Terrible food, will never go back. If you have to go, don't touch the vegetarian dishes - they are particularly nasty.

We stopped in for a take-away, my wife likes her satay sauce, but this one was more like a gravy, not very satay like.

Wouldn't substitute one of meals in the special for 4 and no home delivery although in previous years, both were available. The duck dish was very fatty. Disappointing.

We have visited this establishment several times now. It is a wing of the McLaren Hotel on the seafront of Brodick. It is well situated with a lovely view of the bay. The room itself is fairly plain with wooden tables and chairs and is decorated with chinese ornaments and pictures. It is clean and there is a toilet in... More
