Compact, warm, comfortable, intimate and filled with beautiful, exotic aromas wafting from the Piccadilly Circus of a working kitchen. Everyone was polite, clean, accommodating... More

Overall a really nice curry and excellent service! Loved the free 'chef's specials' that were brought out with each course! The only slight disappointments were the onion bhajis and naan bread, not quite up to the standard of the rest of the meal!

Popped in for a business lunch on Tuesday and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service.Good quality food competitively priced in the centre of town. Would not think twice to go back to Charcoals next time in Glasgow.

I'm Dutch and maybe therefore not a real expert on Indian food. But starters were very tasty and the suggestion for the main dish, from the waiter, was excellent (and spicy). What I really appreciated was the commitment and service of this waiter (or manager?). I can absolutely recommend this Indian restaurant, you will not be disappointed. (Because my boss... More

We decided on Charcoals and we were not disappointed!! We had popadoms with dips and then we had a shazni and a patia with chips, naan bread and... More
