The COOKING - yes COKING - is superb in this restaurant. So different from one Glasgow restaurant chain I won't mention the name of where you get the very strong impression that everything is just dumped in a sauce rather than cooked from scratch. For some reason - probably because of the queues we'd seen frequently whilst passing - we'd gained the impression that they didn't accept bookings. Not so. As another reviewer had mentioned, the portions are small. But, as we found, they are not as small as the Indian 'tapas' type portions. We ordered three meals between the two of us, and we couldn't quite finish everything. Thank goodness we'd ordered only a chicken & potato pakora as a starter. We loved the way they left the bean-sized garlic pieces uncrushed. We had leg of lamb (this was off the bone) a king prawn dish, and a chicken. All were delicious. The service was friendly and unobtrusive. The very small selection of wines was absolutely fine. This place is a definite 'find' and we will be going back very soon.

I love, love, love The Den! Faultless curries every time and at great prices too! Don't miss the King Prawn and Monkfish curries, something different from the usual 'Ashoka' fare and the fish is always cooked to perfection! Sometimes a hassle to get in, especially if you're a larger group, but book ahead and you won't regret it!

Booked a table for 4 to dine this evening quite easily, however this place can get packed quite quickly as have walked past a few times and there have been lengthy queues outside. Upon arrival all staff are accommodating, friendly and knowledgable of the menu. Had a lamb and mint main dish which was slightly on the small side compared to my fellow diners dishes, however it was packed with heat and flavour and enjoyed it thoroughly. will highly recommend and will return again hopefully very soon!

A spontaneous lunch for two, perfectly cooked ,simply and elegantly served. monk fish with puy lentils spiced and cooked to retain the delicate texture of the fish. Simple chicken curry just as it says. Plain Nan and boiled basmati completed our simple and delicious meal. Recommended with enthusiasm.
