My husband and I visited the Qismat for dinner and it was excellent. They were very knowledgeable and helpful regarding my gluten intolerance and were able to help me choose a delicious gluten free meal. Lovely, clean restaurant and very welcoming. Would recommend it for anyone with food intolerances/allergies.

I missed this restaurant on previous visits to Elgin but never again ! The food is fantastic and the staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. It is busy so do book if possible however they managed to fit all callers in when I visited last Saturday. Portion sizes are large and great value for money. One of the... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We had heard good reports so decided to give it a try and it certainly didn't disappoint. Food was excellent along with the service. Will definitely visit again.

We have been visiting this restaurant for over 20 years. The quality of the food is second to none with a wonderful variety of food, served by very professional but friendly staff. It is always busy but this does not affect the excellent service......we have tried others....but always return to the best.

Firstly this review is solely my experience and 100%genuine. I have been here recently for the buffet meal. The place was very busy and my meal was good. As with most buffet meals the food is generally of a lower standard....but was nice enough cost effective.No ice cream on the buffet...limited dishes. Nice restaurant.

Dropped in for dinner whilst on a break in Elgin. The restaurant is much larger than it appears from the outside and was well patronised, with fresh interior décor and comfortable booths. We had a mixed pakora starter which was excellent, and ordered Murgh Khan Puri and Scampi Chasni for mains. My Chasni dish was crammed full of succulent langoustine... More

Our whole party all agreed that our curries at Qismat were the best we've had for a long time. We will be back. Try the bhoona or the chicken tikka garlic chilli.
