Award Winning


for Best Indian


In Scotland 2018

We are a small family-run restaurant. We take great pride in our food and service. From the minute you walk through the door until you leave, you will be looked after by our friendly team. We could not believe it when we won Best Indian Restaurant at the prestigious Hospitality and Entertainment Awards in April 2018. Arjun’s hard work certainly paid off. He was delighted, humbled and very emotional to receive such an accolade. Thank you to everyone for their support and love.

Taste the richness of minimalism

“At The Indian it’s all about how Indians eat at home”

It’s sharing plates – a good combination of protein, vegetables and carbs – nourishment for the Mind, Body and Soul. It’s time for change – a break away from the westernized “Indian” dishes which the west has been accustomed to for the last 5 decades. Eating trends and tastes have matured and developed. Variety and flavors in Indian home- style cuisine bear no competition. At The Indian our menu is not extensive- each dish is different – it’s how the Indians would eat at home and how they would serve their guests.
