There are great curry houses to be found the length and breadth of the UK, and even right up at the top of Scotland, they aren’t missing out on the action. Shahbaaz Tandoori on Rose Street in the centre of Aberdeen bring the very best in Indian and Pakistani cooking to the Grampian regions. There are all the trappings of the very finest Indian restaurants: tandoori favourites such as chicken and lamb tikka, seekh kebabs and lamb chops, classic curries that run from balti and biryani to rogan josh and korma, and a huge range of chef’s specials that you can only find at Shahbaaz. Go for the Nentara, marinated and slow-cooked spring chicken with spices, or the Masaledar, with meat from the tandoor and a tangy sauce, or even the house signature of Shahbaaz Reshami Masala, a patia-style curry with cream, sultanas, cashews and almonds, as well as lychees and mango on request. Take a trip to Shahbaaz Tandoori on Rose Street and book a table for one of the best Indian restaurants in Aberdeen.
