Excellent food and service. Great choice on the menu. Service was timely and we never felt rushed which is most unusual these days. Thoroughly recommend.

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!

best customer service ever and really lovely food in a nice setting. Staff were attentive with being intrusive. Loved the fact that we were remembered from a previous visit a few months ago.

The most delicious indian/nepalese food I have ever tasted! Served hot and with great service! Try the King Scallops, very tasty! The King prawns in coconut milk were superb!

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.

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!

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.

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.

The food and service are always top notch here - keeps us coming back, as does the Golden Everest beer which you can't get anywhere else.

Top class food and service - the food tastes great. The choices go from unusual to traditional. No wonder it's so popular. We couldn't fault anything.

We thought both the service and the food were very good. The only issue was that one of the deserts we requested was not available as was a second option.

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.

Food was excellent, however had a 1 hour wait for it! Busy Saturday night so didn't expect it immediately, but the fact that they kept letting more people in when they were struggling to cope didn't help.

The service was good but the food was a little disappointing. We both tried Nepalese courses from the menu and they were very similar though described as completely different. Good atmosphere and overall not a bad meal.

Great food, but we felt rushed out of the restaurant at only 1030pm as the staff appeared to want to go home so early. Will definitely go back.

Excellent food and Service. Was confused why website didn't allow us to book a table at 6pm (only 5:45pm or 6:15pm) as restaurant was very quiet.
