Description: Set in the heart of Glasgow, Punjabi Charing Cross offers a dining experience unique to all. Whether it is for an intimate meal, to take the family out or even to enjoy a curry with a group of friends, our restaurant will provide a unique experience. Why not start your meal with our unique starters which range from delicious keema padora to our much heralded lamb chops or even our freshly cooked fish pakora. Our curries are cooked the punjabi way and retain a unique depth of flavour. Why not try our traditional lamb on the bone or even the chicken equivalent. Other curries such as our lamb chilli ginger and our punjabi garlic chilli provide a unique twist to the classic curry everyone loves. No description of the Punjabi would be complete without mentioning our newest creation:the lamb Gurmeet.With such depth of choice one visit is simply not enough.

“Have the Desi chicken! Gorgeous ”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

Having rooted around for a good Indian restaurant I gave this one a go. Being a fairly dab hand in the kitchen and curry department I'm quite fussy. So I decided to ask for an authentic curry. The chap recommended the Desi chicken, (Desi meaning it's local from where they are) as it was on the bone chicken for maximum flavour and what they would eat themselves. I went for it with some chapattis, it was gorgeous. The chicken was in the bone with a fairly thick and richly flavoured sauce, quite hot but perfectly palatable! The chapattis where lovely and everything was beautifully cooked and service was impeccable. Highly recommended by someone who knows their curries!

Was a Friday night and we booked a table for 2 for 8pm. Loved it! The food was excellent and service great too. We ordered too much food though and felt so guilty for leaving some, but it was delicious! Cannot wait for our next trip to Glasgow to go again :)

“Nothing special”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

I've tried many indian restaurants, and all of them managed to surprise me at any point, however, this one didn't offer anything special, neither on the a la cart, nor the desserts menu.
