“If you like food, you'll love Charcoals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Working near this restaurant I walk pass it every day. I thought I'd treat myself to a nice lunch, so I wandered in one day. Best lunch decision I have ever made. The place has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Their lunch time deal is one of the best I've seen. Now, the main part - the food. Fantastic. I've never had such an enjoyable curry. And their pakora is to die for. If you're ever looking for somewhere for a good meal, definitely give this place a try.

“Monday night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Myself and my girlfriend live very nearby and decided we should pay Charcoals a visit. We've been to all of the other local Indian restaurants, including in the Merchant City - Koolba, Dhaikin, Dhabba etc and we can safely say that Charcoals more than competes with them. Charcoals has more character, friendlier staff and the food seems more traditional and home-style. We really enjoyed the Chicken Boona in particular and we were given some chicken wings completely free of charge, which was a nice surprise. We actually went in to get a take-away after a long day at work but we were impressed with the ambience, staff and music even though it was a quiet monday night (there were 2 other tables in) so we decided to get a table. Mohammed deserves a special mention as his service was excellent and he really made us feel welcome and comfortable. Because of this we will be coming to Charcoals before any of the other Indian restaurants in our area. It's miles cheaper, it's not pretentious (you don't need to dress up) and it feels like a real local community restaurant. If you're looking for a chilled-out, quality Indian meal in Glasgow look no further!
