Modern and clean restaurant with a great variety on the menu, I have previously been to their sister restaurant in Tobermory, Mull... and both restaurants the staff, service and food is second to none and I would definitely recommend to anyone

First time visit, and first impressions were of a bright modern establishment, I am always a bit wary of multi cuisine establishments but I had seen on their menu that they did "indian" fish dishes which I am very fond, of so I ordered the fish pakoras and the lamb tikka garlic (this is my "control" dish for comparisons). Well the fish "pakoras" arrived they were in fact "fish fingers" in a soggy pink batter and pretty much tasteless. Then the tikka arrived and to this day Im not sure what the meat was but it didnt taste like lamb, and it didnt look like lamb the sauce was pretty tasteless infact it looked and tasted the same as the sauces the other diners at my table who all had different dishes ! Drinks were expensive and the largest glass available was a half pint but as the meal was so bland there was no need for a pint. I cant speak for their other cuisines but an "Indian" it certainly was not

We ate here after it being recommended by a member of staff at a hotel we were staying at just outside of Oban. It was very quiet, when we arrived around 5.30pm and were directed to a table overlooking the bay. Even at night it was a wonderful viewpoint. We shared a tandoori starter with some poppadums and some unusual but very tasty spiced onions. A tandoori chicken dish along with a lamb bhoona made up the rest of our meal. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable and helped us choose our dishes, Two soft drinks and the bill was £35. By the time we had finished and were leaving it was beginning to fill up. Next time we're in Oban we'll definitely be back.
