Small restaurant very friendly. The quality of the food was really good and the menu choice was varied for all tastes from mild to hot as you would expect. All courses of my meal were good quality and value for money. The only thing I would say is that the cobra beer is slightly over priced for a small bottle... More

We'd been here before several years ago and had sadly stopped going due to our opinion that the quality had deteriorated over time. We went recently on a recommendation as the standards had reportedly improved after a change in catering staff. The food was OK but not quite as good as we'd been informed. Definitely a matter of taste perceptions... More

We ate here on 3rd January 17. Starters were very nice, chicken pakoras & king prawn bhaji, I had the mixed grill and my husband a mixed balti jalfrezi, both dishes were really tasty and I must say the Nan bread was the lightest I've ever tasted. We are regular curry people and will definitely return to this place. Pity... More

Firstly this place is not Indian, they do not have the decor, right food, and hospitality / culture of India. It is a Bangladeshi set up with Indian type cuisine, so do not expect Indian warmth and welcome as they can not even speak Hindi. I recommend this place over The Taste of India.

I ate here earlier this year while visiting Portree and thought it excellent. Went back tonight and although quiet (it is nearly end Nov), the food was, once again, superb. Chicken Chat to start followed by Chicken Chilli Garlic. Only complaint, portions a bit on the big side but rather that than leaving hungry. Well worth a visit if you're... More

Visited this restaurant on the 8th November at lunch time. The building was freezing cold, and the food not much better. The best thing about this place was the service, it is over priced for the food served, and the drinks £7.65 for one coke and one soda and lime. Pleased we wont warrant a second visit. Try somewhere else... More

We had a takeaway and whilst we couldn't fault the flavour and the quality of the dishes there was no heat in either, despite being classed as medium heat dishes. The service, price and staff were absolutely fine.

I have heard some not so good reports about this restaurant but I have never been disappointed with the food both in the restaurant and as a takeaway. Sometimes the meals were a little low in meat content but that has improved over the last couple of years.

We would certainly not return here on future visits to Portree. Service was efficient if perfunctory, but the dishes we ordered were very average. Value for money was shocking. We do not usually scrutinise restaurant accounts but when we were confronted with a total bill of £87+ for 4 starters, 4 mains and 3 small bottles of beer, we decided... More

As vegetarians and myself a coeliac I found the Isle Of Skye a difficult place for eating out. We discovered the Prince of India by accident and had one of the tastiest meals of the weeks holiday. Service was attentive, and the food hot and tasty. The catered for my dietary requirements without any problems.
