“Once again annother AMAZING time at our FAVOURITE indian restaurant!!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

CHARCOALS INDIAN RESTAURANT - An amazing, authentic indian restaurant set in the heart of glasgow's city centre. Was there today again with friends and family had a great time. The service from staff was outstanding especially from the manager "ALI". Couldn't have been any more helpful, polite and happier to serve our table. There attention to detail is superb!!! Staff noticed me giving my mum ice from my glass to chill her wine further and on the next round of drinks a large glass of ice to make sure all our drinks were well chilled!! The food is second to none!!!. So fresh, tasty and value for money!!! Portions sizes are ideal and not too much!!! Can't wait to go again!!! See you guys soon!!!

“Absolutely Brilliant!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

The food & service at this small & intimate restaurant was outstanding. Ali, and, his team, looked after us superbly. The food was quite delicious, plentiful & freshly cooked. We went with a group of work colleagues & we were treated like royalty. This excellent restaurant is centrally located. Ali, was very helpful when we were selecting our dishes & he was keen to ensure that we got the best from our dining experience. This place is a real gem & everyone in our party cannot wait to return to Charcoals for another Indian culinary treat. We all loved this place & it's staff. Absolutely brilliant.

“Value”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Took English business colleagues there earlier this month as they wanted the Glasgow Indian restaurant experience - we weren't disappointed. Excellent service, they even went out of their way to make Haggis Pakora as it wasn't on the menu! Small dishes brought for us to try at no extra cost, great food and value for money was exceptional. Will definately be going back soon
