“Great local Indian”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is by far the best of the local Indian restaurants around Kirkintilloch, bishopbriggs etc. I don't think it's part of a chain as some others are, appears to be a family run establishment, now well established in the area.
It's airy, clean and service is good, our waiter was very nice.
Went for a buffet meal although you could have had the a la carte if preferred.
Very Good choice of starters, salads, mains varied, mostly chicken or lamb and a veg option, all well cooked with one exception. Good selection accompaniments, rice, nan, garlic nan etc. nice popadoms !
Worth a mention is the chicken tikka and the red fort lamb I think it was called, fantastic flavours and both very tender. Pudding - again good choices but I couldn't be tempted, too full, had the coffee instead.
Main complaint is the underwhelming veg curry, boring, dry, un imaginative - typical potato, carrot, peas etc not one hint of tina, okra or any other Indian type veg, come on you guys get a grip and as an aside your not alone with the boring veg curry - shame !
However I reiterate that this is probably the best Indian locally.
Wine selection reasonable and price just ok but I find the drinks mark up in most places in general is ridiculous and restaurants should be taken to task over this. The Indian cottage wine is marked up, that's clear however it's not quite as bad as some ! But take note guys give the clientele a break !
If more diners complained / commented about this then perhaps restaurants would start to take notice.

“Best Indian in Bishopbriggs”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Yum yum yum!!!!

Bishopbriggs is spoiled with 3 good Indian restaurants and up until recently I'd have said the Delhi was the best but you have to try taste, it's soo good and In
my opinion even better than the Delhi.

Great value buffet nights are a great way to sample a few dishes, check this place out you won't regret it

“Great Taste”
Reviewed May 6, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant outshines others in the area for taste, quality and service. My wife and I always go 'a la carte' as this I where chef Param gets a chance to show his real skill in balancing authentic indian flavours with quality meat, chicken and veg. The service is very good but staff sometimes try to hard, for some this can be an annoyance and off putting but I see no reason for the spiteful reviews that some 'critics' put on this site other than allegiance to a different business : / My experience has been great and I would not think twice about recommending Taste to you… but do try the a la carte over the buffet , it's a bit like going to an art gallery and looking at posters whilst ignoring the true skill demonstrated in the paintings.

“best in Bishopbriggs”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

What best can I say about this place. Their buffet is massive and all fresh, even their salad bar is unique, the chicken tikka cocktail salad is suberb, they have around 9 starters, i think 9 curries 3 rice and nan and on top is up all delicious cheesecakes and ice cream for under £10. And the atmosphere and service is superb. Beautiful cozy place and as i have a big family, we go there regularly as recently they are so packed, we have started to book tables for us. The South Indian Garlic Chilli Chicken and Garlic mushrooms are to die for. Check this place out and you will know what i am talking about. Staff are fantastic, always helpful and friendly.
