This place is basic, more like a café than a restaurant, but they have a great vegetarian selection, including mock prawns, chicken, duck etc. It is not soya and not quorn, the waiter wouldn't share the secret of their ingredients, but it's nice to have different options and the dishes are very tasty.

My friend and I usually visit Rumours on a Friday, after we've been to the gym. The food is fantastic, as is the service. If we are in a hurry, we opt for the lunch menu - the roti (starter) is light and crisp, and my favourite is the Nasi Lemak chicken curry. For a more relaxed lunch, we opt... More

I have visited here several times with family. It is always busy and the food is always extremely good! Would recommend to anyone.

We tried this restaurant after a recommendation. The place was empty when we went in but soon filled up. We started with the salt and chilli squid and salt and chilli prawns which were delicious. Mains were beef and black bean and green thai curry with chicken. Both were lovely but the starters were the nicest. The only thing I... More

Good, prompt and helpful service. The Thai coffee was hot, strong and sweet - a great pick-me-up. But the main dishes, though tasty, are pricey for what is basically noodles. The place is nearly empty most times I've passed so that must tell a story. But if you want a hot meal quickly in the city centre, this ticks the... More

Rumours Kopitiam is an authentic Malaysian restaurant right in the centre of Glasgow. Simply decorated and more of a cafe in style it offers a range of "Hawker" type food (e.g. Char Kway Teow) and more sophisticated dishes of the type you might find in a back street of KL. It's one of our local placers to eat when we... More

I love Japanese food and regularly frequent Nanakusa, Ichibhan & Wagamama in Glasgow. I'd been here years ago before my love for the cuisine really took hold and decided to return following many recommendations. The service was friendly and we were offered a seat immediatley. The menu is large and varied with lots of vegetarian options which is always good... More

Having recently had a makeover Rumours is looking good. Still authentic cafe style restaurant just as they are in Malaysia. We enjoyed satay and a noodle dish with seafood here on Sunday and it did not disappoint. Food delicious and authentic as confirmed by my husband, who is from Malaysia. Highly recommended.

Had an excellent starter of salt and chilli squid which while delicious was quite dry so (in my opinion!) would have benefited from a dip or sauce to accompany it. My main of teriyaki beef with rice was tasty, sticky and rich. It came with crackers (good) and a couple of small samosa/spring roll type things, which were too small... More

This is my second time visiting the restaurant. The food was within expectation and lovely. However, some dishes can be expensive e.g. some up to £13 for vegetable + prawns dish. I would visit with a large group so a larger selection of food can be sampled. Worth visiting if you crave for malaysian or singaporean food.
