Had vegetarian version of the chef's special. It has to be one of the best Indian meals I have ever had - including the curry mile in Manchester. Wife had saag paneer which was also fantastic and made to order to her special instructions! Also, get the pakora if you get the chance. They are to die for! Thanks guys.

Visited Punjabi Charing Cross Glasgow after a glowing recommendation. It did not disappoint. Mix tandoori and pakora starters were excellent. The 3 mains we had were amazing, particularly my chilli ginger lamb. Definitely going back. Next time going for the sea bass and punjabi mussels. Really nice chatty friendly people too.

Visited this restaurant with a friend looking forward to a good meal. The restaurant was relatively quiet perhaps due to the football on TV pulling people elsewhere. We were given complementary spiced onions and poppadoms which were a tasty appetiser. We started with a selection of pakora which was good. The lamb noori was also tasty although the garlic nan...

Set in the heart of Glasgow, Punjabi Charing Cross offers a dining experience unique to all. Whether it is for an intimate meal, to take the family out or even to enjoy a curry with a group of friends, our restaurant will provide a unique experience. Why not start your meal with our unique starters which range from delicious keema padora to our much heralded lamb chops or even our freshly cooked fish pakora. Our curries are cooked the punjabi way and retain a unique depth of flavour. Why not try our traditional lamb on the bone or even the chicken equivalent. Other curries such as our lamb chilli ginger and our punjabi garlic chilli provide a unique twist to the classic curry everyone loves. No description of the Punjabi would be complete without mentioning our newest creation:the lamb Gurmeet.With such depth of choice one visit is simply not enough.
