    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.

    The food was delicious and the portion size was enough for anyone without feeling too full. The service was great especially when my partner asked for a recommendation as she is wary of hot spices. The price was reasonable too. I’ve every intention of going back.

    Great location, very comfortable and good service. Starters delicious, opted for lamb bhunna which was flavoursome but meat not tender enough and found myself chewing which wasn’t great. Husbands was softer though, he had the garlic chilli though so couldn’t taste it as too hot for me.

    KoolBaResponded on June 10, 2022We are really surprised for this feedback. Same table, same family, same red meat with different sauce, how can one dish be chewy, and another soft. The meat for both curries were from same pot so how can one be soft and another chewy? And also you never mentioned anything on the table, rather you hit us with negative feedback on two platforms. Businesses could only rectify their mistake or customers complain when you are inside the restaurant not after going out of the restaurant. Thank you..

    Had buttered chicken which was overcooked and tough.

    KoolBaResponded on April 16, 2022Dear Jim B You had mentioned the same feedback to one of our staff when you were in the restaurant and we explained you that the butter chicken tikka you had is chicken tikka done in tandoor. If you were looking for soft chicken you should have mentioned that to one of our staff. We are more than happy to exchange anything for our customers. Any item done in tandoor is meant be to cooked well. Tikka the words itself means marinated dish done in tandoor. Thank You for coming...
