Sometimes when people rave about a place you can only be let down - not here. Food was excellent as were staff . Busy lunchtime didn't mean less service - will go back!

On a trip to Glasgow and went to Charcoals purely on Trip Advisor reviews. OMG this place is top notch. Waiters were very nice and friendly. Food was quick and taste was SUPERB. The flavours of all courses was amazing. Defo worth a visit.

10 of us went to Charcoals for the Christmas lunch. Ali and his team welcomed us and provided really timely service throughout. We didn't feel rushed at all but didn't feel we were waiting either, just right. The food was fantastic, fresh and delicious. I will definitely be going back in the very near future
