We visited Aboyne last weekend and were looking for a good meal out. We decided on the India Gate (former Royal Kashmiri Tandoori), based on a friend's recommendation that it was something special. We were not let down as it was (by some distance) the best Indian meal we've ever had out. For mains, we had a Shahy Kazana -... More

First time customer and as a seasoned chilli head (I'm a huge fan of Indian (and Pakistani) food), the food here was excellent quality and taste. Normally I would travel to ballater for a take away but next time I'm visiting aboyne, I'll be ordering from here. Good value too. Located on the main square of aboyne. Opens at 5pm.

The guys form the sister restaurant in Ballater have taken this place over and transformed it into a great Indian eatery with a twist. The food on offer is nothing like your normal Indian food. The chef and his team has brought together a fusion of flavours combined with original dishes that tantalise the taste buds. A great first time... More

The food was lovely, with very fresh spices and distinctive flavours. We had a Dhaka Special biryani, and a Shahy Kazana, a sweet coconut curry, wit bombay potatoes. The room had been freshly decorated but we were shown to a table by the wall which had masking tape hanging off the dado rail, so we asked for a table by... More

This is now called "India Gate" and with the new name comes a totally different eating experience. We went today to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and found the food a total celebration: Inventive dishes with fantastic flavours, nothing run of the mill. The staff are friendly and polite, the decor, we are told, is being upgraded. An excellent addition to... More
