“Terrible... Worst Indian in Aberdeen”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

After seeing the glowing reviews online... I was excited for a nice Indian meal. What is discoverede was that those reviews must have been written by the restautrant or their family....

Terrible Indian

Food...showed up 20 mins late...cold

Tandoor chicken was boiled in a red sauce.... Aweful
Garlic nan was soggy and cake-like... No flavour. And almost uncooked
Chicken curry.... Cold rubbery chicken in spaghetti sauce

Buyer beware. Aberdeen deserves better

“All time fave”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

I used to live on the street for many years next to the Khyber Pass and eventhough for 10 years I have lived on other side of town and have 2 such takeaways on my door step I still will only order a takeaway from here. They are very good at adjusting meals to your taste - just specify if you like a bit more spice or less. As for surroundings I have been behind the scenes and have seen how well run the kitchen is and that all meat is fresh. Chicken is fresh and jointed on site - no short cuts here. The staff have always been friendly and efficient - can't say anything bad - sorry!

“Average, bland, expensive”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

I don;t know why the place is adorned with all the certificates, denoting how great it is, for it is simply average.

“Dissappointing...bland”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

Decided to give this takeaway a bash having seen all the good reviews online and was really disappointed! I ordered the veg korma which I know is not known for it flavoursome qualities but this was the blandest korma I have ever had. It just had no flavours. It was the same for the saag aloo and naan that I ordered..bland bland bland! My partner ordered the special chicken korma which was really nice, not sure if it was the amount of chillies in it which helped. Really Dissappointing as I was really looking forward to it arriving. Delivery was quick and food still hot.
