Really enjoyed the food and the service !! The place is small but we still got a place and ate very well... And is easy to find just next to central station.

Charcoals was recommended by our hotel Receptionist. Great location - close to Buchanan/Argyle streets. Doesn't look much from the outside but it is lovely inside - it is quite small though so I would suggest booking (although they seemed to try to accommodate for most people that came in!). The head waiter was brilliant, always making sure we were fine... More

Found this restaurant simply by clicking 'near me' on TripAdvisor. Was looking for a good curry place in Glasgow City Centre and Charcoals popped up and was rated #18 of over 1500 restaurants. Booked it online via TripAdvisor and a couple of hours later my wife and I were sitting down munching on poppadoms and chutneys to start. A fantastic... More

Went here on our last night in Glasgow. Service was prompt and attentive. Ordered the lamb, spinach aloo, rice, naan, and samosa. My husband washed it all down with a large and small Cobra beer. Food was delicious and fresh, not greasy or oily. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again. They have a special pre-theater menu price if you get... More

Although not much to look at from the street, we had a super meal in a warm and friendly environment. The food was first rate and the service exceptional with both Ali and his colleagues taking great care of us.

This in itself speaks volumes !! Excellent cuisine and excellent staff all around the manager Ali could easily be an aide to Queen Elizabeth .. Congratulations to all at... More

Firstly, don’t be put off by the exterior. It look a little shabby and dated but inside there is a real culinary treat awaiting you. We went on a quietish Tuesday night without a reservation and thought we might struggle to get a table as it’s quite small. However, we were fine and were seated quickly. The lighting was quite...
