We normally go to the other Indian in Campbeltown, but thought we'd try this for a change. Firstly the waiter was unhelpful, like we were a bother. We were trying to give our order and he was obviously distracted. Wine was good, starters ok (mixed platter although it took an effort for the waiter to understand we wanted one plate... More

First off, my pint of lager was served in an obviously badly cracked glass. How it wasn't spotted I really don't know. The naan bread was very clearly from a packet and most certainly was not made on the premises. Neither, I would suggest, was any of the curry. We both had separate dishes and I can tell you, as...

There were 8 in our party. The staff seemed offhand and the food wasn't very nice. We wouldn't go back.
