Wonderful place

We booked a table online and we were not disappointed. The staff were attentive and very friendly. The food was lovely and we were given a number of sample foods to try. A great restaurant and we would definitely visit again!

Ate here whilst on business on a Monday night (quite early - 6.30ish) and I was the only person in (for about 45mins!). Staff were prompt and friendly, as work were picking up the tab I went the whole hog and had poppadoms, starter, main and 2 side dishes. There is a meal deal here but it only lasts until... More

Went at lunch time. Even though it is a small restaurant but the service and food are even better! Naan bread was the best I ever had and the portion sized are good,not too big and not too small for lunch deal. We paid about £15 for two course meals for two people.

We had a dinner in this restaurant. Great choice in menu. We were not sure what to choose and asked for advice the waiter. His advice was perfect and food was delicious. Service very good. Wine list is short and not interesting

We arrived at Charcoals. The service was excellent from when we arrived until we finished. Food was very good and had that little touch to it. The staff were very professional and just could not fault them. The waiter even went to the shop next door and bought my two daughters a packet of M&Ms each which was very kind... More

Great service, amazing food, good value and on a Monday night there was a steady stream of people. We had one rice, one naan and two chicken dishes and that was plenty. Friendly and attentive staff

My partner & I came here on our first night in Glasgow and were highly impressed with the service and the food. We started with Masala Popodums with some delicious dips & were then given 2 more Crispy Popadums with some Chana Chaat for free! For my main I chose the Jaipuri with king prawns and have been craving it... More

Starters came out in about 5min and my partner was still eating hers when out came the main meals. rather... More

On arrival to Charcoals, I was shocked to find it was so small and cafe like. That said, the atmosphere was good and the quality and service made the place feel very special and professional. The staff made us feel very welcome and brought us food and drink promptly. We ordered poppadoms to begin but was also given a fried... More
