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...

Booked for the first time. The food was lovely, you get great big portions and is presented well. The only issue was the place lacked atmosphere. The staff weren't all that friendly, for a Saturday night it was so quiet. We waited ages on the bill. Other than that it was a nice meal.

Came upon this restaurant by chance and decided to try it. Decor unusual, leather armchairs etc. Staff were very welcoming. Food was very nice and pricewise very good. Would definitely return.

My wife and I stumbled accross this place whilst on a train from Edinburgh to Glasgow, and searching Google and Trip Advisor for good food. It was quiet being a Tuesday evening and we were seated and served immediately. The food was very reasonably priced, unlike more central Glasgow city restaurants. We were staying at the Charing Cross Premier Inn... More

I only found this place because of Trip Advisor. It's a quiet place and certainly deserves being discovered. The service was good, the food was freshly cooked and excellent. A wonderful blend of sauces and spices. Really good curry. Thank you!

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.
