Was in the area and found this place by accident. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the restaurant clean and pleasant. The food was excellent....the best Garlic Chilli Chicken I have had in a long time...and reasonably priced. Will certainly be going back there next time I pass this way.

We drive through Inveraray all the time, and it's roughly half-way in our 3-HR drive to the west coast. Some friends of ours recommended Ban Diuc (they sometimes pick up a takeaway) so we stopped a few months ago. We had poppadoms and two main courses (one chicken, one prawn) with rice and a garlic nan. The food was excellent... More

We went back here a few weeks ago with one of our friends who loves curries. He had to concede that the curry he got was the best he had ever tasted. I had the fish pakora which was lovely, Andrew had the mixed pakora and Malcy had the sheek kabab. I tried the Chasni for the first time which... More

While on holiday with family we had a lovely meal here. Food was tasty and hot. No issues with the children or baby. Even with heating up baby's food. Waitress (Australian) was lovely. Defiantly recommend.

Greeted by very friendly staff. Large room which was in need of some TLC. Lights very bright and I would recommend reducing by atleast 25% to improve atmosphere. Very few customers in however unsure if that's just the time of year. Locals did call in to collect their takeaways. Food was tasty and portion size was fine for me and... More
