Another great meal. The food is to die for the chicken and fish pakora is the best I have ever had. The lamb just melts in your mouth. Ali is a great host and we got poppodoms and dips free. He always makes you feel so welcome and spends time with you, but not in your face. Its so relaxing and the longest I have spent savouring a meal and there is no problem taking a doggy bag home, I took my daughter which means I now need to take the other one, a good excuse for me returning soon !!!!

As a group of ten people I am happy to report that Charcoal's left each one of us well satisfied with our visit. We had booked a table in advance so had no problems getting a large seating area reserved which was ready even though we arrived slightly early. From there on in the service was exemplary. Drinks were promptly delivered as we perused the reasonably extensive menu, as were some popadoms and dips. Our young waiter was very attentive as we waited for our meals to arrive despite having to deal with strange Norwegian accents and unfamiliarity with the food. All ten of our party declared that they were very satisfied with the food, the service and the surroundings and as the unofficial 'leader'of our trip I was approached by the owner Ali and was given a complimentary single malt as a thank you and all of us of course were given our shots of vodka jellies. The restaurant itself has a cosy feel about it without being ostentatiously decorated and the toilets were clean and fresh. Our Bangladeshi waiter even threw in a brief language lesson so Abdullah and Ali, "Dhon no baad." Definitely a place to visit again.

We were a group of four visiting for the first time. Ali, our host, served us like long time friends and made us very welcome. The food was excellent all round with some additional tastings free of charge. We enjoyed a few beers along the way and we were pleasantly surprised with the final bill. A courtesy drink was offered just before departure. A great night

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Ali and the satff for a fantastic meal on Thursday. Having flown up from Stansted for one night only, it was the perfect end to a great evening!

we are four friends and were in Glasgow for the weekend at the end of November,rang Charcoals after reading the reviews and despite being a busy Saturday night Ali and his colleagues did their utmost to accommodate us. Service and food were excellent, definitely value for money too, will certainly make a return visit and recommend to others.
