This pleasant little restaurant serves excellent Indian cuisine. The menu is not as long as usual in Indian restaurants, but there's plenty of choice, including "small plates", which enable you to try a lot of different dishes, especially if in a large party. Nice location too, near the city centre, university, art gallery and Byres Rd.

The title says it all... this is quite simply the most amazing place - if it was possible to give a TA rating higher than 'excellent', I most definitely would. The tapas idea is just fantastic and works so incredibly well with Indian food. I've eaten here a number of times and every single dish has been truly out of... More

Small friendly cafe with a really novel take on indian cuisine. Surprisingly cheap, given the high quality, with mains around 6 pounds.

Glasgow is known for its fabulous curry houses, and this is one of the best. They don't accept bookings so you'll have to queue for a table, but it's definitely worth the wait. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is amazing. It's tapas-style so you can try lots of different dishes, without feeling stuffed at the end.... More

I have had the pleasure of visiting this most excellent establishment many times over many years. I have never once been less than delighted with the standard of food and the wonderful staff who quietly and efficiently deliver superb service. I visited again today to celebrate my birthday and was very moved by the kindness of the management and staff... More

Wonderful lunch, good atmosphere, quick service - what more can you ask for. The system to suggest little "tapas"-like portions is great because you can try different plates - and really one was better than the other. The place is run by an Indian family and you really get authentic food. A place not to miss when in Glasgow! Another... More

We went here once as we started out our trip and then returned two weeks later as we were ending our trip. Liked the idea of "tapas"-style Indian food. Their other restaurant is not the same. For two people for dinner we ordered 5 small plates. For lunch we ordered 4. We like spicy and picked out spicy things each... More

If you're looking for indian food rich in spices and aromas, this is the place to go. The quantity is good in contrary to many indian restaurants. Will definitely visit again.

Already been twice and this month is barely a week old. Service is quick & friendly and the views of Kelvingrove art gallery are spectacular. However what steals the show is the flavoursome food. Every dish is authentic. Every dish is a winner. Some highlights : lamb patina, chilli garlic chicken, keema mattar, chana dahl. All the pakora are great... More

The menu was based on side dishes and everything was super tasty... delicious! My friend and I had a table full of dishes.. I think we had around 8 different plates between us, because everything on... More
