We were craving for some Indian food while in Inverness..and decided to have lunch here! The location is very good and you get to enjoy great views of the river! The food we ordered was a little oily yet delicious!

Initially noticed they had messed up my order, one of the dishes was not what I ordered. So I phoned and spoke to Ali who said they couldn't do anything about it and would give me the right starter with my next order. After finally settling down to eat, discovered curry was cold and inedible, plucked up guts to phone... More

Walked in of the street and had a great meal. Quick service and standard but very good quality Indian food. Would recommend. It was quite busy and everyone seemed to be having a great time. Bonus was an excellent view of the river.

- Spoilt pualo rice served with a liter of oil. - Taste to price ratio is negative (i.e. bland and oily food for a fortune) - Even the waiters admitted that the view from the glass panes was the best thing about this restaurant. - You can't order side dishes for dinner.

We have been to Inverness 5 times now and this is without doubt our favourite Indian restaurant. It's right on the river and has the most the most amazing views across the river. The food is delicious, very fresh and really reasonably priced. We will certainly be back again next time we're in the highlands

Gave this place a try after a weekend of camping near Inverness, very hungry and a 5 hour drive ahead of us so a good feed was needed. I ordered a Balti with naan bread, my friend the Tandoori platter with peshwari naan. Both of us managed one forkful each. The Balti was basically Pataks sauce. A very poor standard,... More

Not great to be honest... 1. The starter we ordered was wrong (no onion bahji) 2. I ordered pilau rice and received boiled rice 3. It took over an hour to arrive 4. It was cold If only I'd read the reviews before ordering!!

Terrible food, worse customer service. We ordered a takeaway and did they not only get the order wrong (vegetarian food with chicken!) but when I called to advise I was told by a very rude male on the phone that I should have recognised it was chicken before eating. Disgusting rude customer service with a one sauce recipe for disaster.... More
