We had an itison voucher, and the deal was ok. Waiter was a bit vague on what was included, some dishes have a supplement and it varies as to the dishes. I asked the waiter to recommend a spicy lamb dish, which wasn't very spicy (even my wife thought that, and she doesn't do spicy). Drinks are reasonable service to start with was a little slow, but as more staff came on, it evened out. All in all was OK, but don't know if I'd rush back. On a separate note the itison vouchers have to be seated before 5, and the staff seemed to change at 6. Our parents were ther yesterday, and it seems the staff tried to charge them full price, even though they had presented their voucher when they arrived, as per policy. Took them almost 15 minutes to get things sorted out.

I love 8848. The food, the service and the atmosphere is fantastic. My wife and I were there for our Valentines night out, it was a Saturday evening and it was very busy but at no point did we feel that we were waiting too long for our food, or drinks. I had the lamb shank for a main and it's really good, meat is so tender and for anyone that is put off Indian food because of spice, this has almost none, just a background heat... Yum, wish I was there now!

Amazing food and friendly service. The restaurant has a really lovely atmosphere and the waiter was great and recommended dishes for us. I can't remember the name of the dish I had but it was lamb shank and was truly delicious! The meat fell off the bone. They were also happy to accommodate dietary requirements and their menu is very clear for intolerances. The bill at the end was a pleasant surprise too, fantastic value for money. Will be back soon.

Went there for anniversary meal on quiet Sunday evening. All in our party were unanimous in thinking the standard of service and quality of food was outstanding. I had the mixed fish platter for the main course which was amazing. Will certainly return in near future.

This was my first visit to 8848,my partner had visited on several occasions & gave glowing reports. I must admit that my first visit was extremely enjoyable,the attentiveness of the staff,the ambionce along with the food on the plate which was faultless. I have been won over - I will become a regular...

Excellent meal with a good and varied menu. Only let down was that when we first got our pompadoms they served a dip tray that had been used and had dirty spoons. Otherwise great food and we will return. Cost was not too bad for a city centre restaurant. Atmosphere was good too.

Lovely food, staff were attentive but didn't look sure we had made a reservation and said they had a table free for us upstairs which made it sound like they were fitting us in. Much quieter upstairs with less atmosphere, would have preferred to be where it was more lively but they were full. Would go again but book over the phone and request downstairs.

Staff could not have been more helpful. We knew what we wanted and they made the dishes exactly as we wished. Very tasty food which you can taste even when it was very spicy. Far too often heat ruins everything. This definitely does not. We be back very soon.

The food and staff were lovely! My partner doesn't enjoy too much spice but I do and we both enjoyed out food! The smoked cottage cheese (paneer) starter was delicious and a non-spicy option! Will be visiting again in future!

Our food was beautifully spiced, cooked and presented. We could not fault it if we tried. We eat early, at 6 pm, and it is good to see this excellent restaurant deservedly becoming more popular even at that time.

Food was amazing! I would not reccomend the cocktails...they didn't taste like they were described in menu. Also it was a very busy Saturday night So service understandably took a little longer but staff were very pleasant. Will definately go back as food was fantastic.

Very good service, nice clean restaurant. The menu has a lot of Nepalese dishes which are a change from the usual Indian. I have been to 8848 on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed.

Excellent food and nice atmosphere. Also very pleasant staff. If I had one little complaint and its one I have in lots of restaurants is that we had to ask for water twice. Funny as the alcoholic drinks arrived quickly.

Another great visit and enjoyed their high quality meals and drinks. A shade rushed from course to course but we got them to "slow down" a bit. We will return next time we visit Aberdeen.

8848 is probably the best up scale curry house in Aberdeen. Good menu choice with Nepalese food as well traditional curries. Service is also excellent.
