“Only had a carry out”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Lovely best of the week. Only had a carry out as we arrived late. However it was not rushed and the meal was excellent,
Make note close at 10pm and not midnight like the sign shows

“Good food let down by other aspects!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Nearly didn't go in as the restaurant looks dismal from outside. Needs more doing to entice people in! No excuse for the filthy carpet either! The food was good, but served too quickly - we were in and out in 45 mins which is hardly an evening out! The waiters were a bit abrupt and need lessons in restaurant etiquette, for example they say another couple right next to us even though there were plenty of spare tables.
It's good that there's an Indian in Ullapool and with a few updates, this restaurant could be so much better.

“Total Lack of Customer Care”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Food pretty Good...........

Ordered a Beer and a Coke, when Coke arrived it was flat I pointed this out and was told by waiter he had just opened a new bottle and no attempt was made to get me another one was made and you can only pay by cash here with no visible sign to say this and never got asked if everything was Ok whilst eating.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Huge respect to this dedicated team of gentlemen, English is not their first language but night after night they provide excellent food and service, nothing is too much trouble for them.
We have a sit in meal or takeaway here at least once a week and have never been disappointed in either in the quality of the food or the service.
If you take the time to talk to them about what you like they do their best to advise you and ensure you have a great meal. The Tandoori chef cooks excellent chicken tikka and naan breads and the vegetable dishes are always fresh and perfectly cooked.
Highly recommend.
