Indian food will always be my favourite and I wasn't disappointed here. The chicken tikka naga was absolutely wonderful, accompanied by a cheese naan for a change, and washed down with a couple of cool lagers. Marvellous.

My family and I came here when we were craving Indian food/home cooked food on our road trip through Scotland. We are Indian and we loved our meal! The staff did a good job recommending dishes based on our tastes and preferences

I ordered a main dish and asked for it to be spicy, which turned out to be very good to my taste. The place itself is nice and service was good. I would definitely recommend it.

You would have to phone/email and ask. They more than likely will. I have gone in at that time and had a meal but in winter months in Inverness it is quieter.
