Friendly efficient staff. More unusual menu than most Indian restaurants. I enjoyed the chicken and potato pakora starter followed by a slow cooked chicken curry and chicken stock rice. A little on the expensive side but nice overall.

visited on a Monday night expecting it to be quiet but the restaurant was packed. We managed to get in and the feeling was good. Service was okay not overly attentive but not bad. The food is always a highlight here and never disappoints. beautifully balanced and full on flavour.

On one occasion the floor was quite untidy and needing swept with bits of popadom lying around! The service was patchy!! Ie main male member of staff appeared to ignore us and serve people in after us!! Next... More

Had a great meal last month at this establishment. Back again tonight with my colleagues once again working on the Celtic match for tv, only to be told take always only as we close in 10 minutes. Pathetic, walked a further 50 yards to the Bukharah part of the Lorne Hotel, and the staff were fantastic. Although closing also at... More

The smaller menu is ideal for lunchtime and even an evening. The food was as good as it gets. In a city with lots of very good Indian restaurants this is at the top. The specials were excellent and the portions just right. Service was pleasing and despite this being a small place with lots of clients it wasn't rushed.

We had friends over from Hong Kong looking for a good curry in Glasgow. We took them to this superb restuarant and they were knocked out by the truly first class food. Top drawer!!

I visited here with my family and patents for lunch because we couldn't get in to the Mother India cafe next door. This place is run by the same people and does food to take out, and also has a few tables. The food was fantastic! We had vegetable pakora to start - delicious. Am the mains at great too.... More

I have been using The Den for a couple of years. I've seen a fair few restaurant come and go over the years. This one should stay exactly as is. Monkfish Curry is my meal of choice whilst my pal Jools savours the Keema. Can't fault it. Staff are great and attentive when required. Good effort. Authentic and slightly different... More
