Had a takeaway meal at 5pm on Saturday 11th and it was superb. Very tasty, good sized portion and quick service. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Garlic naans are enormous! 😀👍

We ate at this restaurant by accident. We thought we were at the Rupali Palace, which is rated on Trip Advisor as No. 1 in Forfar, however we were not at all disappointed with our meal; it was delicious. We only had a main course, but were brought popadoms and a relish whilst we were waiting. The meal did take... More

We hadn't been to the Rupali for several years and the last time the food was a bit disappointing. Went last night; what a pleasant surprise. I have eaten in many Indian restaurants but this was up there with the very best. I had the lamb jalfrezi, a dish I don't normally order as I often find it a bit... More

We dropped in on a midweek evening. The restaurant was empty when we arrived, one other couple arrived while we were eating. The staff were friendly and the menu was extensive. The food arrived in good time and was very tasty - they produced the hottest vindaloo I have had in the UK, which was exactly what I wanted. Recommended.

Have to say, my partner and I had a wonderful meal here last night. Food was amazing, full of flavour, tasted wonderful, and very reasonably priced for 2 courses and soft drinks. Although we couldn't finish all our food, there was no problem in getting it boxed up to take home. We will definitely be visiting here again. Thank you... More

Visited on a Saturday evening and was surprised the restaurant was almost empty-how things have changed at the Rupali over the years.The dishes we selected were delivered in copious portions ,indeed rather larger portions than we are used to.In general ,however,we found the food rather bland and it did not help that I was not given the dish ordered but...

This was a visit on New Years day to celebrate a birthday. We had pre ordered the food in advance as we had a party of 16 to be catered for. The food was good, no one had any complaints and the portions were ample, some quite large. The staff were friendly and very attentive to our needs. The meal... More
