Visited with five friends. Restaurant was busy and service was a bit slow to start with. However, the staff are friendly and helpful, the food is excellent as is the value for money. Not my first visit and certainly won't be my last.

Thank James I

Absolutely stunning food, one of the best curries I have ever tasted, and my three fellow diners felt the same way. Very friendly and helpful staff, who were attentive and efficient. Don't bother going elsewhere - this is superb 👍🏻

Great curry....Will definitely return,,,, but why only 3 Stars? We had an early dinner as we were going to the Kings Theatre. The food was fantastic it was authentic, Very tasty, Freshly cooked, Good helpings and Friendly service. So why the three star rating? Unfortunately the Toilets let the visit down. They were clean enough but long overdue a refurbish.... More

My wife and I had Punjabi recommended to us, with a promise of authenticity and attention to detail. We ordered a whole host of dishes, and to our delight, each was unique with a bounty of flavour. There's always that one part of a meal that stands out, and for me it was the sea bass. Cooked to perfection it... More

I would agree with previous reviews. The food tastes fresh and flavoursome and the staff are friendly and attentive. The only negative is the decor etc could be better however we would still return as we enjoyed the food.

Visited with workmates on a damp Wednesday. The staff were so friendly and attentive. The food was generous and tasted great. The environment of a converted pub has its rustic rough edges but that's Glasgow in a nutshell; a bit rough, direct but friendly and authentic.

Really enjoyed our meal it was what you want from an Indian restaurant. Tasty plenty of it and good service. Would definitely recommend it especially if you want 'traditional' Glaswegian Indian meal.

I'd visited this place recently with friends and was quite impressed so I decided to take my wife. Oops! Good location in the west end, and staff were really nice. It's in an old pub and feels like it. Could do with being decorated but not really a problem. As before, good food and service. Then my wife visited the... More

Firstly I would like to thank you for visiting the restaurant. We are in the process of refurbishing the toilets at the moment, with 2 cubicles supposed to being blocked off, we are down to one cubicle for the ladies toilet, i think you have got access to the cubicles which are not supposed to be in use. I must... More

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.
