The service was a little slow but the delay between courses actually worked in our favour. The curries were delicious.

Takeaway. £15 for a chicken tikka with rice and nan bread. Pricy, but I wouldn't mind if it was good. This was honestly the worst curry I've ever eaten. The curry sauce genuinely tasted like carrot and coriander soup. The "chicken" was buried under a sea of onions and was quite cold. The nan bread was smaller than a poppadom... More

We saved eating here for our last night as we loved it every time we have been in Aviemore, not any more! Called in on Saturday the 19th, and I have to say after eating in it we were worried we would have a dodgy stomach later on! I got the chicken tikka masala and initially thought my chicken tasted...

Not bad, but average Indian cooking that they get away with as you are in Aviemore (beautiful area but not blessed with great restaurant options). I had chicken madras, and was fairly average. Big pool if sauce with chicken swimming for its life. Screaming "pre-prepared in a bucket". Perhaps my fault for ordering a standard Madras.:.but I love it when... More

Take out, chicken palak, Royal korai chicken, rice, paratha........lovely. Gratis 2 sauce + onion cucumber side + pompadoms. This was so fresh, very light, not overly hot spice but herbs/spices used sympathetically as it should be. I'm from Glasgow so the choice is amazing but I have to say this was up there with the best. If you like mother... More

Menu stated "beef" curry but it was in fact lamb. Not only that but most of it was extremely tough. Partner ordered chicken biryani but sauce was bland and flavourless. We complained and waiter took away the almost full plates and said he would tell the kitchen staff. However, there was no apology and no concession on bill of £56... More

We were in Aviemore for long weekend and hadn't booked a table. However we were shown to a table straight away and placed the order. By the time we had eaten our pompadoms the main meal was ready to be served. Both the bhuna and dupiaza were excellent and arrived in a hot metal which kept the food at an... More

Very disappointed by this restaurant. Missing the rich flavours of true Indian food. Quality in our point of view poor. Would not reccommend this restaurant.

Easy to find but parking might be a problem although it is an easy short walk from Aviemore centre. Good range of food for vegetarians and one of the best meals for a while. Staff are very friendly and it's good value. One to remember for a future visit.

Thank Stewart H
