“Casual evening meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have been to Qua several times, either on a pre-theater meal or to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant has a very amicable atmosphere mainly by a very welcoming staff. The pre-theater menu is very good value with a good selection and a decent quantity of food on the plate. many restaurants scale quantity to price meaning reductions on the cheaper menu. However our experience in Qua is that the plate represents good value for money and great quality of food.
The a la carte menu has a very good selection of courses and sometimes I feel spoiled for choice. Prices on a la carte are comparable to many restaurants in Glasgow City Centrer, however the quality of food is in my opinion among the best.

“Nice speedy lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If time is of the essence and you like a lunch that is tasty but not oversized portions then Qua is for you. i went for the £5.95 lunchtime menu and booked as I was taking my OH along on his birthday. The seating is lovely and we had a window seat. the staff are really efficient without being overbearing. i had breaded mushrooms to start and OH had the salami salad which came with bread. Lovely and tasty. next pasta arrabiata for me-nice but more chilli and less pasta cooking time. OH had the chicken which came with a tower of rice.Definatley worth a second visit.

“Great quality, service and outstanding value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

What a great place for lunch - they do a fantastic offer of 2 courses for £5.95 - we had a quirky table made out of a huge piece if timber (be careful with your drink though - you can lose it down a gap if you don't look). We had a very warm and friendly welcome and the service was prompt but with no rushing - when we mentioned we had a plane to catch the service was instant. Food quality was excellent - even the bread and olive oil was top quality. Can't fault it and still can't get over the value for money.
