“Last meal in Scotland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Very welcoming restaurant, lovely staff and great food. Very generous portions. We went with some friends and can highly recommend it if you enjoy a nice Indian meal. The Gaelic coffee was perfection. Thank you will definitely visit again

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We had dinner here on the recommendation of our B&B host. The food was great and we had excellent service from the staff, who were wearing jackets and ties. Watch out for the naan bread - we ordered two (one each) but they were huge and we only managed to finish one between us!
