This restaurant has really went downhill! The food was lukewarm, the restaurant was freezing cold and the staff didn't smile and we're rather abrupt! Hardly ate anything- left and went across to McDonald's for a Big Mac! Will not be back!

Been before but never again. We were unable to eat the "lamb"? curry due to it being rubber with congealed fatty, lumpy, gravy masquerading as curry sauce. Slimy was as you expect slimy chicken to be. Slimy. Side order of mushrooms were raw with more congealed sauce? When we were hit with exorbitant bill we explained that we were not... More

A friendly, clean and efficient Chinese on the outskirts of Balloch, Nice soup, good duck, and typical chow mien and rice dishes. Only criticism is in the (becoming normal) way of cooking dishes, where the chicken / meat / prawns are simply lumped on top of a premaid rice / noodle dish.

Some work colleagues and I were relieved to see this place still open at 9:30pm on a Sunday in December as the pub we were staying at across the road had finished serving food. We were pleasantly surprised at how good it was, the food was very tasty and authentic, the service was excellent, and it was good value. Well... More

Always try to visit this restaurant when we're at Loch Lomond and it never disappoints. Great choice at good value. Staff friendly and attentive. We got a takeaway on this occasion as my husband was full of cold, the service was very quick and the food quality was as good as the eat in. Highly recommend.

We looked on trip adviser for some help and opted for Princess Rose after reading the reviews. We walked into Baloch on the Saturday afternoon to book the restaurant and also to see how long it would take... More

We both love Chinese food and rarely pass up the chance to eat it. This was our first visit to this restaurant and made the mistake of ordering starters and Mains as we would near to where we live- bad error. The food was very nice, staff very good. On looking at the menu I thought the prices high, however... More
