I am a bit of a curry lover so know the good from the bad. This was definitely good. Helpful and attentive staff, reasonably priced, would highly recommend anyone visiting Inveraray should take a visit.

Just discovered that Ban-diuc is Gaelic for Duchess. Given that there is a large framed portrait of Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll on the restaurant wall, it's plain the name refers to her and not the notorious Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, of more recent time....More

Visited this restaurant twice while staying in Inveraray. According to our landlady it changed hands fairly recently. The restaurant has a really nice atmosphere more like a traditional British dining room, very comfy and nicely furnished. Food was very tasty and the staff attentive without...More
