“fantastic food,service and value”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

at first glance this restaurant in one of the shabbier parts of glasgow city centre would not fill you confidence but looks most certainly can be decieving,once inside my good lady and i were welcomed and shown to a nice booth,the groupon voucher that we were using obviously would mean great value but on inspection of the menu prices it was clear to see that any further visits would not break the bank and with the bring your own bottle policy making it all the more tempting to return then you can see there are no down sides, the food was excellent and every care was taken to make sure it was to our individual taste. all in all a very pleasant experiance

“Food outstanding, and friendly, welcoming service!!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Had passed this restaurant once and wanted to try so when a groupon deal came up, I bought it!! We were welcomed into the restaurant very warmly, and given a lovely booth table. We had our own wine (as is BYOB) and the waiter was very quick to open our bottle and bring our glasses. We were given poppadoms and spicy onions to start which were very tasty and the spicy onions very flavoursome and not bland as some can be, had a nice kick.

The menu we were offered as part of the deal was their set menu which I think is available 5-7pm and offered a good variety of starters and mains (and if we wanted anything from alacarte menu wasn't too much more). We both chose chicken pakora which was beautiful and the curries we both ordered were lovely - we were asked how we would like the curries which was a bonus as I prefer my curry to be a bit spicier than my partner so we were able to choose. We had garlic naan and rice and ordered an additional naan to soak up the beautiful sauces from the curries.

Would definitely recommend it to anyone, and the offers they have at lunchtime and early evening are a bargain especially considering they offer BYOB!!

“Bargain at Lunch Time”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We had the 2 course lunch time menu which at £4.95 a head was an absolute bargain. The food was excellent and the service was very efficient. As others have said this is more of a cafe than a restaurant but this is not an issue at lunch time. We did have a little trouble finding it and it was only a couple of doors from where we were staying! I looked at online photos but just couldn't place it - turned out we had actually walked past it on the previous day but, when they are closed they draw all the curtains and pull down a shutter with the result that the place looks like it has closed down which could be why, when we visited, the place there were no other customers.

“Good food, slow but friendly staff.”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Bright, clean surroundings but definitely more of a cafe than a restaurant. Visited on a quiet night, only four tables - including our own occupied - therefore would have expected more of a professional service - which unfortunately - although pleasant - was extremely slow. This criticism aside, the quality and selection of food available was excellent. Freshly made and good sized portions - and vegetarian options were plentiful. Would visit again - based on food quality and value for money - probably at lunchtime as opposed to evening out in town.

“Wasted my time lol”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Wasted my time trying so many different restaurants.
Mama's rasoi is simply the best.
The food is high quality with a peaceful relaxing athmosphere.
A real joy to sit and eat here.
The chef caters for all and there's something for everyone.
The service is fantastic and I would highly recommend. X
