Each time we make a booking at this great restaurant, we make sure we ask for a table on the upper level. The restaurant furnishings are reminiscent of an old tea room, or a room in a grand old house. The food is distinctly unique. Whilst there are certain Indian foods you might recognise, such as chicken tikka or pakora,... More

This is no ordinary curry house. Indeed, the term curry house does it an injustice. The ambience in the upstairs room, thanks to the warm lighting and wood panels, is cosy. The service, while perhaps a touch too brisk, is efficient and unintrusive. And the food... well, it is hard to beat. Well flavoured, tasty, generous portions come out of... More

Great upmarket curry house experience, with good food and a unique atmosphere. We were shown upstairs on arrival and I imagined with the high backed chairs, candles, wood paneled walls, and dim lit, interior, that Herman Munster, or Frankenstein might also be joining us. Indeed it felt like having a curry in a haunted house. The paranormal aside the service... More

We went to this gem of a the book festival. It was early for us but the place was booming even so. I can understand why. The food was different but delicious and plenty of it. I had a salmon dish which had a popadom crust and came with all sorts of things a chick pea stew a potatoe salad... More

My friend and I ate here last Thursday and after hearing all the raves reviews I was not disappointed. The front of the restaurant looks a bit run down, however this is just a façade as the restaurant inside is fantastic. We sat upstairs at a small but comfortable table. I ate the prawn dosa to start with which was... More

My partner and I have visited on a number of occasions since our first visit 2 years ago, and we are yet to be left unsatisfied. Food is always fantastic, along with a warming, family run, style, service. My ONLY slight criticism is the wine list, the red wines on offer aren't great, but this is a minor point. I... More

Besides india of course, Glasgow has some of the best curry in the world (2012 curry capital might I add)! This plays blows the socks off of its' competition and everytime I have friends from outside of glasgow come to visit, I always make them go here. It's a little pricey (I'm on a student budget might I add) but... More

This is quite simply the best Indian restaurant in Glasgow. If you like real Indian food - not just old fashioned curry sauces with chicken or lamb - then this is the place to go. A great Indian culinary experience - or as close as you'll get this side of Delhi! And of course the service is excellent - it's... More
