    The starters were good but unfortunately they had a power cut before our main meal. The rice arrived cold and we asked for it to be warmed up but it came back the same as our curry was already out we all just ate the cold rice. The curry itself was ok not brilliant iv had better at my local takeaway to be honest. Like all restaurants the drink prices are high but you expect that. Would I return no I don’t think I would.

    Second time here, first time was for my birthday and we had the Persian platter which was fabulous. The people were marvellous and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Second time we just had to come back and try the curries and we weren't disappointed. Absolutely delicious. Our new favourite Indian restaurant!

    Had a lovely dinner date here with my partner. The staff are incredibly kind and welcoming, the interior had a lovely Persian vibe with authentic music gently playing in the background. The curries we both had were absolutely delicious and packed with flavour. Everything was freshly prepared and the value for money was ideal. We will most certainly be back

    The portions of food are very good but I didn't like the fact that the chips are not fresh potatoes but frozen. Pakora was good but I didn't like the flavour of my main course. veg Bhuna ! my husband had butter chicken which he thought was good.

    Probably the best Indian food in Glasgow. The staff are so friendly and make you feel so welcome. If there’s any criticism, it’s the time between starters and mains could be a bit longer. Portions are just the right size.
