Great all round - service and food. Faultless. Don't need to look elsewhere in Glasgow. I would return here without hesitation.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Excellent restaurant, from the food, to the choice, taste, service, location, staff!
We were given a voucher from a friend for Charcoals. It was a set menu for 2 people.
Upon entering the restaurant the waiter said just to ignore the set menu and pick anything from the whole menu instead!
Food tasted amazing! Portion size was perfect.
In between courses the staff always took the time to chat and engage with all their customers.
We had 2 drinks each and upon requesting the bill we were told "have another drink on us, go on it is New Year after all". Amazing service!
Cannot recommend Charcoals enough!
Location is perfect, right in the centre of town.
You will not be disappointed.

“Best Indian food outside Bradford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

By chance I discovered this restaurant whilst trying to waste an hour or two in Glasgow. From the minute I entered the restaurant the staff were attentive but not over the top. The food was cooked fresh from the kitchen and the chef could be seen through the serving hatch. The manager Ali was professional and extremely helpful.

“Cannot fault this dark horse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

As the description says it is hidden away. I have passed this restaurant so many times but have never thought to go in. My mistake. And I will never pass it again. They open late as well which is a bonus. We were able to get there until after 10, but they were happy to serve. And it was high quality, quick service and low price.

Go there now!
