Always incredible food and atmosphere. Food is very well priced and plenty of it. One rice between two is plenty and service is excellent.

A'List' recommendation, and I would have probably passed by because the restaurant is unassuming, but you get a great welcome going in the door and although we hadn't booked we could have a table as long as we vacated within two hours which was not a problem. Went for the pre theatre and the four of us got a range... More

Today we decided to treat ourselves to a lunchtime deal at Charcoals & probably the best decision we could have made. We didn't book a table (we will next time) but were seated within 2 minutes. The service was very quick & the food delicious, ample amount of main course for a lunchtime treat. Would definitely recommend & will be... More

All of us loved our food, mouth watering just so different for an Indian..... we pretty much tried something we normally... More

I can't remember what the curry was called but it was a fruity one and probably the best curry I've ever had. Service was great, we turned up without a booking on a busy Saturday night and we're expecting to be turned away, but the staff were lovely and we only had to wait a few minutes before they got...

I visited with my husband and eight year old for dinner on a recent trip to Glasgow. We decided to give it a go after reading some of the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We booked a table with Open Table and our table was reserved with no issues. All of the dishes were very tasty and well presented and we... More

Went for our usual bi-monthly trip to Glasgow to meet family and we went to our usual Indian Restaurant. Love this place, friendly, they always remember you, even if you only go every 2-3 months, food is always superb, full of flavour and they willing to make off menu dishes like Chicken Shaslick, which is best in Scotland. Same again... More

Can never fault the quality of the food, the service and pure VFM that this place offers, and right in the city centre. Fantastic lunch and the set menu at 6.95 a head is a steal. The attentive service and 'wee extras' just make this place a definite top of the list choice. Well done again !!
