantMore
