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.

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

As there's no licence we had brought our own wine and this was welcomed by the owner, who supplied wine glasses... More

You can have Indian or Chinese here - we opted for Indian. On arrival shown straight to table and immediately told that they had no alcohol licence but it was okay to purchase from local off sales and bring in - so we did. The food was all freshly prepared and if a good quality which is sometimes missing in... More

We travel to Lochgilphead regularly and always get a takeaway from Coriander. The curries are always delicious, and the portions sizes are good. Great food, good value.
