Was with a group of friends, I had warned them that previous visits here have always been disappointing, yet again I was right. Overpriced, over cooked tasteless curries, nasty horrible sweet sauces served with the greasy stale poppadoms. Avoid this place at all costs, go to Indian Ocean, rajah, wetherspoons... Anywhere but Sams Indian restaurant!!! It's consistently terrible.

We were looking around for a place to eat while visiting and happened upon Sam's Indian Cuisine on Church Street. We ordered a bunch of dishes to share and everything was delicious. The price was decent and all five of us left very full. Service was very good as well. ☺️

We have eaten in many Indian restaurants and Sam's was up there with one of the best. We arrived in Inverness tired and hungry not knowing where to eat. We wandered in and were pleasantly greeted.
