“Best curry for miles and miles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Since we moved to Aboyne the Lochnagar in Ballater has become our curry house of choice. Nothing on Deeside can match the quality, service and price. Staff are all excellent and happy to have a chat with customers if they are not too busy. Excellent choice of dishes on the menu. All cooked to perfection and taste great.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Visited early on Friday evening. Very warm welcome from all staff. Excellent food,especially the lemon and cashew rice. If we were staying longer in the area we would come again. One complaint - menu spellings very poor - 'balty', 'jalfresy' ???

“Very extensive menu”

We enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. It had a very wide choice of menu. My husband had the lamb shank which he had never seen in an Indian restaurant before and enjoyed it greatly.

“Lochnagar Indian Restaurant, Ballater, Scotland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We ate at this Indian restaurant twice and it was excellent both times. The food was superb, and many of the dishes were original, not just the ordinary run-of-the-mill Indian meals you find anywhere. The service was good, very friendly, efficient and well-informed: the staff obviously take an interest in the preparation, cooking and serving of all the meals. The welcome was warm and the atmosphere was relaxed and congenial.
