Since moving out of Glasgow we have not been back to the 'Chip" for many years. However, a chance visit to the city brought back the memories of super (and long) lunches so we decided to relive the memory. Well, the pond is still there and this time I stayed out of it (I told you the lunches were good... More

Surprising menu, including local dishes. It is both fit for business and tourist visitors. The portions are just small/large enough and very tasty.

Mother's Day lunch booked one month in advance, specifically booked the main restaurant and the Sunday lunch menu for four. Have ate and drank at the chip frequently over the years, generally it's been informal, Friday/Saturday evenings and the odd Sunday lunch after a stroll round the botanics with my mother and sister. Trouble started the Friday before the booking,... More

My fiance and I went here for a celebratory meal on a Wednesday evening. I've lived in Glasgow for 7 years and always planned to visit thanks to the top-notch reviews, both online and by word of mouth, and we weren't disappointed. The interior is spacious, elegant, tastefully lit and accommodates all clientele with a perfectly table-dressed restaurant for formal... More

My wife and I have been eating at the Ubiquitous Chip for over 40 years now. I say The Ubiquitous Chip but in actual fact the Chip we first started going to was over a hundred yards away on the other side of Byres Rd down Ruthven Lane. As an eating out experience it was something completely different from the... More

My brother and i brought our mum here for dinner last Saturday. We were seated in the gorgeous courtyard area, it's so pretty! The front of house and waiting staff were all really attentive without hovering and full of information about the food and drink selections. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The home made bread and goats... More

The food was good, not exceptional, nicely presented, friendly staff, but irritating... Booking fee off £10.00 per person in case of no show and £25.00 fine for anyone in your party who doesn't turn up. We booked a table for 7p.m. and we're told we had to leave by 9.15p.m

The food was great, and the service and facilities too. It is a little bit pricey, but they have menus for lunch and dinner during weekdays which are a great deal.
