Plain decor, great food

It's quite plain inside, not somewhere you'd go for the decor and ambience - but 3 of us ate there and all enjoyed our choice of meals. Friday night, so pretty busy but the young guy serving was always friendly and polite despite rushing around. I went for chicken palak - had never had a 'palak... read more

Food was ok. Not wonderful, but ok. Service was very disappointing. On my own. Asked if I could get half rice and chips with my chicken curry, as I was on my own and a full portion of each on their own would be too much. Waiter said yes, but then came back when chef said no. I didn't actually... More

Sat in for a meal on a very busy Friday night with takeaway orders. The lady looking after everything was very busy but took the time to make sure everyone was okay whether phoning, waiting for an order or arriving for a meal. Not licensed so take your own they are happy to open it and give glasses. Food in... More

Visited both times we've stayed in the area. The building and restaurant is a little dated, but the foods good. Choice of Indian or Chinese or a mix of both is a little unusual, but works well. Take your own wine and beer, something I definitely prefer.

I think this restaurant is Bangladeshi run. The Indian food was good and we didn't try the Chinese. Chilli chicken was hot and spicy which was what we were hoping for. Not a place that I'd make a beeline for, but not bad for Lochgilphead.

We got a takeaway from here this evening and it was a bit of a mixed review. My Dum Gosht was delicious.Loads of tender lamb chunks & soft onion and the spicing was spot on. My husband had a vegetable vindaloo and it was just frozen veg in a heavily chilli-powdered sauce. The Bahjis & bombay potato were fine although... More

There are not a huge choice of places to eat in Lochgilphead, so se settled in the Coriander. It was pretty basic, a bit like a takeaway with a restaurant. However, we were very hungry. I was with my two sons, aged five and sixteen. The restaurant was completely empty. Despite this, we were shown to a table for two... More

Food was very good and the service friendly. Wide choice of Chinese as well as Indian food and you can take your own wine.
