We live in a city so we are used to having plenty of choice of places to eat in the evening and this looked like one of the better bets on a Thursday night out in Castle Douglas in mid-December. We had been told by a local that the food was better than the decor might suggest. Noting that the... More

Tried here as it was difficult trying to find somewhere in the area on a Sunday night. Service was friendly and all the meals were super fresh and tasty. If you want a Indian meal with something different in terms of menu choices, this is the place to go.

This restaurant was recommended to us when we asked a local where to eat in for a curry. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was very tasty and authentic, added value was the Wednesday fixed price three course banquet. Would recommend if you are visiting Castle Douglas and like curries. The restaurant is opposite the Tourist Information Office... More
