Took my wife and Mother-in-law for lunch on 09/11/17. Starters were a reasonable portion and tasty. Totally downhill after that. Our mains were mixed up with another table of three which ended up with us getting the food and the other table the plates to...More

Visited here over my holidays to Loch Lomond, food was great, beer was great. Served by a young waiter named Joshua, great at his job. Kudos to him, he is a credit to your restaurant.

The chef here makes his own versions of curry. The chicken tikka masala was full of onions and peppers and was not creamy at all. Overall we as a group were disappointed. We didn’t even get a token off the bill. Terrible.

Little disappointing as Scottish Indian restaurants go. No need to book and very attentive service. The food was OK but nothing special. The emphasis seemed to be more on volume and less on taste. We ordered our normal starters but there was so much more...More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us, so we went along! The restaurant was busy and it was a Monday night! It is welcoming inside. We had a sharing platter, which was excellent. Then we had our mains, sharing a rice and naan. I have...More
