Indian Fusion - top notch!

An interesting menu bringing together different elements from North and South India. Flavours were excellent - really well-spiced, but not too hot. Desserts were superb - authentic gulab jamun were a particular highlight. The only (minor) disappointment was slow service.

We had a fabulous lunch here; chose a lunch special for 11.50 pounds. Included lots of choice of starters and a main. Probably the best lamb my partner has ever had and the chicken tikka in a sauce was amazing. Veggie samosa to start, along with fish pakora. Everything was delicious. Great service, beautiful room.

The food is genuinely lovely with a lot to chose from. Moreover prices are reasonable for Glasgow. However service was a little slow. In that our order was served in dribs and drabs which lead to a delay in starting the meal. If you go make sure you have plenty of time.

We walked in without a reservation and were surprised it was so crowded after 9pm, but they quickly prepared a table for us and served us quickly with excellent Indian dishes.

Mixed pakora starter (chicken, fish, mushroom & veg)..one piece of each for the both of us....wanted more of each but had to restrain as our mains (4 of) are well worth a healthy appetite.Slow cooked lamb, scallops in spicy...

Beautiful architecture in upstairs restaurant. Popular and lively, great food. Everyone loved their curries, and the portions are very generous and reasonably priced. Nan breads are gigantic and rice portions also large. Service got a bit slow when we got to coffees.
