Second time visiting this Indian and it was amazing again, service perfect and food absolutely gorgeous. I have tried a lot of Indian restaurants but this one is one of the very best. Flavour is just fabulous. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the city to try it out. You won't be disappointed.

Main meals were of a high quality, let down by the high price of pompadons (60-70P each) and the choice of sweets, all sweets were pre-packed and nothing of any interest offered.

Just strolled in for dinner last night, and wow it was a surprise and good. Having lived in India and had many good meals in Bradford, this is right up there. Smart, clean, very good service and great food. Definitely raises the bar for Indian food in the UK.

Came here with my son away back but it was great,the portions are huge so next time i will be sharing lol. My son at the time took an epilepsy attack but the waiter came over asked if everything was ok, which in some places they don't bother. I will certainly be back soon as my family & friends go...

Ordered takeaway which arrived with god timing. Food was overall very bland, tasteless curry, garlic bread rather sweet than garlicky. Dhal had a strong burnt garlic taste. Reading other reviews, if this food is considered fantastic in Inverness, well, l feel very sorry for you guys here because obviously you never had a real Indian meal yet.

Went as a solo diner due to business. Met with a pleasant smile and seated straight a way. The food was very good I had a tandoori chicken jalfrezi which was fresh and tasty. Keep up the great service and food .
