Set in the heart of Glasgow, Punjabi Charing Cross offers a dining experience unique to all. Whether it is for an intimate meal, to take the family out or even to enjoy a curry with a group of friends, our restaurant will provide a unique experience. Why not start your meal with our unique starters which range from delicious keema padora to our much heralded lamb chops or even our freshly cooked fish pakora. Our curries are cooked the punjabi way and retain a unique depth of flavour. Why not try our traditional lamb on the bone or even the chicken equivalent. Other curries such as our lamb chilli ginger and our punjabi garlic chilli provide a unique twist to the classic curry everyone loves. No description of the Punjabi would be complete without mentioning our newest creation:the lamb Gurmeet.With such depth of choice one visit is simply not enough.

Best Indian food!!!

I would finish the title with "outside of India", but I've not visited India; however, I've traveled all over the world and this was the best curry I've had. Jazz, the waiter, was very attentive, and precise on recommending the Jaipuri curry vegetable simply based on what I said I liked. Great... read more

There are many Indian restaurants in Glasgow, this is in a good location. The staff are very attentive and are excellent at advising if something different is sought. We got poppadoms and spiced onions when we arrived. We had a couple of mixed platters to start and they were superb highly recommended. And the food that the 4 of us... More

Great value meal. Great attentive service. A shame to see it empty for quite a while - location is the challenge - the food is delicious.

I went here because of the 5 star reviews. It was average at best. I tasted 4 curry's they all lacked flavour. It was a big let down. Much better indians around.. Guess it's a lesson that not to always believe the reviews

Fantastic restaurant. I've eaten in and had takeaway dozens of times and I've never had a bad meal. It's consistently excellent.

Looking for a change from our regular Indian eatery we ventured into the Punjabi. OMG! Should have been here long ago!!!! In over 40 years of Indian food in Glasgow, I thought I'd tasted it all. Punjabi has created a new standard to beat! Chicken noori was outstanding, tandoori chicken exceptionally tasty. Beautiful naan bread and a very tasty mix... More

By far the best peshwari naan I've ever had. Friendly staff and beautiful food, highly recommended. They are happy to adjust menu items to suit individual tastes which is always a bonus, and to help you identify new and interesting dishes.

Basic appearance and in need of an update, however, don't judge a book by its cover, the food was authentic Indian home cooking, it was delicious. The Naan bread was the largest I have ever seen, light and definitely tasty. The staff very hospitable. This little restaurant off the beaten track is well worth a visit.
