We've been going here since it opened s few years ago. Great food, great service. The guys will cater to your tastes and suggest things you will like. Fantastic prices for a city restaurant.

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!

We happened upon this quaint little restaurant in what looks to have been an old pub. The menu was well set out but we were undecided as to what to eat. The waiter approached and we decided to let him guide us in our choices. We are so glad we did as he chose a chicken dish and a lamb... More

We enjoyed a family meal there this evening. Really friendly attentive staff, great portions & tasty food. The fish pakora was fabulous, as was the king prawn bhuna. Everyone ate everything, not the portions were miserable - far from it - because we enjoyed it so much. The loo's could do with a revamp though!

I am here visiting from the United States and stumbled into this wonderful restaurant by chance, was greeted by the very friendly staff and was served the best Indian food in town! Huge delicious naan, great dishes all around, you can't go wrong.
