“Excellent Value Family Restaurant”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Shahed's Tandoori in Union Street Glasgow city centre is one of Glasgow's newest fast food take away restaurants in the already busy takeaway market.

This is the third store of the family owned business who have been in business for over 35 years having the home store in Strathbungo then a few years ago opened their second store in Giffnock and now making its debut in Glasgow city centre.

I ate my first taste of Shaheds when my brothers friend brought some mixed pakora home from the Strathbungo store and I got a few pieces. It was much nicer than other takeaways I tasted. From then when my brothers friend would pass by there after on his way home from work (I do not live in the area) we would ask for more orders.

It was a joy when closer to home the Giffnock store opened. The good thing was that the Giffnock shop sold the exact same things and kept the menu the same and how everything is cooked from the way I expected from Strathbungo. It's evident the family are proud of the business and keeping things the same way that made Strathbungo so successful it's so reassuring.

Now onto actually talking about the Glasgow city centre store. The store just looks like every other takeaway so nothing to note about any glamourously decor or setting. It's simple its functional as your not there for long. It is something I do praise it is clean. A lot of the bigger fast food chains down the street aren't as clean where this place is never dirty at all.

The menu is the same as the other two stores but the only main difference is they have an amazing curry offer. For £4 regular or £5 large (increases by £1 each size later at night) you get a curry choice of meat and either rice, naan or chips. The staff are happy to oblige requests to make curries hotter or milder to your liking no extra charge. This is my go to meal in town now and not been to the large fast food chains in ages. This makes me full and satisfied I've eaten a good cheap value meal.

“Love this place”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Our manager just ordered half the office a chicken fillet burger. Shaheds could one day replace Mcdonalds!

Staff are also excellent.
