Our Ethos

We pay detailed attention to our meals to ensure the best quality which ensures our meals are of outstanding taste every time we cook.  All our meals are made to hand-created recipes some of which have been handed down to us over generations.  They are home-made on the premises by our own expert chef David Gill who has years 35 of Asian cooking experience behind him which making our curries truly unique and authentic.

Our ingredients are sourced from the best quality suppliers, most of them locally.  We use fresh vegetables at all times in meals that can subtly alter the taste very slightly depending on the season. Our meals use butter ghee unless vegetarian where we use vegetable ghee. We do not use cooking oil in our food.

Water- as we make our meals in the beautiful hills of Argyll in Scotland we are not able to use water from our own private springs and as a result use bottled water only in our cooking so the taste is not affected by water quality issues.

Our spices are all freshly ground on a meal-by-meal basis. 

We grow some of our own chillies, herbs and vegetables to use in some of our dishes when ever we can.

Meat cuts used are always the finest quality.

including "Crannog Bay" Scotish Lamb & Mutton grown locally in Inverinan.
