Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a major disappointment. Ordered a takeaway for the fam, consisting of Chicken biriani, chicken tikka masala, chicken tikka naan kebab and chicken pakoras. The chicken tikka masala was the worst I’d ever tasted. It was for my daughter who decided a bowl of Alpen...was a tastier option, and refused to eat it. Surely it can’t be that bad, I thought? Then I tasted it. Bad. Here’s my thoughts on what was in the masala sauce - cheese, white fish, yesterdays chicken tikka, all in a pink creamy sauce. Take a moment to think what that would actually taste like? If you had offered to give me the meal for free, we still would not have eaten it. The chicken biriani was only slightly better. The wife said it was bland, tasteless and the vegetable curry was like blended baby food. Again, consigned to the brown bin. I had the chicken tikka naan kebab. It was ok, but only ok, spoilt by old dry chicken. The pakora did not get any complaints, mind, but my son was very hungry. In summary the bad tasting food was not lingering on my tongue as much as the bad taste left by wasting over £40 on bad food that ended up in the bin. Walk across the road to Tesco and get a ready meal curry - you’ll thank me.More

Ordered two Kebabs from them. It was overcrowded but the service was polite and friendly. £19 for two kebabs I thought was quite steep but I had heard of good reviews. I had ordered a lamb tikka kebab and a chicken pakora kebab. There were...4 small cuts of lamb on mine with curdled mint sauce. There were 3 bits of pakora on the other and the naan had mould on it. Both kebabs were cold and stale. Straight in the bin. Will not be back at all.More

We ordered mixed naan kebab, was ok but had better from here in the past! Not usual standard tonight, I’ve never had cabbage in a kebab 😵‍💫wanted salad but didn’t have hardly any! Chicken chunks was lively but doner was spicier that usual. Not good...considering the price!!More

Service is terrible. Unable to place an order over the phone as "there's something wrong with you're voice". They ended up saying they can't take the order and just hung up. Tried calling back but they clearly took the phone of the hook. Could get...better service from a wet shoebox!More

We stay local and for years have enjoyed a take away from here,since covid it’s been every Saturday. We try curry wherever we travel all over the world and find NS hard to beat,so much so when we go away whether abroad or in this...country we always say “ not as good as NS” Large portions,definitely the best curry in Moray !More

This is the sort of place you wish you’d found years ago. Every time we order it’s amazing, curries, kebabs, bursas and the kids meals are brilliant value for money and really tasty. You get a real hit of flavours (not just salt like a...lot of other places in Elgin) and we travel 50 mile round trips to use them. The staff are so friendly and helpful and appreciative and seem to put their hearts and souls into it. I wish they had a restaurant we could sit down to eat at as I’m sure it would be exceptional too.More

Was in the area visiting family and decided to have a takeaway as fancied an Indian and we were recommended this place by my brother in law who said that they did good food and large portions and boy was he right on that. Brother...in law and sister in law ordered and shared a set meal for 1 wheras I shared a set meal for 2 with my son. The meal was delivered within the time that they advised, was piping hot and the portion sizes were fantastic. The food also tasted great and I personally was well stuffed after eating this.More

This place is really good. Chicken pakora is amazing, I love the pizzas and the curries are really good. Huge naans and the calzones and kebabs are great. Good prices too.

I watched an employee drop chicken from a bowl (not refrigerated) in a fryer, realise he had too much in there, raise the fryer and remove a few bits (after they were in for a minute) , then put them back in with the raw...chicken in the bowl 😩 Jesus! That's basic hygiene.More

We were told about this place by the owners and were not disappointed. The portion sizes are huge especially the munchies box that was enough to feed a small army. Will definitely use again when in the area.

Had a meal for 2. The mushroom pakoras looked as if they had been cooked a week ago and reheated every night since. The curry’s were bland and tasteless, my husband never leaves a drop on his plate of anything usually, he hardly touched his...tonight! The worse thing tho was when we left with our meal there was a member of staff standing outside cleaning his ears with a cotton bud, DISGUSTING!!!!More

My boyfriend and I got a take away from here and ordered the chicken tikka massala. It was a strange pink colour and tasteless. It had no heat in it all and chicken was dry and chewy. Awful!
