Me and my partner have recently move to Aberdeen and we love Indian food so finding a good quality Indian restaurant was high on our priority list.
I booked a table for last Saturday evening and managed to get a table at 8.30pm without any problem, on arrival I noticed the restaurant was busy but we where taken to our table without hesitation, the waiter asked if we wanted any drinks and told us about the specials.

The restaurant is clean with a traditional feel regarding decor I liked it but my husband said it was a little to dark, I ordered the chicken tikka and my husband ordered a vindaloo curry !
both meals arrived in a timely manor and a new round of drinks.

I enjoyed my own curry but after trying my husbands it's was way to hot for my but he said it tasted very good and the heat was perfect for him.
The waiting staff where very attentive and this is a place I will be coming back to again, very good value for money and the food was good quality.

Definitely my favourite place to eat Indian food in Aberdeen. I originally came here for the buffet but you can also order starter dishes as well. I really enjoyed the variety of food stocked in the buffet. It has your old favourites as well as other dishes you may not be as familiar with. I personally enjoyed their pakora, tandoori chicken, and masala. Will certainly try to come back soon!

As the title says this is our 3rd visit as a family and we have always been very happy with the food provided on each occasion.
I have now sampled a lot of food from the menu and it is all very tasty and you can tell it has been made fresh, the staff are extremely friendly and very helpful if you don't know a particular item on the menu they give a decent description.

One of our favorite places to now eat looking forward to next Saturday as we have a table booked.

Found this on trip advisor and worth the visit. Staff very attentive and food delicious . Menu has a few new items which were worth trying . Price reasonable for Aberdeen and very busy only downside is that tables are a bit close for comfort but recommend this to all that like good food.

I decided to go with the tandoori menu this time around, and as expected they met all my expectations. Dinner here is always very special, with just the right amount of fresh spice and sizzling heat. Best currys.
