“Nice meal , Nice service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

First visit, Saturday evening, quite busy. The menu's a bit limited but there's still enough to choose from. Meals are well cooked with good quality ingredients. Good sized naan. The place is clean with fresh decor, the staff are friendly and attentive. Ticks all the boxes, definitely be back.

“Possibly the Best Indian in Inverness!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

We have had at least 10 meals here sit in & carry out. The food is great good size portions the pilau rice is tasty and the garlic version is even better, If you like things a little hotter or more garlic or whatever just ask them, they will be happy to oblige. One of the reasons we keep going back also is the fact we always get a discount. We have tried every Indian In Inverness and this one in my opion is the best or at least in the top 3!

“Good meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Meal for one during a business trip. good food and attentive, efficient service.

I had the "slay the Dragon" starter - just because of the name! - but it was really very good.

Green Herb Chicken was flavoursome and plentiful but lacked a little heat for my taste.

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Was actually looking for a Chinese, which this used to be. As we were looking at the outside menu a waiter came out to try and talk us in. Not normally a good sign but he offered us a deal so we went in.
It was early on a December Sunday night so most places deserted. The waiter who coaxed us in turned out to be the part owner and we had a good chat with him.
He had offered us the £14 menu at the £9 menu price so that was most welcome.
Starters vey clean and good portions.Mains also good although mine a bit bland. However the waiter was more than happy to take it away and spice it up a bit which was much better.

As it was quiet we had personnal service and we all (4) enjoyed ourselves. The bill was £20 less than we had paid for a similar meal the night before in another Indian in Inverness.

“So glad we visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

My Husband and I were touring the Highlands and after a hard days sightseeing we fancied an Inidan meal so decided to take a trip to Inverness. We just passed this restuarant and decided to give it a go.

It was quite early for dinner so we were the only table and the waiter was so lovely and accommodating. We were offered popadoms and dips whilst we decided which were lovely - my husband especially liked the restuarants home made dip.

The menu itself ranged from typical Indian food (Korma, Balti etc) to more 'fancy' dishes. I ordered a chicken tika masalla (i'm boring) and my husband had a garlic chili chicken curry. We shared a mushroom rice and a peshwari nan bread. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were great - we didn't quite manage to finish, but we almost did it!!

The bill was also reasonable and we felt it was well worth it for the great food and service. If we are in Inverness again we will come back!
