If you don't like fresh corriander you need to make your choice carefully. We liked the lamb, the chiken, the rise and the bread. Everything was really good and spicy. If you don't like... More

Lovely meal here. It's so nice to go to an Indian restaurant without the usual dishes. The starters were delicious and set us up nicely for the main. We are both vegetarian and we were delighted with our meals. To crown it all we had a great seat at the window, looking out at the City Halls, and a very... More

Simply the best Indian food I have had anywhere! We had a party of 16, and the service was still great. 3 couples ordered 3 appetizers and 5 entrees to share, which was plenty of food. We tried chicken,steak, and seafood and all were very, very good. Order the bread as well - it is excellent. Also, the very hot... More

Hi, today myself and my colleague had been to this restaurant which stated was authentic South Indian.

Regarding Sambhar, I was completely disappointed. It was just kind... More

The best Indian meal you can get in Glasgow. the food is always great and not your standard British attempt. Full of flavour and the giant pancakes are wonderful.

Dined here recently with my other half. They have a large menu with lots of options. We shared 2 starters and both were lovely. For mains we shared a chicken dosa and one of the spicy lamb curries. Both of which were delicious. While we were waiting on our starters to arrive we were given some poppadoms and selection of... More

As a recently diagnosed celiac patient, I was thrilled to find a completely gluten-free restaurant. It felt great to be able to peruse the entire (extensive) menu knowing I could eat anything on there! We received excellent customer service and everyone's food was delicious.

Most Indian Restaurants I have visited have focus send on North Indian cuisine. This one is different, in a good way. The waiter was very helpful with the menu. Overall a very pleasant experience and good value.
