“Amazing Food”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

As a first timer ever visiting Aberdeen, and randomly stumbling across this restaurant in hesitation as its below ground level, the food was amazing. Entering the restaurant I was happily surprised with what I saw, the atmosphere is very nice, the staff lovely and like I said the food was wonderful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and I would definitely go again.

“Gone Downhill!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Have used Bollywood several times for both sitdown meals and takeaway. We have been it less as have noticed a decline in the quality in the food. This culminated in a takeaway that was inedible. The "lamb" must have had a pensioners bus pass and was tough and tasting strongly of mutton. Although two different dishes were ordered both tasted identical.
Sorry Bollywood you need to pull your socks up!

“Still a good choice”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Must have been here 20 or so times over the past 4-5 years, it is still my favourite Indian in Aberdeen, although I have yet to try the highly rated Shri-Beemas.

Saturday night, restaurant half-empty/half-full whichever way you want to look at it.

Also decent, their nan breads are light and fluffy, the main I had of East Bengali Chicken, which is a thick spicy dish including chickpeas and spinach was excellent, and across the table the Chicken Jalfreizi was also enjoyed.

Their vegetable rice is not the best to be honest, I could be wrong but the veg probably comes from the freezer. Bizzarely included lumps of tough/chewy Aubergine which does not go at all.
I'll be giving their veg rice a miss next time, the muchroom rice and bog standard pilau across the table was much better.

Bill for 3 £65, 3 mains, 3 rice, 1 nan, and a few beers.

Reviewed January 17, 2014

We have dined in Bollywood on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Top class food, great friendly and cheerful service.
Would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone.

“Absolutely Delicious”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We are regulars to Bollywood. We visited again on Friday early evening and took our friends who were Bollywood virgins! Again Ali surpassed himself with the food, which all 4 of us agreed was delicious. It is just a shame that the restaurant is never full.
